When William Shakespeare wrote that “All the world’s a stage,” he was indirectly talking about branding! This informative keynote is like nothing else on the market. Sure, there are other speakers who may explain how to market and brand a product, but how many explain, step-by-step, how to brand yourself and to transfer that power into your job, company or product? Did you realize that you’re a brand? According to “The Shark,” you were branded beginning on the day you were born and have continued to be branded every second since! In this presentation, Daymond offers audiences deep insights into how one’s personal brand affects all aspects of one’s life. Attendees will learn not only the importance of branding, but Daymond will also reveal some of the tricks that have helped him to expand his own brand into dozens of countries around the globe. The techniques that he shares can be applied to personal branding as well as to the branding of products and concepts.
Corporations love employees with a strong sense of branding because it inspires out-of-the-box thinking, which creates an infectious energy that flows throughout the work environment. It’s no secret that the world has gotten smaller; Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and dozens of other social websites have increased the desire for people to be noticed as a brand. Let “The Shark,” Daymond John, show you how!
Negotiating Strategies for Women
Women: You have more power than you may think! Although Daymond John is one of the most recognized
negotiators on network television, and has conducted hundreds of negotiations with both men and women throughout his 20 years in business, he never planned to speak specifically about negotiation strategies for women—until California’s then-First Lady, Maria Shriver, called upon him to speak on this very topic for her annual Women’s Conference. Feeling a bit out of his realm and comfort zone, Daymond decided to immerse himself in research to find out what, if any, differences existed between how men and women tend to negotiate with each other.
In this keynote, Daymond shares what he has discovered in his research and personal experiences over the years. His findings will have audience members sitting up and taking notes! According to Daymond, women not only have several distinct advantages over men when negotiating—in both professional and personal settings—but they also have quite a few disadvantages as well.
Daymond will share specific techniques for responding to today’s negotiation challenges. Not only will this keynote leave every attendee feeling empowered, more confident, and ready to tackle the world, but it will also provide lots of fun and laughs in the process.
