At heart, I’m an introvert and yet, the word most often used to describe me is 'inspiring' not because I think I'm anything special but because I've shown many people in business how to inspire and influence others. When it comes helping people in business to influence other people in business, the methodologies I'e developed over my 25 years in the professional sales arena just work outstandingly well.
I like to get things done quietly and let the results do the talking, e.g. I've been fortunate enough to be recognised with multiple 'Distinguished Achievement' and special CEO ‘Outstanding Business Contribution’ awards in a variety of companies including S&P 100 and FTSE 100 organisations by teaching people the most professional and ethical ways to influence others.
Originally from humble beginnings and a fairly tough background, I invested in my education and developed the skills to work in, consult, coach and lead a wide range of businesses and people: from helping cutting edge high tech startups to create industry firsts, turning around mid-size traditional businesses that went on to be sold to market leaders and as a senior advertising executive with S&P 100 and FTSE 100 global communication companies, where I led teams to grow sales revenues from zero to nearly £20m pa, including leading multi-million-pound impact transformation programmes.
These kind of results were satisfying for sure but the biggest thrill for me has always been in helping individuals and teams lift their spirits, confidence, self-belief, selling skills and their performance, to realise more of their potential and achieve things they previously thought weren't possible. My files are full of such stories and it's these sincere 'thank you messages' that give me the most satisfaction.
This has been made possible because throughout my career, I've invested extensively in the study of sales & management psychology and more recently, the insights around influence coming from neuroscience research, not just to influence my thinking for personal benefit but also, to learn how to effectively and ethically influence the thinking habits of others for mutual benefit, whether they be clients, people working above, alongside or under my leadership.
What I help people with now is what I've used - mind hacks and micro-strategies that include proven frameworks, practical workable principles, innovative tools and interventions for the real world today, backed with the latest scientific research, things that anyone can put into practice to make a positive difference in their careers, teams, businesses and in fact, in other aspects of their lives too.
From my experience over the last 20+ years, I know without question that success doesn't have to be as hard as some people make it, where tension and excessive pressure with its associated stress are the norm and rarely is true success about the money or power. Those people who achieve the highest respect and admiration from the people they lead or work alongside are the ones who show that success can be achieved in a more mindful, calm, considered, respectful and wise way.
What you really want to know though is 'can I really help you achieve what you want personally with less effort, hassle, pressure, stress and in less time than traditional methods' i.e. no BS or false promises?
Whatever level people reach in life, I believe that everyone can be and do more, and often with less effort or stress so why not get in touch, use the link below for a no-obligation exploratory conversation with me in the first instance, and all in total confidence of course.
Here, you will get a feel for why I love to develop sales managers and entrepreneurs, i.e. by developing you, the people you lead will develop and the combined power of your influence has the potential to produce awesome collective impacts. You'll see my style, which doesn't suit everyone I know but the truth is, it's helped many individuals and teams to smash it in business and in life.
Even if you're not sure how to break with conventional thinking and conventional behaviours that get conventional (average) sales results you can learn how to be different with my coaching and mentoring, good different. It take no extra effort but can enable you to achieve the results you should be achieving and here's the thing, you are capable of more, better, stand out results with the right help.
You may be one of those who attended my keynote speech 'The Neuroscience of Mind Hacks' and my Strong Minds book signing at the ExCel London but even if not, this should give you a feel for the reception of people who came up to the stage afterwards. Many people also enrolled in my Personal Leadership Mastery online course within 24 hours of this event.
