Why Everyone is in sales.

In this keynote you will learn why regardless of who you are and what you do, we all take part in the Art Of Selling. This is an interactive and engaging presentation where Josh uses Magic as the metaphor and illustrates each content piece with a performance. He shares lessons from his own background in sales as he draws a correlation between magic and business. Helping people understand how this concept can translate into an improvement in sales and influence.

Synopsis:

Sales is helping people believe in a solution. Magic is the same. Without the ability to sell others on either your ideas or products there is no business. As a magician without the ability to sell there is no magic….

Josh explains and demonstrates live on stage the principles that allows you to engage your customer and create an atmosphere more conducive for buying.

“Engage me and you can make me convince myself"

Topics Covered:

  • People must buy you first, before they can buy your product.
  • Buying takes place in the silence.

James Castrission

Cas is an Aussie Explorer constantly pushing the boundaries of human endurance.

Most recently, on the 26th January 2012, he made history by completing the longest unsupportedpolar expedition of all time, alongside his best mate, Jonesy. In 100 years of polar exploration no-one had EVER walked from the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole and back without assistance. Many had tried, none had succeeded. After 89 gruelling days they made it back to the coast after having skied 2275km with everything they needed to survive in the harshest environment on Earth.

Justin Jones

Justin Jones (or other wise affectionately known as Jonesy) is one of Australia’s premier motivational speakers and extreme adventurers. Constantly pushing the boundaries of human endurance he has undertaken a number of large scale expeditions over the past 14 years. Two in particular have captured global acclaim and attention, setting 2 Guinness World records.

Ciaran Gribbin

From the war-torn streets of Northern Island to reaching the pinnacle of pop music as the lead singer of INXS, Australian-based Ciaran Gribbin is now finding favour as a keynote conference speaker with an inspirational story to tell. His journey from a young boy growing up in a bitterly divided society in North Ireland, to falling in love with a girl from the wrong side of the conflict, and then following his dream to make it in the cut-throat music world is a captivating story and one that is now capturing the attention of corporate event planners.

Ben Pettingill

Imagine waking up blind. One moment you can see, and in the next moment, your vision is made up only of childhood memories. At the tender age of 16, this became a reality for Ben Pettingill when overnight he lost 98% of his eyesight to a rare genetic syndrome, Lebers Hereditary Optic Neuropathy. While the shock, then grief of losing one's eyesight cannot be discounted, once Ben processed his new reality he realised that he had to make a choice that would define the rest of his life. Ben believed that a blind man could see, and his miracle was the activation of ‘True Vision' and 'Limitless Vision'. Vision enabled through purpose, perception and empowered decision making.

Holly Bryar

Crowned Miss Sydney Australia (2016) at the 6th annual sustainability pageant, Holly was determined from a young age to chase her dreams of working behind and in front of the camera.

After High School, she secured early entry into Charles Sturt University undertaking a double degree in TV Production & Graphic Design. It was during those four years Holly developed her love for creating children’s content within film, television and design.

Upon completing her degree, Holly relocated to Sydney taking time to pursue her passion for acting. She completed various short courses at NIDA under the guidance of Don Christopher, Brendon McDonnell & Serhat Caradee (AFI/AACTA nominee). Soon after she was accepted into NIDA’S part-time course - Advanced Screen Actors Studio with Writer/Directors Elissa Down (Black Balloon) and Craig Boreham (Teenage Kicks).

Holly has worked alongside the talented production teams of much-loved children’s programs Giggle & Hoot and Play School at ABC Kids TV. She currently works freelance and still continues her passion for performing arts.

Jane, I personally want to thank you for all of your support, advice, patience and all round kindness that you have given me over the last 3 or so years.  This event would not have been as successful without the valuable MC’s you have recommended and the support you provided me when it all just seemed too hard
