"The Pittsburgh Speaker Who Unleashes the Potential of Professionals"

Marketing Workshops and Speeches with an Inspirational Edge

What do you get when you
cross a marketing speaker with
 a performance coach?

A marketing speaker who not only shows you
what you need to do to attract more clients
but inspires you to actually do it.

Tired of marketing speakers who either lack substance or bury you in more information than you can handle? In the one case, you walk away feeling short-changed. In the other, you are so overwhelmed that you don't know where to even begin to apply what you just heard.

How much more could you gain from a speaker who not only shares ideas you can use but also primes you to put them into action?  This question has guided me in developing marketing workshops and speeches designed to help professionals both absorb and implement ideas that will boost their business.

As a marketing speaker, I of course deliver the practical, business-building tactics you expect. As a marketing performance coach, however, I also bring to my audiences the kind of expertise not commonly found among marketing experts: a background in moving professionals beyond their resistance to putting marketing into action.

Check out my motivational marketing workshops and speeches below and read how past participants have benefited. While I am primarily a Pittsburgh speaker, addressing groups in western Pennsylvania, I will travel to other states to speak to select groups or organizations.
If you think that one of the programs below would be of interest to your group and want to discuss scheduling it for your next meeting or event, please contact me.

Comments from Attendees of Sam Wieder's Motivational Presentations

You have such presence and poise in front of an audience!  After your program, a friend and I sang your praises on the way to the parking lot - your authenticity, energy, wisdom, obvious joy when we "got" it.  You are a truly engaging speaker and I would say more great things about you but I am running to catch a plane!

Quick-Start Networking

How to Launch Business-Building Relationships
Faster Than You Thought Possible

How long does it take you to launch a relationship that leads to new business? If you're like most people on the networking scene, it may seem as if it takes forever. You attend one networking event after another, make a lot of great contacts, and collect dozens of business cards.  Yet little or nothing comes from all of your networking efforts.
The good news is that there is an easier and more effective way to network.  You don't need to be a brilliant conversationalist or even a natural extrovert.  All it really takes is a little preparation, the right approach, and a simple shift in the mindset that you bring to the networking game.  Learn how you can bring all of this together to launch profitable networking relationships faster than you may have thought possible.
You will learn how to:

  • Embrace a mindset that will double your networking confidence.
  • Start a conversation that lays the groundwork for a business-building relationship.
  • Ask questions that lay the groundwork for a profitable relationship.
  • Make yourself more memorable than 90% of those on the networking scene.
  • Create a feeling of connection with people you meet for the first time.
  • Speed up the networking process while establishing a foundation of trust.
  • Follow up in a way that turns a contact into a relationship.
  • Use a simple, repeatable process to make profitable networking a way of life.

This program is available as either a luncheon/dinner presentation or as a workshop.

Comments from Program Participants

I loved your networking program!  But most of all I enjoyed you. You were thorough, articulate and just downright good!  I have been networking most of my life. Many people still don't understand the concept, but with your help, they will soon learn.

Betty Sarver, Owner, Enterprise Specialties

What a great networking presentation!  I haven't done much networking. And, thanks to you, I now know why. It was always just an experience of ineffective chit-chat and swapping business cards. No meaningful dialog.  After experimenting with your approach yesterday, I can now see how to make a more powerful connection with a "prospect" and create a higher ratio of networking-to-new business opportunities.

Comments from Program Participants

Thank you for this top-notch program that was packed with excellent tips for any professional who wants to discover what it really takes to attract clients through public speaking. Aside from you great content, you clearly showed how to put everyone at ease, introduce natural humor along the way, and establish rapport with your listeners. I was especially impressed with your demonstration of how to interact with a group member to make a point, while subtly highlighting your professional expertise. I can't wait to start applying what I learned in my next presentation.

Sam always delivers great content in an enjoyable way. His ability to engage the audience and actually demonstrate what he is talking about is the mark of a true professional. This, in fact, is his real strength in his Speak and Win Clients workshop. He not only explains how any professional can give a speech that will attract clients, he models what he teaches so you can see his approach in action.

The thing I liked best about Sam's program was that there was not one wasted word or superfluous example; everything in his presentation took the audience step-by-step down the path to understanding exactly what they must do in order to speak and win clients. I walked out of the room fully confident that I would be able to follow his excellent template for success.
