Phillip Khan-Panni is one of the UK's top Business Communications Consultants, and a proven master of succinct communication, both spoken and written. In addition, he is an expert in clear cross-cultural communication, regularly coaching top business leaders and diplomats. He speaks knowledgeably and interestingly about effective communication, about direct marketing and about customer relationship management (CRM) from a non-technical point of view. In addition, he is in demand as a meetings moderator and master of ceremonies.
He's one of the finest speakers in Britain, and has won more public speaking contests than anyone in Europe, becoming UK Public Speaking Champion seven times, Anglo-Irish champion three times, and World Silver Medallist at San Diego in 1995, a record so far unequalled in Britain.
He is the author of five books (see below). One recent reviewer wrote: "Khan-Panni writes with power and passion about putting power and passion into your public speaking and presentations. The ideas teem, the pace is fast and, above all, the writer has been there, got it wrong, worked out why and moved on."
