Many women are outstanding cheerleaders for those they care about—children, spouses, friends, team members—with one exception: themselves. As much as they wish others would notice their natural talents, pinpoint their achievements, and shower them with recognition, the reality is that even women who are great at promoting something or someone else often have a hard time doing it for themselves. Does that sound familiar to you?

If the idea of self-promotion makes you feel uncomfortable, this session is for you. Simply keeping quiet about your accomplishments and hoping your work will speak for itself will not get you anywhere. Instead, you must put your modesty aside, overcome your lack of confidence, and become skilled in identifying your strengths and talents—making them visible and heard.

Learn to identify and verbalize your value. You will walk away from this session with a personal mission statement highlighting “YOU” so you can comfortably toot your own horn and see what doors you can open and barriers you can break.

“You have seven seconds. Make them count!” says keynote speaker Sylvie di Giusto, CSP. Sylvie helps individuals and organizations explore how others make up their minds very quickly about them and either open the door for them or slam it shut. Around the world, she takes audiences on an interactive and entertaining journey of self-discovery that reveals how the world sees them and, ultimately, how they see themselves. Through her unique and thought-provoking presentations, she helps audience members lead better, sell faster, and persuade instantly. She empowers them to master first impressions in any professional environment and during customer interactions. Sylvie is also the author of The Image of Leadership and is the mind and producer behind dozens of corporate and individual online courses, including her own “How You Impress” online academy.
