Paxman-Proof and Paper-Free

Telling stories is different from reading from a script. And being able to answer questions about the story is often far more important than the story itself.

Being able to speak without notes and with passion and fluency will set you apart. It is generally expected. It is very seldom delivered. I call this Paper-Free.

Being able to handle even the most robust of questioning is where true professionalism completes the package. I call this Paxman-Proof.

With training and effort you CAN be Paxman-Proof and Paper-Free.

MessageCraft® requires you to do your bit. Homework is standard. If you do your homework and I do my job properly you will be both Paper-Free and Paxman-Proof.

Anybody who claims they own a magic bullet to giving brilliant presentations and speeches without any hard work or input on your part is a liar. MessageCraft® works better and quicker than any other method I have seen. Clients tell me the process sticks in their heads for years after we have worked together.

“What I find amazing is that the detail he gave still lasts with me after more than a year. Most courses I have been on I have forgotten after a few hours.”

Stuart Andrew, Member of Parliament for Pudsey.

Stuart is a very professional and experienced fundraiser and raised millions of pounds every year for Martin House Childrens’ Hospice in Leeds, before becoming an MP.

MessageCraft® makes you nimble on your feet and stops you having to rely on learning things off by heart and being clunky, cumbersome and vulnerable to interruptions in your delivery as a result.

Any graduate trying to secure a training contract with the top city law firms will know the competition is tougher than ever this year. The number of applicants has soared even as contracts have become scarce. It’s not uncommon for a firm to interview 250 applicants for 50 places.

For my top-choice firm I knew I had to do something special. In the week prior to I-day, Peter gave me two telephone interviews. The first took me to pieces: it showed me all the gaps in my knowledge and the inadequacies in what I’d genuinely thought was my in-depth preparation. I had to go away and do some serious work.

By the end of the second interview I felt like I could handle whatever trick questions a panel of partners could throw at me. I knew exactly what I wanted to say, what was special about me and how to get that across to the interviewer. The confidence he gave me was invaluable. The firm offered me full sponsorship and a contract within a week. I really can’t recommend him enough.
