What to Expect
As a 16 year spouse of an EO member who has been in 3 SLP Forums in 3 different Chapters, I know the importance of offering your members a highly impactful event with immense take-away value.
I have dedicated the past 15 years to learning, interviewing, and surveying entrepreneurs and their spouses and have amassed over 102,000 data points that have guided my 5 principal topics:
Sharing more information about the business
Creating a shared vision for your future
Deeply appreciating each other's contributions
Establishing communication protocols
Armed with these baseline concepts, EO members, via a Forum or Chapter Event, will have the opportunity to:
√ participate directly in the research
√ discover how to share information about your business in a way that works for both of you
√ increase spousal buy-in
√ select from a series of exercises custom designed to impact communication based on the research.
Most Recent Speaking Engagements
“Well worth the money! My entrepreneur’s forum decided to participate in a
workshop at Trisha’s home. The working space was extremely cool and worked great for our needs. We were blown away by the knowledge, sincerity and clear passion that Trisha possesses. She is the real deal. Having grown up in an entrepreneurial family and being married to a serial entrepreneur, Trisha ‘gets it’ and it comes across. Every question we posed, she had either data or a personal anecdote to share in response. Each time she was able to direct us to the workbook where we could find a way to discuss a topic or offer some suggestions on how to address an issue. I highly recommend spending some time with Trisha. You won’t regret it!
Mike Bacchus, EO Edmonton
“We love Trisha! After she worked with my husband’s forum, we brought her to
Reno for a Chapter event and workshop. My husband had been apprehensive to talk
with anyone, but Trisha’s open and real personality drew us both to her. When
addressing analytical entrepreneurs, her research gives her presentation a
backbone that can’t be denied!”
Caroline Kaplan, EO Reno
"Like many busy entrepreneurs, finding good balance between work and your
spouse can be a struggle. Trish Harp's event helped us appreciate our roles and
dependence to each other in a fun and enlightening way. Her interactive "live"
surveys were eye opening in seeing that our responses were in alignment with
hundreds of other entrepreneurial couples."
Martin & Rebecca, EO Southwest Virginia
“I flew Trisha in to speak to my clients (all entrepreneurs and their spouses). Her
presentation really spoke to everyone in the room and my clients were genuinely
appreciative. Considering the potentially delicate topic, the evening was full of
laughter and the interactive survey component kept everyone on their toes. Trisha’s
unique research coupled with her personal experience, sincere and warm presence
made the night a truly memorable experience. I would highly recommend her. ”
Randy Gerber, EO Columbus
“My wife and I have been in and out of therapy for over 20 years. I have always
asked if the therapist had a program we could follow. No one ever has. This is the
first time I have been excited to go through a series of exercises with my wife. They
look so easy and pertinent to our situation. Thank you for that.”
