Accelerate: The rhythm of high performing teams
Many organisations need their teams to come together fast, and create traction in getting results. We often hear how teams takes too long to produce the desired results because their members have come from different backgrounds, have varying capabilities, and may have not worked together before. The key lies in having the team determine the team culture they want and giving them permission to design and implement a high performing team culture. Drawing on his experience in training and creating High Performance Teams across 29 countries, Ian designed his keynote to disrupt thinking about what a collaborative High Performance team looks like, and showcases the results they can achieve.

Captivating the audience with his unique prop, Ian shares powerful business development laws and skills weaved seamlessly to his journey to master not only the speedball, but achieve consistency in sales performance.
Advocate: The rhythm of creating raving fans
The organisation does not pay salaries; the customer does! And the customer will not remember what your staff member said, but instead how they made them FEEL. Only one thing is required to turn customers into raving fans and advocates who gladly refer you to others; presence.
