Practical tips on how to deliver a winning presentation

Posted by Delora Chi on Thu, Jun 08, 2017

When have you tried to sell an idea – one that you know everyone should love – but it fell flat following the presentation or pitch?

I was adamant that this year I would pay a visit to the Easter Show. Snapping photos with llamas, devouring various foods on a stick, and visiting the all-important show bag pavilion – is there any better way to spend a day?

How to engage your staff as brand influencers

Posted by Jessica Compton on Sun, Jan 22, 2017

Knowing someone with the inside scoop who can tell you why the company they work for is the bee’s-knees can be an effective influencer. In fact, 49 percent of Twitter users rely on recommendations from influencers versus 56 percent of users relying on recommendations from friends. Most people have at least one social media account with an average of 250 followers. That may not be a large following compared to celebrities, but your staff are closely engaged in their communities and this can provide that added oomph to their story. All employees are effectively brand ambassadors, from the cleaners to the executives. They may not be aware of the influence they wield, but by educating and encouraging your employees you are able to extend the reach of your brand and bring authenticity to your story.

Effectively communicate your firm's story

Posted by Brock Ashton on Tue, Sep 13, 2016

One of the best lessons I’ve learnt in my career to date, is this: facts tell; stories sell.
