Come and join us for an interactive evening where our focus will be on how to connect with clients through storytelling effectively. Come to network, connect, learn, and have some fun. There will be light bites, non-alcoholic beverages, and great conversation.

Stories sell. Details don’t. A key to a successful enrollment call is to become a skilled storyteller. When you focus on the details of what coaching with you looks like (how many times you will meet, how long the sessions will last, and what your program costs), your potential client will glaze over and lose interest. Their left brain will engage, and all possibilities of what they can accomplish will slip away and will be replaced by their active problem solver who is worried about how to pay for it. When you engage the right brain with stories, your potential client will relax. They will see themselves in the scenario, and they often realize through stories that if coaching worked for others, it could work for them. After Gretchen's presentation, you will leave with your own story that you can use to be more successful with your connection calls. Come learn from a former publicist Master Coach, Gretchen Hydo, as she guides you through the four successful elements of a good story, how to engage a potential client, and have the opportunity to practice your pitch in real-time.

Takeaways include:

  • Learn the four key elements of an effective story
  • Create a story to connect and engage with potential clients
  • Get real-time feedback on your pitch
  • Gain confidence in your client-building skills

Are you looking for new ways to grow your business and expand your network in 2023? The post-pandemic world of work is ever-changing, and it can be overwhelming to figure out how to market yourself effectively as a coach. In our first Chapter Event of 2023, Mary Cravets will be teaching us how to cut through the noise and implement a client generation system that works for you.

Referred to as “a coach approach to marketing,” Mary’s engaging presentation quickly shows audiences how to get better results from their client-generation efforts while feeling more authentic and actually having fun!

In a no-hype environment, participants get immediately implementable tools, including:

  • The 6 key elements that keep you out of the feast-or-famine cycle of client generation
  • How to stop wasting time and money on marketing that doesn’t work so you can attract clients consistently and get your nights and weekends back
  • A client generation system that has a proven track record of helping both new and experienced business owners quickly generate more clients and increase their income by 50% or more.

After Mary’s presentation, we will be facilitating a 30-45 minute speed networking segment where attendees will be able to discuss a range of topics, share tips and resources, and build connections with one another.  We will also be acknowledging and thanking the 2022 ICFLA Board of Directors (BOD) and introducing the 2023 BOD. Join us for an informative and interactive evening, with plenty of time to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones.
