    Jeanne Bliss Keynote Topics

    Jeanne learned about humanity in business by watching her Dad in his Buster Brown shoe store in Des Plaines, Illinois. He “shoe’d” a generation of children, and their children’s children, and the memory of his care for not only for the tiny little feet, but for moms and legions of families he cared for over the years, earned him a place in the story of their lives. So much so, that when he retired a line of people THREE-BLOCKS LONG stood to tell him how buying shoes would never be the same. The foundation of “Experience” is MEMORY creation. The admired companies start here. They focus on how their people, actions and overall behavior of their company establishes how they’ll be remembered. Knowing how you want people to remember you, building how you will deliver those memories, and then living those characteristics and behaviors yields what Jeanne Bliss describes as prosperity of the human spirit and financial prosperity.

    In this keynote the audience will learn both the art and science of delivering memories that will make people stand in line for your experience, your product and your people. Learn how to make memory creation the currency of your brand, and how to elevate your company to delivering moments that pull people toward you and make your people into MEMORY MAKERS.
