bidding to win

management consulting

Individually tailored programmes in message design and delivery, supported with aspects of theatre craft, to help executives to be compelling and memorable when presenting in the many different circumstances they may face. Deploys the “Kipper®” technique created by Willie Macnair previously of The Rhetorical Company, and now owned by Gareth Bunn.

Offered both for teams and for individuals, leadership coaching is based upon either the i-Lead system, which uses a personal "signature" as a foundation for gaining behavioural insight, and most importantly, insight into the drivers and behaviours of others, or Social Styles which is a non-proprietary system.

Increase your winning rate by using our assistance to bidding teams in the design of coherent and compelling presentation messages using the “TeamKipper®, coaching of the presenters, design of presentation events.

training for groups

I have over 40 years experience - working ultimately at senior and Executive levels - in both the Public and Private Sector and within Management Consultancy and IT Services.

I offer management consulting as a sole consultant drawing upon my areas of expertise and track record eg sales process.

Where small consulting teams are required, we can rapidly pull together the required skills using the many associates and organisations to which we are affiliated.

“A luxurious experience - 2 days in the presence of an expert”

Principal Consultant, Capgemini, Winning the Communication Game

“Gareth coaches using some simple, yet powerful techniques for structuring presentations which we have found to be extremely effective every time we’ve used them. We particularly like his style and approach which ensures his coaching sessions are highly informative and memorable whilst also being great fun.”

Senior Project Director, Skanska UK, Bid team coaching

"Great course, content learnt is practised and can be taken away to be applied in meetings, presentations and conversations"  

Asst Financial Accountant, Bluefin, Effective Communication

"Gareth is a battle hardened campaigner with bags of experience and a balanced approach. Very few times in my professional life have I been left grasping for more and pondering the present. I thoroughly enjoyed the mental challenges and found this experience one of the most valuable since leaving higher education. Whilst this may seem intimidating Gareth has an approach which makes it easy for all walks of life to engage successfully."

Competence and confidence in public speaking starts with a well designed message in a form appropriate to the audience and the event. In addition to the techniques of design, many people want help in dealing with nerves and “personal presence”.
