Speaking Topics Include

Verbal Communication

Vehicles break down and sensible people call in the fixers; specialised mechanics that repair the damage and off you go. Funny isn’t it how often communication breaks down? Speaking is a faculty yet communication is an art. Are you blessed with that faculty and still left scratching your head when misunderstandings hold up production and cost you money?


Time and Personal Management

‘I’ll have to make time,’ or ‘there’s never enough time,’ and timeless other excuses. A recent survey revealed that Australians are wasting more than a whole day of work in any given week e-mailing, surfing the net and office chit chat.


A study of 1000 employees by recruiting firm Talent 2 shows half of those surveyed said that they ‘regularly’ wasted time at work. 42 % said that they believed that they could get their work done in less time if they didn’t waste time on the job.


Time wasting is not always negative because of taking a break or social interaction with colleagues being sometimes therapeutic. However, if the reality is that a full day is being wasted, then chances are that there is job dissatisfaction brought on by boredom or stress. You can’t manage time because the clock just keeps ticking regardless. You can manage the events in that time though and that’s what will separate you from the rest.


Prioritising tasks is the key and recognising what must be done, what could be done and what would be nice to do is one sure-fire way of reducing stress. John explains the quadrants of important versus urgent and shows you how to put your life into perspective.


Customer Service

Happy people come back for more! It’s the experience that they buy first and then your product. This enormous army of shoppers consists of individuals looking for a memorable contact before signing any kind of contract. Do you have satisfied customers or do you always have to rely on new business?


Because you sell a product or service doesn’t guarantee that these people will buy. And because you might have sold to them once doesn’t guarantee repeat business. Customers need to be treated as though every time is like the first exciting and memorable experience for them.

How are you meeting and greeting these wonderful people who determine whether you stay in business? Are members of your staff using meaningless phrases used ad infinitum by bank tellers who say the words, ‘how are you today?’ and would be quite shocked for somebody to launch into a breakdown of their health.


There are ways to make any human contact interesting and to treat your customers as VIP’s, which they are, requires a little originality. Once people appreciate how their attitude can affect results, they change their approach. Your team can learn the difference between a positive and a negative impact that will make customers become a part of your business.


Selling Skills

Allowing people to buy is the art of selling! Following a script is OK as long as you can get your ego out of the way long enough to listen to what it is that they want.

Moving sales people along the road of the three milestones is vital in improving them from wannabes to achievers. Selling is a game and when played well can be enjoyable. Understanding the milestones can help the transition enormously.


1. Starry eyed enthusiasm

2. Sophisticated confusion

3. Mature simplicity


These are the stages in the life cycle of successful sales people. Many never make it to the third stage. The third milestone comes when the focus is off the salesperson and onto the customer, or potential buyer. The KISS (keep it simple stupid) principle is a universal cliché, but understanding how to make the message easy to grasp from the customer’s point of view is essential for successful selling.


John has explained this homespun philosophy to many sales teams and the results have been far reaching. Motivation plays a big part, but as John says, that comes from within. Nobody can motivate another person! Inspiration is John’s enthusiastic weapon and he aims that with unerring accuracy. As a result, people are charged with the energy to make a difference.


Train the Trainer

Getting people to do what successful trainers do in order to continue the succession can be vital to production and prosperity. It’s not enough for a trainer to know his or her stuff and expect that when they demonstrate, others will pick up the ‘how’ to do it themselves. The old mantra needs to be adhered to.


Lesson plans need to be focused on the learner, stating the conditions, indicating the actions expected and resulting in a finished product or anticipated outcome. Whatever training you require to be passed down to others; be it health and safety; induction process or following guidelines, there is a way of transferring that knowledge. If it’s important to your organisation
