Keynote: Feel Good, Look Good, For Life . . . As You Excel in Business!
We’re pulled in a million different directions every day . . . work demands, client needs and the ever-changing world of healthcare tug away at us and as a result we find ourselves feeling stuck. Stuck in a business rut . . . stuck with fatigue and excess weight . . . and so stressed we can’t sleep at night.
Life just doesn’t have to be this difficult. It’s time to power up and ignite healthy transformation!
During this keynote, Angela will quickly shift your perspective, help you break through barriers and powerfully participate in all areas of business and life. You’ll think differently than ever before and feel energized to achieve life-long health as you excel in your career.
In this session we will:
Uncover the secret to long-term health (it has nothing to do with guilt, restriction, or deprivation!)
Create healthy boundaries for higher productivity
Tap into the power of words
Manage the stress of any challenge before it manages you
Is Retail Draining You? Time to Renew! James Dion, Retail Strategist
Do you think you know what your customers really need, want and desire? Is that a great product that will change their life? A great price? Compassionate and professional service? If only it were that simple! Yes, they do need all of these things. In fact, you have been providing them all along. But something is still missing and that is why sales and profits are not what they used to be. Yes, healthcare policy changes, competition and other external factors play a part here. But that’s only half of the story and the solution must be found somewhere else. It is called: inspiration. Inspiration to change, to adapt, to dare to stand out, and to think of different ways of running your business. Because, only businesses that dare to change, to try different approaches and to be unique can thrive today and in the future.
With so much choice out there and sometimes less money in their pockets, consumers don’t like to feel that they’ve wasted their time, money or effort on anything that is not brilliant or worthwhile. Learn how to deliver the “brilliant and worthwhile” by:
Creating the right store environment and displays—carrying the right product at the right price (NOT the lowest) and in the right assortments.
Asking the customer the right questions and exceeding their many expectations.
Hiring the right team—training and motivating them; analyzing their performance and productivity measures; and developing plans to achieve their goals (and yours).
Deploying the right marketing tactics (including social) and finally availing yourself of the right technologies to gain operational efficiencies and deeper customer relationships.
Join us for an eye opening and inspiring journey into the new consumer’s expectations and how you can exceed them. Leave the session with at least 10 resolutions that will help guide you in your quest for customer relevance and better profits.
