    Session Overview:

    When used correctly, promotional products are a powerful advertising and communications tool. Unfortunately, too many buyers don’t understand the medium or how to get the most value for their investment.  And too many professionals don’t correct them.

    Learning Outcomes:

    • Learn how to talk about the power of promotional products
    • Position our medium as an effective problem-solving tool
    • Help your clients understand why working with a professional will improve results

    Presenting Left Brain/Right Brain

    Session Overview: So much of who we are we ascribe to being is based on left brained (logical) versus right brained (creative) definitions. But what does that really mean for us and our future? Does logic really give us an advantage over softer, more emotional, more empathetic skill sets? This session will help you figure out which side of the brain is more dominant and how you can harness those innate skills to differentiate in a world of sameness. And it will give you opportunities to apply those same skills to differentiate both your business and your pitch to customers.
