“Business Person Of The Year” – East of England Business Champions Award Winner Dee Clayton, specialises in enabling business professionals to communicate with impact and tackle their public speaking fears so they can convey their message clearly, in a way which makes audiences everywhere want to engage and ultimately take action.
Dee’s passion for commercial communications was recognised upon graduating with a 2:1 in Business and Marketing when she was awarded The Cooperative Prize for Best Marketing Student. She holds a Diploma of Industrial Studies and a Chartered Institute of Marketing Post Graduate Diploma in Marketing.
Prior to setting up Simply Amazing Training Ltd and Dee Clayton Ltd, Dee worked on a wide range of products in different company settings. Her experience took her from Jacob’s Creek to Jammie Dodgers, Bernard Matthews to Boddingtons and Marigolds to Murphy’s developing expertise across many communication tools including TV advertising, international event sponsorship and conferences. With over 19 years of management experience her background ensures clear advice and guidance is given on real life situations and covers approach, content, strategy and techniques.
Dee is author of the book “Taming Your Public Speaking Monkeys – Building Confidence For Public Speaking And Presentations” which outlines her unique, innovative and effective approach. In her exploration of audience dynamics Dee does the odd stand-up comedy gig for charity, which in addition to enabling her to test her own fear monkey techniques, has helped her bring humour and fun to the learning environment.
Dee has won 7 business awards in total for her innovative and effective training approach. She is passionate about training that makes a difference and hopes the awards help demonstrate to those who are wary that training with Dee really works. One of the reasons for such great results is the use of NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming. It may sound odd but don’t let that get in the way of seeing how effective it is. Dee developed a passion for NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) known as the “study of success” and uses this to help people learn more quickly, at deeper levels and change how they perceive their public speaking fears.
She is a Certified Trainer of NLP (meaning she can certify Practitioners and Master Practitioners) and a Trainer Member of ANLP International (Association of NLP). She is also honoured to be the Marketing Director for ANLP CIC International.
She has had a wide variety of speaking engagements – including being interviewed on the ITV News at Ten, Conference Speaker at the Association Of Bid & Proposal Management Professionals, and co-trainer at India’s first ever NLP accredited training in Mumbai.
