I show you how to own the room whenever you speak
and how to get remarkable results from your meetings
I'm like your personal trainer for speaking and meetings
My clients engage me because I'm a recognised expert in 2 areas
Speaking, Presentation & Pitch Coach
Most managers, executives and salespeople speak confidently. But the really impressive ones inspire and influence.
There’s a huge gap between just speaking confidently, and being truly inspirational, influential and memorable.
I work in that space – I transform ordinary people into great speakers who own the room whenever they speak or make a pitch. And I do it fast.
Less meetings, shorter meetings,
No one ever said, ‘Fantastic! Another meeting!’ The vast majority of people sit on a continuum ranging from polite tolerance to abject hatred of meetings.
Research shows that a staggering 70% of decisions made in meetings never get implemented and most people don’t realise. Do you know your actual implementation rate?
People want fewer, shorter, & better meetings – meetings that actually achieve something. Not just talkfests. I show managers and their teams how to halve the number of meetings and double the results. Yes. It’s absolutely possible.
Impartial Chairman for
Difficult or Tricky Meetings
When you have a contentious or tricky meeting you don’t have to be Einstein to realise you need a strong and experienced person in the chair. But you also need total impartiality.
No matter how good the chair may be, if they’re part of the group they’ll be seen to be biased, even if they’re not.
I bring 40 years of experience in chairing meetings of all types. I bring appropriate process & procedure in a fair, firm and focused way so I get your meeting to clear conclusions.
Impartial Strategic Planning Facilitator
There’s usually one reason why executive teams use an internal facilitator. To save money. It’s false economy.
You simply can’t be a participant as well as facilitate. You can’t ride two bikes at the same time.
Facilitation is a body of knowledge. A unique skill. It’s about managing the energy in the room. It’s about bringing the right processes at the right time to harness the knowledge, experience and wisdom of everyone. Its way more than just “brainstorming”.
A great facilitator should be almost invisible. It’s about the group – not the facilitator.
Content Rich, Humorous Keynote Speaker
Keynote speaking and conference presentations need to leave the audience with something to take away. They need to strike the magic balance between giving enough content, and engaging and entertaining the audience.
Audiences are tired of fluff. They want good solid practical information they can use. But they also want to be entertained.
I specialise in the after lunch “graveyard shift” – I wake up audiences and keep them awake.
