Texas Speakers Bureau – Marketing Speaker, Kelly McDonald on “What Blockchain Means for Marketers and Advertisers”

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

kelly-mcdonald1_headshotUnless you’ve been traveling in outer space, you have heard of cryptocurrency and blockchain. Stories about cryptocurrency and blockchain, the technology that foments digital currencies (or tokens), dominate the news as newly minted millionaires seem to get younger every story. However, they are two separate entities when it comes to future applications.

Certainly, cryptocurrency is disrupting the financial world in many ways. However, blockchain will massively impact how we do business, communicate and transact. Its capabilities reach beyond the financial sector and will change many industries, including law enforcement, healthcare, intellectual property rights to name a few. And soon marketing in new and profound ways.

Friday, June 15th, 2018

dianna-booher--headshotMost people have their mind made up about everything—politics, social issues, business decisions. Just ask them. Very few people will invite you to persuade them to do anything. So if you’re going to get someone to change their behavior, their actions, or their mind, you’ll need to do it intentionally. Consider these ten tips:

Dallas Texas Speakers Bureau – Leadership Speaker, DeDe Murcer Moffett on “Work-Life Balance Increases The Bottom Line”

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

As an entertaining leadership speaker and trainer, I’m passionate about bringing awareness to the importance of work-life balance for long term success. Leading edge companies aren’t afraid to remove the corporate thumb off employees heads and initiate a whole life culture.  They understand work-life balance increases overall well-being and that increases their bottom line!  In this article I will address what work-life balance is and why companies must implement it now.   So as M.C. Hammer sings lets “break it down”.

Businessdirectory.com defines work-life balance as a comfortable state of equilibrium achieved between an employee’s primary priorities of their employment positions and their private lifestyle.

The short version – Employers helping workers cope better with the competing demands of work and family.

Houston Speakers Bureau – Business Speaker, Garrison Wynn discussing How to be an extremely influential presenter: The high-impact presentation skills of top performers

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

Houston Texas Speakers Bureau presenter, Garrison Wynn, discusses How to be an extremely influential presenter: The high-impact presentation skills of top performers.

Whether you are a CEO, a professional motivational speaker, a corporate trainer, or a mom trying to get your teenager to pay attention (good luck with that), you need high-impact presentation skills. Your message, regardless of its content, needs the most effective delivery system it can get.

We’ve all suffered from boring, dry, sometimes annoying talks that contained good content … but not quite good enough to interrupt the thoughts of suicide that might mercifully shorten our exposure to a horrible speaker. Our research of more than 5,000 top performers showed that outstanding presentation skills were a key factor in their influence. We also noticed that people with superior presentation skills were more likely to get promoted even if they lacked other seemingly sought-after qualities. It seems that having value is not as valuable as explaining it well.

Austin Speakers Bureau – Business & Communication Speaker, Anne Pritchard Grady discussing The Four Letter Word That Equals Success

Monday, January 14th, 2013

Austin Texas Speakers Bureau presenter, Anne Pritchard Grady, discussing The Four Letter Word That Equals Success.

Four letter words have gotten a bad reputation.  I’m sure you can think of a handful of them right now.  There’s one four letter word, however, that equals communication, camaraderie, and results.  It has the capability to be extremely powerful, yet it often struggles to reach its full potential.  It often causes friction, friendship, and frustration, all at the same time.  What is this powerful four letter word?  TEAM.

You’ve probably seen or heard the acronym for T.E.A.M. (Together Everyone Achieves More).  Why then is it so hard to create effective, high performance teams?  Because teams are made up of individuals, and individuals are imperfect.

Dallas Speakers Bureau – Sales Strategist Speaker, Ann Ranson discusses Social Responsibility in the Workplace

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

Dallas Texas Speakers Bureau presenter, Ann Ranson, discusses Social Responsibility in the Workplace.

Much is being written today about social responsibility—but what exactly is it? Literally defined, it means that all people and organizations have a responsibility to society. And while many people think that it is all about the environment and going green, I describe social responsibility as being a part of the solution, rather than part of the problem.
