This session will provide insight, best practices, and tips to ensure that you choose the right speaker for your organization. Selecting the right "keynote" speaker that is in alignment with your organization reinforces your message and will help your organization achieve its goals. The right speaker will resonate with your attendees and stakeholders, which is often no easy task, but with the right information and knowing what questions to ask, it can be positive and effortless. Hear Tim Mathy with Speak Inc. provide professional advice to ensure that from your first call to the speaker's bureau, to the moment your speaker leaves the building, your experience is positive and painless.

Ever wonder why you can’t seem to connect with certain people or why some interactions can be so frustrating? Do some people get under your skin while others you just connect instantly with? Do you ever wonder why you can’t seem to “sell” your ideas to certain people? Yes? Then join Sarah for this enlightening, fun and highly interactive program designed to help you demystify the four communication styles so you can learn to connect with anyone, anywhere, anytime.

Participants will explore their strengths and weaknesses in communicating with and influencing others. Different approaches such as how we are driven to accomplish results, how we create buy-in for our ideas, and how our natural beliefs systems drive our style of interacting with and leading others will be exposed to provide a system for recognizing different styles and knowing how to adapt to meet the communication needs of others to make your work relationships work.
