[POLL THREAD 1/9] Do you offer a GUARANTEE with your work? Do you give PROMISES on outcomes? Let me share a story where it worked out well...

As a speaker & trainer, I had been trying for years to teach at the Executive Education program at my MBA alma mater...

I finally got the attention of the Associate Dean and the program manager in a meeting.

I mentioned my credentials as a motivational speaker. I submitted that some of my best professors during my MBA were from industry and not always PhDs.

I admit it was an uphill battle to convince them.

I finally went for the PROMISE.

"What is the average score for your Exec Ed trainers?" for their official feedback mechanism

'81%' they said. This was based on scores out of 5.

I said "I can GUARANTEE you that I can exceed 90% feedback if you let me deliver one session from among my favourite topics"

That definitely got their attention...

'Which topics?'

At the time, my best ones were
'Authentic Networking',
'Powerful Presentations',
'Heart Leadership'

I decided to go for Powerful Presentations, since I was guaranteeing them I could deliver a great session.

The RESULT: I got 99.6% on the feedback forms.

14 people answered 16 questions will all perfect 5's except for one person on one question, for which they gave a 4.

Nobody's perfect eh?

Regardless, I got the job, and worked on contract with them for almost a decade.

Your PROMISE shows clients that you know your expertise and can deliver. It's a huge part of your personal brand and thought leadership.

Currently the GUARANTEES I offer include:
- You will land a TEDx talk
- You will land 3 paid speaking gigs
- You will increase your digital presence by 100,000 views
- Your audience will give glowing feedback well beyond your average

If you want to learn more, just DM me anytime.

What do you promise? Answer the POLL in the first tweet and share your thoughts.

ONTARIO ELECTION THREAD: I've never liked majority gov'ts. When 25% of the electorate vote 38% for a party who gets 100% control, geez that's frustrating. What’s even more disappointing is that so many are still voting to re-elect our current provincial gov't to a majority. 1/19
Why are so many NOT holding Doug Ford accountable for all the bungling, buffoonery and cruelty? In the past 4 years, they have failed to listen, failed to plan, and failed to care. There are so many reasons to vote them out. 2/19
1) PANDEMIC HANDLING The sad rollercoaster and flip-flop of acting too late, then not having enough support during lockdowns, then easing things too early, ignoring science and then going back into lockdowns. The province’s vaccine rollout was chaotic. 3/19
