Included at no extra charge are the following items:
To promote attendance and enthusiasm, I can produce a 60-second video to help sell the conference. More examples are on our Video page.
Customization of the Presentation
I will talk to leaders of your organization to learn about the topics that most concern the audience members and adjust the presentation accordingly. I emphasize topics within my normal range of “keeping up,” such as consumer spending, interest rates, export markets, etc.
A great way to continue Bill’s work connecting the dots between the economy and business decisions is to follow his presentation with a panel that Bill moderates. You might bring in a CFO, CMO, COO, and HR director, and have Bill ask questions about how his economic outlook impacts decisions in their areas.
Network with Attendees
Schedule permitting, I will attend receptions and other networking opportunities at your meeting so that your attendees can ask one-on-one questions. I’ll also learn more about their interests and concerns.
Conversation with Management Teams
After my presentation, I can meet informally with your management team or board of directors so that they may ask in-depth questions. (No extra fee if scheduled in advance for the same day as the main presentation.)
To keep economic issues alive, I will grant a free 12-month license for my monthly newsletter. You may insert my newsletter into your own communication vehicle, email it to employees or clients, or I can email it out as requested by meeting attendees.
When a client wants detail that I do not routinely keep up on, I will research the area for a negotiated fee. I can usually come up to speed fairly quickly on a wide range of economics-related topics. In the past, I have done this for specific foreign countries and state economies. I will decline topics too far afield from my regular work.
When you want my speech presented multiple times, we can negotiate a quantity discount. For example, when the client’s markets are one or two hours apart, I could do a breakfast presentation in one place, a lunch meeting at another, and an afternoon reception at a third. Fees are negotiated depending on topic variety and location.
In addition to a presentation, I can attend your entire planning retreat. I’ll offer up insights and ask questions throughout the entire time, or upon request from the leader. Often a team benefits from having an outsider raise issues and ask questions.
