Strategy Workshops & Speaking

Our strategy workshops will provide you with the tools you need to elevate your thought leadership and build your brand to make an impact for your business. These workshops, led by the Zilker team, focus on building thought leadership through impact over ego, developing media skills, and harnessing the power of thought leadership to establish trust in your business.

Our team frequently speaks and leads events with organizations such as Harvard Medical School, TEDx,  Entrepreneurs Organization (EO), Women’s Presidents Organization (WPO), Young Presidents Organization (YPO), and JPMorgan Chase on the power of thought leadership.

Online Brand Audits

We’ll also provide actionable insights on how you can take control of your online presence, using your digital footprint to craft the first impression you need to start building trust in your brand.
