BBC Friday 10 August 2018 – Classic BBC Elevator Speech Workshop

This Friday BBC, we’ll go classic with an Elevator Speech [ES] workshop. What makes not just a good [ES], but an amazing [ES]? We’ll roundtable what constitutes a good [ES], what are the key elements to include in your [ES] — and conversely what should not be in your [ES]?

At BBC, we’ve often distinguished between a typical [ES], at 30 seconds tops, and an Extended Elevator Speech [eES], between one and two minutes (but no longer than that — heaven forbid!). The [eES] tends to flesh out that hook/tag line and vision statement that makes your [ES] shine, and it can also allow for a broader and more detailed development of your business’s products/services, typical clientele, and a little of your business philosophy. 

Workshop Goals: 1) Go around the table, hear each one’s [ES], then drawing from what you hear from each other, discuss the key elements of what goes into a really great [ES]. 2) As time permits, distinguish out what could go into a longer [eES], and how to avoid conflating the two — er, how to avoid spinning your [ES] into an [eES].

Special thanks to hosts Steve Kersten, bbc acting chair, and Bill Ruddick, bbc thinkologist, who will be graciously moderating and skillfully navigating this exciting classic BBC session. Beauty, eh [BE].

So invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space…and another delicious cup of BBC!

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise!

BBC Friday 15 June 2018 – Mastering Conversational Intelligence® w/ Johanna Munson

Join us this sunny spring BBC Friday for a fascinating  conversation on Conversational Intelligence®, with Johanna Munson, Skipping Stones CommunicationsHow you are perceived, how your conversation is received, determines what you can achieve. By engaging your conversational skills, you and your business can experience fresh pathways to success.

Mastering the art of conversation is how great leaders build trust, spearhead innovation, navigate challenges, and generate growth. Recent research from Dr. Judith E. Glaser, author and founder of Conversational Intelligence®, is considered to be a whole new kind of “smart talk,” one that opens up a wealth of opportunities. It’s different from both “Intellectual Intelligence” and “Emotional Intelligence,” because you’re expressing yourself in a universal language that’s accessible to anyone, in any situation.

Johanna will give a brief introduction to some of the central tenets of Conversational Intelligence® and then invite your incubation talents to shine! skippingstoneslifecoach.com. Johanna on linkedin.com.
