The Right Presentations For Your Event

My expertise in terms of presentations and business presentations stems from a combination of three main elements- firstly, I’ve worked with developing people for over 30 years, having twice been awarded as the Professional Speakers Association educator of the year. Secondly, I’ve worked with hundreds of businesses and thousands of employees, especially in team leader development, with my expertise in this field being represented in seven published books including “The Art of Persuasive Influence” and “Navigating Courageous Conversations”. And lastly, having seen my fair share of subject matter experts deliver great content in a dreary fashion, I’ve worked to create professional and engaging presentations which has seen me reach the status of “Certified Speaking Professional” (CSP)- one of only 10 in New Zealand.

These three factors combine to mean that my presentations are insightful, engaging, and memorable. But I don’t stop there! All of my presentations are customised to the specific organisation or industry that I’m speaking to, by interviewing senior members of the industry and those closer to the frontline in order to tailor my content specifically to the needs of the audience- added to the first three elements, that’s what makes me a fourth dimensional speaker!

Courageous Conversations Presentation

"Navigating Courageous Conversations!" (A Roadmap for dealing with Tough Topics and People) What’s the biggest pain point for most people in today’s workplace? With over 30 years in people development, I have consistently seen team leaders in multiple industries and professions struggle with the same issue: conducting courageous conversations. In this presentation based on my book “Navigating Courageous Conversations! A Roadmap for Addressing Tough Topics (and People!)”, I demystify the subject and give people clear and simple tools to equip their confidence and ability to handle challenging conversations.

Health & Safety Presentation

"Stop Focusing on People Speaking Up!!" (The Next Chapter in the Health & Safety Journey) Is it time to stop beating the drum of telling people to ‘Speak Up’ when it comes to hazards, near misses, and incidents? In this presentation I address the ‘new drum’ of how much safer we will be working in the next evolutionary stage of H&S where we place increased emphasis on the person being ‘spoken up to’ who needs to be open to influence, based on my book “The Art of Persuasive Influence”. In this presentation I share my own dramatic journey of my father being involved in a work-related incident that changed our family forever, and the difference that it would have made if he had workmates that were prepared to speak out, and if he was the kind of guy that was open to their message.

Behavioural Styles Presentation

"What's Wrong with You?!?” (Working with Behavioural Styles) Why do some people just rub you up the wrong way? Why are others such a joy to be around? Behavioural Styles is by far my most popular and entertaining workshop content that has been requested by businesses over the years in presentation form. During this presentation, based on my book “Little Red Racing Hood- A Tale of Four Behavioural Styles”, I have people moving around the room and laughing at each other and themselves in such a way that leaves people talking about their “Colours” long after the conference has concluded.

Above The Line Presentation

"Living and Leading Above the Line!"- (Lifting the ‘Ownership Bar’ for Yourself and Others) What is the impact of your team when they don’t think and act with full responsibility? What would be the result in your key metrics if people took full ownership? Having been fired from every job I’d had until my mid-20’s, I know what it’s like to live ‘Below the Line’, and having experienced a dramatic shift to ‘Above the Line’ thinking, I know the positive impact both professionally and personally of such a change. This presentation, based on elements from my book “The Art of Persuasive Influence”, identifies why we live ‘Below the Line’, and what it takes to shift ourselves (and others) to more productive ‘Above the Line’ thinking and action.
