Why are Gilan’s presentations of interest and relevance?

In today’s age, just as much emphasis is placed on soft skills as hard skills. We all know talented, educated people in business with all the “hard” skills of their occupation, however, because business is a “contact sport” these people fail to reach their true potential because of their lack of ability to communicate and influence most effectively.

Gilan’s presentations can be applied to a diversity of events and required outcomes. You might be looking for a thought-provoking and entertaining show of the power of the mind, a keynote talk on reading and influencing people, or a comprehensive leadership, communication or sales training program. With over 17 years of experience, Gilan’s abilities as a Mentalist and certified leadership speaker, trainer and coach enables him to help you achieve your goals.

“Gilan aligned with our client’s objective and they loved it” –Nazmira Saloojee, The Actuate Group

The speaking and training circuit was not Gilan’s first stop: since the age of twelve he has been performing shows professionally. Having been mentored as a Mentalist, Gilan specializes in entertaining demonstrations of thought-reading, non-verbal communication, influence and other aspects of mentalism. Due to the high demand Gilan has joined the speaking circuit. Unlike any other speaker or trainer, Gilan is able to convey valuable and practical skills while at the same time engaging his audiences with interactive pieces of mentalism to optimize retention and heighten the experience for everyone involved.
