Chris and Katie’s presentation is on “Everything that is watched improves.”
What are the top 3 things you want attendees to take from your presentation?
1. First, it’s so easy to subconsciously assume that the success of our business is simply measured in dollars and cents. But if our goal is to maintain continual growth, it’s got to be more three dimensional than that. We want photographers to become consistently focused on three different areas of their business that they can watch that will lead to sustained growth: relationships, money, and time.
2. Beyond that, we want to empower photographers by giving them systems they’ll need to develop their business. We see that development as having three steps: Watch. Analyze. Grow.
3. Finally, whether you’re an established studio or a new photographer, you can further thrive by systemizing your growth for the long term. We want all photographers- regardless of what phase they’re in – to think long term in how they’re choosing to build and grow their business.
What is the best advice you can give someone who has never attended a Partner Conference?
Come with the excitement and expectation of developing new relationships! Don’t be afraid of going up to new people and introducing yourself. People WANT to meet others and build new relationships!
Besides your own presentation who would you like to hear?
Gene Higa-because he’s a master at setting himself apart and standing out in a crowd. Also, Justin and Mary Marantz because they are two of the most genuine and sincerely caring people who have such a heart for photographers– it really inspires us.
