    Thrive: Turning Uncertainty To Competitive Advantage
    Competitive, challenging and constantly changing – that is today’s marketplace! To grow and compete you need a new perspective and a new approach to sales, marketing and business growth. In this high-energy, power-packed session, Motivational Speaker Meridith Elliott Powell shares the innovative strategies you need to redefine disruption, put you in the driver’s seat, and turn uncertainty to your competitive advantage.

    Based on research from her newest book, “Thrive: Turning Uncertainty to Competitive Advantage“, where Meridith studied nine companies (who started in the late 1700s to early 1800s) that are still thriving in business today. Businesses that have survived World Wars, Economic Depression, and yes, even a Pandemic. Her research revealed a powerful methodology for what it takes to navigate change at this level, to find opportunity in crisis, and how to inspire your members to move from reacting to change to driving it.

    In this program, Meridith walks you through the steps you need to strategically move forward, proactively prepare for disruptions, standout from the competition, and dominate your marketplace. You’ll leave this session with a personal strategy that ensures you have what you need to stay razor-like focused, highly flexible and ready to turn uncertainty to your competitive advantage.

  • Summary
    Research shows that we would rather know something bad is going to happen rather than live with uncertainty. What’s your response to these uncertain times?

    Now think about that . . . What if you could flip the script? ?

    Success in today’s marketplace requires a new set of skills, a new strategy, and a new methodology. I’m convinced, the unknown can be the engine that propels your business forward, drives innovation, and creates new opportunities for greatness.

    Like you, I’m sure, I kicked off 2020 believing that it would be my best year ever. I finished out the end of February exceeding my best two months of any previous year.

    ?️ My calendar was packed. One week later, everything changed.

    It was the week of March 7. I got the call that my next speaking engagement was going virtual. I flew home, sat in front of my computer, and watched every event on my calendar cancel.

    ? I freaked out.

    I had a decision to make. Was I going to implement the steps that I had spoken and written about? Or was I going to sell everything I own to make ends meet?

    ? I took action.

    I practiced what I preached. By June 1, my business began turning around. By September, I was back on track.

    ?‍♀ The good news is you can thrive!

    What if you could use today’s unpredictability to drive your organization’s growth?

    ➡️ It’s Time to Lean into Uncertainty

    In my search to discover how uncertainty impacts business growth, I developed my powerful 9 Step Formula for Thriving in Uncertainty™.

    I want you to apply this methodology to your business, so you can get on track to have your best year yet!
