Everything about today’s marketplace is different – your customers, competition, technology, and employees. In a world that has changed so drastically, doesn’t it make sense that you need a new approach to how you sell, how you lead, how you grow your organization?

Sales strategist, leadership expert, Certified Speaking Professional, and award-winning author, Meridith Elliott Powell wants today’s businesses to stop viewing uncertainty as something that prevents them from being successful. This is why her virtual programs, leadership coaching, online courses, and keynote presentations leverage her 9 step formula for making uncertainty your company’s strategic advantage™.

So you can stop letting unpredictability be an obstacle to your success, and start embracing today’s uncertainty to to drive your organization’s growth and achieve phenomenal results.

A couple of years ago Meridith became obsessed with the word uncertainty and how we as business owners react so negatively to the word. She wanted to discover why so many of us let unpredictability become an obstacle to our success, so she started on a journey to find business leaders and organizations that had learned how to turn uncertainty into their strategic advantage.

She was able to uncover a wealth of knowledge. Meridith discovered several companies that have managed to survive a wide range of adversity.

From economic downturns and depressions, world wars, and even a global pandemic these organizations were able to create powerful growth opportunities from their uncertain times.

Through exhaustively researching these amazing organizations Meridith was able to find several common threads each of these success stories shared. And, she compiled what she learned into her 9 step formula for making uncertainty your company’s strategic advantage.

This formula works and Meridith Elliot Powell wants to share it with you. So contact Preferred Speakers today so that you can start leveraging today’s uncertainty and get on track to make this the best year ever.
