Woburn Businessman Added to National Speakers Association Roster
The National Speakers Association (NSA) recently accepted Evan Hackel of Ingage Consulting, a leading consulting firm in the franchise arena. During his 25 years in working with franchises, Evan Hackel has developed a reputation as an expert on engagement and how it improves performance. With his recent acceptance to the NSA, Hackel will be taking this message to a broader audience.
“The franchisee member who is engaged tends to be more successful on an individual basis and is also the best sales agent an organization can have in attracting potential franchisees,” said Hackel, who founded the Woburn, MA-based Ingage Consulting in 2009, Massachusetts. “In joining the NSA, I would like to continue bringing that message to franchise organizations. I would also like the opportunity to speak to other types of organizations in both the public and private sector on how engagement can raise the performance level from top to bottom.”
To be accepted to NSA’s Professional Speaker roster, candidates must meet the organization’s requirements based on stringent criteria. Hackel met that criteria though his experience giving keynotes, meeting and workshop facilitation and breakout presentations and other speaking engagements.
Hackel has previously been tabbed as keynote speaker for a variety of companies and organization types, ranging from Fortune 50 companies to professional associations. The audience sizes have also varied, with Hackel speaking at smaller, interactive workshops to addresses for several thousand.
In particular, Hackel’s message resonates with franchise organizations. His next featured speaking engagement will be at the Franchise Operations Performance Summits (OPS), the only franchise executive conference dedicated to operations performance excellence as well
Beyond topics relevant to franchise organizations, Hackel is known for his energetic and interactive presentations.
“Evan showed how franchisees grow stronger as the organization grows stronger, and how the organization grows stronger as franchisees grow stronger. That struck a credible nerve that everyone understood,“ said Steven C. Bursten, CEO and chairman of Exciting Windows! “We had more favorable comments than any convention speaker in our eight years of franchising. In fact, last year’s presentation was transformative. Business owners who never appreciated what it means to pull together “got it”, and have been more supportive than ever this year.“
Some of the topics on which Hackel has spoken on in the past include:
- Better Together: Understand the most effective ways to tackle individual agendas and dysfunction in your organization.
- The Need for Change: Learn how to address the paradigm shifts your organization needs to make to ensure long-term success.
- The Power of Collaboration: Explore the power and possibilities of collaboration that lead to better ideas and a greater passion for success.
- The 4 “Ps” of Selling: Learn to think differently about selling by focusing on the four “Ps.”
- Overcoming the Price Objection: Leave with real-world tools to better deal with difficult customers and price objection.
Hackel is available for keynotes, breakout and facilitation sessions, and a variety of speaking engagements. You can contact him directly at 781-569-5900.
