SALES AND PERSUASION
(STRATEGIC STORYTELLING FOR BUSINESS)
Influence and persuade authentically and effectively every single time.

ARE YOU WANTING TO HIRE A SALES SPEAKER FOR YOUR NEXT EVENT?

Sales speaker, Duncan Stevens helps sales professionals influence and persuade more effectively every single time. As people turn to new and innovative ways to reach their current or prospective clients they end up becoming extra noise in an already saturated marketplace. It is becoming increasingly difficult to stand out and attract attention.

In today’s forever changing economic climate, it’s no longer about being a great salesman or woman. In fact, it should never have been about that. If you’re known as a great sales person it simply means you’ve been caught.

The result we should all be striving for is ‘thank you’.

A ‘thank you’ shows that we cared. A ‘thank you’ shows we have helped find a solution to our customer’s problems.
If we care, people want to do business with us. If people want to do business with us, they become more open to our influence. If they are open to our influence, we sell more. In fact, caring for others and perusing our business or personal goals is a cause and effect relationship. Our relationships will with our clients will grow stronger and outlast our competitors.

In his Effective Influence Model, professional sales speaker, Duncan Stevens demystifies and decodes the techniques that are used by the world’s leading sales people to accelerate their influence abilities and build relationships.

Duncan shares with you small practical, costless principles that will allow you to lead, sell, market and create long-term client relationships much more effectively where the client will feel that they are respected and are cared for.

Behind every product is a story.

When you deliver a story with the correct influence triggers, it will result in the other person having the appropriate thoughts and emotional engagement that compels them to follow your lead and ideas. In turn, this will build loyalty and lead to significantly more effective results.

Duncan’s Effective Influence Model will give you the tools and techniques to take your influencing skills to the next level, and ensure each negotiation is significantly more effective, every single time.

HOW CAN DUNCAN HELP YOU IN 2020 / 2021 UNDER THE HOLD OF COVID-19?

Whilst there is a a lot of reporting from the media which focusses on unemployment, companies going into administration, bankruptcy and other havoc the pandemic has wrought on business, there are still companies who have seen substantial growth. Equally so, there are those companies who have not been affected by the pandemic. Others are struggling to survive.

As a result of these troubles, concerns, worries and difficulties for some and exciting expansion plans for others, Duncan has re-written his presentation script for the current era under the grip of the pandemic. He has distilled down the situations that most clients, businesses and companies find themselves in and segmenting them into the following categories:

There are those who are looking to take advantage of the situation.

There are those who are looking to take it as it comes.

Finally there are those businesses, companies and individuals who are taking no action

There are of course another group of salespeople or businesses in the sales industry who are taking it easy, taking the pain, taking a pay cut and taking the back seat whilst others steer the metaphorical ship into unchartered waters.

In Duncan’s brand new, fully revised and relevant keynote speech he looks at all categories that sales teams have chosen to box themselves into and shows them the way forward. No is not the time to following someone up who is struggling with a pitch or hard sell.  

If you are hungry, thirsty, battered and bruised you wouldn’t try and sell them cookery classes or a martial arts programme. You would put your arm around them, and put food on the table and give them the love and support that they need. This is the same mentality we should all be taking in this time of crisis for so many of us. 

Whilst we may not be closing sales or increasing our profits, now is the time to be empathetic and caring. In fact empathy is caring about what the people care about, care about

You can read some of the reviews from people, clients and businesses that Duncan has helped by caring as much about their success, results and goals as his own by navigating to the feedback tab at the top of the page.

DUNCAN'S COVID-19 KEYNOTE PRESENTATION 2020 / 21 REVISED AND UPDATED:

In Duncan’s brand new, fully revised and relevant keynote speech he looks at all categories that sales teams have chosen to box themselves into and shows them the way forward. No is not the time to following someone up who is struggling with a pitch or hard sell.

If you are hungry, thirsty, battered and bruised you wouldn’t try and sell them cookery classes or a martial arts programme. You would put your arm around them, and put food on the table and give them the love and support that they need. This is the same mentality we should all be taking in this time of crisis for so many of us.

Whilst we may not be closing sales or increasing our profits, now is the time to be empathetic and caring. In fact empathy is caring about what the people care about, care about.

In this brand new, interactive, insightful and highly engaging keynote sales speech packed with great content Duncan explores some of the techniques that companies have used in previous recessions and times of crisis.

Whether you hire Duncan or not, perhaps one of the biggest takeaways, is a mind-set shift. If we were all to switch from our default position of taking advantage, taking it as it comes or taking no action and take one word and take an opposite approach, we are left with a much more binary choice – GIVE UP or GIVE BACK.

  • Give creditors more time to pay back, or increase their payment terms.
  • Simply ask how others are doing in this time of crisis and see how you or your company can help.
  • Place yourself in a position of assistance.

As a keynote presenter, Duncan shares rich examples, influence experiments, case studies and offers simple applications, techniques and ideas you can implement right now. If you are going to give back, give back what they need and not what they might want. In the same ilk that Duncan has redesigned, redevised his keynote speech – not to give clients a keynote speech which outlines sales and influence techniques in a stable time, but one which is tailored to add value to each and every organization, business or client that use his services as a sales speaker.

To accommodate clients even further, Duncan has also pivoted his business online and is now offering Virtual Keynote Presentations. These have extremely high production values and are packed with the same quality content Duncan has become synonymous with. You can have as many clients or delegates as you want and you can still experience the same level of interaction whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines.

You can even experience Duncan’s Influence Experience  show online too now. This too has taken over 3 months in development and is now ready for all of your delegates to enjoy too. You can find out more by navigating to the Influence Experience tab too. This is highly interactive where your team, delegates will experience influence in the form of entertainment. 

Similarly, Duncan is now also offering his masterclasses online too. These have also been adapted to provide content specific to the current turmoil the world and sales industry is experiencing, but these masterclasses offer the same high quality content and interaction that you would experience in a live event with Duncan.
