Executive & Professional Branding

97% of companies, recruiters and private equity firms look at LinkedIn and social media first to fill an open position or when they have a business opportunity, according to LinkedIn. Companies and decision-makers look at LinkedIn first for business services they want. If your presence isn’t strong, it 1) doesn’t come up high in their search results, 2) doesn’t differentiate you, and 3) doesn’t tell a compelling story so they know why to choose you — you’re invisible. That’s where we come in. Our clients usually see results in the first week or two. – Go here for more details ->

Persuasive Kickoff Presentations and Keynotes

Give your participants something new that they can use now! They want to walk out of the presentation feeling like they’re been given a new Super Power Tool that will immediately make a difference in what they do.

That’s exactly what Jan Wallen delivers.

Jan studies your company, your clients, your products and services, social media presence, and your competitors before her presentation, so she knows your company and the marketplace as well as your audience members do.

She quickly makes a connection with audience members and paints a vivid picture of the benefits of the new concepts and initiatives that you’re introducing. She gives people specific and relevant actions they can use immediately, and examples with real-life facts and figures that illustrate success with the new strategies and techniques.

Jan is a persuasive natural advisor who specializes in launching new initiatives, and is a social media evangelist and advocate. Her enthusiasm and passion inspire audience members to take action and gives them the confidence to try new ways.

Whether your audience size is 25 or 25,000, Jan quickly gains their buy-in and takes them to “Yes” with her presentations.

Presentations can be designed to accommodate any requirements for your audience and event.

Executive & Professional Branding — Identifying your Expertise DNA

Your professional branding is critical when you’re in a field where hundreds or thousands of people do something similar to what you do. When you’re competing with many people, it’s easy to look the same as everyone else. And when everyone looks the same, the buying decision is made on price. (Or who knows whom.) For example:

For job searches: C-level executives. Everyone’s a “leader”. Almost everyone is a “strong leader”

Here’s how it works:

When the company with an open position (or your buyer) goes to social media, they have a picture in their mind of who they’re looking for. They may have a list of keywords to look for, a job description or criteria and specs for their project. They do the keyword search, and relevant profiles come up in the search results list. Then they scan the summary section, looking for 7 to 10 profiles to review in depth, and perhaps contact the executives. If your profile doesn’t come up near the top of the list, you’re invisible.

An additional challenge is that it may be a 28-year-old who’s been asked to do the search. They have a job description or the list of specs for the company they want to hire (industry experience, geography, etc.). They don’t have the business understanding (yet) to see from your profile or your Company page that you or your company fit the bill. So they skip you.

Your Expertise DNA. makes the difference. Through our proprietary process, we set you apart in your social media profiles, marketing materials, and even your elevator speech and presentations.

Our proprietary process also includes the How the World Sees You™ assessment. This is different from other assessments because it shows how you are valuable to others. Once you know how you add value, you’re more authentic and confident. The assessment gives you the exact words you need to make a brilliant impression, in your work, your job search, and in making career moves and changes.

I’ve reinvented myself several times, with big changes that were accepted when I explained it effectively. That’s what I help you do, too.

Jan coached me on re-working my LinkedIn page. I turned to her after she had been highly recommended by another CEO. She coached me through the process, upgrading my thinking on my approach, clearly telling me what parts of my previous approach had been bad (helpful). She offered fresh ideas (like adding video clips) that were distinctive and played to my strengths. I am definitely in a better place since working with Jan. In the two weeks since re-doing my LinkedIn page, I have been approached to interview for two new job opportunities — a significant upswing in activity.close_quote
