Lee Warren

Co-Founder of Invisible Advantage

Lee Warren has been a professional magician and mind-reader for 20 years, he has a strong background in sales, and he now uses his background in magic, theatre and sales to give presentations, seminars and coaching to firms including Deloitte, EY, Barclays Wealth and HSBC, helping people to become more persuasive, present better and increase their ability to connect with colleagues and clients.

A member of the Magic Circle, he was described by Prince William as ‘absolutely amazing’. Lee has written sell-out theatre shows and has been a commissioned artist at The Royal Opera House. He’s fluent in Spanish and very good at playing the piano badly.

In a previous life, Lee was a sales manager at The Times Supplements; he worked for several years in media sales at News International; and, in 2010, he set up Invisible Advantage for the fun of trying to make a company successful in the middle of a recession! On the corporate circuit, he works mainly with global firms in finance, technology and marketing, helping others to get their message across to colleagues and clients more effectively; for example, “how to persuade anyone to do anything (well, almost)”, “why grown-ups don’t use PowerPoint”, and “how to make networking work”.

His practical and high-impact presentations, seminars and keynotes have been dubbed ‘business cabaret’. He operates according to two core beliefs: to entertain audiences with fun, interactive and memorable sessions, and to demonstrate that ‘soft skills’ are the key to personal and professional success. Lee Warren has spoken all over the globe at conferences, association events and internal meetings for many of the world’s largest organisations.

Lee knows that, in order to succeed at any level, it is vital to be persuasive and to connect with people.

“I was introduced to Maria after several speaker colleagues spoke so highly of her. I was really impressed that Maria took the time and trouble to come and see me give one of my signature seminars. She gave great feedback, based on an obviously deep knowledge and experience of what clients need and value.” Lee

Topics

‘Grown-Ups Don’t Use PowerPoint’

Presenting is an essential business skill and you are expected to be good at it. Most business presentations however are somewhere between dull and insanely dull - even worse, they don’t get their point across and just waste everyone’s time. This session will teach you how to think of a presentation from the audience’s point of view. We’ll look at the mistakes almost everyone makes in every presentation and how to avoid them. You’ll learn the technical and psychological skills that theatre practitioners and writers use to craft compelling messages that communicate your point and make people act on your ideas, and you’ll take away loads of tips and techniques to avoid ‘death by PowerPoint’. By the end of this session, you’ll never think about presenting in the same way again!

‘How to Persuade Anyone To Do Anything (well, almost!)’

In business, you have to be persuasive if you want to succeed at any level. During this interactive seminar Lee Warren fuses magic, business psychology and showbiz to create a ‘business cabaret’ event. You will learn the secret skills used by magicians and mind-readers to persuade and influence people. The seminar is light-hearted in tone, but with a focus on how to use these fascinating skills ethically in business situations, and communicate more persuasively with clients and colleagues. This is a ‘hands-on’ session, and everyone will get the chance to try out some of the new techniques immediately! This seminar is perfect for anyone who deals face-to-face with clients and colleagues and wants to be more influential and persuasive.

'Making Networking Work’

The BEST way of getting attendees to network - teach them how to do it in a fun, interactive session! Relationships drive business, and good networkers thrive in any environment. Many people, however, find face-to-face networking difficult, even when they’re experienced at it. Often, people mistake quantity for quality, and don’t know how to turn an initial contact into a business relationship. This interactive seminar helps you practise the skills needed to become a better networker. You’ll learn the best ways to meet people, the secret of remembering their names, when and how to leave a conversation and the skill of keeping a good conversation going. You’ll learn how to set clear goals, and create a referral strategy, rather than just handing out business cards and hoping for the best!

‘Sales Without Selling’

Many people find sales difficult. Often the reason for this is that people have a mindset that ‘sales’ is something manipulative. In fact, at the heart of selling is a simple idea – sales is about exchanging value. You’re helping people by providing a solution to a problem. The role of sales is to make sure that people get the best solution to their problem and that the process of buying the solution is as simple as possible. This seminar, in Lee's lighthearted, interactive style will help you to change the way you see ‘sales’ By the end of this session, you will feel more confident about having a sales conversation with a client, and know how to build trust during the sales process, by focusing on client needs and the client relationship. This means that you’re more motivated to work with clients towards valuable solutions and you’ll understand why people ‘love to buy, they just don’t want to be sold to’.

‘Life’s A Pitch’

If you sell your services or products through client presentations and pitches, this is the session for you. At the end of this workshop, you'll be able to structure and deliver an unforgettable pitch which connects emotionally with the client, and leaves the competition crying in front of their slides. We’ll cover: Why you’re probably pitching your fees the wrong way and what to do about it, how to ‘grab’ the audience’s attention immediately, how to give the client what they need rather than what they expect, how to use the pitch to build trust, how to stop being just like your competition, how to create the ideal conditions for negotiation during the pitch, and how to make sure that your p[itch is ‘referrable’ to all those decision-makers you never meet!
