“Highly acclaimed Business Psychologist & former top International Magician” Lawrence Leyton is a unique business motivator because he is able to utilise his skills as a magician and his knowledge as a psychologist and combine them to illustrate specific key messages in a powerful way that holds the audience’s attention and keeps them alert and engaged.
He knows how to bring the conference alive!
As an award winning magician he achieved international acclaim when he was invited to appear at The Magic Castle in Hollywood, then at the London Palladium, followed by a Royal command performance on board the QE2. He was one of an elite group of people that were invited into the Inner Magic Circle.
When he was at the top of his game, he decided that his journey was just beginning. He was passionate about psychology and human behaviour and spent the next 15 years studying all forms of psychology.
He now works closely with organisations such as the Institute of Directors, The Chartered Institute of Personal development and The Institute of Sales and Marketing Management and provides personal development programmes for all levels of management to a very impressive list of clients that include Microsoft, Lucent, GlaxoSmithKlein, JPMorgan, AstraZeneca, The Prudential and AMP, to name but a few! His advice is also sought by world-class athletes in their preparation for the Olympic Games.
Areas of Expertise
His keynote has been designed to accelerate the growth of your organisation by concentrating on the individuals, teaching them how to lead themselves, resulting in
increased productivity and profit. It’s not just theory; the keynote is based on years in the trenches and aims to answer two simple questions, “Does this stuff work?”
and “Does it get results now?” On this basis, audience members will never leave the keynote wondering what to do next. Rather, they will walk away with a set of tools
that they can apply now! Instant conversion!
He is often asked, “If you were to take everything you’ve learned from high achievers that you worked with over the last 15 years and boil it down to a shortlist, what
would it be?” This keynote is the answer.
Lawrence has worked as a keynote speaker in just about every country of the world and as a corporate consultant for some of the world's top companies.
Lawrence's success is his ability to model the strategies of some of the most successful individuals in the world and to communicate these skills powerfully to others. He is an expert in the psychology of peak performance, sales, innovation and communication, but his greatest competitive advantage however, is his ability to entertain. His unconventional approach leaves audiences thrilled and provoked.
Lawrence's research has been featured on television, both in the UK and abroad. He has had his own television special on the ITV network at peak time, gaining an audience of 8.6 million. He has just completed his latest book, The Six Most Powerful Sales Questions, to be published in September.
In addition to being a skilled neuro-linguistic practitioner (the study of how human experience creates our behaviour) and one of the British pioneers of Thought Field Therapy, Lawrence is a notable clinical hypnotherapist, specialising in helping people overcome phobias and addictions. He has also coached world-class athletes in their preparations for the Olympic Games in order to achieve peak mental performance.
TOPICS OF KEYNOTES:
Personal breakthrough leadership!
How to achieve consistent results every single day?
What to do when you don’t feel like doing anything!
How do you gain rapport in the shortest amount of time with just about anybody
on the planet?
HIGH IMPACT COMMUNICATION
Today more and more organisations view soft skills as essential 'weapons' to gain real competitive advantage. High Impact Communication covers advanced communication techniques that you will be able to immediately implement.
In the workplace, communication is a constant process. When we speak, 55% of our message is being conveyed via our physiology or body language. When we are not speaking, 100% of our message about what we are thinking and feeling is being transmitted by our body language. Sensory acuity is the observation and interpretation of body language in order to gain a better understanding and insight into the thoughts, feelings and behaviour of others.
Did you know that most business decisions are made on the basis of rapport rather than technical merit? Effective communication hinges on the amount of rapport you have with the other person. Whether you are communicating changes with your staff or simply making your clients feel more comfortable or dealing with that difficult client. In fact there is no such thing as a difficult client, you are simply out of rapport with them.
But, can you learn a technique to gain rapport when it is not naturally occurring? The answer is YES.
Key learning points:
. How to use unconscious techniques at a conscious level
. How to gain rapport when it is not naturally occurring?
. Sensory acuity - which is the observation and interpretation of body language in order to gain a better understanding and insight into the thoughts, feelings and behaviour of others.
. Key listening skills to find out exactly what your clients need.
INNOVATION IN BUSINESS
Today more and more organisations view creativity and innovation as the backbone to business growth and productivity. This presentation is fun and interactive, and (uniquely) harnesses 'magic' as the vehicle to dramatically illustrate that by challenging conventional wisdom and established thought- processes, individuals and teams will discover new and innovative solutions.
Most companies even when they innovate tend to do it only once and rely on that something for the rest of the year or years! The key is to keep on innovating.
When we are problem solving, it all depends on the way we set our minds rather than how good our minds are the first place!
If you are going to talk on a subject like innovation then you have to be innovative . The presentation will amaze you and make you think differently.
Key learning points:
. The need to use both (Right Brain) Creative and (Left Brain) Analytical skills in solving a problem
. Recognising the barriers to innovation
. The way we set our minds
. Not challenging the obvious
. Evaluating too quickly
. Unleashing Creativity!
HIGH IMPACT SALES TECHNIQUES
Sleight of Mouth!
90% of all human behaviour is unconscious, and that includes buying. Based on programmed mental responses, they unconsciously decide long before they know it, conscious deliberating ratifies the unconscious decision. You can learn how to recognise the unconscious patterns each client uses to buy, so that you can easily present your product in the most effective way that stacks the odds in your favour.
The client will buy when sold to in a way that matches the way he/she thinks. When you understand human mental processes and what makes certain buyers so different from others, you can then tailor your sales pitch to fit like a glove.
You can apply simple, yet remarkably effective, sales techniques based on subliminal language patterns of speech that all 'born' salespeople habitually use. They are used to by-pass conscious critical resistance and therefore go directly to the unconscious part of the brain.
The techniques are so subtle, so natural and so convincing that few people are even aware of them or recognise their power.
Key learning points:
. Hypnotic language patterns
. How to melt away resistance
. Methods to counter any objections
. Put your prospects in a buying mood.
. How to quickly close sales
