Do you speak in front of others as part of your job?

The answer is almost certainly yes - whether you’re on a conference platform, pitching to stakeholders or reporting the quarterly figures.

The story/change keynote

Stories are the software our brains run on. Whatever we do in business or personal life, our influence depends on the stories we tell ourselves - and allow others to tell about us.

Ian's own story is an inspiring tale of turning adversity into success. In keynote, workshop, online or after dinner speeches, he layers his story with examples from business and movie scenes suggested by the audience to demonstrate how stories work, why we tell them and how it's possible to transform our world by taking ownership of the narrative.

If your industry is going through change-or-die transformation...

If you need to engage colleagues and customers in your mission...

If you’re feeling stuck in a rut...

...this is your turning point.
