INSPIRING. EMPOWERING.
ACTIONABLE. Real.

Speaking should be a performance where attendees leave inspired, motivated, and armed with their next actionable steps to better their personal and professional lives.  In my experience over the last decade, the way we learn, research and connect has completely changed, which means so should our marketing and branding efforts. I'm confident that I can speak to your attendees specific goals and frustrating pain points so that they leave with insights that can change the future of their personal and professional pursuits.

2019 KEYNOTE PRESENTATIONS

YOUR FOUNDATION Session Title:

Be the Guide, NOT the Hero of your Customer's Story

YOUR FOUNDATION Session Description:

BEST AUDIENCE: Marketing Professionals, Small Business Owners + Entrepreneurs, Franchises, Sales Organizations, Multi-Level Marketers

You've spent countless hours, not to mention significant marketing dollars, in an effort to create the perfect brand or execute the perfect marketing campaign. You've poured your heart, soul, and finances into your website, paid advertising efforts, marketing videos, or a perfectly curated instagram feed. So what's the problem?

It's not working.

Not to the extent it should be and definitely not matching the amount of effort you put into it. You know there is something missing or holding you back. In this session, you'll learn that it's in your company's and/or brand's positioning in the narrative of your customers story that unlocks your ability to truly stand out and become a modern success story.

After this session, you'll be able to:

  • Recast your company/brand in a way that connects more powerfully with consumers
  • Discover your customer's greatest desires, most frustrating paint points, and the philosophical why to their future success
  • Apply a simplified framework to clarify your company's message

YOUR FOUNDATION Session Title:

Unleashing the Power of Social Media to Stand Out

YOUR FOUNDATION Session Description:

BEST AUDIENCE: Marketing Professionals, Entrepreneurs, Franchise Conferences, Associations

Standing out in the digital world today is no easy task. In fact, it can often times feel like you're going to battle. That being said, my guess is you're battling the wrong enemy. Most of us blame the internet or competition for our lack of growth, but it's much more obvious than that. Look around...the noise is our greatest enemy. And not the noise from your competitors. It's the noise you're making trying to keep up, especially when it comes to social media.

After this session, you'll be able to:

  • Understand what Facebook and Instagram really have to do with your content strategy
  • Navigate both organic and paid social media efforts
  • Effectively stand out with a 3-part plan to connect with your ideal customer
