with Bob Pike, CSP, CPAE

Do you want a sole practice - or do you want a business that multiplies your impact—and can later be sold? Regardless of your answer there will be immediately usable content for you to take your business to the next level.

In this session Bob will share how he positioned himself as an expert long before he had written his first book. He'll give you the proposal process and template that enabled him to write a proposal in 2 1/2 hours that generated over $2.5 million dollars in 3 years. He'll share the process he's used to write more than 30 books that generate between $30K and $90K in royalties yearly. And he'll reveal his tech side which include writing and implementing an internet marketing strategy for his business back in 1991!

And all of this will be delivered so you find at least 3 action ideas that you can implement personally and immediately to trigger greater results for you—and your clients.

Three key takeaways:

  • How to develop your content so others can deliver it—yet you maintain control!
  • Consistent content creation - for both promotion and product
  • A powerful proposal process that gets results—and minimizes fee negotiation and much much more.

Bob Pike, full-time trainer/speaker/consultant, developed two multi-million-dollar training companies for others in his first ten years and then started his own. Within three years of generating $383,000 as a solopreneur, he had three full-time people delivering his content and hit $1,000,000 in sales. His book Master Trainers Handbook, based on the results he was delivering to clients, is now in its fourth edition. Today it is the all-time best-selling train-the-trainer book with over 330,000 copies sold.

His monthly newsletter for training and performance still has more than 10,000 readers. More than 125,000 trainers on five continents are graduates of his two-day train-the-trainer program.

He is the author of more than 30 books and a dozen video training programs in the field. He has worked in more than 25 countries helping his clients "Unlock learning, Unleash Performance". By the time he sold the Bob Pike Group in 2013 he had generated more than $80 million in sales—90% of which was sold and delivered by others.

He is the only person to hold the CSP, CPAE, and CPLP Fellow (Certified Professional in Learning and Performance) designations. In 2007 he received the Instructional Systems Association's "Thought Leader Award" and was named one of the 20 most influential people in training and performance by Training
