Keynote: ‘STAND OUT!’

Unleash Your StorySelling Genius

Opening or Closing Keynote

THEMES: StorySelling, Leadership, Inspiration, Sales

STAND OUT! is a keynote that highlights the on-ramp B2B businesses must take in order to shift their buyer’s indecision, master influence, and build massive trust through a modern-day, story-powered selling approach.


  1. Ensure your people build on the brand you have established
  2. Have your team lessen their reliance on product talk and increase buyer talk
  3. Identify the key stories every seller must tell to build out their commercial conversations and lead the field.

Bernadette’s STAND OUT! philosophy addresses the following 5 themes to help you Unleash Your StorySelling Genius faster and more efficiently:

✅ SELL CHANGE!  Most people don’t mind change, it’s changing they resist and to sell change is to mitigate risk and help broker a decision. Nobody really cares about your story, they care about theirs! 

✅  TRUST AND INSPIRE! In this post pandemic economy, it’s time to evolve the sales-centric speak towards conversations that have more depth, emotion and connection because that’s where decisions are really made. Why you? Why now and Who cares?

✅  OWN YOUR OUTCOMES! When we get intentional in our conversations, we are more focussed and when we are more focussed, we create success.  Clarity on our outcomes is what ultimately drives incomes.

✅  RE-IMAGINE NEGOTIATIONS  – Do you want to make your buyer sigh with frustration or sign with anticipation. Then let’s call the elephant in the sales room and ask, ‘are we telling stories through our biased lens, or seeking stories through our buyer’s lens?’

✅  YOU BUY YOU! – The stories we tell ourselves can be crippling so become world class at knowing your value because the first sale must always be to yourself and the buyer, second.
