Blah Blah Blah Marketing

4:45 to 6:00 pm

Terri Langhans

To the people who hire us, book us or buy from us, we can seem to look alike, sound alike, provide the same service or sell the same stuff. Leadership is leadership. Consultants are a dime a dozen. “Blah, blah, blah. Just tell me how much you charge.” Ouch.

Not any more! Terri Langhans packs her session with creative ideas, powerful insights from the front lines, plenty of laughs, and tangible tools you can use right away (and over and over) to be less ordinary and more effective when it comes to marketing your practice, book and speaking engagements.

Terri will zero in on these important How To’s:

—Distinguish your business, product and services in the marketplace and from the competition.

—Find your points of difference, no matter how much you look like “the other guy.”

—Craft any message to have more impact and trigger the response, reaction or result you’re looking for.

You will walk away both energized and equipped with what you need to know and what you need to do to stand out, sell more products and services, and never be “blah” again.
