What to Do When “Great” Isn’t Good Enough to Grow Your Business
Based upon Scott’s upcoming book “Create Distinction” (expanded and revised release of bestselling book, “Collapse of Distinction” — named by thirty major newspapers as one of the “Ten Best Business Books” of the year), Scott reveals why it is so difficult for customers to distinguish one competitor from another; then, he outlines the specific steps organizations and professionals must take to truly create distinction and establish superiority in a competitive marketplace.

ALL Business is Show Business
Over a decade ago, Scott wrote in his first book of a concept he had already been pioneering to organizations since the mid-1980′s: The model of “show business” — of creating compelling emotional connections with the audience — was one ALL organizations should consider.
