Do you have your own business, but don't know what to say to magnetically attract clients and contracts? Networking, but it's not going so well? Perhaps you have tried to craft an elevator pitch, but it feels forced and it even makes you uncomfortable! Or when you say what you do, the response is just lukewarm - perhaps you wish you could consistently get a response of "Oh, Wow! Let's work together!"

Whether at a formal networking event, or when doing a consultation for your services, being able to be both authentic and compelling is essential to making strong connections that directly lead to growing your business.

Unlike the standard formulaic methods, the “Anti-Pitch” is a relaxed and conversational way to speak about your work that both feels good and organically attracts your favorite clients.

Attendees can expect to:

Discover the 5 essential keys to Compelling Communication Learn up the 3 ingredients needed to speaking compellingly about your work Get powerful tips for effective nonverbal communication You’ll walk away knowing how to speak with power, presence, and a clear message that rings loud and clear with your ideal clients and customers.
