Selling in a S.K.I.R.T.

judy hoberman

Don’t be fooled by the name, as this is not a “women-only” presentation…everyone can benefit and everyone is invited.  Judy Hoberman’s engaging keynote presentation reveals reality-based ideas using humorous but down to earth stories about how men and women sell, manage, recruit and supervise differently.  Utilizing case studies, Judy teaches both genders how to support each other’s successes in a more productive way. 

An interactive and engaging discussion around how Meeting Planners stand out in the business world as it is today is not only relevant, but critical. What are the activities that will set you apart? Attendees will learn strategies to become the expert in their space rather than simply blending in. They will be able to create the experience for their customers that will keep them coming back again and providing referrals. Being able to be intentional with their marketing, networking and relationships will round off the session. The secret is how S.K.I.R.T. comes into play uncovering the acronym and the importance in Sales-Standing Out, Keys to Success, Inspiration, Results and Time Management.

During this session attendees will learn:

The basic communication differences between men and women

The importance of building relationships

Discovering ways to be the expert so you become the resource for your target market

Creating the “harmony” for you allowing you to be present in most situations"

Available for one (1.0) hour of EIC Credit – pending approval


Career Cafe

Steven Foster

Join us for “Full-Throttle LinkedIn” at MPI Dallas/Fort Worth’s First Career Café! We know the job market is as hot as a Texas summer right now and we want to help our MPI members build their careers and their teams by leveraging their invaluable MPI network.

MPI Dallas/Fort Worth’s Career Café is a new program designed for meeting industry professionals who are looking for new career opportunities and those who are looking to build their teams with top talent. Formerly known as the Mentor Café, the Career Café will occur in conjunction with monthly MPI programs and will offer career-focused networking for job seekers and hiring managers as well as professional development content that is relevant at any stage in your career.

Join us for our first Career Café session at the September meeting. Learn how to become a social media “Bad Ass” with award-winning speaker, writer and Harley-Davidson LIFE member Steven G. Foster, CMP, Managing Partner of Foster+Fathom, a Leadership and Goodness Development Group in Dallas, Texas. Steven knows first-hand, on a bike or in business; success requires creating opportunities for people to connect with one another and expand their reach. With more than 500 million registered users, LinkedIn has become the ultimate networking site for professionals. Having a strong LinkedIn profile is a MUST to help distinguish your personal brand and connect with job posters and job seekers.

You start, according to Steven, by utilizing social media to “Run and Ride” like a motorcycle club to create professional horsepower AND staying power:

• Own your piece of the Road

• Improve skills and capability

• Generate enthusiasm

• Share powerful stories
