Alan Marion is highly effective as a pubic speaker due to his personable character and his years of hands on experience in the business world. He started his career as a door to door salesman and developed his skills to be National Sales and Training Manager for Mars Corporation and International Sales Manager for Original Juice Company growing the sales to $45 million in 7 years. This role included managing and motivating 126 commission distributors which was the key to the company’s success.
His seminars are coloured by the many stories of success and failure he has come across and experienced in his varied business endeavours both in Australia and overseas. He is highly entertaining and his enthusiasm to turn ideas into action rubs off on all participants.
His intention when he speaks is to call people to action and get businesses and teams on track to work as a fully functional operation. He does this through emphasising personal responsibility, having a ‘can do’ attitude and focussing on setting goals and achieving them through a methodical and practical system that he has developed over many years of managing teams.
The benefit of engaging Alan for seminars and conventions is that he is able to work with the client’s agenda, theme and intention and deliver a powerful program that motivates participants and inspires them to move forward in the direction the client wants them to.
Alan is often used either at the beginning or end of a convention as his sessions are highly interactive with the capacity to develop plans relating to the purpose of the convention. For example a company can create a sales and marketing plan, team building or customer service plan. These can be done in teams or in departmental groups. The sessions are highly flexible and individual requirements of companies will be discussed in detail prior to the event taking place.
Alan has been used by organisations such as Channel 9 small business shows, The Age Money Shows, Quest Apartments, Optus, Regional Development Victoria & Queensland Govt drought and flood relief to name a few.
Alan’s presentations are valuable either as the key note speaker of a function or as a session presenter running one of his various programs of Goal Achievement, Planning, Sales Training or Team building.
