Two-time TED speaker, Joanna Bloor, will show how to powerfully answer the age-old question "What do you do?"

This program will help to...

  • Cultivate an understanding of how decisions are made about you (in a room you're not it!)
  • Develop a strategy to impact those decisions
  • Understand how your story is told by other people and how to manage it
  • “We are so much more than just our title.”

This rhetoric is not just a philosophy for Joanna. She’s on a mission to get people to talk about themselves in a new way.

We buy everything on emotion and justify on fact, any marketer can tell you this. But what about people? How do you answer the question "What do you do?" Most people answer with just facts. Yet every decision made about you and your opportunities is made in a room you're not in. And in a world where the line between humanity and technology is getting blurrier by the day, why are we still sounding like robots, why are we just giving the facts?

Known for "live coaching" audience members she teaches them to walk away with a bold, compelling, authentic and unique answer to the question "What do you do?”

"Joanna shines a light on long-forgotten ingredients that make up our secret sauce, reminding us that we’re not awesome by accident.” Cristina Jones, SVP Trailblazer Marketing
