Presentation Topics

  • Matching Skills
    An engaging look at the power of matching body language to gain rapport with our clients (both externally and internally).

  • The 1%ers (Posture, Eye Contact, Smile, Gratitude, Energy)
    ◦These are the key physical and mental adjustments that separate how “attracted” people are to doing business with you.
    These are the tools of engagement that separate the top people from everyone else.

  • FORD
    This is the “ultimate tool of communication” and is used in building relationships in the areas of sales, leadership, customer database, parenting and, of course…the art of small talk and cocktail party excellence.

  • Sunset
    This is a modern look at goal setting and KPI’s without getting bogged down in the corporate speak. This tool is about creating clarity by using NLP techniques which create a compelling future which delivers the “why” and the activities and behaviours of success.

  • The Personality Colours
    This is one of Chris' most popular tools as participants go on a unique ride of understanding different types of people and personality types. This high energy and hilarious look at people helps everyone from managers, leaders, sales people…anyone who has to deal with human beings as part of their job description!

  • Generational Leadership/Generational Selling
    This is Chris' latest tool which demonstrates how to influence each of the generations in the modern workplace – Generation Y, Generation X and the Baby Boomers. Generation Y now makes up between 30-50% of the work force in most organisations and no one has ever showed them how to truly influence older people and get their way. Companies have been so worried about what they want, no one has shown them how to truly influence the older generations.

  • Breaking Down the E-Wall
    In this world of e-mail, it is taking longer than ever to get ideas and sales over the line. This tool is about the five keys of breaking down the electronic wall that clients hide behind to not make decisions. This is about avoiding the game of E-Pong and how to move our customers and clients to taking action.

  • Equalise then Separate
    This is the “ultimate tool of listing” and the better salesperson you are, the more you will appreciate this concept. While most people try to sell “everything”, this tool teaches the participants to equalise up with everything that is the “same” between you and your competitor and decide what is the ONE thing which separates you out.

  • The Butterfly
    The number one thing that holds people back is FEAR. This tool is about re-framing anxiety and the process that leads to procrastination and failure. Using NLP techniques, these feelings are re-frames to become “action signals” to take action towards achieving the outcome.

  • Positive, Positive, Positive Negative
    ◦This is the “ultimate tool of persuasion” because this is the tool that gets clients and customers (both internally and externally) to take action with what you want them to do.

  • Reading Body Language
    This is a complete look at how to know what is REALLY being said. While 55% of our communication is body language, most people have no idea what is really being communicated. While the customer seems to be listening, with this information you will know what they really think of your presentation and will give you the clues and cues to what should be your next move.

Helping others achieve their own greatness is what gives me the get up and go these days."

He related very well to our staff and mixed a great deal of humour into the message. I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris for other engagements in the future."

"I wanted to let you know that Chris Helder was simply outstanding. Surprisingly in 15 years of MC'ing conferences, our paths have never crossed, despite seeing pretty much everyone else on the circuit many times. I was so impressed by his session - and I am quite a cynical observer. The audience loved him, he had them captivated for four hours!”
