"The growth of your business is directly related to your own personal growth."~ Jeffrey Summers, Founder|Principal Summers Hospitality Group
I find that audiences are far better served through provocation and by challenging them with new ideas or new perspectives than they are with commiseration, pandering, and “comfort food” (which many presentations resemble). Of course, the speaker must be calibrated toward helping others and not self-aggrandizing. If you’re receiving 10s on feedback sheets and standing ovations at every presentation, the odds are that you’re simply not doing a very good job improving others’ lives with the speaker’s you’ve chosen.
Still Here? OK Then
My passionate delivery of “Nail On The Head” content will leave everyone energized with dozens of new ideas and even more important, a commitment to use what they’ve learned.
In order to fine-tune the information I present, as well as create more and deeper value for you and those who participate in your event, my speaking process always includes whenever and wherever possible:
I invest up to two weeks of time and effort to design and prepare for each presentation.
Interviews with all key stakeholders (staff, managers, guests, vendors, etc…)
Observation (I’ll covertly observe your business and people in action – in person – where possible)
Social media research (mentions, posts, website, reviews, etc…)
I will help promote the event on my site and via my social media channels beginning 2 months before the event.
I will provide a presentation of up to 90-minutes (including Q&A)
Handouts of all materials used at your event or make them available as a download from your and my website just for event participants.
I will stay at the event during the day on which I speak, answering any questions that attendees have
I’ll be also available to attendees of your event for educational sessions, coaching, one-on-ones, Q&A, or just for questions after the speaking session.
All participants will receive direct email access to me for follow-up and questions.
All handouts, slides, notes, etc. will be available for download from the event webpage on the SHG website.
Empowering Your Employees
“Jeffrey explains the Why, but illustrates the How-To, as well”
I don’t entertain. I inspire audiences to take action, then equip them to do so. Your audience will leave with the knowledge and tools necessary to immediately put better ideas into practice, so they can realize tangible benefits for their businesses. This level of practical insight helps your attendees to demonstrate the ROI of attending your event.
I never give the same talk twice! So needless to say, I customize each topic and presentation to fit your businesses needs but past topics covered include:
Service and the Guest: How Not to Be A Commodity!
