Stuart Knight

Entrepreneur, Teaching your Team how to Build Critical Relationships one Powerful Conversation at a Time.

Stuart Knight is a graduate from the School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University and today is an award winning entrepreneur, critically acclaimed author, and producer extraordinaire. Sixteen years ago he thought teenagers were getting the wrong advice, so he wrote a show for them that ended up touring nationally with Coca Cola. Ten years ago he didn’t know how to play an instrument, so using computer software he wrote two musicals that sold out to thousands of people across Toronto. Four years ago he noticed too many people having predictable conversations, which led him to write a critically acclaimed book teaching people how to create powerful connections. Two years ago he was dared to pitch a new business idea on TV and the idea is now about to become the world’s biggest speaking event. And when he wasn’t doing that, he stood on stage speaking to people about being their best. To be precise, it’s been over 1 million people so for. Each year he speaks nationally helping some of Canada’s biggest companies reach new levels of success.

Stuart Knight has also written songs that have been heard around the world and commercials that have been seen nationally. And you may have seen or heard him on some of Canada’s biggest TV and Radio stations where he is often asked for his expert opinion. He launched the Top Ten Event, which has raised thousands of dollars for charities in need and garnered almost 20 million media impressions.

He is the author of the exciting book entitled You Should Have Asked, the Art of Powerful Conversation and is currently finishing his second book, which will be hitting the market soon! As a renegade visionary, Stuart Knight has taken gut wrenching risks and came out on top. Today, with hilarious stories and thought provoking insights, he shares the lessons he has learned helping people reach goals they never imagined they could attain.

The Art Of Powerful Conversation
WORKSHOP: 2-3 hours depending on time constraints of the organization.
Having employees who possess the ability to connect with co-workers, customers, clients, service providers and administrators is key to any organization’s success. Every interaction we have with another human being is an opportunity to build trust with those that matter and dramatically increase the productivity of the team as a whole. Although texting, faxing and emailing are part of any business, nothing beats the positive results one receives by connecting face to face and voice to voice.

The Art of Powerful Conversation teaches your team how to infuse the “human factor” into their important business activities. Whether it’s selling a product or rallying colleagues behind a new concept, people are influenced by those they can relate to and understand. The Art of Powerful Conversation will give your team the skills they need to create relationships with those that impact your bottom line. If your company truly values its people, then stand behind that mission statement and create a corporate culture that is seen in action.
