In today’s distracted world, people have a 9-second attention span. With only 9 seconds to communicate value, we must use our advantages to immediately break through. Sally teaches how to break through the distraction and competition by creating moments of intense focus. When you fascinate a customer or employee, you create exciting moments of connection. Your listener is far more likely remember and value you. In her research, Sally has measured over 200,000 people to identify a scientific approach to personal branding.
