Who knows better than a hostage negotiator, that words matter!! Come spend the afternoon with Neil Dunsmore and learn the power of words from someone who has experience making words matter.
When people ask, “What do you do?” or “What does your business do?”, they need a clear, brief, answer – but in such a way they want to learn more. Not a rambling dialogue full of detailed explanations and industry jargon.
Participants will learn (and practice!) tips on the best way to briefly introduce their business in a way that is clear, concise, and invites further discussion.
In this session you will learn:
• How to introduce your business
• How much information to share
• What to do to make your conversations about your business more enticing so people want to know more.
Neil Dunsmore has played many roles, including Former Correctional Officer & Hostage/Crisis Negotiator for 10 years in a Maximum Security Prison, a Professional Public Speaker, a Salesman, a Small Business Owner, and a Toastmasters Humorous Speech Contest winner.
Neil takes real life events and crafts them into humorous
presentations & speeches. He is not just educational and enlightening, but he is just plain funny.
Time Management is about clarity, direction, accomplishment and creating space for the things you want in life. In this session we discuss the tools necessary to find clarity of mind, make decisions and accomplish what needs to be done, all while refining your business into something enjoyable and profitable.
