    #62 The Overdelivering Obsession of Gifting Guru Jeffrey Brenner

    What was initially intriguing to me was Jeffrey's approach to "doing" and always going "above and beyond" to satisfy and support others.

    He travels extensively but manages to maintain integration with his personal life to remain fulfilled.

    We discuss:

    -Growing up and adoring his families small business in Alabama

    -The value of giving and the meaning behind a gift

    -When gifts represents more than a physical item and rather signifies the value it holds to the recipient (measured in time and experiences)

    -The value of asking the right questions, more important than just selling something

    -Building trust through creating the unexpected

    -Doing not just the basics, but above and beyond the basics



    Jeffrey has a diverse background in sales, marketing and business development in B2B, B2C and D2C channels. Previous companies include Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Ashford.com, Hartmann Luggage and Steuben Crystal.

    #61 No Power in Being Shy, The Unflappable and Uncompromising Koleen Roach, Meetings & Conference Champion

    #61 No Power in Being Shy, The Unflappable and Uncompromising Koleen Roach, Meetings & Conference Champion

    Today's guest is Koleen Roach, a dear friend, a giving person, and an incredibly strategic and socially considerate human being!  She shares the best originating advice she received from a mentor was to remain "unflappable".  Be strong, solid, and flexible to be able to serve as a leader for others.  

    Recently I experienced this first hand as she planned and executed an event for over 1000 people.  Her approach was content, joyous, and present.  She not only knew her participants but also their family members.  She offered extra gestures to ensure everyone was comfortable.  Even when things didn't go as hoped, she remained UNFLAPPABLE. 

    We discuss:

    -Growing up shy and realizing that not talking to people did not provide benefit to anyone

    -While learning from books, she also approaches learning from life similarly... don't make the same mistake twice, learn from experiences, and then turn the page.  There is so much more to learn from future situations and future chapters.

    -Taking risks, lacking fear, having confidence, and course correcting

    -Accepting and listening to others to help them become better and grow

    -Learning to deal with the hard stuff, the conflict, the challenges, and THEN LEARNING HOW TO MOVE FORWARD



    Koleen Roach is the Director of Meetings and Conference Management at St. Paul-based Securian Financial Group. More about Koleen can be found at:
