Sam Horn—Pop! Your Business, Brand, Speaking and Consulting Career
Sam Horn will help you to create a one-of-a-kind marketing message that helps your ideas and offerings break out instead of blend in is precisely how to brand your innovation. Here's the description...
There are thousands of speakers, topic experts and management consultants across the country.
What are you doing to stand out? In tough times and in a crowded marketplace, no one can afford to stick to what and how you know. That's a prescription for blending in. and blending in is for Cuisinarts, not for consultants.
In Sam's rollicking, hands-on "Intellectual Disneyland" session you’ll brainstorm/strategize YOUR USP (Unique Strategic Positioning) so you become one-of-a-kind (vs. one-of-many).
You'll workshop your area of expertise and create content, marketing approaches and an innovative platform delivery that help you become THE go-to resource on your topic.
A sampling of the ideas you'll be covering in your time with Sam include how to:
- Crystallize an Umbrella Brand® so all your business activities have multiple pay-offs.
- Corner a niche with a NURD® (New Word) you can trademark and turn into a financial empire.
- Create "have 'em at hello" sound-bites that compel media and meeting planners to contact you.
- Describe what you do in a clear, compelling elevator story intro so people say, "Tell me more."
- Differentiate yourself from competitors so you don’t look and sound like everyone else.
- Develop memorable phrases that audience members repeat making them your free word-of-mouth advertisers.
- Riff off headlines for an evergreen supply of current, relevant content as a topical topic expert.
- Build an impressive body of work that positions you as a leader in your field and commands the respect of decision-makers and your target clients.
Face it. If you get just ONE more speaking engagement as a result of this program, your registration fee and entire trip costs will be paid for. And you'll get a LOT MORE than that—you'll get a breakout positioning that scales your influence and income and takes your business to a whole new level that results in more clients for years to come. See you in Key West this December.

This past December I had the wonderful opportunity of attending Ed Rigsbee’s Advanced Speaker retreat in Key West. It was phenomenal. We had a small group of maybe less than 18 folks and it was very well received by all attendees. We had some great speakers, learned quite a bit, and I was able to apply some things immediately. I highly recommend that if you have the opportunity, make time to attend the Key West retreat with Ed Rigsbee.
