Speech Topics

Get to the “YES!” Quicker

In this interactive presentation your finance professionals will:

  • Understand why after hearing their “Personal Brand WHY Story”, their ideal clients could be in a room full of their competitors and will still make a beeline for them!
  • Experience first-hand how telling their “Personal Brand WHY Story” will increase trust, connection, and likeability in 3 minutes or less.
  • Discover why humanizing themselves is critical to the future of their business.
  • Discover how top producers are using their stories to attract clients and get to the “YES!” quicker.
Stand Out and Own the Room Every Time You Speak!

In this presentation your team will:

  • Learn why many finance professionals aren’t satisfied with the results they get from speaking, and what they can do to increase buy-in and knock it out of the park every time they speak.
  • Discover the mistake almost every finance professional makes when they open a presentation. This mistake bores their audience and reduces their influence and impact.
  • Walk out with the key strategy for grabbing their audience from the first words out of their mouth. Let’s face it if they don’t know how to get peoples’ attention off their phones and onto them, their talk is toast. Master this one technique and they will know how exactly how to command the attention of any audience.
Storytelling to Skyrocket Sales!

In this interactive presentation your group of finance professionals will:

  • Learn the biggest “sales killing” mistake most finance professionals make and how to avoid it when they speak and meet with clients.

  • Hear stories of how successful finance professionals are incorporating stories into their group presentations and 1:1 meetings with clients and prospects.

  • Discover the 3 types of stories every finance professional should be telling.

  • Get Step by Step instructions on how to use the most persuasive storytelling model for a sales conversation (either in group presentations or in 1:1 conversations). This story type allows them to display empathy and sell themselves WITHOUT sounding salesy.
