How we can help
Make An Impact
We assess your natural ability to make a room “light up” when you enter and offer simple techniques to enhance this. Often individuals come to us with alleged issues surrounding their “gravitas”. Gravitas is hard for many to define; often it is all about perceptions. We help change perceptions and after an Aziz programme individual sponsors report marked improvements in gravitas.
Engage Your Audience
We help get your key messages across by ensuring that audiences immediately “tune in” to a speaker.
We use a number of techniques ranging from psychological support to help a speaker flex their style to storytelling to bring alive a subject. An engaged audience is a happy audience and a happy audience is more inclined to buy what you are selling.
Make your Financial Presentations more Persuasive
It can be difficult to write compelling financial presentations. For those in business whose primary focus is not “the numbers”, eyes can glaze over when the FD gets up to speak.
We show you how to persuade an audience through identifying ”hot” buttons and helping a speaker press those buttons effectively. We help generate “killer facts” that will make an audience sit up and listen; key information which will get your audiences’ attention because they will ultimately benefit.
A presentation is useless if the audience simply nods compliantly but then goes away and does nothing. We establish early in the process the need to define your outcomes. With no end result in mind, a presentation is doomed to fail. We help speakers establish clear outcomes which leaves an audience in no doubt about what the “call to action” is.
