I finally got the chance to meet Mr. Josiah Go last Saturday at Philippine readers and writers festival. It was an unplanned trip actually, I came from SparkSolutions training when I saw the post of National Bookstore.
Before the start of the seminar, I got the chance to talk to Mr. Go and shared to him about how much I look up to him. He has influenced me a lot! I read his books and blog, my favorite so far is The Rainmakers and currently, I’m at the middle part already of his latest book the Mavericks.
I just love what he does. I want to be Josiah Go for a day and get the chance to talk to a lot of CEOs. I love learning and through his books, I got to learn from his interviews.
I’d like to share with you one thing that I learned from the seminar that really caught my attention.
How do you define value proposition? Personally, this topic is vague for me before. When I joined Pitch Party organized by Tag Cash, this is the question that I wasn’t able to answer.
A value proposition is a promise of value to be delivered, communicated, and acknowledged. It is also a belief from the customer about how value will be delivered, experienced and acquired. A value proposition can apply to an entire organization, or parts thereof, or customer accounts, or products or services. – Wikipedia
Mr. Go shared that in order for you to know if your product or service is giving value, you have to answer this question.
According to him, 9 out of 10 businesses fail to answer this question. He stressed the importance of answering this question.
It was a night full of learnings. I can’t share every detail here but you could attend some of his seminars at Day8.
Meanwhile, I just want to share that I’m helping businesses gets funding. If you need a debt or equity funding, connect to me through my LinkedIn.
