The Infomercial activity would have to be rated one of the best activities the team has done, it was great to see everyone come out of their comfort zone and get involved. A VERY fun activity! Well done Anthony!
Kelly Coleman, Events Manager, Commonwealth Bank
Once again Anthony provided a stimulating and productive session which culminated in a motivated and cohesive sales team. Anthony can work wonders!
Simon Abbott, National Sales Manager, Allergan
"The 'above & below the
line thinking' and in particular the 'CAGE' — the self limiting beliefs were
part of my team's language that afternoon when we looked at how our team could
go from good to great. Overall, we felt that it was a valuable session to walk
away with some practical concepts to work with immediately."
Priya Darshan, Sales Manager, Eli Lilly & Company

Speaking Topics Include
Diagnosing & Treating Attitude Sickness
Participants explore the concept of positive attitude and its impact on life outcomes. Framed in a light-hearted context of a "medical consultation", participants write their own prescriptions for positive change and attitude improvement.

In order to understand the true impact of the individual in a truly cohesive and high performing team, we unravel the definition of "team", explore the 4 stages, and workshop the critical elements of a highly successful team.
Trust — the Forgotten Value
Trust has enormous impact on our results, relationships & retention of good staff.

Is THAT What You Mean?
Poor communication explains a lot of things in our lives — including poor performance & failed relationships. This fun keynote explores how to use and interpret the 3 fundamental aspects of language — our bodies, the words we choose & how we choose to use them.
Disarm the Bomb — Resolving Conflict
Using the analogy of war, we explore how conflict can destroy working relationships, productivity and motivation in the workplace. Delegates learn how to disengage conflict by starting with the only real thing they truly control — themselves.
Making Goals Matter
Anyone can set a goal but how many goals become reality? This keynote goes above & beyond "SMART" goals. We explore how the subconscious mind plays the vital role in marrying "technical" goals with emotive performance drivers, to help make our dreams a reality.

Rapport is the very first step in any relationship, and the step most often fumbled. We explore the critical success factors in building and maintaining rapport with anyone.

We're ALL in the Selling Game!
Would you like YOUR team to think more about how they are "selling" to the end user? This keynote is perfect for customer service & other "internal" teams who don't believe they need to sell. We explore the basics of the game — the who, what, how, why & when and arm our participants with tools & belief in their ability to meet their customers' needs.
The Art of Self Sabotage
This keynote awakens participants to the one fundamental truth of stress — we bring it upon ourselves. We explore how to avoid hitting the self destruct button and deal positively with stress, anxiety & negative self talk to truly change our professional & personal lives.
