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.

Your training massively improved my public speaking ... helped develop my communication skills that go far beyond addressing audiences. Even four years on, it remains the most useful training I have ever had at work - the impact on my career has been huge.
