OWN YOUR INDUSTRY

How to Position Yourself as an Expert

When you are the Branson of business, the Clarkson of cars, the Nigella of food, the business comes to you. Are you a ‘category of 1’? When clients spend into your industry, are you the only logical choice?

For over a decade, business author and professional speaker Douglas Kruger has been studying the phenomenon of experts. What differentiates them? What do they do that amateurs don't? What can we learn by emulating the behaviours of top performers across a range of industries?

Based on two of Douglas's bestselling book with Penguin, ‘Own Your Industry’, and ‘What Makes Them Great?’, this presentation shows how you, your business, and your brand can position yourself as the icon, the expert, the thought-leader in your industry. When you do, the business comes to you.

Own a cause and you will create tribes of believing followers. Become the only logical choice and you will be consistently recommended. Position yourself as an expert, and the entire business landscape changes in some interesting ways.

HIGH-IQ LEADERSHIP

The latest ‘smartcuts' from Behavioural Economics and Lateral-Thinking

Behavioural Economics has some astonishing insights for us. Imagine if you could take all the best, and all the most effective ‘smart-cuts’, and share them with your leaders in one go.

The concepts are simple. But their effects are phenomenal.

For instance, did you know that you shouldn’t perform ‘deep archaeology’ in order to change the culture in your organisation? Instead, you should supply your people with concrete prompts: ‘When this happens, I want you to do that instead.’ This idea is exponentially more effective than attempts at radical overhaul.

So is ‘speaking in photographs from the future.’ It helps our teams to ‘see what we mean,’ to a much greater extent than the kind of abstract language that managers typically use.

These are the sort of insider secrets we will cover. Douglas will show your leaders how to ‘see’ more, and how to get results at a larger scale. The ideas are designed to carve years off your leadership teams’ learning curve, and they are delivered with humour and panache by a bestselling author and inductee into the ‘Speakers’ Hall of Fame.’

LEAD FROM THE FRONT

How to engage and persuade every time you present

Too few leaders realise it, but presentation skills can be their single strongest argument for career advancement. When you are seen leading from the front of the room, you draw positive attention to your personal brand, you position yourself as a natural leader, and you become an asset to your organisation.

Poor speaking skills can stop your progress dead in its tracks. With so much at stake, why not invest in taking yours to the next level?

This course goes beyond the mere mechanics of public speaking and presenting, and shows your sales and leadership teams how to truly engage and persuade. Are your messages 'un-ignorable'? Does the point get through? Are you so compelling that audiences leave your presentations excited about the way forward? At the very least, do you know which mistakes to cull, to avoid disqualifying yourself as an amateur?

Few people in the nation are as qualified to train this skill. In recognition of excellence in his craft, global Professional Speaker Douglas Kruger has been inducted into the Speakers Hall of Fame by the Professional Speakers Association of Southern Africa. He is a 5x winner of the Southern African Championships for Public Speaking and the author of '50 Ways to Become a Better Speaker,' and 'How to Make your Point Without PowerPoint.'

Douglas has been presenting on the business circuit for some fifteen years. He has personally coached the CEO of FNB South Africa, the senior leadership of BMW SA, the MD of Clarins and many more.

This course is available as a morning seminar. Pricing is based on delegate numbers.
