Our Speaker's Forum service is a series of Talks presented by senior members of our team. Each Talk is on an important general business skill with real life examples used to drive home the salient points. Talks are conducted virtually and are suited for audiences of any size. Each Talk is roughly 1 hour in length including time at the end for questions. The Talks are designed to remind employees of best practice skills that they may have lost or forgotten over time. And, to bring those skills back to the front of their minds where they can begin to practice them again For new hires fresh out of school, the Talks can provide grounding in basic skills required for success.
Below are the current Talks, each with a brief description. Talks may be scheduled by selecting the chat button below to send an email to one of our associates. Each Talk includes an upfront call to discuss the your business so as to help make the Talk relevant to the issues your company is facing. Talks for groups of 2-10 are priced at $500/Talk. For groups greater than 10 a bespoke quote will be provided.
This Talk emphasizes the importance of developing and practicing good listening skills. It encourages participants to use both their ears and eyes to actively listen and engage with coworkers, clients, vendors, and other relevant parties.
In this Talk the idea of win/win negotiation is discussed. How with the right approach seemingly unavailable options can suddenly come available. It encourages participants to never fear asking for what they need or desire.
Here participants are walked through examples of being faced with the need to make a decision but having limited data, insight or direct experience. How trusting in ones gut can prove to be a valuable asset in making good decisions.
In this Talk the criticality of making decisions - moving - is discussed. Geared toward managers and executives who struggle with making decisions, this Talk emphasizes that not making a decision is a decision in itself and that is often the worse decision. Further, while slow and steady may win a race, not one ever won a race by standing still. You have to move.
