Speech Topics

The leadership circle - Virtual

This is the real breakthrough. It’s a 90-minute session for up to 250 people. Seth gives a recorded four-minute prompt, then the group is digitally put into groups of four or five people. Run in real time by a trained coach, it happens instantly, at the touch of a button. The mini-groups engage around the prompt, and then, 9 minutes later, they magically rejoin the larger group. This process is repeated several times over 90 minutes. Everyone is seen, everyone is heard, everyone is connected. We’ve pioneered this approach, and proven that it works… it’s an extraordinary shift in energy and connection. We bring our own software and moderator to run it each time.

A live roundtable - Virtual

This is a useful way to engage with 20 to 30 people. Each person is on Zoom, along with Seth. Seth does a live 10-minute firestarter chat, and then we open the floor to questions. The questions come in via chat, Seth calls on people and the conversation moves quickly. The event is recorded for people who are unable to attend. Each time you run this, Seth is live, so you have less flexibility in timing.

A private broadcast of an intimate talk from Seth - Virtual

This is the one with the most flexibility in timing and tech, and the least interactivity. On a given topic, Seth will professionally record a talk of a given length and you can put it behind a password on Vimeo or somewhere else. Invite clients or prospects the opportunity to watch this video that others can’t see. You have the exclusive right to use it as often as you like for 8 weeks. It’s not an endorsement, it’s simply a talk on a given topic, with your logo and intro.

Ideally, it will include 10 or 15 minutes of opening remarks, and then focused Q & A around questions previously submitted by attendees.
