Grapes as eyeballs? Coach, author and speaker, Laurie Guest explains to host Joan how to interject stories, images and humor into your conversations and presentations to engage and influence your audience. That can be a lunch meeting for two, an internal meeting of five, or a conference with hundreds.
Live from the National Speakers Association annual conference on “Influence,” Guest also talks about the third rail of business: the struggle to set one’s fees and how to set expectations for services delivery. Except for selling widgets, much of what we do every day in business is intangible. How do you know when you’ve had an impact and met your client’s “deliverable”? Listen to Guest address this very candidly.
All of us can build more successful relationships by using images and stories – and setting expectations that are clear to all sides – so listen now and “up your game” today.
