Erin_OMalley_HSSee Who's Coming!

Topic: The Power of Human Connection: Bringing curiosity, care, and control to a wild world

Speaker: Erin O'Malley

Do any of these situations sound familiar? You find yourself apologizing over and over when you know it’s really not your fault—but you have to save the relationship. You’re constantly putting in extra hours to make sure the client is happy, watching lost opportunities slip through your fingers with every spare minute spent. You’ve got speakers, vendors, sponsors, and attendees coming at you from all angles with different requests…and you’re wondering how you’re going to please them all?

If those situations ring true, join us for this interactive session where you’ll discover how to bring curiosity, care, and control to your client relationships so you’ll never respond “yes” to those situations again. In this day of hacks and top-five-tips lists to solve all of our problems, Erin’s session gets to the root of the real problem: a connection problem.

During this session, plan to put your active listening techniques to the test during our Story Session activity. You’ll discover what empathy feels like, beyond walking in someone else’s shoes, and how caring is the key to all client relationships. You’ll also explore techniques to bring the right mindset to your client relationships—even the challenging ones!

Key Learning Points:

•    Identify the biggest mistake we make in listening and learn how to solve it

•    Discover how empathy is the driving force of connection

•    Develop techniques to control your mindset when faced with challenging circumstances

•    Understand how connection is the key to loyalty, trust, and profitability
