Winning With Words

Winning With Words by Steve Markwell is a programme focused on helping companies and individuals to communicate in public with clarity and persuasion. 

Communication in public remains a key factor in building a business and maintaining relationships. Whether it’s a presentation to a large group, a pitch to a customer, a one on one sales pitch or a speech at a party or wedding, you need to engage your audience and get your message across with clarity and persuasion.

Winning With Words will put  confidence and dynamism into your communication. Its techniques are built on practical experience of what delivers results. Steve had a long career with International Companies, including Ray – Ban and Procter and Gamble. He delivered presentations to management teams, Boards of Directors, and major customers. He trained others to make successful presentations. More recently Steve worked as Events Manager for Silent Pool Distillers, selling its super successful gin at Farmers’ Markets and major Festivals across the U.K.

Winning With Words believes in three basic principles. Your speech needs to have a solid and well thought through structure. You need to engage and entertain your audience . And training needs to be fun.

Winning With Words will always fit in with your business needs. They can train you and your staff. and work on individual pitches. Get in touch and Steve will happily arrange to come and visit you or your business for a discussion.
