Why choose Duncan as your conference speaker?

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

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 as all of his principles, applications, tools and techniques 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 He doesn’t use outdated models and ideas.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 behavioural psychology and the principles of influence and persuasion. This model ensures that you can increase the impact and success rate of your influencing and persuasion skills significantly. This results in greater effectiveness in both business and personal lives.

Not only that, but this is not a long, complicated and difficult to apply methodology which can be so often the case. This is an easy to apply model and is one of the many reasons why Duncan is hired globally – to make an immediate impact to sales, marketing and leadership. His Effective Influence Model has never been featured in print and to ensure that those clients who hire get his latest innovative, cutting edge content.

Whereas a consultancy firm may look at your business, and apply a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to consultancy – Duncan is different. His approach is unique and contextualised for your business meaning you will see a greater and quicker impact.
