Breaking the cycle of unproductive meetings

I show leaders and their teams how to cut their meetings in half
and double the results
.... because no-one ever said "Fantastic! Another meeting".

After hearing David speak in Singapore:

The thing I liked about David’s presentation today was that it was simple, yet effective.

And man, I laughed!

I laughed and laughed and laughed!

But I remembered what he said.

I show you how to own the room when you speak.

My unique model works on design and delivery and creates powerful speakers and presenters.  The model saves huge amounts of time going from draft to a powerful and polished finished product.

Workshops and Training

I run in-house tailored learning & development programs where people learn as well as laugh.

More laughing – more learning!

My programs are practical, relevant and streetwise and have content people can apply as soon as they walk out the door.

Chairperson for Hire

I chair meetings when there are contentious issues, conflict, procedural technicalities or difficult people. All of these can make it difficult for internal Chairs or people who lack confidence or experience.

Hire me to be an impartial, external Chair so your meeting gets results.

Strategy Meeting Facilitation

You can’t ride two bikes at the same time. Neither can a participant in a strategy meeting be the facilitator as well – it just does not work.

As a professional external facilitator, I bring process, insight and energy to make sure you get the best possible result.

David is amazing. With just a few simple things, he had me presenting in a way I have never done before. Using the tips David taught me I now have a sales conversion rate of between 30% and 40% every time I present.
