Professional speakers are on stage 24/7/365, not just when they are literally on stage, but also when they are traveling, networking before and after their speaking engagements, or preparing with clients for their next big presentation; they are equally on stage while potential partners are browsing through their websites, social media, or videos to decide whether they have found the right partner for their next event.
We are always “on,” and our professional and personal reputations are always at risk, so we must be extra careful about how we present ourselves and represent our brand at all times. In today’s highly competitive industry, we have limited time and opportunities to convince buyers in person. In milliseconds, they decide if we are credible, trustworthy, and likable enough to be hired for their next big event.
Like every business owner and professional, we are judged by our appearance, our website, our social media platforms, our pictures or videos, how we answer the phone and whether we respond to emails promptly, how we dress, how we treat clients, whether we are on time for virtual or in-person appointments, and whether we keep our commitments.
Are your members aware of how crucial first impressions are during this process? Are your members equipped with the tools and knowledge they need to understand just how pivotal their reputation is for their business success as speakers, trainers, and coaches?
The most successful professional speakers are aware of this. They reduce uncertainty from the start by appearing, acting, and communicating in ways that instantly earn their clients’ trust, beginning with their first impression and ending with an impactful one.

Within the speaking industry, I have a proven track record of delivering engaging and thought-provoking presentations for fellow speakers, sharing my professional insights with them, and allowing a behind-the-scenes look into my own established speaking business.

There is no other thought leader that is comparable to Sylvie's wisdom and ability to make an audience think. To be a thought leader is one thing, but Sylvie keeps them engaged long after she has left the room because first impressions are a game changer for all industries.
Sylvie is a value-packed speaker giving great content in an inspiring delivery style. A safe pair of hands for any conference!
Sylvie di Giusto knows how to make seven seconds count! She shared how speakers, consultants, and experts could do just that in a recent presentation for the NSA, St. Louis chapter. Sylvie shared how to do a personal inventory that will drive powerful connections with the many people speakers deal with every day in business. We were able to learn specific communication strategies for each. She shared ideas, techniques, and tactics that could be applied immediately to positively affect interest.
I've been going to NSA events for over 20 years. I've benefited from many programs. Sylvie's program was a highlight!
Sylvie helps audiences develop great first impressions. But even more important for me, is that the first impression is borne out in great follow up, a consistent brand message and valuable work. I have experienced all that and more with Sylvie. From her own work to her volunteer work, in every meeting and with every document and project plan, Sylvie delivers. And delivers phenomenally well!
Before Sylvie presented to our chapter, she had been described to me as a "rock star" and "a force of nature." Both are absolutely true. But more than that, she is delightful, personable, fun, glamorous, eminently professional, and a joy to work with. She made me look like a rock star for bringing her in.
I have attended the talk from Sylvie des Gusto at the Global Speakers Summit in Dublin. I was expecting a lot and was amazed at how much she over-delivered. She shared her experience and provided highly relevant content for us as an audience. Her slides are top of the top, her delivery is brilliant, and she helps her audiences to improve. In addition, she is very easy and nice to deal with. An absolute recommendation for your next event.
I attended a speech of Sylvie Di Guisto in Dublin, Ireland, in Sep. 2022 which was outstanding. She impressed with great ideas, which I directly turned into action. Sylvie organized the meeting very well and motivated every participant in a way, that every person felt great. I highly recommend Sylvie for international speeches and I am shure, that you will enjoy it, too. Her English is very good to understand - even for non-native English persons.
If there were only two words to describe seeing Sylvie speak live in person, they would be: “Authentic Engagement”. Often, speakers who try to engage the audience do so in a forced and stilted manner. Not so with Sylvie. It was the ideal mix of content, context, and communication. I cannot say enough about how impressive her presentation is, and how much value I got from it.
Sylvie spoke to one of the most challenging groups for any speaker - a room full of professional speakers. What she did was pure magic! From the moment she stepped on stage until the standing ovation at the end, she has the audience fully engaged. One of the best speakers we have had at National Speakers Association - Georgia Chapter.
Sylvie is an outstanding presenter and communicator. She was not only captivating, but she provided solid information that had the group riveted to her message. She delivered professionally, powerfully and added huge value for those lucky enough to be in her audience. If you have the chance to hear this wonderful presenter, do it! You will be better off because of it and your career will thank you for it.
We were completely engaged and I was mesmerized with the quality and effectiveness of the Image Roadmap each of us created. Anyone who hires Sylvie will undoubtedly be moved to take action to improve not only themselves, but their organization and culture to gain efficiencies. Sylvie's content and presentation style are unparalleled.
I have seen Sylvie speak on a number of occasions and to say she was great would be an understatement. In fact, just look at all of the endorsements she has received from people seeing her speak - and you will see how very special and amazing she is.
She is a polished professional speaker who instantly engaged our professional speakers group with a spot-on, direct presentation about the psychology and importance of first impressions, which is an accomplishment - professional speakers are sometimes not so easy to engage! Sylvie is an adept corporate trainer and delivered career enhancing take-aways and a transformative team-building experience. Highly recommend if you have the chance to work with her!
Sylvie is an impression expert and presented an excellent tool that walked me through critical steps in defining my speaking brand. I strongly recommend Sylvie’s approach for getting clarity and specific action steps to up your branding strategy and get more speaking gigs. Thank you, Sylvie!
I also wanted to say how deeply Sylvie impressed me. I have never witnessed a more well-mannered, gracious and totally lovely person. Sylvie spoke to every person as if they were the only one in the room. She spoke to the entire group with such sincerity, authenticity and generosity it took my breath away.
Her program was well designed, it kept our interest and she made the information very understandable. Although there was a vast amount of info that she delivered, I didn't leave feeling overwhelmed. It felt doable because of the way she delivered it! As a bonus, Sylvie's personality is warm, friendly and it's easy to tell that she is in her business to serve her audiences.
She was terrific!!
There were technical problems beyond Sylvie's control, both before and during the presentation. Sylvie delivered excellent content in a smooth, professional manner, showing no signs of being rattled. We all had a great time learning creative ideas from her. Sylvie is the real deal. She walks her talk. Very much the image of leadership.
Not only did I learn more in her presentation than I have learned in a VERY long time, but the manner in which she offered her information was so impressive. Right from the start, you knew you were in competent hands and the entire audience could feel her warmth and caring from the moment she spoke her first word.
