8 steps to create a value-packed 2-hour workshop
Whats great about having a proprietary system is

you could deliver a 25-minute talk or two hours or a
full day. It all depends on how much time you have for
The key is to provide a lot of content and value so the
audience feels like they want to work with you, but
not give away the how. Follow this template and
you can stretch it to fill as much time as you have for
Tell your compelling story which can take 2-
minutes or you can stretch it to 10 or 15-minutes if you have plenty of time. Throw in
some juicy details to make it very engaging and set yourself up as an expert.
Talk about their struggles and go through the different reasons why this happens.
Spend time describing why people in the audience are not getting the results they want.

individual on the spot. This adds a lot of excitement and can take another 15-minutes
each time you do it.
Each one of these elements gives the audience the opportunity to work through the material
so they dont have to do it later. Plus, it provides real value as people think about what you are
saying and how it applies to them. This anchors the information, reinforcing and deepening the
learning which is extremely valuable.
