Forget what your business card says. You’re an entrepreneur
Live in verbsPassion is the ultimate way to add value to your clients
If you’re not eliciting a negative response from someone, you’re probably not fascinating to anyone

Why are you captivated by some people, but not others? How do certain leaders convince you to change your opinion? Advertising icon Sally Hogshead has the answers. In her acclaimed book, FASCINATE, Hogshead brings a strategic marketing approach to the art of influence. Often compared to the work of Malcolm Gladwell and Seth Godin, Hogshead’s research weaves together neurology, economics, history, biology, and pop culture.

Sally’s energetic style and research-based content instantly command an audience’s attention. She’s best suited for main stage keynotes, and other events that demand a speaker with authority, power, and passion. A few of her most popular topics include:

Professional Development, Sales, and Leadership
HOW TO FASCINATE: From First Impressions to Lasting Value 

We live in a distracted world. The average attention span is just 9 seconds. Yet if we only have 9 seconds to communicate value, how do we break through? To stop the distraction, and engage a listener, we must create moments of intense focus.

Yet when we do break through-when we use our personality advantages to connect and communicate-the results are extraordinary.

Sally Hogshead teaches audiences how to communicate and add value in the first 9 seconds. Participants learn how to fascinate, to become more memorable and valued.

When companies learn how to fascinate, their products become more desirable, their customers turn into advocates, and their best employees never want to leave.

Sally explores the science of personal branding, based her original research of 100,000 people. Audiences will learn how to:
» Identify their personality’s top advantage
» Make stronger first impressions
» More quickly earn respect and trust
» Increase value among co-workers

This is a powerful, funny, high-energy presentation, filled with interaction. Each participant discovers his own unique advantage to be heard and remembered.

Marketing and Business Trends
CAPTIVATE YOUR CUSTOMER: How Fascinating Companies Win the Moment

When you fascinate your customers, they’re more likely to remember you, buy from you, and rave about you. Yet in today’s distracted and competitive environment, most messages are either forgotten or ignored.

In a competitive market, the most fascinating option always wins. How will your participants compete, and win?

Sally’s research uncovers new trends in how the brain establishes patterns of loyalty and respect. For example, she discovered that by applying certain hardwired triggers, a fascinating brand can charge up to four times more than its competitors.

Taking audiences on a high-velocity journey through neurology, economic, and pop culture, Sally handpicks case studies and shares custom audience analysis. Participants will be buzzing long after the keynote ends, inspired by new ideas to transform their business.

Optional interactive exercise (for keynote 60 minutes or more):
THE 9-SECOND FASCINATION STATEMENT: How to Introduce Yourself with Value

Sally Hogshead estimates that roughly 90% of introductions fail to engage a conversation, let alone a relationship. In fact most of the time, when we introduce ourselves to a prospective client or contact, we’re actually damaging our personal brand.

Why? Because too few people realize how to immediately communicate their value.

In this innovative and interactive session, Sally will teach each person in your audience how to highlight his or her own personality advantage. A recent pilot study for Unilever demonstrated that after the study, participants were 34% more confident in their introduction.

By the end of this session, every participant in the room will have created their own 9-seond “elevator pitch” to earn respect and interest. Participants learn how to identify their unique advantages, and articulate this more clearly in all areas of their professional brand.

JOE PULIZZI FOUNDER OF CONTENT MARKETING WORLD

“I had well over 100 people come up to me and thanked me for bringing in Sally as the opening keynote for Content Marketing World. She set the bar high indeed. She is a true inspiration to me, as well as my team.”

VATCHE KEVERIAN CEO, JWT GULF

"Sally's reputation stretches around the globe. Yet when she came to Dubai and taught my company how to create more fascinating ideas, she exceeded everyone's expectations. Sally has universal relevance.”

HEATHER GRIFFIN EVENT PLANNER, HOW DESIGN

“Five years after Sally's first keynote to our group of 4,000 creative professionals, people were still talking about her speech as 'lifechanging.' We brought Sally back in 2011, and from the response I'm getting, I expect that people will still be talking about her speech five years from now!”

JEFFREY GITOMER BEST-SELLING AUTHOR, SALES BIBLE AND LITTLE RED BOOK OF SELLING

“Her information is concise, her communication is direct, her humor is off the charts, and her ability to connect with the audience is 110%. Hire Sally Hogshead NOW.”

How to know if your job is energizing (or just draining you)
Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Let’s be honest. You dread certain tasks. Really dread them. You might even wake up in the morning and experience a sinking “uuuugh” feeling when you remember it.

Here’s the kicker: not only do you dislike this type of task, and feel exhausted just thinking about it, but it can also damage your reputation.
