What really sets Duncan apart from some of the other best conference speakers and best-selling authors?

Duncan doesn’t just deliver hypotheses, possibilities, hear-say evidence or ideas. Duncan’s keynotes and masterclasses are content-rich and science-backed. This means anything he presents is watertight from the ground up. All of the strategies Duncan shares are underpinned by supporting evidence. Whilst it’s inspiring to hear a story, it’s even more inspiring AND empowering to know that what you have heard is 100% employable and will work.

Duncan’s approach is fresh, unique and cutting edge. He doesn’t use outdated models and ideas. As an example, his Effective Influence Model was developed off the back of years of research into behavioral psychology and the principles of influence and persuasion and is neither long, difficult, or complicated. Instead, it’s easy to apply methodology all underpinned by behavioral science meaning that if applied – the strategies will work.

This easy-to-apply model and exciting, inspiring and entertaining keynote presentation is some of the many reasons why Duncan is hired to speak at organizations globally – to make an immediate impact on both the organization and leadership teams.
