Budding entrepreneurs face down a variety of challenges as they work to transform an innovative idea into a real-world success. However, before they can worry about cash flow management or hiring quality employees, they need a product or service that stands out.
As a speaker, Srinivas takes his audience through a series of steps, at the end of which, they’ll have a clear idea of their unique value and how to promote it. With his guidance, the audience will:
- Rewrite industry best practices. Leave behind “rules” that no longer serve you and create ones that do.
- Develop creative confidence. Overcome fear and doubt to execute new ideas.
- Cultivate creative habits. Practice daily habits that promote innovative thinking and creative breakthroughs.
- Identify the “magic moment.” Know when the customer falls in love with your product or service.
Srinivas believes in finding out what’s truly unique about a company, individual, product or service. After all, if a business can identify something they offer that no other business does and effectively communicate that value to customers, then they can kiss competitors goodbye.
