Testimonials from Libby & Dan at the Seattle Chamber

It’s always valuable to find out what your audience takes away from your presentation. Libby Wagner and I presented a program at the Seattle Chamber of Commerce titled, “Recession to Recovery: Entrepreneurial Strategies for Business Acceleration.” Here are a few of the comments and testimonials from those who were there:

“Shook me into realization I’ve gotten stale.”

“What was discussed is immediately usable and implementable.”

“There are many resources for help; this put some much needed creative wind in my sails.”

“Great information on building your network and prospect list and time management.”

“It affirmed some of the paradigm shifts I’ve been undergoing. Reinforced and encouraged me that I’m on the right track.”

“Good fresh ideas, especially for personal development.”

“Helped clarify and better understand some key strategies for growing business.”

“It helped identify gaps in my current operations that are keeping me from expanding.”

On behalf of Libby, we would like to thank all the participants and of course the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce. The chamber is an excellent way to get the professional development you need, as witnessed by these folks. If you’re not a member yet and you’re in the Greater Seattle area, why not?

Highlights from Seattle Chamber Event

Yesterday, my friend Libby Wagner and I presented a program to a terrific group of business professionals at the Greater Seattle Chamber Focus On series. Our topic was “From Recession to Recovery,” and we tackled issues related to leadership, personal growth, marketing, sales, branding, and life balance. After the meeting, several people came over to chat with us and I typically ask what they most valued from the program. Here are a few responses…

  • Have three personal and three professional priorities or goals each day. Focus on those and get them done first. Doing this will enhance how you manage your time and stress.
  • Ask for referrals early and often. This will keep your pipeline full.
  • Call three people each day – clients, prospects, referrals. Offer value, ask for referrals, see how they are doing, etc. By keeping in contact, you leverage your ability to increase opportunities.
  • Be “wholehearted” in your work. Be passionate and share that passion with others.
  • Building strong relationships is critical to success professionally and personally. Find a variety of ways to do this in your career and life.
  • Be specific in your language. In order to be an effective “influencer,” you must be clearly heard and understood.
  • Speak, publish, network, and use social media to get your message out to the masses. The more people who need what you do/sell/service/provide, the more opportunities to help them and you.
  • Now is the time to take risks, step out of the box, or reinvent yourself. Have courage and confidence in your abilities.

Many thanks to the Seattle Chamber of Commerce, out guests, and to Libby. It was an excellent day and we hopefully will be invited back to do it again!

    Dan Weedin at Safeco Field

    “And now batting cleanup…”

    In my dreams. I’d be better suited for cleaning up Safeco Field than hitting cleanup! However, I will be at the ball park this afternoon emceeing the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce After Hours. If you are in the greater Seattle-area, drop by Safeco Field at 5:30 for a fun evening of networking, prizes, and baseball.

    Hope to see you there.
