September 20 – Get Your Brag On!


If you can’t sell yourself, you can’t sell your product or service, or win the award.

  • Do you want to win the sale or award nomination?
  • Do you want to build immediate credibility in network and sales meetings?
  • Do you want to win contracts and keep customers from straying?

It’s time for you to get your brag on. Many people don’t like to brag. We’ve been taught since we were kids that it’s wrong, egotistical and no one cares. Another myth is that if you are a good person and do good deeds, others will naturally talk about you in a positive manner!

The truth?  If you can’t sell yourself, you can’t sell your product or service, or win the award!

The other truth? No one will do it for you!      

Presentation Main Take Always:         

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Create and share “brag factors”
  • Elicit immediate credibility during sales presentations and keynote/workshop presentations
  • Win contract negotiations and awards
  • Keep customers from straying
