Most people can’t get the correct WI-FI code to ENGAGE their audience which makes them appear PETRIFIED, ARROGANT, DISTANT, TALKING TOO FAST (or too softly), BORING, SELF-OBSESSED, UNFOCUSED or completely UNINTELLIGIBLE.
When you only get one chance to make a good impression, a wrong one could cost you everything.
Luckily, this doesn’t have to happen when you work with Dave.
Enjoy the benefits of being able to pitch your business to anyone, earning as a speaker, recognised as a thought leader, respected by your peers, inspiring employees and head-hunted by everyone from event organisers to agencies. Imagine being able to stand up without any notice, in front of strangers, tired, stressed, under extreme pressure to deliver a world-class informative, inspiring and game changing presentation WITHOUT a script that always motivates everyone who hears it to take action immediately.
Google yourself. If nothing shows up about you, then you’re experiencing the same negative effect that fresh talent, potential clients, JV brokers, media interviewers, overseas investors, employees AND head-hunters also feel. When you’re not on radars, nobody can align with your values, your triumphs, your thoughts or your vision.
Guess what? They flock to your most visible competitors instead.
This should worry even the best decision makers, luckily, you can fix it today.
The Industry Icon Program elevates and positions you to cast a halo effect over your products and services like pioneering thought leaders Tim Cook, Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson or Elon Musk. When your name carries credibility, your stock rises, and your company easily punches above its own weight as the spotlight focuses on your expert leadership.
You become currency.
It’s so easy for clients to lose interest, get distracted and drift off in front of you.
However, by talking WITH them, they join you on your journey and want to stay with you forever.
You’ve been there too, haven’t you?
Effective storytelling drives sales and marketing and turns complete strangers into supporters who like, trust and want to work with you.
When you can communicate this way in sales meetings, podcasts, Zoom calls, with employees and on conference stages, the results are priceless. We love when people allow us to feel a part of their adventure too. It becomes a very personal and mutual experience.
Do yours right and you’ll effectively go viral, inspire people to share it and refer you to their customers and clients too.
Stop waiting to be discovered. You’ve deserved recognition, medals and awards for far too long instead of being told ‘You’ve done well for a woman’ so now it’s time to change your strategy. Getting support from your business community can be impossible because too many men get intimidated, other women get personal and you worry that your age prevents top levels of success.
Actually, you are at exactly the right age to have the biggest impact on your life.
All you need to do is turbocharge your brand.
Forbes Magazine revealed 70% of CIOs want to be more, but worry because often they’re not trained on P&L strategies, revenue-producing functions, communication skills, cross-departmental initiatives, forging strong relationships, emotional intelligence, brand-building, persuasion, sales, marketing or developing leadership credibility among other C-suite executives and board members.
