As a motivational speaker, my keynote talks have inspired thousands of professionals to understand how they can use ‘mental toughness’ to be more successful in today’s competitive markets, starting NOW.

I act as a catalyst for change by using real-world strategies and tactics to help executives face up to making tough decisions, leaders motivate their teams and business development teams sell more through the power of storytelling (or story selling as I like to call it!) I also address the increasingly blurred lines between professional and personal life by encouraging delegates to not only get past feelings of self-doubt and uncertainty in business but also in life – whether they want to lose weight, engage more with their children or simply ‘work smarter’ for a better lifestyle.

My mantra #brutalhonesty: Your results are up to YOU!

And I don’t do things by halves. I believe your teams should be fired up, your customers should love you and your business should make more money – and this can only be achieved by truly empowering people to unlock their own motivation and be able to tell compelling stories that make an emotional connection.

My presentations combine high-level commercial intelligence with inspirational tips, killer success strategies and powerful stories. Your teams will not only enjoy your event but will leave with their heads buzzing with practical tools that they can use right away to help them Be More, Do More & Achieve More. My clients describe me as “dynamic”, “inspirational” and “engaging”; what I know is that I will get your teams participating so that they are doing as well as listening.

My four core motivational talks can be adapted for your event – or elements of each brought together in a completely unique format. Each talk addresses the same issues and strategies but from a slightly different perspective.

Be More, Do More, Achieve More: #100DayHabit for better business and a better quality of life

How long does it take to reach your business goals? Respond to changing market demands? Be more productive at work? Reduce your work-related stress? Give up smoking? Eat more healthily? Get fit? Be a better parent? Learn to be happy? The answer is not clear. It has often been said that change happens in an instant and that, of course, is true, but that doesn’t mean it lasts.

Since having a health scare and two children, I had put on weight. Fast forward a few years and I wasn’t feeling great, so I decided to do something about it. I even wrote about it publicly so that I couldn’t back down. I started to do exercise and eat more healthily and I abstained from junk food… for a few days. And then I would fall off the wagon. And then I would abstain. And then I would fall off the wagon. You get the idea. The issue at hand was that I had built up bad habits and gotten used to a certain type of behaviour. And if you want to be successful at anything, you need change to stick.

The #100dayhabit is a methodology for claiming back your life. For claiming back the life that you could have, the successes that you can have, the results that you want. It is designed to literally help you Be More, Do More & Achieve More. It is a simple and powerful 5 step commitment to doing what it takes for 100 days to turn the actions that you want in your life into sustainable habits that stick for better business and a better quality of life.

Be More, Do More, Sell More – Build confidence, increase mental toughness and grow your business

The world changed. Business today is more challenging. Pretending that what you’ve always done will cut the mustard is not good enough. Tough times require mental toughness and many business development people are struggling to make the sales they have in the past. Learn why most salespeople fail and how you can make the quantum leap to sales superstar.

Your salespeople will be engaged by my ‘in the trenches’ experience from sales rookie to European top seller. They can start applying these principles straight away to better engage clients, build long-term relationships, create more value and close more deals.

Packed full of proven techniques and real-world strategies this high energy, laugh out loud talk will set your next conference alight and give your sales teams the tools and skills they need to win more profitable clients and make more sales in any economy.

Be More, Do More, Lead More – Achieve your goals by believing in and valuing yourself

From the biggest lies we tell ourselves to multi-media addiction, from delusions about ability to claims about our motivation, we all find it difficult to realise our ambitions. I share real-world strategies and concepts that will help motivate and inspire your people to be more successful by dreaming bigger and knowing how to make those dreams a reality.

This programme will show you and your people how to control their emotions, avoid common pitfalls, be more motivated, improve efficiency, lead more effectively and achieve business and personal goals. It will demonstrate how critical thinking can empower you to achieve success by asking more powerful, challenging questions of themselves and others and adopting a winning mindset to build winning beliefs that deliver results.

In my usually storytelling style, I share fascinating insights into how the thinking patterns of top performers are different and how you can leverage these to achieve personal and cultural change. If you want your people to embrace the impossible and make it possible then this is the keynote for you.

Be More, Do More, Share More – Facts tell, stories sell

Do you find it difficult to achieve real connection with your customers, clients, employees or stakeholders? Do you struggle to take control of your own mindset? Skills-based, linear sales training is all about using the left brain, which controls reason and logic, to ask the right questions and manage objections. I have spent years teaching people these skills and have realised that there is some of the ‘magic’ of closing a deal missing. I naturally use right brain emotion to connect, communicate, influence and persuade – and this is the bit that really matters. Getting people to open up to you emotionally, whether that is your family, your clients or your colleagues, is the key to encouraging them to take action. The stories you tell yourself are also important. When I am trying to motivate and inspire people, I tell personal stories that they can relate to – and that is exactly what this memorable and live talk is jam-packed with.

The old adage that ‘facts tell and stories sell’ is more relevant now than ever. Selling in 2017 is not about keeping your cards close to your chest; the more you share, the more you will receive. I use my ‘4 S Principle’ – share sales success stories – to practically illustrate how you can have emotional resonance with the people you want to influence so that they not only remember your stories, but pass them on.
