Nick Saunders

After Dinner & Event Speaker (in association with SpeakOut)

Workplaces are disintegrating. A staggering 9 out of 10 people don't want to be at work (2018 Gallup poll - 87% of employees are not engaged). This indicates it is increasingly hard to engage employees - to keep, retain and hold a team together.

In an era where employee engagement is down to 15% and 4 in 10 employees report some form of interpersonal conflict at work, Nick Saunders helps individuals and teams transform the way they operate with others. He specialises in communication, collaboration and conflict resolution - enabling people and teams work together more effectively. Nick turns relationships into results.

Nick Saunders has a 25 year track record as a keynote speaker, trainer and bestselling author. He has helped over 150,000 individuals transform the way they work with others. He specialises in communication, collaboration and conflict resolution - by getting people to work together more effectively, function more professionally, collaborate more successfully, all of which leads to improved performance.

Nick does this by demonstrating that organisations are like families (he's known as Nick Saunders - The Family Man). You can choose your friends but families and work colleagues you are stuck with. However, you can still get on with them, and he shows you how by following 6 easy steps that you can start to use immediately.

Success in any organisation  is pretty much down to people communicating, cooperating and collaborating with colleagues, clients and customers. Nick Saunders reveals how to win over anyone and everyone. He takes you through a powerful, practical six step model that will enable you, your colleagues and teams to work together more effectively, collaborate more successfully and function more professionally - all of which leads to improved performance.
