Stretching your Comfort Zone and Living Life in the Front-Row!

Too many people allow fear and negativity to keep them living and working somewhere in general admission, or even in the balcony of their lives. It's time to bust out of a comfort zone and live life in the front-row! Author and motivational speaker Marilyn Sherman has spent the last 20 years inspiring and motivating corporate, association, and government audiences to shift their mindsets from entitlement to gratitude. People walk away with tools to have a more positive attitude and set goals for greater achievement in their professional and personal lives. As an added bonus, she's hilarious!

Revenue Generation Made Simple

Revenue generation used to be the exclusive responsibility of the "sales and marketing team" in a company. Today, virtually every client-facing role is expected to have a direct and measurable impact on revenue generation and growth. Yet most companies and individuals lack clarity on marketing fundamentals. Without these fundamentals, finding prospects and converting them to customers can feel like wandering around a dark room full of sharp objects. In this session we'll flip the lights on and start the process of removing the sharp objects - while laying a foundation for generating competition-crushing marketing strategies.
3:10 - 3:35pm

TO BOLDLY GO: Stepping out from Ordinary to Extraordinary

Average, ordinary people accomplish extraordinary things all the time. Have you ever wondered what separates those who experience success versus those who constantly find themselves falling short? What a person sees, what they say, and what they show in their actions are all telling factors in their ability to take their professional and personal lives to the next level. TO BOLDLY GO is a program that dives right into the heart of a person's perceived reality, exposes the effects of negative self talk, and inspires both organizations and individuals to create momentum towards greatness; daring to achieve, accomplish, and boldly go where others around them have never gone before!
3:35 - 3:45pm Closing Remarks
