Steve Dawson will share the single biggest and most common problem he’s encountered as an executive coach in a business presentation. PowerPoint is a fine piece of technology, with infinite possibilities, but it’s being misused. The result is audiences who fail to absorb the key takeaways in what otherwise might be fascinating presentations. 

Steve will explain why PowerPoint is being abused to the point of detraction and distraction. He’ll then show you how to get the most out of this wonderful software.

We live in an age of unprecedented consumer choice when it comes to content consumption. As a result, the interruption-based model of reaching customers is no longer sufficient as digital-savvy consumers adopt subscription-based, ad-free content platforms and install ad-blockers on their devices. Brands must instead learn how to build and nurture loyal audiences of their own and create content of genuine value.

Workshop

 

Split Auditorium - Level 21: MPR 02

 

Details

In this session, I will focus on how Social Selling can drive loyalty, specifically for CRM and membership programs. From both a B2B and a B2C angle I will present cases that clarify successful engagement and loyalty building strategies. This will include examples from Hilton, DHL, and Volkswagen. The cases will be used to explain how one can leverage internal resources and create crowdsourced loyalty.

I will then zoom in on how a well defined LinkedIn Social Selling strategy provides very compelling options to build loyalty in often unexpected ways, even for companies that have primarily a B2C focus.

The session will be interactive through the use of online tools.
