Attract, Keep and Engage More Customers More Often
No really… why you?
Why should your perfect customers do business with you?
Every day our clients are looking for new and better reasons to do or continue to do business with us.
If we can’t provide them with those reasons; if we aren’t clear on how to create, demonstrate and deliver more value to more clients more often than our competition, those customers WILL go elsewhere.
In fact, for some of you, maybe they already have.
In this dynamic, thought provoking and content rich session Toni will challenge you to dare 2b different; to defy the status quo; to re-think and re-imagine every aspect of how you do what you do – all while providing you with the strategically innovative tools and techniques that have helped both Toni and her clients differentiate themselves from their competition and drive significant growth in their businesses.
How great Leaders turn Inspiration into Innovation and Ideas into Results
Innovate 2 Differentiate!
If you are a business leader, chances are that you already buy into the importance of innovation as a differentiator in the today’s fiercely competitive and infuriatingly commoditized marketplace.
But here’s the challenge.
Although encouraging your team to ‘share more ideas’ sounds easy enough, it turns out that understanding how to create and sustain a culture that will actually spark more ideas from more people more often so that you can get more of the results that you want is more easily said than done.
All great innovative organizations have visionary leaders (that would be you) who are committed to driving innovation from the top down.
The Everyday Innovators™ keynote is designed to guide those leaders through the essential criteria for creating a culture that not only sparks innovation but that ensures sustainability in the long term.
Because a missed idea is a missed opportunity to make a difference
Everywhere you look, really wonderful people are being asked to do really important things with so much less than they had before.
The harsh reality is that the way things used to be done has left the building and it’s not coming back anytime soon.
But faced with so much change, how do we continue to deliver value to those we serve? Is it possible to be different in ways that actually make a difference?
Toni’s signature Why? Why Not! keynote has been delivered to thousands of participants all over the world who to this day still use Why Not! as the rallying cry for change and innovation within their own organizations. Fast-paced, entertaining, thought provoking and highly relevant to today’s challenging workplace reality, this session is about thinking outside the box when you don’t know what the box will look like tomorrow.
“What separates good speakers from great ones is their ability to give of themselves to an audience. To weave their message with passion and empathy and I have never witnessed a speaker who has done it more eloquently. My dedicated group of CEO’s is not easily impressed however the consistent messaging in your presentation –showcased in a variety of ways – helped each member of the audience understand how to make it work for them.”
“Toni, I believe that the message and the content that you deliver is relevant and timely to business more today than ever! What you add to the message is an energy level that drives the point home and has the message live on well beyond the conference. You bring a real passion and excitement to your presentations and workshops, as both are filled with meaningful content. Rest assured that your message is living on and that is the real value of what you bring to any organization.”
“Toni has an extremely sharp mind and draws on extensive research, networking, and events to shape her knowledge and well thought-out approach to innovation. Toni has played a huge role within Abbott Canada, and has won the hearts and minds of many, as a trainer, an innovation catalyst, but most importantly, as an enchanting keynote speaker. She continues to surprise us and to exceed our high expectations.”
“We were thrilled with the passion and energy you brought to the group. Your innate sense of humor and style made the addressing of some sensitive issues a pleasure rather than a task! I can personally say that working with you was one of the most stimulating projects I have been involved with over my many years in retail.”
“I have planned many meetings, have worked with many speakers and I would have to say that you really are the most prepared speaker I have ever worked with. We are now able to focus our resources and “innovate” our way to greater success.”
“Toni was fantastic! The team really enjoyed her presentation. She was engaging, entertaining and informative. A few comments I heard from team members: “this was the first time a guest speaker received a standing ovation” and “in my 10 years of coming, this was the best speaker we’ve ever had.”
