Presenting YOU: Creating a Compelling Sales Pitch (in-person) AVL


Murphy Funkhouser
BrandStage Consulting

About the speaker:

Just as the spark bursts from the flame, most paths to success do not follow a straight line. After years in business management, sales, and then radio production, I founded the successful branding and marketing agency Kudzu Brands in 2010. In 2021, I sold my agency and opened a private consulting firm BrandStage Consulting.

When I am not creating brand and marketing strategies that help businesses perform, I am on the stage myself. I have written and produced multiple one-woman shows performed at theaters across the country.

My understanding of the stage and the elements of a performance transfer to my understanding of business and branding. I know how to tell a compelling story. I understand how to get an audience’s attention.

I know that your business and your brand must PERFORM if you want to capture the hearts and minds of your ideal audience.

My brand and marketing expertise combined with my experience as a business owner and as a performer makes me the perfect business or brand strategist or speaker for any business or organization looking for ideas, inspiration, or effective strategies for taking center stage in the market.
