WENDY LIPTON-DIBNER, MA
WENDY LIPTON-DIBNER, M.A. is a five-time bestselling author and internationally recognized authority on business acceleration through impact strategy. President and CEO of Professional Impact, Inc., Wendy’s proven formulas for Business Impact have created measurable results in every industry from healthcare to haircare, telephones to travel, and utilities to securities. Forbes calls Wendy’s strategies, “The secret to success in business,” and Inc. describes her formulaic map as, “Your path to profitable success.”
Wendy’s one-of-a-kind approach to business began as an experiment. Trained in social research at Duke University, Wendy was recruited out for a position at Texas Christian University, where she managed organizational research projects, published multiple articles, and presented her work to the United States Senate where she influenced a major decision that has since helped millions of lives.
The experience at the Senate dramatically affected Wendy’s perspective, inspiring her to leave academia to open her own business — an experiment designed to prove business could be more effective and profitable if we shift operational priorities from making money to making an impact in the lives of all stakeholders.
Defining “impact” as “the measurable difference we make in people’s lives as the direct result of contact with our team, marketing, products, and services,” Wendy’s experiment led to the development of powerful new business formulas that created rapid growth. Her new business grew so quickly, local merchants and national chains began asking her to share her “secrets” and, to Wendy’s delight, her formulas worked across a wide range of industries.
Wendy went on to build 10 more successful retail and service businesses of her own while delivering thousands of programs for Fortune, healthcare, small business, nonprofit, and entrepreneurial organizations worldwide.
Her Focus On Impact® Business Acceleration System includes well over 200 practical, strategic and operational formulas that have been proven to yield high-performance teams, passionate engagement, innovative products and services, influential marketing platforms, increased sales and referrals, and measurable impact internally and externally – often after exposure to a 90-minute presentation!
Wendy sums up her approach this way: “I help executives, experts and entrepreneurs capitalize on the global economy by focusing every aspect of their business on making a measurable difference in people’s lives. When they Focus On Impact, revenues grow exponentially in record time.”
The numbers bear this out. In a follow-up study of more than 1,000 organizations, those who applied Wendy’s formulas reported an average increase in revenues of more than 200% after only 30 days with continued growth upwards of 1,000% in one year.
Dubbed the “Queen of Impact,” Wendy has touched millions of lives through her world-class keynotes, bestselling books, sold-out live events, organizational consulting and trainings, and media interviews. She serves as a trusted advisor to doctors, executives, entrepreneurs, and top influencers.
Wendy dependably brings meeting planners powerful results, with 93% of her audiences reporting they implemented her formulas successfully. What’s her secret? Wendy uses her formulas on her audiences, moving them to action by reminding them:
“We’re all born to make a unique impact in people’s lives and life’s greatest journey is to discover what our impact is and make it happen – before it’s too late and we miss our chance.”
