View Curriculum
  • Be clear on two things: 1) What's your product/service, and 2) Who's your customer/client.
  • Be a member of a Chamber of Commerce, Referral Group (e.g. BNI), Trade Association, or other networking group where you have the opportunity to speak to audience about your business, either as a sponsor or featured presenter.
  • You don't have to be a polished public speaker, but this isn't a course on getting over stage fright. You should be generally OK speaking to a group.

$10k in 10 Minutes.  I've done it and I've helped others do it as well.  As an example, by sponsoring a chamber of commerce luncheon I was able to give a 10 minute presentation about my company and the value I provide to my clients - my "Sponsor Presentation."  Using the skills I have learned and taught to others, I was able to generate over $13,000 in referrals from people in the room immediately after the luncheon was over.  

In this course, I'm going to teach you the same components and processes I've used to help others build amazing presentations that have helped them generate $10k and more from sponsor presentations at events for chambers, trade associations, and non-profits, as well as their featured presentation at referral groups such as BNI.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for you if you're a business owner or it's your job to promote a business. You have the opportunity to speak to groups about your business because you sponsored an event.
  • You're part of referral or networking organizations (such as BNI or chambers of commerce) that give you these opportunities on a regular basis.
  • This course is not about general presentation skills. It is specifically about structuring a sponsor or featured presentation in a way that motivates the audience to pass you referrals, or become your customer and client themselves.

If Trust is the emotional side, Credibility is the Rational and Logical side.  In this lesson, learn 3 different ways you can quickly build credibility with your audience so they not only feel good about doing business with you, they believe you can deliver results as well.

Trust and Credibility are absolutely vital to this process, but it's often not enough.  They would "like" to refer themselves and others to you, but if you don't empower your audience, they're not likely to do so.  How do you give them the confidence and clarity necessary?  Learn that in this lesson.

Before you start laying out your presentation, you have to be crystal clear on this...

Key Component #1: Always the 1st Thing

Answer these quick questions to help focus on a Clear Objective for your presentation.
Develop the First Thing
3 questions

Sure, you could be just another item on the agenda, or you could build up anticipation in your audience so that they eagerly want to hear what you have to say even before you begin the presentation.  That's what a tantalizing teaser is all about.

Key Component #2: A Tantalizing Teaser

Here I'll walk you through a teaser I developed with one of my clients that was hot (literally!), involving a trash can fire in a hotel ballroom.

Another Teaser For You

Questions to Consider When Creating Your Bio
Build Your Bio
4 questions

It's the most common question asked at a networking event, and likely the first question on the minds of your audience. Sadly, most people answer this all wrong.  The most common answer is even grammatically inconsistent with the question! This key component will be useful outside of your presentation, and we'll give special focus to how to structure your answer in a way that people can firmly grasp what you do, and be eager to hear how you do it.

Key Component #4: An Atypical Answer to, "So, What Do You Do?"

Answer these questions to help define "What You Do" in a way that people will understand and relate to.
Defining What You Do For People
3 questions

If you haven't watched Simon Sineck's Ted Talk, "How Great Leaders Inspire Action," you should (link is in the resources). He explains why it is so important to explain our, "Why."  Unfortunately, most people do this in an completely selfish, uninspiring way.  In this lesson, you'll learn a simple way to communicate your "Why" in a way that people can relate to, be inspired by, and want to be a part of.

Key Component #5: It's Not Why You Do It

Answer these questions to help you communicate your "Why" in way that is inspiring to others.
Finding Your Inspiring Why
6 questions

Yes, of course you're special!  And your business is, too.  However, your audience doesn't really know how. We need to spend some time explaining it to them.  In this lesson, you'll learn the two distinctly different ways to differentiate yourself, and key questions you have to be able to answer to make each one matter to your audience.

Key Component #6: Are You Special?

Pick the most relevant differentiators.
Your Key Differentiators
4 questions

No one wants to listen to someone brag on and on about how great they are.  But we do need to understand the value you bring to your customers and clients if we're going to do business with you or refer you to our network. Here's how to do that without sounding like a big-headed egomaniac.

Key Component #7: How to Talk About Yourself Without Sounding Like a Big Jerk

I'll walk you through the slide deck of the presentation I gave to a small group at my local chamber that generated over $13,000 in referrals.  This is a dissection, rather than a "presentation."  I'll point out how I overcame the dirty lies, and used the key components and points of polish.  I'll explain why I used the components in the way I did, and also point out some mistakes and things I would do differently.
