Reason #1) I never break the golden rule!
I always finish my keynote speech on time and never run over.
Reason #2) You're in the safe hands of a professional speaker.
This is not a hobby or a part-time job for me, this is what I do for a living and I have more than 25 years of professional speaking experience. I'm not a prima donna, I know how to work with Event Planners and I know what is needed to create a real buzz in the atmosphere.
Reason #3) I understand and respect the trust you put in me.
I don't underestimate the huge leap of faith you take when booking a speaker and I always go the extra mile to ensure you know you're dealing with a true professional by giving you everything you need, when you need it and every time you need it. Nothing is left to chance.
Reason #4) I'm very easy to work with.
I understand exactly what it takes to put on a conference, it's a huge undertaking with logistics, organisation and many people are involved. I become part of your team and I make things as easy as possible by communicating with you every step of the way to ensure you have 100% confidence in me, what I'm doing, and when I'm doing it.
I speak with you before your event to ensure I have a crystal clear vision of what you want to achieve and I explain how I'm going to achieve it. If required, I share information on my Social Media to promote your event.
I work with you during your event with rehearsals, AV set up and timing with moderators and other speakers to ensure everything runs in the best way possible.
I work with you after your event. If required, I write articles for you. I share images on my social media to promote your event. I conduct podcasts and video interviews with key personnel and audience members to highlight the main focus areas. In short, I'm here to support you, I'm here to support your people and I'm here to support your organisation to the very best of my ability.
Reason #5) My keynote speeches are packed with persuasive, killer content.
Every speech I give is totally unique, genuine and authentic. I engage your audience with gripping content which is always on point, relevant and I'm underpinned with the credibility of being on record as the most successful author of all time on KPI and business strategy. In other words, my credibility makes me believable, and that's critical with an important message.
Reason #6) I'm very easy to understand.
I speak English in a neutral accent and I pride myself that anyone whose second language is English can still understand me with ease. I don't use local slang, I don't use sexual innuendo and I don't use foul language, I'm the consummate professional with incredible information that creates a buzz of excitement and a real WOW.
Reason #7) I work well with simultaneous translation.
My only presentation language is English, but I work extremely well with interpreters. I spend time with the translators prior to the event to make sure they know my subject matter to ensure that nothing gets lost in translation. I take care with my speech speed and add tactical pauses to ensure the entire audience is in the same place at the same time.
Reason #8) I love interacting with the audience.
Audience engagement is where I score highly. Having fun with a serious intent really aids the learning process and audience involvement significantly increases the enjoyment of the event. I'm very happy taking questions live on stage, whether that's using the latest technology via an App for the event, or the good old fashioned way of asking for a raised hand to ask a question, or even getting off stage and mingling with the audience.
Reason #9) I always make time to speak with delegates after I leave the stage
This is important because there's always someone who wants to talk, they may have been too shy to ask a question on a open microphone. I do everything I can to make myself accessible for everyone so I can extend the message of the event.
Reason #10) My client list is vast, my international network is far reaching and my research is meticulous.
All of these things mean you can rest assured that everything I share with you and your audience has been tried, thoroughly tested and proven in the real world, there are no wishy-washy fairytale ideas based on theory alone. The information you receive from me is unique, ground-breaking and you won't hear it from anyone else.
I know it's not just the audience who have to be wowed...
a great speaker must also work as part of the team with the Event Manager to ensure success

says about me after working together on multiple events

"Having seen Jeff speak on many occasions, I personally rate him amongst the top 10 speakers in the world - I put him right up there with Jack Canfield and speakers of that stature. He's also one of the few speakers that really knows how to work with Event Planners, he makes my life easy and he knows what it takes to be part of the team at an event. For me, he's a safe pair of hands for my clients because he always delivers"
