Are you a great business developer, prospector and networker who knows how to create a positive connection with the people you meet? Are you a catalyst that creates a chemical reaction between strangers, and have the ability to effortlessly convert these opportunities into new business?

My guest David Kean is an expert at catalysing strangers into contacts and converting contacts into clients – and even into friends and has helped hundreds of companies around the world win billions in new business by applying the same methods. During this interview we will discuss wisdom from his new book ‘Catalyst: using personal chemistry to convert contacts into contracts’ which was co-authored with Louisa Clark.

Chris provided an incredible emotional intelligence program for my business. Chris delivered a series of eye opening sessions which enhanced the approach and style of our customer engagement.
