    Stop Thinking Like a Keynote Speaker (and Double Your Impact)

    Friday October 8,2021

    8:30am – 11:15am

    With Guest Expert

    Stephen Shapiro, CSP, CPAE

    Do you want to be more remembered? Make a bigger impact? Charge higher fees? If so, the key is to stop thinking like a keynote speaker. The number one business limiting factor is the traditional speaker one-and-done mindset.

    What happens after (and sometimes before) the presentation will determine the value your clients experience. And the more value you create… the more income you will get.

    During this session, you will learn:

    • A four-step process to use immediately with every client to increase your impact
    • The two Power Steps so you can further leverage your content.
    • How to create interactive tools for during and after your presentation so you can be remembered (for almost no cost!)
