2 Day Sales Workshop Participants' Feedback
"I will never sell the same way to a customer again!"
"The course releases inhibitions, gives a greater understanding of what you do and how to change."
"The exercises bring you out of your comfort zone and make you willing to try new ideas and approaches."
"A brilliant course- very stimulating!"
"I just wanted to thank you for providing such a good training course. It is so good to have a different perspective and an unusual delivery on the training we receive. I took a great deal away from the course and am looking forward to making some personal changes. Thanks again!"
"I have already started to put some of the principles into practice. I have had a few slightly uncomfortable calls where I have broken the old habits but have also made significant progress with some key customers."

Feedback from Morgan Stanley
"Thank you very much for everything on Friday. Your effort throughout the day made it a great experience - both fun and very instructive for all of us. The positive feedback has continued this morning.
Thank you also for the way in which you seemed able to identify the key challenges for us so well. One of the most pleasing things for me was that my colleague, who has to watch 6 or so of these presentations a day, and cops the feedback from the audience, spent so much of the day nodding at what you were saying and doing.
I thought it was pretty much perfect, and that you made us feel welcome, relaxed but challenged.
What you say about presentations is spot on - and there are certainly some more confident individuals around here this morning. Thanks again."
Feedback from Bulldog Broadband
"Having given the very rare presentation in the last eight years, I never really thought about getting up in front of a room of people and trying to hold their attention, whilst actually enjoying the experience. Usually it is something I would like to have over and done with and forgotten as quickly as possible.
Ever since attending Neil's seminar, I've been reciting some of the lessons that I learned: Lessons that would apply in ANY public facing session. It doesn't necessarily need to be a room full of people. Mostly I took away the need to listen and have an open mind. Otherwise one could miss all the inputs that your audience is giving you consciously or unconsciously).
I appreciated the approach that Neil took in conducting exercises utilising games that enable us to see how our own perspective closes our mind to all other possibilities that there may be right in front of us. I think if I could have spent any more time with Neil, I would get that much closer to being able to confidently speak/lead/present almost anywhere, anytime and with potentially any audience.
It was a great experience in learning to shake off habits, pre-conceptions and my own single-mindedness to help enable better participation and interaction with other people. The day we spent was about learning then utilising the tools and exercises we were taught to achieve our goal.
Being shy or self-conscious never came into it. Don't just recite a message, deliver it."
How about something radical at the end of the day?
L Vaughan Spencer Management Guru & Gangsta Motivator Neil's hilarious presentation as his award-winning alter ego: (motto Don't Be Needy, Be Succeedy) can be a great conference closer or after-dinner cabaret.
Whose Firm Is It Anyway?
Neil can create the perfect in-house entertainment for your organisation. Give him five willing volunteers from among your ranks and (at least) an hour to prepare them. That same evening you will see a bespoke improv show created before your very eyes! Neil acts as host and onstage coach. The audience provides the suggestions. Your team of rookies will create an impromptu spectacle to delight and amaze their colleagues.
If you simply want your team to get to know each other better, Improv is the perfect medium.
So many people do not relax with one another. Improv is a great way of everyone sharing laughter together.
And have no fear this is not just for 'extroverts'. The great thing about improv is that quieter team players can excel. So Improv is a great way of creating inclusive humour. Those who are prepared to listen, share control and accept vulnerability, will end up looking strongest.
Or (at the other end of spectrum) do you dread those "motivational" sessions which may have no relevance to your audience?
There is another way: Neil Mullarkey's interactive bespoke keynote presentation. There's plenty of humour along with insight. Every single person in the audience gets involved. On offer are highly practical and relevant tools.
MC and Facilitator
Neil can host your entire conference, facilitating breakout groups, running improv workshops and generally being an
all-round good egg.
