Brett's Testimonials


A specialist in executive leadership communication

Brett Rutledge is a World Champion of Public Speaking and a gifted and highly experienced communicator who knows how to engage people and make your leadership communication effective.

Communication is the primary tool of leadership. Regardless of whether it is in front of a thousand people, a boardroom of executives or to a single colleague across a coffee table, if the information is important then we should convey it through speech. Email, video, memo or any other tools don’t do the job anywhere near as effectively as face-to-face verbal communication. This has always been the case and will continue to be so. When delivering information that really matters, your ability to effectively communicate in a verbal manner is crucial and sadly too many of our business leaders underperform and underachieve in this area.

The greatest problem with leadership communication is that so much of it is ineffective!

Too many executive leaders grossly overrate their communication effectiveness. Too many don’t understand how to communicate effectively or what effective communication even is. Too many mistakenly invest inordinate sums of energy in disproven and irrelevant communication theories and techniques.

Much of what we have been taught and led to believe about leadership communicationis just plain wrong!

As a specialist in executive leadership communication, Brett can immediately improve your communication effectiveness by developing and deepening your understanding of key principles. His approach is unique and his results are outstanding.

Improving your communication effectiveness is not about skill or technique it is about a completely different way of thinking!

We encourage you to look around and if what you read, hear and see excites you, then please get in touch.

Mastering The Master of Ceremonies

Welcome to the halfway point for the year or at least the halfway point for the Editorial. In this edition we look at the under-appreciated role of the Master of Ceremonies and consider the fun possibility of adding new words to the English language…

As I ponder retiring from the role of MC it occurs to me that I should set the record straight for those who are to follow in my footsteps. I therefore offer some sage advice about the importance of the MC as well as a few helpful tips.
