2. What do you think you're selling?
3. What does your client think you're selling?
4. The language customers want to hear.
5. Do you know what your client understands?
6. At what point do you lose your customer ?
7. How to beat the glaze eye effect.

Just a quick note to thank you for your presentation at our firm's Women in Tax luncheon last week. Your presentation was very warmly received and several people mentioned to me how much they enjoyed it.
Your comments were inspirational, and at the same time, the way in which you presented the need to balance both work and personal goals was realistic and honest so as to make it very easy for us to relate to your message. You really are a great speaker. Thank you once again.
Ann Previtera, Partner, Tax & Legal Service
