Selling in a Hyper-Personalized World
What if you knew exactly what each of your constituents (customers, members, patients, vendors, employees, etc.) REALLY wanted? Would that help you develop customer loyalty? If you could anticipate what each person wanted from you before they told you, how would knowing that change your approach?
Through use of big data and digital connections, you can individualize relationships with any client or prospect you value. A hot topic in marketing today is “hyper-personalization.”
This is the process of gathering a deep level of information on your constituents and then using that information to create loyal and valued relationships. This goes way beyond installing a CRM system! Scott has been on the vanguard of digital marketing techniques since digital marketing was born.
In this session, he combines his custom knowledge of your industry and digital marketing savvy to show attendees several new methods for driving business. This includes using the process of “mapping the customer journey” to detail every touchpoint in relationships and how either a human or technology connection can be used to create a fantastic experience.
As a special bonus, Scott can provide sample templates and tools that are used to complete these processes, so attendees can create a strategic plan for their organization.

He will cover what are the “latest and greatest” tools and techniques. It doesn’t matter if it’s B2B or B2C: every organization needs to build better digital relationships with their constituents (customers, members, patients, vendors, employees etc.).

Creating Balance In a New Workforce Environment
Work from home was a lifesaver in 2020, a catalyst that showed leaders they can provide workforce flexibility, and now the challenges begin…
The return to the office is a welcome sign in the fight against COVID and a relief to leaders who are eager to get back to the familiar ways they manage their teams. In Oklahoma, leaders and employees, alike, called digital platforms the “saving grace” for their company, allowing them to shift to a distributed workforce rather than shut down completely.
More than survive, adapting to remote work enabled many to thrive. The experience will not easily be forgotten, and mounting data shows not everyone wants to.
Nearly two-thirds (63 percent) of people don’t want to go back to working full-time in the office, according to an Oklahoma statewide case study of work and digital communications during COVID. Many participants in the multisector study prefer to work remotely two to three days per week, indicating a permanent shift in the workforce to a new way of life.
Remote work was more successful than expected, but in 2021 the challenges begin.
Best Format/Placing in a Conference: This is a another very popular topic of Scott’s. It’s a very versatile topic and can be placed anywhere in a conference or an organization’s meeting. It’s great for the opening keynote or closing keynote of an event. This topic is very relevant, and it is on every leaders’ mind in every industry.
Notes for the meeting planner: This is a talk that is both timely and practical. Scott combines highlighting a few new trends that people might be aware of and adds a few over the horizon trends that are completely new. To this Scott adds the delivery of practical technology tools, or concepts that can be used immediately.
The challenges Scott will address and provide actionable steps to overcome in this speech are:
Uneven willingness to work full time in the office
Distrust of workers not willing to work in the office
Abuse of a flexible workforce model
Creating desired cultural elements and building teamwork with new and remote workers
The emerging class system: Resistant, Reluctant, Rewarded
Reimagined and renovated central office space
The Rise of Machines
The rise of machines is both exciting and scary for some people. It shouldn’t be “scary” and the more you learn about the subject, the more exciting it is. Machine Intelligence is poised to dramatically reshape all organizations and industries. It will give organizations better insight into their constituent outreach and back-office processes while allowing them to run smarter and leaner.
Scott will cover the Machine Intelligence Ecosystem – Robotics, Smart Sensors, Cognitive Computing, AI, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning.
We are in an era when technology is systematically integrating more and more into our lives. He will show how MI is changing your industry and things leaders need to know about it.
Plus, does every leadership team within an organization need to build a Machine Intelligence strategy? Scott will give his insights on that and more in the fascinating topic.

Best Format/Placing in a Conference: This is a “very cool” opening or closing speech for an event or conference. It can be designed to have the desired impact you want and/or need to “top last year’s” event. It can be customized to start a conference off with a “bang” or “keep them talking on their way home after the event.” It is also a great topic for a breakout session.
Notes for the meeting planner: This speech is constantly changing because of the rate of change in the field of Machine Intelligence.
Scott continues to stay on top of innovations in Machine Intelligence, thus this speech is different every time.
