Get Good® At Life
In this keynote session, Lee helps your teams to understand the importance of team connection, true motivation, and real researched resilience. He helps and encourages them to understand themselves and their motivations better, and to help them become more efficient and creative.
KEY TALKING POINTS
MOTIVATION: What is motivation? How do we keep ourselves motivated day-to-day? And understanding the factors that get us to work. Lee covers areas of understanding “the why”, i.e. why we go to work, tapping into our personal drivers. When we understand how we tick, it really helps our day-to-day work.
PRODUCTIVITY: Sharing tips and tricks to keep productive while in or away from the office, with tips on focussing better and beating procrastination.
RESILIENCE: Or, as Lee refers to it, the “Keeping On Going”. He’ll share stories and tips to help us keep going, including encouraging them to communicate well as a team and support each other, and their wellbeing in these challenging times.
DELIVERY METHOD: Lee delivers this content either in person or online. He delivers with passion and enthusiasm to make it feel different and engaging. It won’t be a standard talk. Using great stories and quick-moving content from his research, he keeps audiences engaged, listening, and interested to make it more memorable.
LENGTH OF SESSION: Lee can do anything from 10 minutes to a whole day, and would adjust it as needed. It can be ideal for a keynote conference talk, a ‘lunch and learn’ or ‘learning burst’, or a half/full day.
FORMAT: This can be delivered in person or remotely with built-in interaction and Q&A to deepen the learning. Lee can also do a recap video too which he often does for clients, with a handout and a link to a dedicated follow-up webpage.
Get Good® At Presenting
How to present and pitch with confidence and authentic. From learning to use the audience (or the camera), through to the planning and delivery of powerful, persuasive, and authentic presentations, and NOT the usual death by PowerPoint.
Participants will learn how to Get Good® at preparing and delivering presentations and pitches. They will deliver upfront with greater personal confidence. They will also learn to deal with their anxiety that can make them nervous while presenting, learn to be more authentic, and make them less reliant on scripts and overly complex slides. They will be able to draw up a personal action plan of skills to be developed further.
OUTCOMES: By the end of this session, attendees will have the skills to design simpler, more effective talks and deliver more authentic engaging talks that will motivate and connect with their audiences much better. They’ll stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.
LASTING IMPACT AND APPROACH: When asked to do a presentation following this session, participants didn’t automatically use a blank PowerPoint template and a list of bullet points. People noticed a positive change in the simplicity and authenticity of their delivery.
– Get to the core of their message to make their planning and delivery simpler
– Understand that great stories simply make talks more memorable.
– Discern the difference that a good handout can make to help simplify talks.
– Recognise that their bad thought routines are making them anxious.
– To be bigger, bolder, and more confident when speaking.
Lee is not a trainer who delivers occasional presentation coaching, he’s a genuine multi-award-winning professional speaker. Speaking is what he does – that makes an enormous diﬀerence. His content is funny, engaging, well researched, but above all usable. Leaders have changed their lacklustre presentations after his sessions and it’s made a diﬀerence to their organisations and their proﬁt. His approach is very practical, down-to-earth and it works.
OTHER KEYNOTE TOPICS
– Presentation Skills
Lee has worked with us as a presentation consultant to make our nation-wide communications meetings the best they can be. There were some great conclusions from his consultation work. The main change has been that we are weaning the presenters off wordy slides and the presenters are now being challenged to learn their script. He was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable on presentation skills and slide design. We look forward to working with him again.

Lee Jackson was a brilliant presentation skills trainer – I learned so much and it was a really enjoyable day, also great for team building. A really positive experience.
I have been fortunate enough to have attended several of Lee’s talks and each time I take away some new ideas and strengthen my learning. He has the ability to engage delegates with great skill and his passions for his subjects are clear to see. Looking forward to the next opportunity to work with him.
