In his own words “I’ve learnt how to have those conversations. Which words to use to entice, engage and sell. So let me help you be more confident about the words you use, the tone of voice you need to adopt, the conversations you can have and the communication you should write, so you can sell more successfully across all media and channels, both online and off.”
