Every Conversation Counts: How to Build Extraordinary Relationships +

Long before the year of ‘social distancing,’ loneliness was pandemic in our society. In an age of polarization, disconnection, and shallow substitutes for real relationships, every professional needs to know how to build and maintain genuine relationships with clients and colleagues alike. Audiences will leave this keynote with ‘Five Habits of Human Connection’ that offer practical tools to combat isolation and build deeper relationships.

With years of experience interviewing established leaders in business, entertainment and innovation, audiences will learn how to:

  • Spark real, authentic conversations to make meaningful connections, personally and professionally.
  • Earn trust and create new business, as you listen without distraction and make your small talk bigger.
  • De-escalate conflict and collaborate effectively by leading with assertive empathy.
  • Craft and tell compelling stories that will motivate your audience to take action.
  • Explore the questions that create breakthrough moments in any conversation.

This engaging experience is a candid and far-ranging look at how creative conversations can help you reinvent yourself, re-energize your brand, and further develop your business. --

Every Conversation Counts: Business & Relationship Building in the Virtual World +

This year has proved definitively that, while we can create a virtual equivalent to almost any in-person activity, that shift always involves some kind of loss. In a virtual environment, connections are harder to establish and easier to damage. This keynote will explore the ‘Five Habits of Human Connection’, offering audiences practical tools to build better relationships, create new business with clients and customers, and engage teams in a virtual world. --

How to Elevate Your (Virtual) Speaking Impact & Influence +

Every professional today needs to know how to deliver a virtual presentation with confidence, clarity, and authentic impact. Presenting virtually requires even greater attention to tone, delivery, and audience engagement than the in-person equivalent. This keynote draws on the “Five Habits of Human Connection” to give professionals the tools to captivate, engage and motivate their audiences to act now on their message.

Audiences Takeaways:

  • Learn the critical structure for highly effective virtual presentations.
  • Understand the Relationship-First Model to create new business.
  • Create authentic engagement online consistently.
  • Project confidence on camera to captivate your audience.
  • Craft compelling stories that persuade your audience to take action. --

We had our event with Riaz and we were so thrilled with him. He was such an engaging speaker and I know that the brokers in the room walked away with some helpful tips for connecting with their customers. We were blown away.

–Kaylie Russell, Marketing Manager, Gore Mutual

Riaz took the time to understand our audience and the culture of our organization and tailored a presentation that was outstanding. His message is crisp, and he took us through a roller-coaster of emotions — from laughter to tears, it was without question a memorable experience.

–Dong Lee, COO, DLC Group of Companies

His charm and charisma were only matched by the authentic way he told his compelling story. When the audience wasn’t laughing, you could’ve heard a pin drop as people wiped away tears. He treated his time on stage as though he were delivering a gift to cherished friends, making the standing ovation much deserved indeed.

–Host/Producer, Creative Mornings Vancouver

For the third time, Riaz hosted our annual leadership conference and he was just brilliant. His personal touch, sense of humour, and insight into what makes people successful was skillfully weaved throughout  the entire day. Riaz was an outstanding addition to our conference.

–Jim Reid, Chief HR Officer, Rogers Communications
