August 26, 2015: Promoting U! Use Career Common CENTS™* to Promote Your Business

Speaker: Tonya Tiggett, CEO and CSS Promoting University, LLC and Speak Our Language, LLC

How do you differentiate yourself from other businesses and competitors? Are you communicating your company strengths and what you bring to the table? Do you really know how your employees and staff are contributing to your company and to your clients? Do you dread talking about your company or yourself for fear of turning off others?

In this session you’ll learn how to objectively and confidently promote you and your business so that you will be able to:

  • Identify personal or professional success and confidently share with clients and your team
  • Pinpoint your strengths to differentiate your business and to stand out
  • Utilize a Career Common CENTS™ formula to clearly communicate your value and strengths, which captures the head and the heart of your customer base and colleagues
  • Share these tools with your staff for continuous improvement, clear communication and engaging interactions with clients and colleagues
