There is a world of difference between simply presenting pre-prepared images and drawing ‘live’ as you speak.

- A picture is worth a thousand words – they will remember your pictures!
TED is a non- profit organisation devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics - from science to business to global issues - in more than 100 languages.
I am pleased to introduce my new book The Art of Business Communication. I have written it to help you develop the skills of drawing your key messages and ideas in memorable ways.
When Procter and Gamble arranged their 2010 trainers’ awards events they wanted something different for their delegates.
This was a huge event with 500 managers attending. Graham spoke on the topic of ‘Getting Your Message Across With Impact.’ He helped delegates through a powerful process of how to structure ideas to engage people.
Graham has run master classes for delegates who need to run training or simply be able to present ideas in engaging ways. These sessions have been so popular that he often runs the session several times at each conference.
