Tony Chapman Topic Presentations

how to get heard in the age of noise - master storytelling to engage the ‘head, heart and hands’ of any audience

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Attention is the oxygen of most human endeavour, but in the Age of Noise most brands, ideas and proposals are starving for attention. Too many choices and too much content are competing for a finite amount of our audience’s time. So how do we get heard? We stop telling our story and become part of theirs.

    Tony Chapman will draw upon his three decades of crafting powerful stories that engage the ‘head, heart and hands’ of audiences across all industry sectors. He uses entertaining and enlightening case studies to show why any audience-employees, customers, prospects and investors and all face-to-face and digital channels respond to this powerful and emotive platform.

from a place to buy to the place to be how bricks can counter clicks by minding their p’s but owning their b’s.

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • This talk is packed with actionable insights and ideas, for Retailers, Hospitality and Tourism Operators, and any other business who relies on a physical location to conduct business. The 6 P’s that once drove profitable traffic to your door – Premise, Product, Promotion, Price, Place and People are being neutered by the Platform Economy which has put the world each consumer desires within arms reach. Players such as Amazon, Apple, Alibaba, Shopify, airbnb, Uber, Netflix, Skip and thousands more have hijacked the mobile phone as a Trojan Horse, to digital matchmake sellers to consumers with hyper-personalized offers that are delivered with precision. In 15 years they have rewritten the rules of capitalism and combined have a market cap in excess of $7.1 trillion dollars.

    To counter the Platform Economy, operators must pivot from a place to buy which is impossible to defend to the place to be, a territory steeped in emotion and personal experience that only a physical space can offer. To illustrate his points, Tony Chapman draws upon global case studies, customized to your sector, to share how you can identify the Be’s that are relevant to your consumer and your brand.

stop telling your story, become part of mine - how to get the attention of the people that matter most to you

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Attention is the oxygen of endeavor, yet many ideas, brands, people and even Leaders struggle to be heard. Why? There is ‘too much and too many’ chasing a finite amount of time, and personal devices and social media are commanding more and more of it. In Stop Telling Your Story, Become Part of Mine, Tony Chapman will show how to get the attention of those who matter most to you. Learn the secrets of master storytellers, but with a twist that both engages and persuades the ‘head, heart and hands’ of your employees, peers, customers and key influencers.

a brand new world - make things happen versus wonder what happened

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Tony Chapman was the Opening Keynote for Google’s Think 2018 Conference. Tony premiered A Brand New World to rave reviews. Drawing upon the last five years, where he has delivered transformative keynotes in China, Brazil, Spain, Poland, Scotland and across North America, and his weekly contribution to the conversation on national television and radio, he offers the following point of view on the future.

    Tony outlines the critical forces of change that are rendering much of what we know about leading businesses and even societies obsolete. A growing divide has collapsed the middle ground. You are either making things happen or wondering what happened, there is no status quo. Tony looks at how to make things happen by first identifying then giving the people that matter most to you – employees, customers, prospects, influencers, and investors ‘More and Less’. More of what matters to each of them – value added personalization, with less friction and effort. He shows how do dot the three ‘I’s’. Insight, Imagination and Intention.

    In this Brand New World there is no middle ground. You must make things happen versus wonder what happened.

reciprocity - how to give, share, create and collaborate to gain the trust and loyalty of others

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Humans are social creatures who survive and thrive through reciprocal experiences. We give, learn, go and grow. We pull together, and in doing so, we build communities, countries, collaborative cultures and the human spirit.

    Reciprocity, the lifeblood of humanity, is being challenged by many of today’s’ technologies. Humans are being conditioned to promote themselves in social media and are obsessed with finding their 15 megs of fame. Often, we do this, with little regard for others. We clamour to push forward our stories, ideas, content and selfies with the sole purpose of finding others who can give us ‘likes’, while we offer little or nothing in return.

    Conferences that bring people together must now serve an even higher purpose than education and networking, they must combat this insular ‘selfie ’behaviour. To do so, we must create reciprocal experiences where attendees come engage and share together. Experiences that make our collective minds ignite, eyes shine, and hearts beat. In doing so, we fuel the positive psyche of each attendee and the collective spirit and culture of the organization they belong to. We learn that by giving unconditionally can we gain and earn the trust and loyalty of our peers, customers and our greater community.

    Tony Chapman’s inspirational keynote uses powerful graphics, video content and stories to bring to life powerful examples of Reciprocity and why it is the lifeblood of humanity. Only by giving and sharing, by pulling together, can we gain as individuals and as a species, and in doing so earn the trust of others. The same holds true for reciprocity in Leadership, Human Resources and Marketing and Sales.

    The challenge is that the principles of Reciprocity are being challenged by today’s ‘selfie’ technology where giving to get likes and social media validation is overruling ‘giving to gain and earn.

    Tony then talks about the need to combat an increasingly insular society. He shares his thoughts on why success will come to Leaders and Individuals who go beyond quotas and transactions to create a greater purpose, to build corporate, sales and marketing culture of reciprocity. A culture where people freely give, share, create and collaborate with generosity and humility gain the trust and loyalty of each other.
