Economic slump — BRING IT ON!

In this New action keynote Gavin “action man” Sharples, in his unique way, tells it like it is and how to be up in a down world.
If you are tired of the doom and gloom, tired of the moans and groans, tired of the negative, depressing predictions of the canteen visitors, then

BRING IT ON is the perfect antidote.

In this action packed keynote Gavin will demonstrate, show, tell, explain and laugh his way to:

  • The three action secrets to turning the economic slump into an      economic boom;
  • How to save hundreds of thousands in monthly expenses, (and jobs) by doing and enforcing      one simple action;
  • How to close more business, make new customers, and make oodles of money      by using the one secret action      of the greatest salesman in the world;
  • How to have a financially secure      staff who will perform better, stress less, and have happier attitudes.      This one action will put you in      front of the line to get your own money;
  • Stop thinking outside the box, it’s not working! The time has come      to do it outside the box;
  • Having an attitude to face almost      anything, whilst looking at any      challenge with the attitude – bring it on!
  • Discover your and your team’s      greatest gift and the one thing      that differentiates you from the rest. It cannot be copied and is      your secret weapon.


In this Action Keynote, Chinking is all about Change in Action!

  • Ever wonder why initiatives don’t last and hardly ever work?
  • Wonder how to get your people to change and to accept changes in the organization?
  • Tired of the same old ideas and ”boring” presentations on change?
  • Are you really serious about doing something different or are you just paying lip service?
  • Have you got the temperament to really do something different?

Then the CHINKING Action Keynote is just for you.
In approximately 70 minutes you will get an inspiring, funny, emotional talk filled with ideas to inspire results and get people to understand and perhaps even welcome Change.

CHINKING will show you:

  • The  foundation to all successful companies, industries and people.
  • The results of our life long course in conformity.
  • How to discover and laugh at, and with each other, at our weird, common, experiences that make us resistant to change.

CHINKING gives practical action solutions.

  • How to BE THE CHANGE, shows that until a change takes place in the individual the company stays the same.
  • How to identify the two basic personality types in the company and how to CHINK to the one that works.
  • How to give staff a massive check up from the neck up and change the most important part of their game.

CHINKING can be tailored to address sales, service, change management, performance or any other issue your company might be going through. This is done by aiming all the examples at the issues at hand.

This effective, relevant and practical 60 min. presentation reveals the BIG 5 Sales Actions that are required to double sales results.

GAVIN SHARPLES has taken Africa’s Big 5 and used their characteristics, instincts and behaviours to demonstrate what it takes to succeed in a modern day urban jungle. Most sales talks make sales out to be a complex, lie down and take an aspirin process. Sales are easy if you have these five action steps. These ideas are so powerful others have copied them, which is proof enough that they really work.

So what’s in it for you?

  • TheBuffalo– The most intense of the big five and his 3 behaviours that will guarantee sales results.
  • The Rhino – Has been around for over 40 million years and has habits and actions that millionaire sales people      use.
  • The Elephant – The wisest and real king of the jungle. Learn what really sells and what people really buy. Not even Sales Managers know the stuff that doubles sales.
  • The Leopard – The stealth hunter that does change it’s spots will teach how to generate more leads than you can imagine.
  • The Lion – This closer will in one short game teach how to negotiate and get truck loads more business.

Money back Guarantee

Use these actions (and show proof thereof, most companies never follow through with the action steps) for 90 days and see no major change in the sales results and you get your money back. Activate the guarantee and get the results and my fee double or you pay me 10% of all additional profits.

Intensive Process Option

This is also available in a workshop process over 6 months. Each module lasts two hours and is delivered monthly with measurables.
