International Speaking Circuit: Things to know
Conquering the International Speaking Circuit Essential things you should know
 

England

We moved from South Africa to England nine 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 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.

Speaking in South Africa
International Speaking : South Africa
 
There is nothing quite as beautiful as an African dawn. Sitting in an open Jeep, watching elephant, zebra and buck at the waterhole while the sun shows its face is a feeling that can only be experienced not described.

Professional Speaking: How to Break into the International Market

Professional Speaking - How to break into the International Market

Choose your unique and specialty market. My market was initially the English speaking International Financial Services market. Over the years this has spread to include the IT and software market as well as any company in any country where people can understand English. Because of my delivery style, I have chosen not to work with translators (at this stage)

What Leaders are Saying

Hans Poortvliet, Managing Director, HSMAI Holland

 

While working on the details of our 2008 LEADERSHIP programme, Mr. Furness was suggested to us by various people. Were they ever right! After a brief, but very pleasant and 'to the point' telephone conversation, I was fully confident that Frank was definitely 'our man'. Seen his extensive background in sales, we asked Mr. Furness to take care of the 'HSMAI Leadership in Sales' Event on March 13th 2008. Frank delivered that afternoon an upbeat, dynamic and cutting edge presentation on sales & marketing. Filled with humour, impressive facts, 'speaking' pictures and many, many practical sales tools. Afterwards he left the audience with several dedicated websites full of practical tools for their review and use. The feedback we got from our members was nothing less then superb! I therefore can only strongly advise any organization (looking for the 'latest in sales & marketing') to contact or even better: 'secure' Mr. Frank Furness for their programme.

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.

Thank you for a job well done in Budapest. You will no doubt be pleased to hear you were rated the top speaker out of the 18 speakers. In the comments section the respondents wrote the following: motivational, very good, relevant to all and: 'it  underlined the importance of people in the organisation'.

Abi Doyle, Head of Group Marketing, The Premier Paper Group

 

Not only did you put on an excellent programme...people have been talking about you non-stop. But also for not acting the Prima Donna! You worked really hard and you got the message across.
Abi Doyle, Head of Group Marketing, The Premier Paper Group

Paul du Toit, MD the Congruence Group

 

"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!"
Paul du Toit, MD the Congruence Group

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

Keith Millard, Chairman—The Executive Council

Sean Farnell, Partner, Client Services, Burgis & Bullock, Chartered Accountants, Scotland

 

"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.

Robert Bailey, President and CEO, Abacus International Pte Ltd

 

CEO level delegates attending the inaugural Abacus International Online Travel Leaders Retreat rated Frank Furness as one of the most appreciated contributors at the event held in Macau on 4-6 July 2008. His presentation not only provided thought provoking new perspectives for online Travel Agencies, the delegates attending felt that many of the tactics and techniques for online marketing could be implemented almost immediately. We greatly appreciated Frank's contribution to the Retreat and with its sound mix of robust thinking and practical advice and would welcome him as a presenter at our events in the future.

Stuart Thomson, MD of PIC, Dubai

 

After many years in the sales industry, it has been highly refreshing to find a professional who can rekindle the fire in our sales force. Frank's professionalism and knowledge of sales in my opinion cannot be equaled and since his motivational talk, there has been a dramatic increase in our sales figures.
