GLOBAL KEYNOTE PROGRAMS
DW Starr, Global Keynote Speaker, is a catalyst for leaders and teams to turn DISRUPTIVE CHANGE into FINANCIAL SUCCESS. His dynamic speaking style engages audiences and challenges them with their own “Lightbulb-Moments”, leaving them energized and inspired.
Sales is DW’s other passion, successfully making his first sales presentation at 9 years old. His focus is working with the “newbie salesperson or team” helping them gain the essential understanding of what sales truly is, and creating the effective mindset to become “One of the Best”!
“If You’re NOT Changing… You’re Falling Behind!”
Your competitors can’t wait to pass you by and leave you in the dust, or better yet, buy you up or out. Or at the very least, grab a huge chunk of your market share for themselves. They want to introduce a new product or service that will threaten YOUR customers’ loyalty and following? You might disbelieve this. BUT look at your goals. Are you not thinking and planning the same strategy, or one similar? Did you know that 40% of Fortune 500 companies that were around ten years ago are no longer here? In today’s rapidly changing business world that means, “If you’re NOT changing… you’re falling behind!” Your leaders and teams will learn the “secrets” of EXPONENTIAL GROWTH with DW’s “inside-out” approach thru his proprietary interactive exercises, metaphors and actionable stories.
Disruptive Change and Innovation
In this very interactive, high paced, fun and process-driven Keynote, DW works with your leaders and teams to become the driver of change and innovation instead of being run over by it. Many people find change to be difficult. They find themselves confused and having trouble adopting and adapting to change and innovation which causes a loss of employee engagement and a revenue loss for your company of up to 5.8% (Deloitte Survey). Using relevant stories, metaphors, and proprietary interactive exercises your audience will learn how they can move toward a better understanding of and engage more effectively with change and innovation. This results in both a better working environment for your people and a greater BOTTOM LINE PROFITABILITY for your company and organization.
It’s Not What or How You Say It. It’s What They See, Feel, Hear & Think!
People are slippery. You never know from one minute to the next what they might do, say or think. But, if we want to build organizations and teams that will thrive and enjoy Exponential Growth in Sales, we MUST learn to Communicate Well and be Understood Often. Here’s a quote you might have heard from a parent, grandparent or school teacher growing up. “It’s not what you say but HOW you say It.” Unfortunately, that’s only half the truth. Here’s an Insider Sales Secret…It’s not what You say. Not HOW You say it. It’s what They hear and believe You Mean. DW shows your leaders and teams, through their own personal experiences and his proprietary interactive exercises how they can be the master of being understood and therefore a master of Sales.
Leadership That Leads
In this hands-on, interactive and process-driven Keynote, DW works with your leaders and teams to recognize and evaluate the leadership style they are currently working with. Your team members want leadership and they want it to be responsive and reflective. What they don’t want is the old-style leadership of do what I say and don’t ask me any questions, just do it; much like a military style of leadership. That style causes employee disengagement or a
“I’ll just do what I have to so I can get by” attitude. This attitude squashes creative thinking, solutions gathering, and this lack of employee engagement cripples the bottom line and profitability. Using relevant stories, metaphors, and proprietary interactive exercises your audience will learn how they can move toward a better understanding of RESPONSIVE LEADERSHIP, and begin to apply it, including a 5 Step Action Plan for creating a RESPONSIVE LEADERSHIP culture.
