-- From former Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ effective keynote presentations at the annual Worldwide Developer’s Conference, to shrewd salesmen attending meetings, one of the most essential assets to a business could very well be a team of excellent communicators.
One particular business that happens to be thriving due to the current demand for communication skills is narrowDoor consulting (http://www.narrowdoor.org);
a consulting firm that has reportedly drawn 28% more in profits this fiscal year compared to every year prior. We have had the chance to sit down with managing director Marc O’Connor and gather some insights into this currently lucrative industry.
“Everybody wants to be a good communicator;
every business wants to boost their sales and efficiency. It’s a good industry to be in at the moment. That’s why we chose it.” - says O’Connor – “What we do is simple, really: we hire qualified individuals to use their minted, perfected skills to help and serve others in need so that in the end, everybody wins.”
With an online business model, narrowDoor has in fact removed borders from the world of consulting. With clients in Australia, the United Kingdom, Dubai, and Canada, the consulting firm seeks to serve businesses in every nation across the globe, irrespective of geographical location; just as they have been doing since the firm was incorporated.
Though the demand appears to be ever-increasing with more and more businesses requiring sharpened presentational and communication skills, skeptics are certain that this is not the case; insisting that the key to success is the utilization of the right technology, the right amount of luck, and employing the right management. In this case however, the proof is in the pie chart.
