Marc Hogan an ex-sales and marketing professional with over 14 years experience,his Funny Business, S.A.L.E.S. and Inspirational Communication programmes have inspired audiences to seek out opportunities, tackle challenges & improve their communication and influencing skills.

His personal and inspirational journey into comedy, complete with setbacks, triumphs and even a few tears and tantrums, will inspire the audience to see new possibilities and will teach them how to take personal action to achieve their goals. They will leave the room energised and empowered, ready to take on whatever lies ahead.

Whether you are conscious of it or not, we all sell everyday. Some of us are paid to sell a product or service to our customers, others need to present our ideas to the Board, ask for a pay rise, or even try to convince our children to eat their greens.

No one likes to be “sold” to and God forbid that somebody tries to “close” us. So, what if, rather than your customer being “sold to” you could solve their problems for a fair and reasonable fee?

Marc’s 5 step S.A.L.E.S. system will not only inspire your team, improve their communication skills and increase their sales. It will also ensure that they and their customers enjoy the process a whole lot more!

Depending upon audience size and organisational requirements, the S.A.L.E.S. system can be delivered as either an inspiring 90 minute keynote speech or for those looking for more in-depth knowledge it can be learnt over a one or two day training event.

Can a sales & communications trainer become an Edinburgh Festival comic in less than 12 months – all to win a £1 bet?

In August 2008, while giving a talk to a business audience, a fellow speaker told Marc Hogan that he was “quite funny”. But would a paying audience who expect – nay, demand – laughs, think the same?
“So, you want me to do an open mic spot at a comedy club then?” Marc Hogan replied, “Right you are!”

And so it began; the open spots, the sleepless nights, the laughs, the silences, the boos, the booze,and the endless, endless writing, rewriting, rephrasing and finding different words for what became the biggest challenge of Marc’s life.

His personal and inspirational journey into comedy, complete with setbacks, triumphs and even a few tears and tantrums, will inspire the audience to see new possibilities and will teach them how to take personal action to achieve their goals. They will leave the room energised and empowered, ready to take on whatever lies ahead.

Marc’s presentation is ideally suited as a conference keynote or after dinner speech with a profile of senior management to executive level.

Marc can tailor the presentation to focus on:

  • Dealing with challenges
  • Taking risks
  • Presentation skills
  • Networking
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Team building
