Chris Parker

The Power of Words


Chris Parker - What others say:

Throughout the year I look across world sport and other industries for high performance insights to help individuals, teams and organisations gain a competitive edge. Since world class communication is the bedrock of a high performing organisation it's an area of focus and Chris Parker has been my expert in this field for the last few years.  He has a wealth of knowledge on communication best practice and influence and has brought that to a wider professional audience in sport through a regular column in my quarterly journal (Performance), and his involvement at the international Leaders Performance Conference 2014, alongside other experts such as Arsene Wenger and Andy Flower.

Marsh Risk Consulting is a part of MMC, the world’s largest risk advisory business. We employed Chris to support our 2015 conference on the art of customer service. He met our very specific requirements. His preparation was flexible and thorough and his delivery passionate and insightful.  The outcome was that our conference was an outstanding success.  Feedback included comments such as “truly motivational”. We secured real value from Chris’s appointment and would not hesitate to recommend him to others. He is an expert in leadership and communication and we are enhancing our client experience as a result of working with him.

Chris has a way of eliminating old destructive patterns of behaviour to create new behaviours that serve you better in your life; he can do this without you even realising it.

For me, having great communication skills is the most important life skill a person can have. Chris can help anyone improve the communication skills that will enhance both their professional and social life. Chris also teaches effective – and vital – business communication skills including creating a compelling narrative, word choice and sequencing, message clarification, using voice tone and body language to influence positively.

I recommend Chris most highly.

Chris was my first choice when planning specific and tailored management coaching for the senior management of both Franco’s and Wiltons restaurants.

Chris was extremely adept at grasping the particular personality traits and styles of each manager he was to spend time with. He quickly grasped the essence of what I wished to achieve with each manager and instilled a confidence in me that he knew how to go about this.

This was confirmed by the positive feedback I received from the all the managers who universally communicated not only their enjoyment but also the benefit of the training.

After each training session Chris took time to provide a summary of the issues raised without compromising on their client confidentially.

I am very pleased that each manager welcomed the training and saw it as a positive exercise and experience that they would repeat.

The benefits of his training continue to be seen in the increased motivation and enthusiasm of the managers.
