Chief Visionary’s Message
Where’s Your Customers Pain and Where’s Your Beef?
By Steve Ramerini
In October, Christophe Morin, a brilliant businessman and the author ofNeuromarketing, Understanding the Buy Buttons in Your Brain, returned to COMPELCEOs for the second in a three-part series workshop. If you were one of the unfortunate few who missed Christophe, he will be back in 2016.  
Christophe’s workshop showed us how to develop a proven strategy for differentiating our business using the “pain, claim, gain” technique. This motivated me to dig up the infamous 1980s Wendy’s “Where’s the Beef?” campaign. Take a quick look for a good laugh:
Wendy’s “Where’s the Beef” Campaign
Several of COMPELCEOs’ groups are following Christophe’s neuromarketing process. If you want to find your customer’s pain (and your “Beef”), check us out hereand join us for the Third Annual Business and Economic Summit (details below). At the Summit, you will have a chance to participate in global keynote speaker Michael Allosso’s “mind blowing” workshop. You will also break bread with the most inspiring business people on Long Island. After lunch you can take COMPELCEOs for a test drive by attending an actual working session led by COMPELCEOs Chair Jack Signorelli.
Check out what COMPELCEO members have to say about us here and join us for the Summit, which is the most COMPELling event of the year.
All my best,
Steve Ramerini
Chief Visionary Officer
PS:  Christophe is also a fan of Cowboys Herding Cats”!
