HRDQ-U Webinar | 7 Ways to Increase Your Credibility

7 Ways to Increase Your Credibility and Visibility as a Training and Performance Consultant

This On-Demand event was originally presented on February 22, 2017 (60 min)


The first step to building credibility is to demonstrate your expertise and knowledge of the topic you are presenting. This means preparing well, reviewing the content, and staying updated on the latest trends and developments in your field. It also means acknowledging your limitations, admitting when you don’t know something, and referring to credible sources when needed. By showing your competence and confidence in your subject matter, you will earn the respect and attention of your audience.

Credibility is a critical consultant strategy – but it is given, not claimed. Are you younger than most of your competition? Credibility overcomes that. Are you older (and perhaps viewed as too old)? Credibility overcomes that. How much credibility do you have?

Join us for a one-hour fast-paced session with Bob Pike and Trish Uhl as they show you the 7 best consulting strategies that will help you build credibility today!

Attendees will learn

  • Writing – but not just writing – what to write and where it should appear.
  • Joining – but what organizations and for what purpose?
  • Serving – who, how, and most importantly, why?
  • Presenting – where, what, how, and why?
  • Endorsing – who, where, and why?
  • Social Media – what, why, who, and how? And how to avoid getting consumed.
  • Testimonials and Recommendations – who, how, and where they should show up.
