The Program:

You work hard. You love what you do, but you wish it were easier. It seems you’re continually recreating the wheel. You’d like to be better able to create systems for your speaking, training, consulting business so you don’t forget key steps that would save you time and make you more money.

Patrick has found the secret — and he believes it will streamline your business and help you create bigger results with less effort. Patrick’s secret to running a long-term, successful business is the repeatability of your success — creating systems, methodologies, recipes, processes, procedures, and practices that leverage your time and your money and allow you to work less and make more.

Do you know what works and what doesn’t when it comes to getting and keeping clients, and expanding your work with them? Are you using easy-to-follow, thought-through, result-oriented systems (e.g., checklists, tracking sheets, questions for before, during and after a client engagment to get more business, methods to manage your finances, tools to create/customize programs in less time) that make your business run effectively?

You will learn:

  • the value of creating systems for keynotes, workshops, sales, coaching, marketing, referral, repeat business, finance
  • how to define “the next level” for your business and use “systems” to get there
  • how to uncover the hidden success components you already have in your business and capitalize on them to build them into a repeatable process
  • a three-step foundation model to build your “repeatable success systems”
  • two strategic thinking concepts that will shift your business
  • the key concept that drives “more with less”
  • examples of various systems Patrick uses for building keynotes, workshops, and coaching; sales/marketing; referrals; repeat business, tracking budgets/finances ... and how you adapt them to your business
  • how to create and apply a continuous improvement system to ensure future success
