Six Steps to Success
Based on my Find | Define | Refine approach, you'll be talking like a TED speaker in six simple steps
Here we discuss the purpose & relevant details of your upcoming presentation, pitch or talk. We’ll determine the key information& get clear on the specific outcome you seek.
We meet & talk although you’ll do most of the talking! I’ll listen, ask questions & while mining your experiences together, we’ll tease out those gems that lay within you.
In this stage things start to take good shape. With your stories uncovered you’ll categorise the findings from stage 02 into distinct headings & you’ll begin to stock your Story Shelf.
We work your stories into your presentation pitch or talk. We’ll define your key message, create your message map & utilise my Inspiration Curve as a framework for your content.
At this point you’ll have your talk ready & will be identifying any pain points that you still have with sharing your story. Any remaining blocks you’ll flag for obliteration.
In our final meeting, we’ll demolish any remaining blocks that have been flagged & polish your delivery for maximum impact! This includes the physical & vocal aspects of your presentation.
In this 1 day workshop you'll learn:
The science behind why stories work
How to identify the story gems within you
How to catalog your stories into distinct themes
How to craft and delivery your story to inspire your audience

Thanks for visiting, I am glad you took the time to drop by to learn more about me and what I do. I think the above summarises my work quite neatly. I'm passionate about empowering others through the power of the story and it is through sharing my own story that I discovered its potential to fuel my own growth and business journey. As a collaborator and entrepreneur I am passionate about innovative ideas and good business. This has spurned some other ventures including my recent company Medietas Ltd.
When not speaking, or working on projects I relish every opportunity to learn new things from my children, who never cease to amaze me. I enjoy action-packed holidays in the city and calm sunshine holidays when I’m reflecting. Intersperse that all with some exploration and I’m a very happy man. I also thoroughly enjoy writing my blog. Relaxing with close friends and family is a must and I’m partial to nice bottle of Scotland’s finest; Auchentoshan – Three Wood.
Lastly, I love meeting new positive and ambitious people like you and finding new ways to add value to your journey. So, please don’t hesitate. Contact me below to find out how we can work together.
Look forward to working with you soon.
