HOGSHEAD / Sally Hogshead
Sally Hogshead believes the greatest value you can add is to become more of yourself.
Sally created the Fascination Advantage®, the first personality assessment that measures how others perceive you.
After researching over 600,000 people, her algorithm can pinpoint your most valuable differentiating traits. Unlike Myers-Briggs or StrengthsFinder, this test doesn’t measure how you see the world – but how the world sees you.
Her recent book, HOW THE WORLD SEES YOU, was a #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller.
The science of fascination is based on Sally’s decade of research with dozens of Fortune 500 teams, hundreds of small businesses, and over a thousand C-level
At the start of her career, Sally skyrocketed to the top of the advertising elite, writing commercials that fascinated millions of consumers. At the age of 24, she was the most award-winning copywriter in the U.S., and opened her first ad agency at age 27. Her work still hangs in the Smithsonian Museum of American History. She frequently appears in national media, including NBC’s Today Show and the New York Times.
Sally is one of only 200 professional speakers since 1977 to be inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame, the industry’s highest award for professional excellence.
SPEECH TITLES AND DESCRIPTIONS
Why are you captivated by some people, but not others? How do certain leaders convince you to change your opinion? Advertising icon Sally Hogshead has the answers. In her acclaimed book, FASCINATE, Hogshead brings a strategic marketing approach to the art of influence. Often compared to the work of Malcolm Gladwell and Seth Godin, Hogshead’s research weaves together neurology, economics, history, biology, and pop culture.
Sally’s energetic style and research-based content instantly command an audience’s attention. She’s best suited for main stage keynotes, and other events that demand a speaker with authority, power, and passion. A few of her most popular topics include:
HOW TO FASCINATE: From First Impressions to Lasting Value
(Professional Development, Sales, and Leadership)
We live in a distracted world. The average attention span is just 9 seconds. Yet if we only have 9 seconds to communicate value, how do we break through? To stop the distraction, and engage a listener, we must create moments of intense focus.
Yet when we do break through-when we use our personality advantages to connect and communicate-the results are extraordinary.
Sally Hogshead teaches audiences how to communicate and add value in the first 9 seconds. Participants learn how to fascinate, to become more memorable and valued.
When companies learn how to fascinate, their products become more desirable, their customers turn into advocates, and their best employees never want to leave.
Sally explores the science of personal branding, based her original research of 100,000 people. Audiences will learn how to:
» Identify their personality’s top advantage
» Make stronger first impressions
» More quickly earn respect and trust
» Increase value among co-workers
This is a powerful, funny, high-energy presentation, filled with interaction. Each participant discovers his own unique advantage to be heard and remembered.
CAPTIVATE YOUR CUSTOMER: How Fascinating Companies Win the Moment
(Marketing and Business Trends)
When you fascinate your customers, they’re more likely to remember you, buy from you, and rave about you. Yet in today’s distracted and competitive environment, most messages are either forgotten or ignored.
In a competitive market, the most fascinating option always wins. How will your participants compete, and win?
Sally’s research uncovers new trends in how the brain establishes patterns of loyalty and respect. For example, she discovered that by applying certain hardwired triggers, a fascinating brand can charge up to four times more than its competitors.
Taking audiences on a high-velocity journey through neurology, economic, and pop culture, Sally handpicks case studies and shares custom audience analysis. Participants will be buzzing long after the keynote ends, inspired by new ideas to transform their business.
THE 9-SECOND FASCINATION STATEMENT: How to Introduce Yourself with Value
(Optional interactive exercise)
Sally Hogshead estimates that roughly 90% of introductions fail to engage a conversation, let alone a relationship. In fact most of the time, when we introduce ourselves to a prospective client or contact, we’re actually damaging our personal brand.
Why? Because too few people realize how to immediately communicate their value.
In this innovative and interactive session, Sally will teach each person in your audience how to highlight his or her own personality advantage. A recent pilot study for Unilever demonstrated that after the study, participants were 34% more confident in their introduction.
By the end of this session, every participant in the room will have created their own 9-seond “elevator pitch” to earn respect and interest. Participants learn how to identify their unique advantages, and articulate this more clearly in all areas of their professional brand.
