Interview with Roger Harrop

Keynote speaker and business advisor, Roger Harrop, delivers unique answers and insight into business growth and his experiences as a keynote speaker. Read on below.

What is the message you hope people take away from your presentations?

That business is simple and growing your business is not difficult if you “Get in the Helicopter”

 

Do you have a favorite experience from your speaking career?

How do you prepare for speaking engagements?

Left brain: I have a detailed check list for every event and I do voice exercises just before the event Right Brain: I smile a lot and look to enjoy every moment!

 

How can businesses achieve growth in a time of economic crisis?

There’s a basic rule of business – sell to people who have money. If your traditional customers don’t have any money don’t try and sell to them. Unless you have greater than 80% market share there is always headroom to grow – even in a recession

 

How much does humor factor into your keynotes and other speaking engagements?

Very important – not telling jokes, necessarily,  but being self deprecating and making people smile – and relax

 

What is the significance of the helicopter?
