Clay Hebert
  • The Perfect Intro

  • “So…what do you do?” Do you have a great answer to that question? We introduce ourselves all the time…and if we’re honest…most of us blow it. Answering this critical question poorly is the most frequent mistake we make…and the easiest to fix. The Elevator Pitch is dead. Nobody cares about your title. Nobody wants your business card. In fact, nobody even cares what you do…yet. First, they care about whether what you do can help them, someone they know, or someone they love. In this fun, customized and energetic talk, Clay will share the Perfect Intro framework that has helped thousands of entrepreneurs, executives, leaders and brands improve how they introduce themselves and tell the stories of the work they do.

    Clay is also leading a breakout session at Spark digging deeper : The Perfect Intro: Nail Your Intro (Everywhere), Craft Customer Case Stories, and Multiply Word-of-Mouth With Portable Stories

Wednesday Morning Main Session

Natalie Franke
  • Breakthrough Thinking: How to take risks, break the rules, and excel creatively with an entrepreneurial mindset

  • Getting stuck happens. Staying stuck doesn’t have to. The gap between where you are and where you want to be is not nearly as wide as you think it is. Often we get cemented into ways of operating and patterns of thinking that when disrupted through radical curiosity and thoughtful courage lead us towards our greatest potential. This talk will walk you through the core tenets of breakthrough thinking that will fundamentally change how you approach your creative business.
