This makes me uneasy. Reminds me of those creepy tele-evangelists. What do you think?
I’m actually writing this in a hotel near Istanbul Airport called the Gonen, going through my emails.
Compared to the ghastly places near Heathrow or JFK it’s very good value. I recommend it.
One email is headed: Drayton, are you a Christian Business Owner?
The answer is, I do the best I can to be a decent human being, one way or another. Then the copy went on
The reason I ask is because I want to work with Christians! God has blessed me with the ability to teach people how to speak authentically and attract more clients, double their revenue and get their message out to the world…..and make a HUGE impact.
So if you are a Christian business owner, I would like to invite you to my BRAND NEW workshop called Speak Up, Get Clients on February 21 in Los Angeles.
There is then a very good series of promises, ending with:
I hope you come as I would be super excited to see you there with my many other Christian business owners and entrepreneurs. Until then…
God Bless you.

Besides the religious qualification one thing that doesn’t compute is the mathematics.
The event costs $47 but you can bring a friend free… “a $597 value”. So my pal gets about 14 times times more out of it. Seems a bit unfair.
I have had speaking training from three people.
The first was too late – after I had started out on my career as a motor mouth, a good 35 years ago.
All I remember is being told to make sure I always end on time. The second was about 25 years ago. Ogilvy and Mather hired this lady who had trained two U.S. presidents.
She watched my efforts and said “You’re doing it all wrong. Don’t change a thing”.
The third was with a man called Andy Bounds. He has written two books, both very good.
I learned most from him, and I’m glad I caught him before he became really successful. He will be speaking at EADIM in October.
I shall interview him soon so you can see if it’s worth coming. If enough of you are interested I will arrange a full day with him and myself.
I have a presentation I used to do at Ogilvy and Mather which helped win a lot of business. Maybe it will work for you.
I am sure he will, because I recommended him to the firm I most admire and they raved about him.
