Program Descriptions

Solving Your Presence Problem
Build Your Personal Brand, Establish Trust, and Gain Lasting Influence
Whether your audience members want to move a team to action or elevate their own careers, they need presence. But what is presence?
Your audience will discover how to:
-Lead others to seek their presence, trust them, and willingly follow their lead
-Override presence-killers such as egotism, anxiety, long-windedness, and social façades
-Be—and be recognized as—the real deal, thereby boosting their leadership capabilities

This keynote is based on Connie’s best seller, Become the Real Deal.

Talk Less, Say More
3 Habits to Influence Others and Make Things Happen
Is your audience having trouble getting their points across in today’s demanding, distracted, impatient world?
Your audience will discover how to:
-Connect with what others value in order to capture their attention
-Convey information with portion control so they don’t confuse others
-Convince anyone to reach an ideal outcome and feel good about it

This program is based on Connie’s best seller, Talk Less, Say More.

Present to Win
Develop and Deliver Ideas that Influence
This keynote zeroes in on the only metric of presenting that matters: how to influence positive decision making.
Your audience will discover how to:
-Reverse-engineer messages to influence even the most distracted people
-Use portion control to fight influence-killing presentation bloat
-Present naked (It’s not what it sounds like, but it’s still fun.)

This program is adapted from Connie’s wildly successful Fortune 500 presentation model.
