Speech Patterns & Communication Styles 
What is your Communication Style and Preference? 
Have you ever heard yourself saying “Why don’t they understand what I am saying” because in your mind you are being very clear?   Well you are not alone.   We might all be speaking English but it does not mean we are speaking the same language! It may be you will find that you need differing words and different information and communication styles dependant on the personality type and learning styles you have. 
 
The Relationship Between People & Money!  
This event took you on a fascinating exploration of people and how they relate to money. The old saying 'the love of money is the root of all evil' may be true however we all want more of it - that's why most of us are in business; and yet, most people when asked why they run their own business answer with:- to control my own destiny; to create my own work/life balance; to choose the people I want to worth with etc. These things may be true but we also want money! So why is it people don't say so? The reasons run deep and understanding these reasons will really help you convert more 'suspects' to 'prospects' to 'new clients'. The speaker: Shaz Nawaz understands - he is an authority on what makes people tick, business strategy and business growth.
