Presentations 

Based on Filling the Glass, “[One of] The Seven Essential Popular Business Books” (Today’s Librarian), this is the antidote to sessions that are entertaining but full of “let’s all think happy thoughts and everything will be wonderful” fluff. It’s chock full of nuts and bolts content. Yet it’s real-world motivational, even inspirational. Perfect for the most cynical veteran AND the most starry-eyed (or the most discouraged) novice.

“Fantastic . . . The [over 200] evaluations reflected a near perfect score!”
—Anthony Trombetta, Director of Education, ISSA

Diplomacy has been called the art of telling people to go to hell in a way that they’ll actually look forward to the trip.  We don’t advocate telling your people, your customers, your co-workers or your bosses to go anywhere like that, but outstanding session shows you how to communicate with people of all types: to diplomatically, tactfully get what you want and get people to look forward to whatever trip you’d like them to take.

5.  De-Stress for Fun and Profit: Managing Stress to Promote Work/Life Balance and Restore the Joy of Living.

“Barry Maher—EXCELLENT
—Richard Joseph, Cruise Director, Princess Cruises

Stress can sour your career, ruin your health and sap the joy from your life. But there are only two ways of managing it. You can either change the situation that’s causing the stress or you can change the way you react to it.

Since changing the situation can often be difficult or even impossible, this wonderful, insightful and relaxing session from internationally renowned speaker and author, Barry Maher, focuses on transforming the way we deal with the stress in our lives, providing concrete, easy to implement tips, tactics and strategies. So you can control stress, rather than having stress control you.

This is truly a life altering session, and you will leave with quick, painless, long term solutions to one of the biggest problems in modern life: to restore the drive to your career, the spring to your step and the joy to your life.

6. Shut Up and Speak: Non-Verbal Communication

“I can’t believe how much they loved [Barry’s] presentation. It was a honor to bring such a well-received speaker to them.”
—Shari Ross Altarac, Speakers Platform Bureau

Body language, gestures, tone, proximity: when it comes to management, sales or just succeeding in business, non-verbal communications can make the difference between getting your message across and completely undermining it, the difference between understand those around you and just guessing.

When Barry did this session for the Association of Legal Administrators, 97.6% of respondents rated both the session and the speaker as “Excellent.” The remaining 2.4% rated both as “Very Good.”

  • Communications, leadership, professional development, career development.

7.  Selling Value Not Price

“Exceptional . . .  everyone has told me it was one of the most informative and entertaining training sessions they’ve experienced.”
—John Pechota, Director of Marketing, International Institute of the Americas

If you don’t establish value, you can’t sell a diamond for a dollar. Which without one of the greatest examples of establishing value of all time, might just be what a diamond is worth. And if the diamond people can do that with a product that is essentially a worthless rock (that only an expert can tell from a cubic zirconium) what should you be able to do with a product that can truly differentiate itself from the competition?

  • Sales, sales tactics, motivation, sales training.

8.  Business Writing Made Quick and Painless

Write faster and write better. Whether it’s email, reports, letters or memos, your writing can enhance your career rather than short-circuit  it. Let Barry Maher, author of “[One of] The Seven Essential Popular Business Books,” show you how easy it can be.

  • Communications, professional development, career development.

On average managers spend 40 to 50% of their time in meetings. As much as half of that time is wasted. Barry Maher, one of the country’s top management and leadership experts, shows you how to cut that waste to just about zero.
