Discover Your Fair Advantage
Sylvie di Giusto

10:45 a.m.–11:45 a.m.

Help your audience unlock their full human potential by identifying their unique selling points.

How do you set yourself apart from your peers and competitors? How do you distinguish yourself from the rest of the pack? What exactly makes you stand out? Why should people trust, follow, buy from, or buy into you?

These are profound questions that professionals in the workplace should be able to answer instantly. However, they rarely take the time to identify what makes them one of a kind. The answer lies in their fair advantage—the combination of fifteen unique selling points that help them position themselves as valued professionals to decision-makers within or beyond their organization.

Discovering and leveraging their fair advantage provides professionals with a greater sense of self-awareness and self-confidence that allows them to present, act, and communicate authentically and confidently in DEMO any situation.

ROI & Key Outcomes:

  • Authenticity: Develop a personal brand voice and learn how to use it within a professional environment.
  • Perspective: Gain a greater sense of self-awareness and understanding of what makes you unique and how you can use it at work.
  • Credibility: Discover the value you bring to the table and why people should trust, follow, or buy from you.
  • Differentiation: Uncover your unique selling points and learn how best to communicate them in a concise and compelling manner.
  • Self-belief: Learn techniques to overcome self-doubt, imposter syndrome, and other limiting beliefs that hinder professional growth.
  • Accountability: Learn how to take ownership of your professional development and growth by creating a personalized brand strategy that aligns with your fair advantage.

Besides being a Featured Speaker, Sylvie di Giusto is the keynote speaker at the Titleholders Luncheon!

Titleholders Luncheon: You Have 7 Seconds. Make Them Count!

1:00 p.m.–2:30 p.m.

People we meet make quick decisions about us. Should they hire us? Trust us? Buy something from us? It just takes a blink of an eye, and, like it or not, you’re going to be judged. This may seem unfair, but it’s an opportunity to take control of the narrative and showcase your best self from the first to last interaction with team members, customers, vendors—any stakeholder.

In business, first impressions are essential to building relationships with others. They’ll set the tone for the entire experience, and the relationship with the brand will depend on them. The good thing is that this impression is something people can control.

By leveraging the power of emotional intelligence, they can make intentional choices about how they present themselves in these crucial moments. Whether seeking to build relationships with colleagues, impress stakeholders, or win over new customers, their ability to convey authenticity, confidence, and empathy can make all the difference.
