How do I help my audience?
Initially, I am like a confessor or a psychologist.
I ask a few questions, three in all, and then listen to the confusing responses I hear by way of a reply.
The reason the answers are confusing is that the person I am speaking to is often too close to the project and cannot see the wood for the trees
I am an outsider who can take a bird’s eye view of the business, help you tell a simple, easily understood story, and immediately describe the opportunity and potential solution to your customer’s problems.

Please get in touch if you want to experience the clarity these sessions provide.
P.S. ‘New Light Through Old Windows’ is the title of a great Album by Chris Rea
