Client Focused – Solution Driven – Relationship Sensitive
- Client Focused, Solution Driven and Relationship Sensitive is Bill Gibson’s Motto. In advance, Bill gathers relevant information from you and adjusts and customises his speech or seminar to address timely issues and topics that are current in your participants’ business lives and personal lives.
- Bill also asks you “What is it that I will have done for you in my speech or seminar that will prompt you to say whole heartedly at the end of the speech…Bill, you were “Spot On”, you delivered exactly what my group and I needed?” Bill then delivers with your expectations as the goal.
- Bill has a background as a Certified Instructor of Dr Thomas Gordon’s “Leader Effectiveness Training” and “Parent Effectiveness Training” Programs and is an absolute master of non-verbal and verbal communications. Combining these with his unsurpassed creative talent, Bill can adapt and effectively deliver the material in most of the topics above even to participants and audiences that are non-sales, non-marketing and non-entrepreneurial type people. (Support staff, administrators, educators, students, non-profit groups, family members, etc.) He believes “If you are alive you are in the business of influencing and persuading others and you are operating your own personal business called LIFE”.
- Bill is flexible and spontaneous and has the uncanny ability to combine many of the topics above in one session to give your people or guests exactly what they need and want. The breadth and depth of content on the topics of Sales, Marketing, Customer Care, Business Management, Leadership, Entrepreneurism, Personal Development and Motivation found in Bill’s system and programs total over 50 days of classroom training. (The Professional Sales Representative Career Programme totals 333 hours of classroom training). That is why he can offer such a variety of topics for you to choose from or combine for your session.
- He utilises appropriate humour, related antidotes, the power of real life story telling, practical “how to’s” and a continual “cup emptying” approach to connect with and hold your group for the entire speech or seminar.
- All of Bill’s speeches and seminars are practical, down to earth and filled with usable content, but yet inspiring and entertaining. He is often referred to as an EDUTAINER. When you attend one of Bill’s sessions you will hear real life proven ideas and actions that work. There is very little theory that is not backed up with business and personal examples that transfer to action in the work place and in our personal lives.
