can always measure a good conference by how much it's
talked about after the event, but rather than going solely
for the popularity vote, Jeff's aim is to give great ideas
to improve business performance- and that's what gets
talked about long after the event has ended - However,
although it's not his aim, he's often cited by the audience
as the best speaker of the day.
one of the reasons for his popularity is because he's
brilliant at getting the audience involved in the whole
experience; he works on this premise:

Involve me and I will understand

require an Autocue nor does he rely upon scripts... instead
he walks the stage fully engaging the audience speaking
from heart with real passion. Few people have the depth
of knowledge to do this and at the same time have the
ability to deliver a message to the audience with the
effect of an atomic bomb.
Smith, Motivational Speaker and Facilitator for "The
Journey Ahead Master Class" in Ireland
our lifetime we have the chance to meet a lot of people,
some of them are very well educated, some of them have
a lot of knowledge, a few of them are brilliant, but if
we are really lucky, sometimes we get to meet a "
Genius". But what makes someone a genius?
Probably there are many answers to this question, but
from my perspective I think a genius is someone who brings
"Clarity" and who has the capacity to put together
a lot of information and come out with a simple clear
understanding of it. But further more, a genius is capable
of sharing their knowledge in simple plain English, so
that is understandable to everybody at every level, even
to people like me where English is not my first language.
One day in my life I met a person who fulfilled my requisites
to call him a genius, that was the day I met Jeff Smith.
He has contributed
so much to make the automotive industry understandable,
it's an industry so difficult to manage, but he gives
clear and very effective ways to measure performance in
all aspects of the business.
very much for all the knowledge you have given me, but
more importantly thank you so much for giving me "Clarity".

recently fortunate enough to film an event at which Jeff
Smith was a keynote speaker, delivering an excellent presentation
outlining a number of useful strategies to help track
KPI and boost sales performance.
As a commercial
film maker, I see many professional speakers performing
on stage every year and once in a while, on that rare
occasion, I get to see someone who stands out above the
crowd and really connects with their audience. Jeff Smith
is one such speaker and this was confirmed through the
feedback we had during filming interviews with delegates
throughout the event.
Jeff did an amazing job of bringing to life a subject
that can often be very dry, using real-world examples
to keep the audience engaged and inspired. Even the film
crew were totally enthralled by him and what he had to
say and we knew nothing about the subject. I don' think
it's possible to have a higher recommendation than that."

our initial interview with Jeff and after contacting several
companies he had worked with in the past, we decided to
hire Jeff as a speaker for our organization to focus on
the KPI known as Absorption.
Jeff to present at conferences in 16 different countries
over a period of just over a month. The quality of Jeff's
presentations was absolutely top-notch and he easily handled
the occasional "naysayer" or "challenger"
in the audience through a combination of his experience
and his knowledge on the topic.
left each meeting with not only a better understanding,
but also a much better appreciation of the topic and its
value to their business. Jeff Smith single handedly drove
this highly desirable end-result for our organization.
Beyond this very positive end-result however, there is
more... Jeff was easy to work with and extremely understanding
of our needs and the outcome we desired.
In my book,
it simply doesn't get any better. Would we hire Jeff again?

goes the extra mile. I can honestly say he's a person

in and help people who are in trouble, whereas other people

exception, they've all been totally transformed, inspired
and always want more. I wouldn't consider hiring anyone

at our recent Inchcape Retail Group Aftersales Managers

It was wonderfully simple to understand, yet very powerful
in its approach in teaching us all how to further improve

He also managed to crisply communicate the message in
a relaxed way and best of all we had some genuine fun
when completing the KPI Quiz that he asked us to do.
There were some hard hitting messages in the presentation
and we all concluded that he prepared a presentation that
seriously differentiates him from the crowd and will most
definitely help us to improve our performance.

Here's Another Big Difference
Setting Jeff Smith Apart From The Crowd...
After your conference
has ended, your audience will have access to personalised
online learning to re-enforce the ideas and initiatives
of your conference. Take a look at a simple example here:

after your conference
Compelling Reasons Why You Should
Choose Jeff Smith For Your Conference
Reason # 1: Credibility is a MUST. Although
he's achieved massive success in the Automotive Industry,
his conference speeches are tailored for all business
sectors. He speaks in depth about KPI for Sales organisations,
Service organisations, manufacturing, right through to
balance sheet and cohesive business strategy.
book sales exceeding $3,000,000, there are very few people
in the Automotive Industry who do not own a copy of The
KPI Book; it's regarded as "the industry Bible".
well known, he's well respected, he's always accessible
to people and he stays at the conference to speak with
the delegates after the event. Who is better than the
guy who wrote the book to speak about KPI?
Reason # 2: Real World Ideas not glib theory!
Jeff has more than 30 years of experience of running businesses
and he's worked with some of the very best people in the
world - he knows what works and he knows how to explain
it really well.
Compelling Reason # 3: Definitely Not The Same
Old Stuff - Some conference speakers have a "standard"
speech and say the same thing at every conference they
attend. If the audience has seen them before, they say
"Here we go again, same old stuff as last time."
You'll never get this with Jeff because he'll spend a
lot of time with you before the conference so that everything
is tailor-made for your event. You get your message delivered
in a way that's fresh, right for the current climate and
delivered with massive impact.
Compelling Reason # 4: Walking the talk - Some speakers
are mere entertainers, they put on a great show but they
lack any in-depth knowledge. How many speakers do you
know that will make a presentation and then stay on stage
and ask for questions? Not many! Jeff believes this makes
a real difference to delivering change in the workplace
- the more questions he gets, the better; it makes the
whole event more relevant for everyone.
Compelling Reason # 5: Great content but what about
the delivery style? Well, this is a personal thing,
we all like different things, but what we can say is that
Jeff is usually fully booked for at least 12 months in
advance and that's the real acid test.
Reason # 6: Is it possible to influence people
in 1 hour? Most conference speakers will say "Yes,
of course, I use a special technique". The truth
is the level of influence that can be achieved at a conference
is directly proportional to the subject matter. Some topics
carry instantaneous influence, whilst other subjects requires
support from the top at a later stage.
us your brief and your expectations for the event and
then Jeff will have a talk with you and tell you "honestly"
what he thinks he can achieve.
something quite rare...If he does not think that he can
deliver what you are asking for, he will not accept your
invitation to speak and that's why his success rate is
100%. Honesty and integrity are right at the top of his
Reason # 7: Action is the Key- There are many
speakers who can get up on stage and talk for an hour
or two and take your money, but the question is, do they
give a call to action? Do they inspire people to want
to make change happen? In other words, do they have the
ability to deliver commercial gain in the workplace for
you? The answer for Jeff Smith is most definitely YES!
you have the budget for such an acclaimed speaker and
you want to know more about how to get the best results
out of your conference, why don't you pick up the phone,
call the office and speak with Jeff Smith directly, here's
0044 1384 371432
worry, if he's not in the office (and he probably won't
be) you can speak with Sharon, his PA who will let you
know about his availability and then she'll take your
details and arrange for Jeff to call you personally at
a convenient time to suit you.
you want the very best results...
