Risha Grant took a lot of heat Wednesday on social media from the Black Enterprise Magazine article published from a question on her FB Post about what black people do that irritate white people.

She asked this question because she already understands as a black woman and D&I Professional what white people do that irritate black people. She wanted to have equal balance for a major client project she was working on and asked to see if her white friends would list anything she wasn’t aware of.

Risha goes on to mention "A lot of black people are asking “why should we care?” and saying that this is bad journalism. I say this with love for my people but last time I checked, good journalism was getting both sides of every story to accurately report the issue. My platform is about creating understanding & moving the needle in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. So...sorry, not sorry!"

On another note, Black Enterprise Writer, Lydia T. Blanco, wrote an awesome feature on her & how black women can build allies in the workplace. It also offers some context around the article.

Risha D. Grant featured in Black Enterprise magazine with a very interesting counter to an article previously published; they wrote a list of things that white people should never say to their black co-workers.

Now, Risha Grant, a public relations professional and diversity and inclusion expert, asked white people on her Facebook feed, to list the things that black people say or may do that annoy them.

An interesting read with some insights into workplace culture many may not recognize as #unconciousbias.

Who would have imagined that working at Boston Pizza almost 20 years ago would result in one of the nicest people building our website???

After months of work, countless late nights and early mornings, @spiztech busted down the wall that was our landing page and revealed our website.

6degreespeakers.com went live August 23rd 2018 and we couldn't be more proud, or grateful. And tired.

Busy lady, last week Risha finished off her trip to DC with an interview with Bruce Johnson WUSA 9, on his program Off Script. They start the discussion based on the FBI's release of data saying hate crimes spiked 17 percent in 2017, and then moved into some ideas and what we as individuals can do help change the conversation.

Too often we're listening waiting for that moment to "jump in" instead of listening to understand. We need to look for commonalities, not differences says Risha Grant.

You never know what may have happened onsite, so before you fly to the event, make sure you have these essentials!!

The Pre-Event Packing List:

Presentation on separate USB drive (just in case)

Adapters, chargers, cables, and plugs for all your equipment, in any country

Slide advancer: you might not be able to trust the one onsite

Microphone: if you have a preference, just bring your own

A copy of your intro, printed and inside your bag, AT ALL TIMES, just in case

The Golden Rule (in our opinion) is this one line:

**There is no DRAMA onsite, ever.**

It's never about you, it's always about them, especially the days of the event.

Things you should know long before the day of the event:

How are you getting from the airport to the venue? Cab, limo, airport shuttle?

What team member is tracking the flight?

What is the weather? Will you need an umbrella? Sweaters? Polar bear suit?

Is the venue the same as the hotel?

When is the AV check time and where? A quick brief on rehearsal and show times.

Who’s greeting you and where?

No last-minute changes: no last minute special requests ie: extra hotel room, extra night, extra guests. Your meeting planner is at the height of months of work leading up to this day, do not add to their workload or stress level.

Road Rules for Speakers Day 2...

So you've won the gig, booked the pre-event call, and now it's time to book flights etc.

Always book flights with one back-up in each leg, in case of missed connections there are viable options for still getting to the event on time.

Try and book direct with the airlines, Expedia & Kayak have numerous issues when it comes to customer service mid-way through, you’re their customer not the airlines so if you run into trouble the airline can’t help you.

Put the flights on your calendar so your manager or assistant can see them and email them the confirmation to supply to the client.

Make sure there’s an early arrival and late check out in place at the hotel.

Setting yourself up for success the moment a client is considering you is one of the best laid plans a speaker can have.

Some things you can offer:

PRE-DECISION (Pre-Booking) CALLS (aka “Win the Deal” calls) - this is a wonderful way to assure the fit is right, plus a great way to offer suggestions based on your expertise.

Won the contract? Awesome! Now schedule the PRE-EVENT CALL: ask for a content call 2-3 weeks before the event, this is where you get to really dive in and fine tune your presentation based on what your client needs!

These are just 2 of the many tips and tools a speaker can offer and use to help ensure they're top of mind in the selection process, plus it begins to align them as a valuable resource to the client!

In your quest for Awesome, are you using the right technology and tools to get what you want faster?

What we have been discussing so far is all about MINDSETS. Hard work is about your perspective. @ Dan Waldo shows his audiences easy to obtain and operate methods -- some practical applications you can get busy with.

Why use technology? Why not???

Momentum is your greatest weapon in the game of being successful.

Failure is not having a plan to succeed.

You need a formula/tools to deliver surprise and delight. Let us help you write that formula!

The 'IF' Factor Keynote from Dan Waldschmidt - A quick overview of the Spartans!
How a small force stood up to a mighty King based on the word "IF"...

Nov 7, 2018

@danwaldo's The 'IF' Factor

The biggest part of the story of Laconia is that it's the home of Sparta, and we all know the legendary story of the '300' Spartans.

Dan uses this historic story plus a clip from the movie entitled "What is Your Profession?". This tiny force stood up to the greatest army of its time based on the simple word of 'IF', after they were threatened with utter destruction and annihilation of everything they know IF they didn't surrender.....IF.....

That one word fueled them to march out and meet the army head on, and they brought all their "professionals" with them.
Those who live with a WHY never define themselves by their job, but instead by the impact they want to have in the world.

What is your Profession?

Want to get ahead? Move the needle on your goals? When your mission is big enough; instead of taking the easy way out, try choosing the outrageous option.

Dedication and hard work help you make better decisions, it drives you to have focus. Ever notice when you are busy, you tend to get more done? You automagically (yes that's a word lol) work smarter. You are already hustling and have momentum. Intensity is what makes the difference with your work.

This is one of the many practical takeaways @danwaldo shares with audiences in The 'IF' Factor keynote!

3000 years ago the Greeks gathered together to talk about ideas for growth and to debate the latest business philosophies of the day.
One of the stories they would share was about one of their city states and the greatest king who had ever lived.

@danwaldo uses this historic story for his keynote, and helps audiences learn how and why this tiny force stood up to the greatest army of its time based on the simple word of 'IF'. Want to be entertained and inspired, and learn actionable next steps and new habits that lead to more winning? That's exactly the superpower Dan Waldschmidt delivers in each keynote.

Who is going to be the next generation in the workforce? Paul Taylor's keynote titled The Graying of America and the World can tell you.

Pauls' talk describes the social, economic and political dimensions of this "gray tsunami" that's aging out, and compares the challenges facing the United States with those in Europe and East Asia, where populations are changing even faster.

Interesting takeaway from this is an analysis of why fertility rates dropping so fast in America and around the world, and what this means in business.

"I love reading spreadsheets and graphs, and analyzing it all day" said almost no one ever! Except analysts! Are you one?

Probably not, so how do you read data on how to market to the coming generations? What are their spending trends, political impacts, what do you do or who do you go to predict outcomes?
Mosaics have grown up in an online universe that results in data, and Paul Taylor helps identify and explain what the numbers mean and what's coming down the pipe; and what you can do to ride the wave!

Paul Taylor explains how today's teenagers are the transitional generation to an America that will be "majority minority" by 2044. For them, diversity is more that a demographic trait; it's a core value. Attitudinal surveys indicate they are the most liberal generation in American history on matters of race, gender and sexual identity.

His presentation on The Mosaic Generation looks at their likely impact on the nation's politics and economy as they become the dominant generation in the workforce and electorate between now and mid century.
