Jennifer Kok Speaks on Virtual Webinars Zoom, Training Classes, In-Person Speaking Events, and Podcast Guest
Perfect for a group of entrepreneurs, small business owners, chamber of commerce events, business associations, industry groups, women groups, networking groups, business schools, any place that a group of small business owners gather is my perfect audience
I love a good motivational speech, but I also know that in about 48 hours I am going to go back to my old ways and lose the enthusiasm. Small business owners need solutions; they don’t have time to search them out for themselves. I believe in not only motivating, but engaging the audience to visualize the outcome. I give them real world action steps that they can take back and be excited to implement is the key to a successful presentation for busy entrepreneurs.
