Martin Brooks on giving pitches and presentations with greater impact - MAF152

On the show this week, I talk to Martin Brooks. He's an "Impacttologist".

We chat about creating a greater impact in your pitches and presentations. How to convince, influence and motivate others.

Welcome to episode 152 of the Marketing and Finance Podcast. 

We chat about:

  • What an impattologist actually is
  • How a background in the travel industry shaped Martin's career as a communication and sales trainer
  • Combining psychology with communication skills to convince, influence and motivate those you're speaking to
  • Using tone of voice and rhetorical techniques to push home a message
  • How Martin's digital coaching process works and cuts out the tedium of travel
  • How to keep your audience’s attention and stop them reaching for their mobile devices

Who is Martin Brooks?

Martin describes himself as an "Impacttologist". A person who studies the behaviour of the world's top communicators to understand how they convince, influence and motivate others.

He's an enabler of people's potential. Through his feedback, coaching and advice, he helps people create the "impact" in presentations that are representative of their potential - rather than their current combination of confidence and communication skills.
