In today’s fiercely competitive business climate, how well you present yourself can make the difference in getting ahead or going home. When it comes to winning a new client, getting a project approved, or closing the deal, the smallest things can make the biggest difference. You don’t want to blend in you want to stand out! From shaking hands, exchanging business cards to storytelling these all have a powerful impression on how people perceive you. Most people underestimate the importance of these interactions and just get by. But by knowing a few simple secrets, you can turn that around.
That was the premise of our “Speak Up and Stand Out” public speaking workshop held last week. The sold out event was sponsored by the Phoenix Business Journal and held at the Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce.
Among the topics we covered were:
- Using your body language to influence and include
- Using storytelling in presentations to turn heads and win hearts
- Introducing yourself to make a great first impression
- Exchanging business cards so that you are remembered
If you missed the workshop, don’t worry — We’ll be adding new workshops soon!
