Labeled the "turn-around champ" by Fortune magazine, Barry Gibbons carried a failing Burger King Corporation from threatened obscurity to triumphant global prominence. Tell It Like It Is: With scalpel-sharp wit, Barry Gibbons cuts to the bottom-line difference between "acceptable" and "exceptional" creating a blueprint for fresh-start success. He conveys to audiences what makes the difference between organizations who succeed versus those muddling in mediocrity.

Take A Chance: Combining practical experience with maverick business sense, Gibbons challenges the status quo, breaks the rules and makes the daunting complexities of business easy to understand. He also exposes the comic absurdities of modern business while emphasizing the glorious opportunities that reward courageous decisions.

Author and Business Humorist: Gibbons is the author of several books, including Dream Merchants and HowBoys; This Indecision is Final; If You Want to Make God Really Laugh, Show Him Your Business Plan; and his latest, Warning! May Contain Nuts! And in 2005 Gibbons will publish a book about public speaking titled, As God Once Said (and I Think, Quite Rightly...). He has written five international business books, published in several languages.

The Results: With humor and intelligence, Gibbons' wisdom provides a practical road map for successful organizations and individuals willing to commit to the journey.

Leadership - A Place Beyond Management
In big or small companies, business units or teams, the advent of flatter structures, empowerment, outsourcing, tele-commuting and distributing (computer) systems mean that EVERYBODY in business faces the challenge of leading and not just managing.

New Branding
Branding is still about market distinction, but has changed irrevocably in the 90s. Less focus on product specifications and price, more on securing a sustainable RELATIONSHIP with the customer, thinking "small", and energizing EVERYBODY in the organization in pursuit of the goal are all key.

Mark Carter

With over two decades as a learning and development professional, building frameworks for blue chip billion-dollar companies and SME's, Mark Carter knows a thing or two about human behaviour. 

He can present on adaptability, productivity, peak performance, culture, talent and sales … anything and everything to do with people. That’s because Mark Carter has dedicated his life to helping people adapt their perspective, make choices and take actions that deliver better results in their lives. 

Author of Add Value, published globally by Wiley in 2020, Mark shares why truly knowing what we value, and why, is the real basis of success.

From a leader and training Manager for Contiki Holidays to working across more than 40 countries, Mark knows how to connect and get the best out of people. He understands that the secret to wealth for every business sits with its key assets, its people. And when he presents, his keynotes do more than engage and entertain, they inspire people to look to the future, to evolve their skills and embrace change. 

Mark’s enthusiasm is infectious. He connects with his audience because he cares about his audience. And he truly wants them to know what he knows, so they can leverage their strengths, manage their weaknesses and be the best person they can be. 
He should be bottled up and drunk daily. You’ll have to settle for a presentation, that is if you’re lucky enough to book him. Because people love him.
