How to Tell Your Audience the Future Without Scaring Them to Death

How to Tell Your Audience the Future Without Scaring Them to Death

As speakers, we spend a lot of time and energy trying to get known and stay known. Websites, demo videos, outreach to meeting planners, search engine optimization, email newsletters, writing books - It’s a lot. And, maybe none of it matters very much?

Keynote speaker, author, and marketing consultant, Mark Schaefer, calls today’s relationship between companies and customers the ‘Third Rebellion’, and it changes everything about how organizations – even speakers – find and gain more customers.

You’ll hear about the Third Rebellion and a terrific example of how it works day-to-day on this episode of Standing Ovation.
