A Problem-Solving Approach to Leadership:

There are hundreds of corporate speakers out there, and each one of them brings their own perspective and unique strengths. So, what makes an organization hire one speaker and not another? Is it the reputation, skills, and strength of the speaker? True, these factors matter, but there’s something else that determines the choice. Here’s the one question that organizations need to ask before hiring a speaker:

“How can you, as a speaker, help us with the problem we are facing in our organization?”

Great speakers are like great startups, the power of their words disrupts a situation and helps overcome obstacles. Having a problem-solving approach and culture is fundamental to the functioning and success of good leadership, and it’s one of the many qualities that makes Sameer a unique speaker.

One instance was when he volunteered to speak about the significance of maintaining a digital reputation at the Legal Marketing Association.
