Cathy Goodwin, Ph.D., is a professional speaker offering talks, presentations and workshops. Cathy combines fast-paced, information-rich content with her own brand of unique irreverence. Her infectious energy and easygoing style will engage your group members, even after a long day of meetings.
When you want your members to say, “Thank you for bringing us a good speaker.”
Cathy speaks to organizations that attract service professionals, such as service business owners, consultants, authors, speakers, trainers, financial service providers, lawyers, and coaches. Her specialty is delivering solid content with engaging style and humor. She’s happy to speak at organization meetings, webinars and podcasts. She also participates as a guest on radio talk shows and teleseminars.
Cathy holds a PhD in business (specializing in marketing), but she probably doesn’t fit your memories of the college professor. She uses humor (she’s wowed crowds at open mikes as a stand-up comedian) and story-telling. Here’s a video of a 5-minute informal presentation from a local organization – 6 minutes and 10 slides.
“What’s Your Story?”
This question strikes fear into the heart of most business owners. Should you bring up the story of how you chose to start this business…even when you just fell into it by luck? Must you bare your soul by sharing your struggles and pains? What’s the best story to present yourself as an authority without coming across as boastful or arrogant? In this talk, you’ll discover..
- how to discover the agenda of whoever’s asking you this question
- the most common mistake business owners make when they “tell their story” (and the easy way to avoid it)
- where to find compelling stories in your own life and business
