Stand Up to Stand Out 

How to build trust in the workplace and inspire people to take action

Ambassadorship, online content, new strategy, VR, chatbots,… are all impactful when everybody plays along, if not, it’s just a couple of motivated professionals in a meeting room with a great idea.  So time to stand up for your plans and ambitions, turn them into engaging stories so they STAND OUT and inspire your entire organization into taking action.   

Marnick will show in 5 easy steps, as published in his recent book, how any message, told in the right way can inspire and convince people, both internally and externally.   #standuptostandout
