11.15am - Myth Busting Making Tax Digital

As part of the government’s initiative to make the UK’s tax system “fit for the 21st Century”, Making Tax Digital (MTD) will see all businesses submitting all of their tax and VAT information to HM Revenue & Customs quarterly using MTD-compliant software.

While the start date for the Income and Corporation Tax reporting is yet to be confirmed, the first stage of this MTD for VAT was kicked off on 1st April 2019.

John Skinner, a senior manager at the Banbury office of Whitley Stimpson, will guide you through the "dos and don'ts" of MTD, explaining what needs to be done and when; leaving you feeling more prepared to face this new challenge to your business head on.

12.00 noon - Boost your face to face selling skills with hypnosis

If you’re a business owner or you’re in sales, or you interact with people on a regular basis in your profession or you just want to be more persuasive … then the single most important thing you can do is to learn how to improve your face to face selling skills.

Because without sales, you have no business!

In this content-rich presentation here’s what you’ll discover:

How to create rapport with anyone in 30 seconds or less (watch out for the hypnotic handshake technique)

How to use the power of a compliment which will help you present your offering in ‘your prospects motivational style’ – this is cutting edge psychology that will leave you smiling and with more business in your pocket and …

A classic way to present and sell that leaves the ‘closing’ up to your customer in a simple and elegant way.

“Gary… I am writing to thank you for the superb session you ran at my recent team meeting. It was exactly the combination I was looking for, a healthy portion of education matched to a physical (and mental) exercise. The feedback from my team was extremely positive and it was a session that will long live in their memories. I have recommended you to a number of my colleagues with WHSmith News and indeed friends outside”.

Jonathon Bunting – National Field Sales Manager – WHSmith News

“Gary … I feel you have captured the staff’s imagination with your unique approach to training. They seemed to feel it was more like a friendly chat with you rather than a hard sell of your suggestions. I believe they have become more customer focused and the sometimes subtle changes you suggested seemed to have a marked effect. To coin your phrase “it only works”.

Tom Jackson BSc.(Hons), MCOptom – Partner – Oakwood Eyecare Centre.

Wealth warning: Gary’s style is not for the faint-hearted or the thumb-suckers who like to whinge, whine and moan (you have been warned) – However, it is for forward-thinking people who are open to change and want to see their businesses soar way beyond where they are now. He is definitely suitable for those who like to combine serious business with fun. If that’s you, he looks forward to meeting with you to reveal the ‘dark arts of hypnosis’ and how you can apply them ethically in business.

Gary Outrageous. Best Selling Author, Professional Speaker and Provocative Mind-Set Coach inspires, challenges and motivates companies & business leaders to grow through proven evidence backed psychological approaches that work. He has worked with over 27,000 people through his 1:1, group and conference sessions – always striving to help others bring out the best inside of them and now he’s ready to work with you.
