If you want to increase productivity, diversity and results in your firm, I can help you.

Research (survey of over 400 business people) shows that in many firms a third of staff are not fully productive. Introversion, communication and culture creating a large part of the issue.

Meetings are focal point of communication in many firms. my book “Running Meetings that make things happen” was cited in the Economist.

This introvert productivity gap is caused mainly through ignorance of introversion. A keynote presentation or workshops will help your audience take action to improve productivity for all staff. Workshops or presentations can be remote or face to face. Watch the videos above for live footage from different presentations.

If you’re in any business where your team, or your client base, are introverts, you need to get him in so that you can get rapport with the introverts. It’s between 30% and 50%  of your client base, isn’t it best that you serve them?”

Remote speaking versus face to face

I am equally happy to present online using your favourite system (or mine) from my studio or to attend your venue. Each delivery method has benefits.

Whether you want the live experience, or the flexibility of delegates connecting without travelling, two important questions remain:

  1. What value will your you and your delegates get?
  2. Will they engage and take action as a result?

Remote presentations need to be more interactive that face to face. For some years I’ve been delivering interactive, remote presentations and am very comfortable using the technology available to the fullest ability of your audience.

“I often struggle to focus in online presentations, but your use of polls, chat box and talking, kept me fully engaged”

“Your session was the best of the whole series, you were far more lively and I learnt a lot more as a result”

I’ve had so many additional comments from candidates that attended your presentation that I felt it only right that I should let you know just how well it went down with them. Your absolute professionalism, genuine enthusiasm and motivation was encouraging to many as was the succinct way it was delivered. Additionally the top scores that you received from ALL the attendees endorses that high regard and you are to be congratulated on your achievement.

Target: Leaders and Managers

Networking, like a Ninja

Networking should grow your business and increase your profile, Why do so many business owners think it’s a soul destroying waste of time? Where is it going wrong and how they do something about it?

A different approach and great fun, challenging, presentation which makes people think differently” Chris Ives – Regional Leader 4Networking

Unleash your intropreneur

You have quieter team members who probably find group settings more tiring. 67% of the introverts I’ve surveyed believe they’re at a disadvantage in business, do yours?

This presentation helps them understand their strengths, stop worrying about their perceived disadvantages and unleash the intropreneur within.

Target: Introverted Leaders

Jon and I worked together on a virtual talk at Future Frame 2020 and he was a fantastic addition to the keynote speakers.

His talk was very insightful, with great tips on how leaders can bring out the best of every team member.  Our audience feedback was very positive.

Business Development and sales

Having helped business owners to grow their firms for many years I also speak on business growth and sales, especially from the perspective of introverts in business and firms wanting to develop their expertise in a niche.

I wrote “Running Meetings that make things happen – how to get your whole team engaged, introvert and extrovert“, “Ninja Networking” and  co-wrote “The Go-To Expert“.

Jon is a master of using stories to get his point across, demonstrating his points by getting into people’s emotions. If you’re looking for a speaker to talk about being an introvert, Jon Baker is your man.

Personal Branding coach

If someone is going to help you to be a Go To Expert, then they need to have carved their own niche and that is exactly what Jon has done. I saw him speak and his content has great stories that are memorable, but actually the steps are not rocket science, they make perfect sense.
There’s the right amount of systematisation, common sense and structure to make things happen if you implement the tools. Great delivery and full of stories I could listen to all day!

“I have had the pleasure of attending a number of Jon’s presentations, he is a very engaging speaker with a relaxed style that puts his audience at ease. One of his greatest skills is ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to participate in the event, often in a practical way so that everyone leaves with the feeling they have not only learned a new skill, but made a positive contribution.”
