Motivation & Inspiration
Travel and Speaking Tips - England by Frank Furness
We moved from South Africa to England fifteen years ago and for four years I worked in the City of London. It is now one of my favourite cities in the world. Flattened and rebuilt several times in the course of its long life, London is a fascinating combination of the new mingled with the very old. It has been said that when you tire of London, you tire of life. There is plenty to see and do and it is heralded as the theatrical centre of the world. Some of the great attractions include, The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, The Eye of London, St Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey to name just a few.

Goal Setting - Interview with Mr Universe

I am so fortunate in my work to meet great achievers. The one thing they all have in common, whether they have great businesses or are Olympic sportspeople are that they are all goal setters.

I love sport so working with the British Olympic and cricket team was a real thrill. Since I was 16 I have always worked out in the gym (you wouldn?t say so looking at my body) and followed weight lifting as a sport.

What Leaders are Saying

Ian Curran—MD THQ

 

Rome, - an offsite meeting with my reports -  heads of business from across the world, different nationalities, different backgrounds and different business areas. Frank conducted a half day session on day two of the three day meeting.
Frank is energised, motivated and engaging. There was no-one in the room who was not captivated by what he was saying. He had really prepared and tailored his material to fit into my required business outcomes. The whole morning was varied, interesting, moving, thought provoking and uplifting.
My team was left highly motivated for the business year ahead, driven, and armed with tools to help realise action plans. Testament to the impact of Frank’s session is that once back in the office, dealing with daily work issues, the team continues to pull on the resources and motivation gained from Frank.
I would highly recommend Frank – he is one of the best speakers I have ever had the opportunity to experience.

A day of sales training with Frank Furness so inspired our sales team that six weeks on, and they are still enthusiastically employing his techniques.  Each sales person in the office has their goals pinned up in front of them and we have a huge poster in the office which says ‘Think Frank’.

Frank has changed the way we work – he has given us confidence to enjoy the sales pitch and to sell better and more effectively.

"Frank Furness injects his presentations with a genuine passion for the subject bringing his message to life with real world examples drawing from blue-chip businesses he has helped to grow. Never boring and always informative Frank is one of the best speakers and trainers I have seen in a long time. Highly recommended.

Keith Millard, Chairman—The Executive Council

 

You provided the group with a wealth of ideas, techniques and practices to achieve greatly improved sales. The group greatly enjoyed the humour that threaded its way throughout your presentation without allowing this to turn the morning solely into entertainment. The focus on attitude and attributes of sales people, both in recruitment and ongoing performance was ideal for our group

I enjoyed it very much and found a lot of your stories awe inspiring, thought provoking and poignant.  You talked about a lot of remarkable people, yourself and family included and I have repeated a lot of these stories to my family, often with tears in my eyes!!

"Frank, congratulations on a great presentation on day 2 of the Dutch Convention in Amsterdam - the time always seems to whizz by when you're on stage, and your tips are always invaluable. If you had been given twice the time it probably would not have been enough. We need to get you to an upcoming convention in South Africa - and I believe nothing less than a pre-con would do you justice. Thanks and well done!"
