The journey is often better than the destination

As a speaker my passion is to bring something new into every talk.  Before each talk I tend to immerse myself in researching the topic.  At conferences, I’ve been known to be working on my presentation hours before the scheduled talk (ok sometime minutes).  This is critical.  The last 5% I add to my presentation fuses a current theme or event into the flow.   If you are looking for a well researched, deep dive into technology, business process, sales or recruiting or a fusion therein, I’m your guy.

I update and customize my most popular presentations regularly and will work with you to customize the message for your event. Select any of the presentations below as a starting point, or challenge me with a fresh topic.

How to Overcome your Data Quality Superstitions

Are you fearful that trying to fix your company’s data quality issues will result in 7 years of bad luck?  Too often, data quality superstitions lead to paralysis by analysis. You don’t need a rabbit’s foot to make progress with your data management strategy, you just have to separate fact from fable.

Voicemail as a Science

If 8 out of 10 sales calls go into voicemail… you better be damn good at leaving voicemail messages! Most people think they are good. How do you know…have you measured it?

Voicemail is a critical tool in sales communication. You can’t avoid it and you can’t afford to be bad at it.

The Art of the Elevator Pitch

When that first question, the top question every prospects asks, “So what do you do exactly?” is actually asked, how great is the impression you make? How about your team?

Based upon the analysis of literally hundreds of videotaped pitches from tradeshows and recorded telephone pitches Broadlook founder Donato Diorio developed a scientific breakdown of a great elevator pitch and a grading system that will provide you and your team a scale to document a baseline of your elevator pitch skills and measure improvement over time.

The Near and Far Future of Recruitment

By now you know, the days of being able to avoid new technologies have come to an end. Recruiters either have to evolve their process to meet ever increasing expectations from clients or face extinction. The pace of innovation has been outstanding, and to be competitive recruiters must stay on top of new trends in technology including mastering the social web, maximizing the power of mobile recruiting, and knowing what is on the technology horizon in order to stay ahead of competition.

Technology, done right, allows recruiters to assert more influence, be more connected and spend more time focusing on relationships. Connectivity, Influence and Relationship are foundations of recruitment.

You’ve Got the Candidate’s Name (Don’t Screw it Up)

Critical first impressions can further or ruin the recruitment process. So, how does your initial outreach stack up? Who is assigned to do it? And how do you measure your success?

Every day time and money is spent on name sourcing yet little to no attention is spent planning, measuring and coaching the crafting of the first impression.

The Job Order Zone

Are you in the zone? The “Job Order Zone” is that rare place that you reach when everything seems easy. Remember that amazing feeling of simply being on top of your game?

Many factors contribute, but one thing is definite. When you are in the zone, prospective clients say YES. Getting in the zone is not a random occurrence.
