It does baffle me that companies are prepared to spend money on speakers and facilitators for them to spout generic content on ‘trendy’ topics. Don’t get me wrong, as a speaker I will take the fee but it does get me to thinking….
…It’s coming closer to sales kick-off time for many companies and I am all for the big, start-of-year motivational shindig. Great excuse to get the hearts and minds of the sales force amped and ready for another year of growth.
So if you are the throws of planning your kick off, consider the impact of using this time to bring in an external speaker who can not only get the sales folks entertained but who can imbed some lasting impact.
I ‘kicked off’ a few companies this year; and it was thoroughly good fun but we, the clients and I, worked hard to ensure that the content was not a regurgitation easily found on the internet but it was aligned to a clear set of sales and business objectives.
Did it take more time and effort to prepare? Of course. But the result was better too.
I see too much ‘input orientated’ speeches at conferences and events. I wonder whether ‘output orientated’ presentations would deliver far greater value.
Actually I don’t wonder, I know what the answer is already!
So here is the shameless plug: As a dextrous public speaker, my audiences are guaranteed to be entertained and enlightened. Highly motivational, at times confronting and habitually humorous – its a surefire injection of sales mastery, contagious energy and business smarts at your next event…
…there, I said it…!
