Steve Catchick
The Secret Salesforce

How do you differentiate yourself or your organization from the crowd. We may have our own version on something but there is very little that is totally original, or new, today, that stands out. Even new technology is soon caught up by competitors.

The one distinction is the customer experience, which is today’s competitive battlefield. Every inter-action is a moment of truth, and the experience can make or break a relationship and either lose or retain a customer.

Your key learning points will be:
· Understand how you can encourage and boost sales, without selling, by creating magic moments of truth

· Learn how to reduce the churn rate of your customers, retaining them, and your team, for longer

· Appreciate 3 principles that you can use to boost relationships, win advocates and win sales through service

· Know the 3 types of character common in most organisations and how to develop them into a secret salesforce

Steve spent 25 years in various customer support, account management and training roles before running a franchise delivering business and personal development to SME’s.

Steve is heavily involved and committed in PSA, Toastmasters, NLP training and clinical Hypnotherapy. He coaches and runs master-classes to business leaders, SME’s and organisations.




Simon Day
Your Toughest Audience is Yourself

In studying the art of communicating with others, Simon has learned something unexpected, yet critical: how we communicate with ourselves completely alters the way our messages are delivered to - and received by - other people. Gaining control of our internal dialogue means we can have more meaningful dialogues with others.

You’ll learn:
· how to gain better control of your internal dialogue.

· how to communicate with greater empathy and sensitivity.

· how to deliver feedback in a way that empowers and increases engagement and productivity.

Simon is a marketing executive turned English teacher embarking on a speaking career. He has a degree in English, a postgraduate certificate in Education and is completing an MA in Creative Writing. He also holds Grade 6 Piano and Grade 8 Speaking in Public.

So you know…

Showcasing is a very important and fruitful part of the meeting as it gives great opportunities to the person doing the showcase and the people watching. The person delivering the showcase will receive invaluable feedback on how they can improve their offering. You in the audience will also have an opportunity to learn from the feedback you hear.


So what’s stopping you? Are you still here? We look forward to welcoming you… book now.
