The 2015 Client Conference was launched with a Trivial Pursuit session led by Wayne Shapiro from Trivia Madness. Competition was strong between the 10 teams of delegates. The ‘Dudes’ team won the Trivia segment.
The second half of the team competition was organised to compare the best & most resourceful “selfie” photos taken by any team during the 2 days. Different QT Hotel locations and personnel in the “selfie” contributed more points. The overall winners were the “Frubes” by a small margin of 2 points from the “Dudes”.
Ian, who is a National Speedball Champion, spoke with a passion of the need to focus, on discipline, motivation and achieving greater personal outcomes. He was witty and dynamic, as he shared insights into the importance of commitment to both process and preparation for business success.
Ian provided our conference delegates with valuable practical suggestions for improving negotiation to help the delegates understand how to influence people without being their direct authority manager as well as discussing options and ideas for managing stress.
Several adventurous delegates practiced their speedball skills ahead of the master class demonstration of championship speed and style from Ian himself.
