STOP BEING DELAYED BY SLOW RESPONSES & REWORKLEARN HOW TO GET BETTER, FASTER DECISIONS IN THE MIDST OF COMPLEXITY
Does your communication get the engagement it needs?
Many executives tell me their good ideas do not get the traction they deserve. They tell me they
- Leave leadership forums with more questions than answers, and are often asked to come back again before a decision will be made
- Work nights and weekends reworking the same recommendation after repeated rejections
- See their peers being promoted first because they have strong communication skills.
A lack of clarity may be costing you a great deal.
CATCH THE INTERVIEW
Heading into a new year is a good time to think and reset your plans for your career.
I recently interviewed Bill Cowan, author of Building a Winning Career.
Bill was generous with his wisdom, having spent ~20 years at McKinsey followed by ~30 years as a managing director and board member.
TAKE OUR FREE COURSE
How to Communicate With Impact offers four ideas that will help you think differently about executive communication.
Each module is about 10 minutes long and draws on our 25+ years' top-tier consulting and business communication experience.
ORDER OUR BOOK
The So What Strategy introduces classic storylines that answer one of the most uncomfortable questions in business.
The last thing you want to be asked at the end of a 40 minute presentation to the executive is “So, what?'. If you don't answer this question well all of your work can be for nothing.
We offer the seven most commonly used communication patterns we see being used in business to help you avoid that question.

I love what I do.
I have had the pleasure of helping smart people all over the world to clarify and communicate complex ideas for the past 25+ years.
I began this work when I joined McKinsey & Company in Hong Kong as a Communication Specialist before being approved by Barbara Minto to teach the Minto Pyramid Principle® in 2008.
Back in Australia I have built a team of seven that helps others see their good ideas get the traction they deserve.
The structured approach that I teach, the So What Strategy, helps people from almost every discipline.
I know this because not only do I teach, I get in the trenches alongside my clients and prepare the communication with them.
It offers a universal thinking process that enables you to articulate the breakthrough ideas lurking beneath the surface of your communication.
