Colin’s contribution to this year’s property Management Conference not only fulfilled our expectations but, in fact, far outweighed them. His presentation gave our conference an absolute spark. The quality, popularity and inclusiveness of the presentation ensured that the audience was not only extremely well-informed but thoroughly enjoyed the way the message was delivered. Colin generated an atmosphere of learning, fun, enjoyment and, most of all, participation.

You are ten times better than you think
Motivation is about realising you are the B.E.S.T. ie Big, Exciting, Smart and Talented – seeing a picture of your bigger and better self, giving bigger and better service and having bigger and better relationships at work. Filled with stories and outlandish stage fun with audience members, this will have your audience talking about the conference for months and – being better.
You are your A.S.S.E.T.S.
This is no ordinary customer service yack, yack, yack. Here’s the gist of it: He gets your people to focus on their A-Appearance so they never suffer from store blindness. Your people will know why eye contact and S-Smiling is fundamental to human interaction and none of your customers will be left stranded again. Colin will teach your people the language of S-Sounding happy to help and you wait til he goes to town on E-Enthusiasm. They’ll be leaping out of their socks. It’s hard to describe here but he will have your team performing ‘No! T-Thank YOU !!’ for months. When Colin rams home the philosophy of the S-Servant heart you’ll see a few red faces but you’ll get customer service performance like you’ve never seen from then on.

What’s your story?
Everything is story. You are the sum total
of your stories so far. So is your business, your club, your association. And
the same is true for your family, your religion, your entire values system.
If you have a sick culture, you either have a sick story or you had a good story and you’ve forgotten it. If you have a healthy culture, you can only keep it that way by reinvigorating your story. If you don’t have a good story that captures your culture, you’d better get one fast before you and your precious history die out. Colin is the master story teller. He will hold you spell-bound as he teaches you the importance of stories for building the culture you want most.
