The flow of influence in a team that keeps everyone accountable to the strategic purpose and high-performance culture
Read the Whitepaper



If you want an epic start to the new year, don't start it with what everyone expects: yet another keynote speaker presenting a monologue...

Rather, give your group something they've never experienced before: a unique learning experience combining world-class teachings on influence for leaders with mind-blowing mentalist feats, that make the teachings totally tangible and practical.


Most kick-off events spike everyone's enthusiasm, but that momentum can quickly fade within a month or two unless people are provided practical tools that make a concrete difference to results right away.

That's why Gilan is such a popular speaker for kick-off events. He teaches highly practical frameworks for anyone to develop more positive influence with others, so they can build results and momentum throughout the entire year!


Gilan helps leaders develop influence, so they can grow their business's significance in a changing world.

Your business ultimately grows by holding significance in the lives of the people it employs, the markets it serves, and the causes it supports.

If you fail to gain and retain significance in a constantly-changing world, your company risks being disrupted, replaced, or simply ceasing to matter over time.

Gilan's keynotes, masterclasses and courses help you leverage the Significant Influence Model™ (SIM), which helps you and your business establish significance by growing your influence in three specific areas.
