In this motivational talk, Bristol-based marketing expert Bryony Thomas will share tools and techniques to help you move forward and make life-changing decisions.

You will gain ideas and frameworks to facilitate moments of purposeful pause and take you from initial awareness that a decision needs to be made, to complete commitment to change.

It works for any decision – to purchase a product, change a habit, support a cause or change the whole direction of your life.

Bryony is an energetic speaker who shows businesses and entrepreneurs how to take calm, confident, control of their business growth. Her speaking style is no-nonsense and direct. She doesn’t shy away from tough subjects, and makes highly effective use of memorable analogies to make her advice stick. Bryony has a real skill for adapting her content to suit the needs of her audience, both through thorough preparation, and by being extremely quick-witted and responsive to the audience in front of her.

Bryony Thomas is the author of Watertight Marketing (Panoma Press, £14.99). Billed by Start Your Business Magazine as “a must for small businesses.” It was described by one MD as “the entrepreneur’s essential marketing manual”. By another, as the “best business book I’ve ever read.”


“The Watertight Marketing team recently put our small not for profit company through the 13 Touchpoint Leaks. I wasn’t sure what to expect but the results were amazing.”


“Bryony made a powerful impact on my CEO group with her half day workshop on Watertight Marketing. The evaluation scores for her workshop were the best ever!”

Jo Richings is one of the most positive, enthusiastic and motivational people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. John Drysdale

I remember reading a quote “attitude is contagious; would I want to catch yours?”  Let me tell you that you would definitely want to catch Jo’s attitude. It doesn’t matter what has been happening in my life or business, I always leave my sessions with Jo fired up and with a definite can-do attitude and of course that then transfers into everything I do and produces fantastic results. I would highly recommend Jo to anybody. Susan Gallagher

Jo has provided coaching and support for almost a year and in that time has been amazing. Her attitude is second to none and her enthusiasm, energy and positive attitude are incredibly inspiring. It is impossible to end a session with Jo and not feel like you could do whatever you set your mind to. Nick Cork
