How to Give A Killer Presentation: Driving Funders and Customers To Action

You’ve probably heard the old sales adage “ABC: Always Be Closing,” now it’s time to learn the importance of “ABO: Always Be Opening.” It’s not enough to be the best, to have the best product or service, and hope funders and customers find you. You have to deliver a compelling story that DRIVES them to invest in your endeavor and/or to buy your products/services. Why? Because people buy YOU first, your company/product/service second. And if they don’t buy you during a business first impression, like a presentation, they won’t even glance at your business, even if it’s the next best thing. In a world where dreams are crushed, souls are forgotten, and rust never sleeps, Josh Zepess (the Identity Archaeologist) is on a mission to ensure talented solopreneurs turn every business first impression into a second impression (where the sale happens!) by raising their ROC - Return on Conversation - so they can profit more without grinding more.

Wharton Health Care Management Alumni Association

Wednesday, August 10th, 12 pm- 1 pm ET

The Power of Gratitude

Former President Barack Obama once said, “Organizing humans to do big things globally is always hard.” However, gratitude – as a core value in healthcare – can help achieve big things such as generating more prosocial behaviors, increasing well-being across the lifespan, stronger ties to your communities and a positive moral effect on humankind. This program offers an overview of the power and science of gratitude and the significant impact it can have in your organization. And it starts with one person, you. Our featured speaker is Linda Roszak Burton, ACC, BBC, BS, Founder, Managing Partner of DRW, Inc., a leadership development and executive coaching firm.

Shifting the Care Model: How AI-Driven Proactive Care is Saving Lives, Lowering Costs and Changing How We Treat Patients

Join us to hear from featured speaker, Dr. Kira Radinsky, CEO, Diagnostic Robotics. In recent years, healthcare payers have started integrating AI-powered solutions into their existing systems. From effective triage to accurate intervention matching, these solutions are slashing administrative burdens, massively reducing the cost of care, improving patient experiences, and saving lives. AI-powered solutions have shown to be particularly effective in proactively identifying individual members at risk of becoming cost-bloomers and through combining claims-based methods with historical data on intervention outcomes and learning over time, we are ensuring members are matched with the most appropriate interventions, cutting costs and saving lives.
