A great speech has the

clarity of a picture book

Paul Hughes comes from a long tradition of Irish Storytellers. From this heritage he created a unique form of storytelling: Paul draws live as he speaks.

This form of live visual-storytelling engages audiences and is based on his belief that ‘a great speech has the clarity of a picture book’. By drawing live, a unique experience is created and the audience is captivated by the ‘reveal’ of his content – the viewer keeps asking ‘what happens next’ as Paul moves through his speech. Additionally, drawing live enhances comprehension – by revealing concepts one-at-a-time the viewer is taken step-by-step through the content.

Paul focuses on three things:
1. Results, 2. Results, & 3. Results.

There are many topics that Paul speaks about however all of them are focused on helping you get better results. He often says the three most important things in business are 1. Results, 2. Results, &3. Results. Whatever you do you will be more successful by getting more results.

Paul believes the path to getting better results in Growth. However, while there is much talk about growth, there is little talk about the types and styles of growth that are needed. Growth is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Growth needs to be tailor-made. There are types and styles of growth. Types of growth are universal, styles of growth are always unique. When you know the type of growth you need and the style of growth you have, you will multiply results.

The topics Paul talks about then are all about Results-Driven Growth.
