Current Talks

  • The Secret to Working Less and Earning More

    A practical exploration of the 80/20 “pareto” principle.

    Duration: 10-45 minutes
    Audience Size: Small groups up to 20 with interaction / Large groups as a presentation
    Audience Type: Owners or staff of small-medium businesses selling products or service

    Description: All effort is not created equal. Understanding where effort is being mis-placed on tricky customers or price-wars; and how to move ‘up the curve’ into the zone of niche and premium service and products.

    We also understand that there are people out there with the money to spend, through
    practical, real-world examples.

    Goals: Educating business owners and staff about the disconnect between effort and reward. Attendees go away with a firm action to buy more time back in their business/life.

  • Discover Your 80/20 Vision

    Learn to see better, and begin making fast, accurate decisions.

    Duration: 20-120 minutes
    Audience Size: 10-200 : Small group and pairs participation is encouraged
    Audience Type: Owners of mature/maturing small-medium businesses selling products or service

    Description: Success in business comes from making fast, accurate decisions. Even with 20/20 vision, you can’t always see where your decisions will lead. This presentation introduces “80/20 vision”… so you will begin to see more than the eye can see, focus on whatreally matters and make those all-important decisions with confidence.

    Goals: This presentation is more advanced than the above, and requires an amount of business acumen. It encourages participants to tap into their personal future vision to inform decision making.

  • You Don't Have Time

    Time management for busy business owners.

    Duration: 20-60 minutes

    Audience Size: Small groups up to 20 with interaction / Large groups as a presentation

    Audience Type: Owners or staff of small-medium businesses selling products or service

    Description: We believe that “time is money”, when in fact time is much more important than money. But despite the fact we have this incredible resource at our fingertips, we squander it on less-than-useful activities.

    This talk introduces ways to use our time better, and introduces the concept of “practical time-travel for busy people”… ways to exploit slack time now to make busy periods more productive.

    Goals: Educating business owners about the importance of time, and raising their awareness of what they’re doing with their time. Delegates come away with tools they can use to monitor and improve their time management.

  • Why You're Not Charging Enough, And What To Do About It

    Learn to confidently set prices that serve you and your business.

    Duration: 20-120 minutes

    Audience Size: 10-200 : Small group and pairs participation is encouraged

    Audience Type: Owner/managers of service-industry SMEs, Consultants, Freelancers and Professionals

    Description: Most business owners use the “finger-in-wind” method of pricing their services. Or worse, they look around and undercut the competition. This talk/workshop introduces a new way of pricing… one of abundance and value. Instead of racing to the bottom, we encourage standing out above the competition and delivering the value to justify the charges.

    Goals: Delegates come away with a mindset switch, from competition to value; and they take away low-risk strategies to increase their pricing, and profits, immediately.
