Opportunities for development and motivation come in many forms, on June 21st and 22nd 2016, the Professional Insurance Agents Western Alliance (PIA) will be bringing their annual Oregon & Idaho EXPO to Eugene, Oregon. PIA primarily assists professionals working in the insurance industry with education, networking and resources but events like these are open to interested individuals who may find value in the two day conference.
The keynote presentation to open Day 2 of the PIA EXPO on Wednesday, June 22nd will cover EPIC NETWORKING: Use Narrative Intelligence to grow and develop your contacts, a topic that has a broad application to anyone engaged in business.
This presentation will be given by Steve Donahue, a motivational speaker and best selling author who, "Grabs your attention and never lets go. His highly interactive and deeply researched presentations touch the heart and soul of corporate purpose and individual motivation." Steve's own epic journey started as a young man when he ventured across the Sahara Desert overland. An experience that has fueled him for over 25 years to share the story of that epic journey to help companies and individuals change and experience epic success.
Steve is a bestselling author and one of the world’s leading experts on the business applications of Narrative Intelligence. His first book, Shifting Sands, has sold over 125,000 copies in half a dozen countries. Steve has spoken to 500 organizations on 4 continents. As a former standup comedian, Steve’s presentations are highly entertaining and packed with easy to implement ideas that produce immediate impact.
Most understand that networking is crucial to success in any business but networking is often an calendar item that doesn't get the time or value that it needs to flourish. Steve Donahue will show you how use Narrative Intelligence to achieve epic results through face-to-face networking and all forms of follow up. To be the hero of your own career you need to become the best supporting actor or actress in the epic tale of others. Instead of learning to “work the room” Steve will show you how to “start a story” that will build your network naturally and effectively with a follow up system that is fun and efficient.
For those interested in attending the Professional Insurance Agents Oregon and Idaho annual EXPO, information and registration details can be found on the PIA website. Utilize the resources available to you, especially when they show up in your backyard.
