(This website is plain and simple, because that’s all it needs to be.)
Ian Rowland/The Mind Man offers talks and training sessions on these main subjects.
How to get from “It can’t be done” to “We did it!” You will learn six new creative ‘thinking tools’ that help you to solve problems — even seemingly impossible ones.
A playful title with a serious message. You will learn smart communication skills that border on real-life mindreading. This is about understanding people, and communication, in new ways that help you to get on with other people, and will also help you to sell, manage and negotiate.
This is a new persuasion model that’s highly effective yet simple to learn and to use. It is primarily intended for business-to-business selling, but can be applied to just about any situation where you’d like to be more persuasive. It is unlike any other model or system, and is not available in books or online.
You can enjoy perfect, faultless recall of anything you want to remember. The Mind Man will show you how, in about three hours.
How to sell things in more imaginative and interesting ways. The Mind Man has worked in creative media and marketing, and is the former UK Head of Sales & Marketing for a global internet company. ‘Selling By Magic’ is about six ways to sell things without trying too hard.
This is the simplest, quickest way to learn this amazingly useful skill. There’s a lot of misinformation about speed reading. The Mind Man will simply tell you all you need to know, no more and no less, and you will prove for yourself that it works.
Typical sessions last 1 – 3 hours. Shorter talks (30-40 minutes) available for pre-lunch or after-dinner slots.
