Looking for something different?
Based on Victoria’s Wall Street Journal bestselling book, Risk Forward, this keynote is like no other.
We are living in an era when conditions are in constant flux, people are experiencing internal angst, and uncertainty prevails. Change is increasing at unprecedented levels. Victoria’s counterintuitive approach to all this is riveting, surprising, and effective.
The key to success is not in how quickly we can lock in fixed plans, but rather the opposite: how we can embrace the unknown, approach our business as an art, find the courage and confidence to express our unique talents, and achieve remarkable results.
As distractions and information overload increase to unprecedented levels, and as people’s attention span drops dramatically, how can you deliver your message in a way that truly lands? Whether your interactions are live or via video, with your team, clients, customers or prospects…the stakes are high. It’s hard to get people’s attention and when you do, you can’t afford to blow it.
You can’t just deliver information. You must create an experience.
Today’s world is indeed “crazy busy nuts.” People seem to be busier than ever before…while working under challenging conditions. How can you help people stay connected to what really matters? How do you keep people engaged? How can you make sure your interactions are meaningful? In this keynote, Victoria will show you how to stay focused and move through the chaos effectively and with grace.
