Your Value Proposition: Why Should Someone WANT to Have a 20-Minute Conversation with You?

Monday, April 23 at 9:30 a.m.
Contrary to popular belief, the Value Proposition is NOT a reason for a prospective employer to HIRE you. Rather, it is simply a reason for a prospect to take an interest in having a 20-minute conversation with you. It’s about engaging others and building relationships. 
So how do we to achieve that? Much of it is about sharing stories not of activities in previous positions, but of RESULTS you helped create–results that are relevant to prospective employers. This session will give you the tools and know-how to look at your previous work, and do just that.

Keith Luscher, founder and principal of SYP Media, LLC, brings more than twenty years of creative directorial and production experience to content marketing and IP(intellectual property) development. His experience in content marketing predates the internet, back when it was referred to as “custom publishing.”


As author of the book Prospect & Flourish, Luscher advises colleagues on issues related to marketing and prospecting, and he has developed groundbreaking educational curriculum used in the insurance industry.
