STORY = information, knowledge, context and emotion
When facts are so widely available and instantly accessible, each one becomes less valuable. What begins to matter more is the ability to place these facts in context and to deliver them with emotional impact.
That’s what you get when you bring me David Gee in as a keynote, breakout, Host/MC or closer. He has the talent, background, experience, versatility and stories to truly be a perfect fit for many different types of industries, organizations and topics.
He specializes in extensive pre-meeting research to deliver just the right message for you, working to form a true partnership for a customized, successful event, including blogging or creating a video to promote his appearance at your event.
Unlike the vast majority of professional speakers, he doesn't have a list of canned speeches to choose from. Instead, he will draw from an amazing career as an entertainment reporter, TV news anchor, corporate PR pro and consultant to craft unique messaging around the 3 Second Selling™ platform that your attendees and participants will be able to remember – and implement – for use in their own personal and professional lives.
It will be all new to the audience of course, but it will be fresh to his as well, resulting in a delivery that is exciting, has a high educational value, and will never sound rote or tired.
Besides weaving the cornerstones of 3 Second Selling™ into the presentations, these are some of the anecdotes – and video clips – you might hear/see in a session/speech with David Gee:
· What Jim Carrey taught me about “the secret of selling”
· What Tom Hanks told me about the value of collaboration
· How John Travolta rekindled his passion for acting
· What I did to arouse Mel Gibson’s brain
· Why Paul Newman stopped signing autographs (it happened at a urinal)
· What being on the red carpet at the Academy Awards taught me about being in the moment
· What Terry Bradshaw taught me about preparation
· What Walter Payton taught me about pursuing your passion
· What my audition as an International DJ in London taught me about thinking on your feet
· What doing 175 live shots and working for 24 straight hours at the scene of the last big Los Angeles earthquake taught me about perseverance
· And many others
Keynote (in-person or virtual)
U.S. companies spend over $70 billion annually on training, and an average of $1,459 per salesperson — almost 20% more than they spend on workers in all other functions. Yet, when it comes to equipping sales teams with relevant knowledge and skills, the ROI of sales training is disappointing
3 Second Selling™ is not a traditional sales training program, and the way it is coached and taught is not traditional as well. It is about getting you in the habit of being deliberate, original, authentic and different, and creating memorable engagements every day of your life.
Here’s a little more background on how we learn and why 3 Second Selling™ is different than traditional sales training programs.
While we might be able to understand a new concept or idea right away, this isn’t very useful over time. The reason is in order for you to use this new thing in different real-world situations, your brain needs to grow between 100,000 and 100 million new connections. These new connections create the new “programming” that give you the ability to do something you couldn’t previously.
Scientists call this adaptive reasoning, or mastery. Without enough new connections, mastery is never achieved. Without mastery, it is impossible to improve performance.
When you hire 3 Second Selling™ for your company, you get personalized, differentiated instruction, as well as post-lesson reinforcement that dramatically increases learning efficiency and efficacy.
This involves not only listening, but also role playing, answering questions, writing, storytelling, etc. Look at these numbers below to see how this helps.
