John Boyd, "How to Define Your True Value and Sell It to Your Target Market"
John Boyd is the author of the book The Illustrated Guide to Selling Yourself. You have a lot to offer to organizations. However, if you are like most people, you don't feel comfortable bragging about your capabilities and selling yourself. It could be because you are one of the 60% of the population that according to the Stanford Shyness Clinic considers yourself shy. Or it might be that you just don't know how to highlight your achievements. Regardless, you need to attend this presentation to learn a process that includes a proven way to present yourself to sell yourself - without selling yourself! You will learn the right way to present your skills, accomplishments, awards and activities in the most positive framework.
