The Best Business Presentation that you have Ever Slept Through

with Curt Skene

Drawing on his award-winning career at Microsoft and ExecuTrain, his
years as a Certified Hypnotist and that of being a father (yes, kids
can provide incredible business lessons), Curt Skene will inspire his
audience with ideas on how to find more business, create more
opportunities, be more creative and have more fun. The fact that anyone
may jump up and quack like a duck…. well, that would just be pure
In this presentation Curt will demonstrate the powerful role that the
“Right Brain” plays in influencing business opportunity. The audience
will learn how assumptions, perception, emotions and imagery can and
will, impact your bottom line. Throughout the session Curt will
introduce and present a number of insights and questions that he feels
every business professional should be asking themselves.
In this session the audience will learn:

  • What drives personal motivation to succeed?
  • How do assumptions, associations and perception impact buying behavior?
  • What do people really buy?
  • Creating WOW!
  • Understanding that people buy with emotion and justify with logic.
  • And much much more…
