The secret to being influential: Maintaining dynamic contact with strategic centers of influence

No matter how good you think you may be, the average person has to hear your message 6-8 times to remember it/you. Most people, however, rarely touch a key center of influence more than once or twice a year.

Influence is directly proportional to how good you make other critical centers of influence feel about you. This can only be accomplished over time, through hard work and intentionally reinforcing your personal brand within your targeted domain. In this presentation, Tim will show you:

  • How to whittle your contacts down to the right 20-30
  • What it takes to be memorable in a meaningful way
  • How to get others to feel strongly that you are the only smart choice when it comes to your area of expertise
