Delivering What Customers REALLY Want

Keynote Topic #3


How Organizations and Leaders Attain, Sustain, and Regain the Ultimate Level of Distinction


This keynote answers the critical question: What is an iconic organization or leader? And, it will clearly reveal how you can attain, sustain, or regain that status.


Being distinctive in the marketplace used to be the pinnacle of success. In today’s global marketplace, that mountain is significantly more difficult to climb. Add the pervasive presence of social media and the competition for attention is more intense than ever before.


Merely standing out is more challenging than ever. It now has less impact on sustained growth. Today, to become a compelling company, leader, or brand on a positive trajectory, one must attain iconic status.


Scott will share fresh stories on iconic professionals and organizations. You’ll learn there are only two factors upon which customers and employees judge your organization. He will reveal unique examples like the millionaire chimney sweep. You’ll learn about the single-store steakhouse in a mid-sized city that has higher revenue than New York City’s famed Tavern on the Green.


What is the outcome of this keynote presentation? You and your organization will be ready to achieve iconic status through sound research and practical wisdom.

  • The Five Factors of Iconic Performance
  • The ONLY two factors upon which customers will judge you
  • Why much of what you’ve heard – like “under promise/over deliver,” “defense wins championships,” “sell harder” – does not work in today’s marketplace of multiple generations and cultures.
  • Improved results from learning the required steps for Iconic performance
  • Expanded appreciation of the importance of personal responsibility in team success
  • Advanced skills and thinking on the important issue of improving processes
  • Enhanced precision about goals and organizational direction
