Dissecting the Triggering Event


Dissecting the Triggering Event

Regardless of your primary discipline, all CEPAs should be promoting the use of a Triggering Event to begin the value acceleration process. Why? Because it triggers a flurry of action. Using an example of a Triggering Event completed in 2020, in this webinar, Chris Snider, the creator of “The Triggering Event” and the Value Acceleration Methodology will dissect key deliverables and metrics that make a Triggering Event so compelling and intriguing that it triggers action 70 percent of the time.


Learning Objectives:

  • Who participates in a Triggering Event?
  • Compelling metrics collected and presented to the client and why they trigger action
  • The Deliverable – what is included?
  • The Deliverable Workshop – how to present the results
