Event Presentations

I’ve been told that even when I’m speaking before a large group, audience members feel that I’m talking to them personally, 1 to 1. That’s my goal.

Public presentations are a growing part of my business. I am available for group training and seminars, keynote addresses, and other speaking engagements. Select from these topics, or we can customize one for your group:

Networking Made Simple
Do you dread networking? Find it about as appealing as a root canal? Let me help boost your confidence and comfort level in the art and science of networking. We’ll cover how to:

  • Define your target market
  • Decide which networking venues are right for you and your business
  • Craft a dynamic elevator speech
  • Set networking goals
  • Develop a networking action plan and
  • Arrange an introduction to almost anyone (hint: it’s easier than you think)

How to Develop and Deliver an Effective Elevator Speech
A must for everybody who hates “pitching” themselves to others. We’ll explore in-depth the elements of a great elevator speech, and how to package them into 60 seconds or less. We’ll also cover techniques for introducing your elevator speech into even casual conversation – the hallmark of a master networker.

Strategic Partners: Why and How to Cultivate Them
Which would you prefer: To search out clients one at a time, or have a steady stream of prospects knocking on your door? A no-brainer, right? Then you need to learn how to identify and nurture relationships with a handful of strategic partners –people with skills or products that complement yours and who will refer business to you. Chances are, your successful competitors already have some in place. In this workshop (?) (or seminar?), we’ll look at some of the categories of key strategic partners to consider. We’ll go through a series of exercises designed to help you to think outside the box and define the “perfect” strategic partners for your business – partners your competition may not even be aware of.

Demystifying Social Media
Are any of these familiar? You know you need to use social media, but don’t know where to start. Twitter intimidates you. You have no clue what Google+ even is.
Well, you’ve come to the right training. By the time we’re done, you’ll have a working understanding of

  • The major social media channels used in business
  • How each channel is best used
  • Which channel(s) might be right for you and your business

Along the way, we’ll define some of the terminology (hashtag?) that makes social media so mysterious to the uninitiated.

The ROI of Social Media
Here’s a question I hear all the time: “How do you measure the Return on Investment on social media?” The truth is, most businesses can’t and don’t measure it. Why? Because when they created their social media strategy (if they even have one), they didn’t include tracking qualified prospects and sales.

Don’t make the same mistake with your own social media efforts. In this seminar we’ll cover

  • How to set clear social media goals
  • Why platform selection is critical to measuring ROI
  • How to create a strategy to track leads and turn them into qualified prospects and sales
