Leopardology and Presentology by Kivi Bernhard


Professional speaker and author, Kivi Bernhard contacted me on 25 July to say that he would be presenting to some blue chip companies in South Africa in December. He asked if I would be interested in setting up a seminar or two (Leopardology™ and Presentology™) for my South African clients. I checked out his credentials and spoke to a couple of professional speakers from the PSASA and got glowing reviews. So, here’s an opportunity to learn from someone who is considered to be one of the top ten platform speakers in the world today. As one of the few business motivational speakers in South Africa who speaks on direct marketing and sales, I’m keen to learn from Kivi.

Venue: Sunnyside Park Hotel, Parktown
Time: 08h00 – 11h00

I had to make this my first email of the day! Unfortunately, I had an early flight and missed your session on “Presentology™: The analysis of presentation and delivery excellence”, the second day of the meeting. All I have heard from ALL of my colleagues is that I missed a once in a lifetime experience for senior executive training. They said you were like nothing they have ever heard or experienced before. I have just purchased Leopardology, I’m very much looking forward to reading it and I am still kicking myself for not being there. It is all people are talking about.
