Strategy Session: Align Your Business & Speaking Goals
Create a clear and focused plan for how speaking (including podcast interviews) fits into your business to gain more clients, grow your network, and build your influence.
During our 90-minute call, we can strategize about any of the questions below or discuss other topics related to speaking and messaging.
→ You’ll walk away with a plan, clarity, focus, a recording of the call, and a structured Google Doc with notes from our session, so you don’t have to try to remember what we come up with! (I’m an expert notetaker as we talk.)
What is your unique message?
Do you have a hard time explaining to people what you do so they “get” it right away? Are you not sure what’s truly unique about your brand? Is your business getting lost amidst the noise?
How can you get the most out of every speaking engagement?
We can talk about the content you’re presenting, to make sure it aligns with your value proposition, as well as the offer you’re making, so that the audience is primed to want to work with you.
What message will best resonate with the audiences you want to reach?
Do you have a clear picture of the problem you’re helping your audience solve and are you communicating it in their language? We can work on identifying your core message.
How can you improve your presentation to make it more persuasive and engaging?
If you have an existing presentation, we can go over the key parts of it, especially the closing and audience engagement, to make sure it achieves your goals.
If you’ve never done a strategy session, it’s all focus, no fluff. We’ll work on what you need the most help with.
A client recently said to me, “I’ve done more in one session with you than I have by myself in the past year.” That’s how powerful it is to work out your ideas with someone else.

“Carol’s help with my presentation was invaluable! Through her process, we were able to clarify the message I needed to share with my audience. Then she helped me to organize my presentation in a way that resonated with all in attendance. Because of this help, I was offered several additional speaking opportunities and even a job as an adjunct professor! If you want to change the world with your message, Carol is the lady who will get you there!”
