Featured Topics Include:

1
Something About The Beatles

Mike uses The Beatles as an example of how to be creative and entrepreneurial, explaining how to overcome the challenges you will face along the way. Something About The Beatles is a highly inspiring, entertaining, and informative keynote presentation.

Something About the Beatles is full of great music, and practical learning points from Mike’s twin careers as a highly successful serial entrepreneur and professional musician, all delivered with energy, style, and humour.

2
Sales on a Beermat (Sales for Non-Salespeople)

We would all like to increase the revenue of our companies, but not all of us are experienced, salespeople. Small businesses have to generate revenue but often do not have a purpose-built salesperson.

Larger organisations have many people involved in the sales process who do not have much formal sales training such as consultants, engineers, lawyers, and accountants.

Mike Southon shows how everybody can sell, featuring material from the best-selling book, Sales on a Beermat.

Mike’s presentation explains the simple steps any company can take to double their sales immediately without spending money on expensive marketing campaigns. It also shows how everyone, especially non-salespeople, can be involved in the sales process without feeling sleazy or uncomfortable.
