How to Persuade Anyone To Do Anything (well, almost!): Getting your messages heard, believed, and acted on is a key business skill. Whether you’re in a leadership role, a salesperson, trying to get teams to work together, or to get buy-in for projects and resources, you need to be able to engage and persuade your colleagues and clients.
Making Networking Work: Almost all businesses will say that ‘word of mouth’ is crucial to their sales and business development, and everyone knows that having a strong network is key to personal and professional success. And yet almost no business has a ‘Networking Strategy’ for growth, and most people dread the idea of actively networking.
Grown-Ups Don’t use PowerPoint: The world is full of bad presentations and sales pitches, and they’re costing your business a fortune. Poor presentations waste people’s time, can slow down sales cycles and projects, add to endless pointless meetings and create confusion and procrastination. Worse, the presenter is often dull and flat and takes ages to get their point across (if they ever do!).
"Lee is magic - literally! His presentations are engaging, hilarious and very, very useful."
