An Invitation To Attend The 2012 7th Annual NY XPO for Business

Hello one and all. Sorry for the lack of updates on my blog, but do not see that as some sort of a sign of laziness. I have been busy, busy, busy. Creating content, new workshops, traveling and white papers for some pretty big clients. All very hush, hush, top secret and will be revealed in good time.

So for now I have a great piece of news that should get you excited: I am inviting you to attend the upcoming 7th Annual New York XPO for Business to be held at the Javits Center here in New York City on May 2-3, 2012.

Now why would I invite you to such
a large, prestigious, hip event?

Well First of all, Tim Davis and I will be presenting a great workshop entitled "Cracking The Gen Y Code: Selling & Marketing to a Generation That Hates to Be Sold To." This is a one hour seminar/Q&A starting at 3:00 PM on May 3rd.

How do you sell to a tech savvy customer who was raised on Video Games, The Internet and understands Cloud Technology INTUITIVELY? Or better yet, how do you craft a sales pitch to a generation that is impatient with linear sales presentations? 

There will be roll playing and insights into the sales patterns of Gen X & Y as well as a Q&A session near the end.

Second: Those of you who attend the workshop will get a FREE Audio CD entitled Understanding The Digital Divide: How to Spot It, Manage It and Reinvent Yourself for the 21st Century!

This is a one hour casual conversation between myself and Tony Rubleski author of The MindCapture series and President of The Mind Capture Group. You will love this bonus as we delve into what caused the generational divide, the technological revolution and how to reinvent your business in the Digital Age.

There will be a secret bonus I will reveal at the event.

Fourth: I will be signing a limited amount of copies of Liquid Leadership: From Woodstock to Wikipedia at a deep discount!!!

Five: Preregistration gets you a discount!!! If you register now, it is $40 for BOTH DAYS. This is a chance to walk around and hobnob with other business leaders and attendees. Now last year I attended and ran into over 15 people I know in business and not only did we reconnect, we started developing strategies and some have worked out a few joint ventures with me. Also, if you need better vendors, this is the place to see them in action. Each booth is packed with companies willing to work with you no matter how big or small.

Now if you wait 'til the last minute there is an additional $10 added to the entrance fee on the day of the event, so register now...it's over a month away.

Thanks for reading, I look forward to meeting you in person...
