Totalling over 1.900 presentations, workshops and seminars for 240.000+ participants in 4 languages (Dutch, English, French and German) and in 14 countries, Guido Thys has been a steady factor in the MICE scene in Europe.
His favourite feedback comment “what an hilarious session, but that Belgian did have a compelling message” aptly summarises his approach.
The combination of sound and up-to-date theoretical knowledge and more than 30 years of experience as an entrepreneur in business services have turned him into a razor-sharp analytic who instantly identifies the weak and soft spots at every occasion.
His unstoppable sense of humour and lightning-fast improvisations turn each performance into an exuberant tailor-made event.
Propositions such as “The number of meetings in an organisation are a yardstick for its lack of leadership” have firmly established him as a controversial thinker who enjoys a lively debate.
Throughout the years his presentations, countless magazine contributions and 14 books have earned him the recognition as an important source of know-how and inspiration for entrepreneurs, managers and staff. Many of his concepts such as Box++ and the grantability factor are recurring elements in the strategy and activities of score of organisations.
A few comments:
• I had a wonderful time listening to this hilarious presentation. But it also provided me with another way of looking at things.
• Fast, clever and good!
• I enjoyed it tremendously, a very enthralling presentation!
• What a treat! In spite of the 'after the lunch' timing and the heat. Very recognizable!
• A good combination of message and packaging. Excellent closure.
• Time flew by!
• Really astonishing. After a somniferous day your presentation had the audience at the tip of their chairs again!!
Guido Thys’ most popular presentations and workshops include:
Workshop/Presentation Chase Your Customers Away
The audience has a brainstorm on techniques to chase their customers –annoying pests who prevent one from doing her/his real work- away. However, their laughter is reflected in a mirror which painfully comes closer every minute. The subsequent reversal of the story demonstrates that everyone is personally responsible for at least 50% of the value expected by customers.
Zombies are things that still take place in the organisation although they do/have not produced any value (anymore). Each company is infested with hundreds of them. In a light-hearted manner we will reduce their causes to the answer to three simpel questions that each organisation needs to answer. It is a call for intrapreneurship.
Our company has no future
In between outbursts of laughter we do away with classic excuses (“it’s all because of the crisis, of the customers, etc.”). We recognize that companies and organisations enjoy their right of existence to the extent in which they cleverly generate value for their customers. The mix of the message is highly tailor-made.
Hiring Guido Thys as a moderator entails four things. Your event will rigorously end on time. Interaction is guaranteed. Your audience will have a good laugh in between the serious presentations. And the “summary by the moderator” will be a sparkling energizer.
