Who Is This For?

Business Results Group has set up a unique opportunity that enables you to test our mettle and see what fits your business. Select from our range of keynotes and have one of our consultants facilitate a strategic conversation with your team, landing the keynote and the learning in real time.


The current economic environment means that more often than not, training budgets are tight and people have less time for training and development (needing to do more with less).  However the need to continuously develop learning and keep people engaged has never been more critical.  Businesses want and need a more tangible and immediate ROI on training and development. Current research also points clearly to the effectiveness of modular learning; short, sharp shots of content.  

All keynotes are founded on:

  • Purpose: defining and understanding the outcome for a session
  • Innovation: providing an opportunity to think differently and to generate ideas
  • Results: refining outputs into actions so that the team ultimately achieves a result

Options for keynote delivery:

Power Hour

Book one of Business Results Group’s expert presenters for a truly unique keynote experience.  This straight forward 60 minute keynote of your choice is ideal for events, company conferences, executive breakaways, motivational sessions and onsite fly backs.

Every keynote we deliver is unique, powerful and adapted for each client and context.

Keynotes & Conversations Workshops

This approach combines a 90-minute keynote with a facilitated strategic dialogue session. The keynote energises the team and provides fast learning of relevant content, whilst the facilitated conversation affords an opportunity to directly apply and embed that learning within to your own unique organisational context.

Be Really Great Day

An excellent way to get exposure to a broad range of world class content is to design your own day of learning.  Select from a range of 60 minute keynotes to energise, motivate and drive key learning concepts to your teams. Ensure immediate skills transfer and application of learning into business whilst maximising return and value for investment. This is also a very cost effective way to get exposure to a wide range of content or judge the organisational fit of a larger training intervention.
