This presentation is for any business that wants to improve, increase, and create more momentum in your sales engine. It will be funny, entertaining, engaging and most of all...action orientated.

Get your people in the room to learn;

Sell Me On It

Learn to leverage the dynamic parallels between sales strategies and talent development.

This keynote explores the compelling synergy between the art of selling and the nuanced craft of developing people in the workplace.

We have two sets of customers in the world of business. Our external customers pay for our products and services and our internal customers help develop and sell those products and services.

The great news is that both sets are customers are similarly motivated. The not-so-good news is that many of our engagement initiatives fall short of aligning with these motivations.

The way we help buyers make more empowered buying decisions is very similar to how we help our people remain engaged, fulfilled and empowered with the work they are doing.

Book this keynote if you want to learn;

  • How 25 years of sales experience unlocked the secret to truly engaging your people.
  • Learn that what buyers need from sellers is the same as what employees need from their managers.
  • The one simple secret to unlocking the potential of your people.


Nicholas heard in the corridor that we were going to host an ANZ partner forum in July 2019 and volunteered to MC the event. I was initially very sceptical, however understanding my shortcomings, I immediately reconsidered, which was one of my best-ever decisions. Right from the Introduction, it was obvious that Nicholas was going to transform what was inevitably going to be a rather boring afternoon, into a high-energy event, and he managed to keep the audience participating right through to the end. In fact, most of the 120-plus partners who attended actually congratulated me on having such a highly energetic and entertaining MC who in there their view, was the most exciting part of the forum.
