Enabling teams to work better together

What, why, who and how to refer Presence Communications

84% of B2B decision-makers start the buying process with a referral, according to Salesforce Data.

When you refer a solution provider to someone you know, you’re saving that someone time, effort and money.

You’re adding value to your relationship.

When you refer Presence Communications, you’re saving me time, effort and money too.

You’re creating opportunities for me to:

  • grow my business (thank you!) and
  • help you more (i.e. to underline that you care about your client’s success generally, not just with your specialist solution)

Please consider suggesting my help when you see a skills gap in your client’s work or hear about a communication-related challenge they’re experiencing.

This page describes who I want to help, how I can, and the ways you can refer me.

Value Proposition | Because Statement

Presence Communications helps teams work better together with tailored business communication training, individual coaching, and insightful True Colors workshops.

Because great ideas have no impact if you can’t communicate them effectively.

Just having intriguing ideas, practical products and savvy services isn’t enough – you need to be able to communicate their value to others clearly and concisely if they’re going to influence action.

As a communication confidence coach, I empower business people to express their ideas in ways that help them get the outcomes they want – on paper, online and in person.

Who Benefits Best from My Expertise and When

Can you think of people in your network who might match the following attributes and motivations?

If you notice these things about your clients and connections, if you hear them mention these types of challenges, then there’s a good chance I can help.

  • Team Leaders who have a new team they want to get to know quickly because:

    • they’re the new manager/team leader
    • new team members have joined
    • an all-new project team has been formed
  • and team leaders who are trying to get people to work together better as a team because:

    • unhappy, disengaged workers and absenteeism are creating workflow problems
    • they’re falling behind on achieving team KPIs
    • dealing with complaints about colleagues and losing good people have become costly distractions

  • Managers with People & Culture in their title or portfolio who want:

    • a team-building activity that’s educational as well as fun
    • their great teams to stay connected and productive
    • to avoid losing the zing from their culture
    • and who are interested in:

      • a shorthand or common code for identifying different personality types
      • an established, credentialled, evidence-based program popular with global brands like Google, KRAFT, Disney, and GE Insurance

    • Managers with Learning & Development in their title or portfolio wanting to improve  communication confidence and capability in their organisation with training in:

      • business writing

      • collaborating and networking
      • and who are interested in:

        • workshops (online and in person)
        • executive coaching for emerging and existing leaders

      • Individuals who invest in their own professional development (e.g. executive coaching) because they:

        • want to stand out for project and job opportunities
        • are keen to be the best professional they can be
        • know communication is key to their career success
        • are developing leadership skills, moving from ‘technical’ expert to ‘purpose’ expert
        • or because they:

          • struggle to achieve desired results and outcomes
          • feel like they don’t have a voice, no one is paying attention to their ideas
          • stress about important presentations or reports
          • worry stuff isn’t getting done and they don’t know why (but they suspect it’s a communication problem)

          and others who need to lift their game because they:

          • have been told they have to improve (but not shown how)
          • feel their position or role in the organisation is under threat of loss or change
          • have a new role that requires a different skill set, e.g. transition from academic to business writing

        • Startup founders, micro and small business owners who want to give their ventures a solid foundation for success and prefer:

          • short learning programs
          • practical tools and ideas 
          • free or subsidised training
          • training that leads to a formal qualification

        Why Referring Presence Communications is a Smart Move

        • It’s a value-add to what you already do for your clients – you’re saving them time and effort when they need to solve communication-related problems.

        • What I do complements what you do – it’s collaborative, not competitive.

        • You’re familiar with my professionalism, so you know you can trust me not to put your reputation or relationships at risk.

        • You like helping people and here’s an easy, no-cost way you can help a colleague be more successful (see how below).

        • To save you time and effort, I can provide some short conversation, email or text wording.

        10 Ways to Refer Presence Communications

        If you believe we are aligned – we share similar values and approaches to delivering outcomes for clients, we offer complementary skills, services and resources – then here’s how to share the mutual respect:

        1. LinkedIn – like, comment on and share my  posts.

        2. Introduce me to people who you think could benefit from my services.

        3. In your regular newsletter, refer to my services or capabilities and provide a link to the relevant service webpage or Communisense blog post.

        4. Forward a Communisense blog post link to connections you think might find the post interesting and/or helpful (especially when you need a fresh pretext to send them an email or social media message).

        5. Buy my book as a gift for someone else.

        6. Write a review or testimonial that I can promote on this website and via social media.

        7. Suggest me for a guest speaking spot when you’re on an event organising committee.

        8. Include me as a communication/training expert in your project team, e.g. for bids and tenders.

        9. Pass on my business card (let me know which address and I’ll send you some to keep handy).

        10. Let’s co-create (and co-brand) a resource to share with our networks, e.g. podcast, whitepaper, tool kit, playbook, etc.

        Thank you for giving your time to think about referring Presence Communications (me!) to others in your network.

        I’m keen to find out how I can help to refer you too. Let’s make a time to talk.
