Ian Rowland/The Mind Man offers talks and training sessions on these main subjects.

Don't Block Your Mind, Unlock Your Mind!

The Mind Man's most popular presentation! In just one amazing, mind-opening hour, the Mind Man will demonstrate that most limitations only exist in your mind. If you're serious about personal or professional success, this hour will change your outlook and your life. There are many 'motivational' talks, but this is the best! Surprising, magical, fun... with live demonstrations you will never forget!

Creative Problem Solving

How to get from "It can't be done" to "We did it!" You will learn six new creative 'thinking tools' that help you to solve problems - even seemingly impossible ones.

Executive Presence And Charisma

You can learn to be a leader. "Yesterday was by far the best l'm starting to see the power of the tools you have taught me." - M. Patel, Tesla Corporation.

Persuasion Mastery

This presentation is based on a new model of persuasion that will transform your persuasive success. It's highly effective yet simple to learn and to use. It is primarily intended for business-to-business selling, but can be applied to just about any situation where you'd like to be more persuasive. It is unlike any other model or system, and is not available in books or online.

Memory Training

You can enjoy perfect, faultless recall of anything you want to remember. The Mind Man will show you how, in about three hours.

Sessions, talks

Typical sessions last 1 - 3 hours. Shorter talks (30-40 minutes) available for pre-lunch or after-dinner slots.

The Difference

When you're booking a speaker or trainer, you want someone "a bit different". Every Mind Man session has these distinctive features:

  • No PowerPoint or slides (so you can hold the session anywhere).
  • A clear focus on practical business benefits (often with case studies supporting each point).
  • Clear, structured content made easy to remember.
  • Active learning and participation throughout + takeaway literature.
  • Laughter (nobody learns anything if they're bored).
  • Intriguing touches of 'mind magic' to keep things interesting! (The Mind Man is a member of the Inner Magic Circle).
