Connie’s Keynote Session Summaries:

Solving Your Presence Problem

How to Build Your Personal Brand, Establish Trust and Gain Lasting Influence

Whether your audience members want to move a team to action or elevate their own careers, they need presence. But what is presence? Now more than ever, people are quick to judge, resist and dismiss. During this highly interactive keynote, Connie pinpoints the three most crucial presence problems that undermine person power – and guides each person to identify and solve their issues to transform into the powerfully influential leader they're meant to be.

Your audience will discover how to:

• Lead others to seek their presence, trust them, and willingly follow their lead.

• Override presence-killers such as egotism, anxiety, long-windedness and social façades

• Be – and be recognized as – the real deal, thereby boosting their leadership capabilities

This keynote is based on Connie's newest bestseller, Become the Real Deal

Talk Less, Say More

Three Habits to Influence Others and Make Things Happen

Is your audience frustrated by distracted, impatient people tuning them out? Are they having trouble getting their points across in today’s time-pressed, noisy world? In this keynote, they’ll learn how to elevate their relationships forever. They’ll walk away ready to implement three powerful habits that will transform the true metric of influence – the way others respond to them. And it will never be more positive after this program.

Your audience will discover how to:

• Connect with what others want and values to capture their attention

• Convey information with portion control so they don’t confuse others

• Convince anyone to reach an ideal outcome and feel good about it.

This program is based on Connie's bestseller, Talk Less, Say More

Present To Win

Develop & Deliver Ideas that Influence

Your audience will never approach or deliver a presentation the same way after experiencing this program. This keynote hones in on the outcome of presenting: how to influence positive decision-making. From this point forward, your attendees will place their own audiences at the center of everything they do. Connie models her strategies from the stage, so your audience gets a double dip as they discover her wildly successful approach that Fortune 100 teams have adopted as their winning presentation model.

Your audience will discover how to:

• Reverse-engineer messages to influence even the most demanding people

• Simplify to amplify to fight presentation bloat

• Present naked. (It's not what it sounds like, but it's wildly fun.)

This program is adapted from Connie's executive coaching program.
