Communications Insight For More Inspiring Leaders A Key Idea For Those First Meetings

A Key Idea For Those First Meetings

 16th Mar 2022
Hugely enjoyable (and intense) day working with a European team of #privateequity investors today.

A key idea for you to consider for those ‘first meetings’ where you may turn up armed with a slide deck.

Make the most of your time connecting with the other party BEFORE you go anywhere near your slides (whether hard copy or digital).

Your connection with your listener can be won or lost before you go past the title slide.

Slides hoover up audience bandwidth.

What if you were to put them to one side completely?!

In the end, it’s about You and Your Client/Prospect/Partner.

You’re in a relationship business.

All else is secondary.

 I was recently promoted into a role where public speaking and inspiring people has become more central to my ability to be effective. I was amazed by how effective just one session was. I heard indirectly that my presentation had been particularly inspirational - one person even contacted the Director of my organisation to say how impressed he had been. Without any exaggeration, I give all this credit to Simon.
