Story Selling For Leaders. Elite communication strategies that influence and change minds

Would you like your communications with clients, teams and stakeholders to be more influential? Your presentations to have more impact? And your conversations to create stronger connections and be more motivational and persuasive? Getting people to open up to you emotionally, whether that is your clients, your staff or even your family, is the key to encouraging them to take action. I use my ‘Story Selling’ principles to practically illustrate how you can have the emotional resonance with the people you want to influence so that they not only remember your stories but take action and pass them on. If you are a leader, salesperson or just someone who wants to communicate more effectively, this session is a must.

Anthony Leaper

Being agile as a fast growing new business area, in a company constantly changing

Covering the approaches to turning around a declining business, generating the belief and culture that you can succeed in order to stop attrition and return to growth. Then to achieve results exploiting the opportunities for growth across a bigger business or market segment when the environment supporting that growth then continuously changes. When the key to your success is sales teams understanding your value proposition but that positioning changes faster than you can rewrite the sales boot camp. How using technology to maintain and drive a pulse on constant execution focus and yet having to deal with the need to change that focus constantly. This is a reality across so many businesses today so how do you change operating practices in your sales approaches for today’s realities, what technologies can help, how do you change the relationship between your teams and your customers so everyone can keep up with what’s happening, react to those sudden situations that can destroy future results.

Seema Menon

Single Stitch Pitch

Sales person meets the client, pitches the idea and looks for cues of interest from the client. Representation has been made by the sales person, but it has not anchored well enough as a compelling pitch to move the client to the next level of buying. Sales person continues his own 'flog to exhaustion' in subsequent meetings including re-engineering his business proposition but client’s response is anaemic. Single Stitch Pitch is a metaphor that aims to emphasise the concern and significance of the very first pitch with the client that must have enough firepower to potentially seal his immediate wound and invigorate his interest in your firm. So how does one engender the Single Stitch Pitch? Welcome to the presentation.


16.15 - 16.45
