About Jaynie L. Smith
Keynote Speaker, Best-Selling Author, Consultant and CEO
Jaynie L. Smith has earned the title: Competitive Advantage Expert. Her interest in the topic began when she was invited to present on competitive advantage. While researching and preparing, Jaynie recognized that many companies exhibited similar tendencies that prevented them from achieving a competitive advantage. She spent years developing a process that teaches companies what really constitutes a competitive advantage in today’s environment and how to achieve that in business.
The competitive advantage process was the starting point for Smart Advantage, Inc. – Jaynie Smith’s marketing and management consultancy. The consulting firm has lead over 300 companies through their proprietary process, which uncovers competitive advantages to differentiate clients from their competition; past client results include growth of 10-40% within 12 months of implementation.
Jaynie’s processes are designed in her best-selling business books Creating Competitive Advantage (Doubleday, 2006), and Relevant Selling (Executive Suite Press, 2012).
Jaynie now focuses on presenting her competitive advantage concepts to companies, associations and CEO groups in the form of keynotes and workshops. Her revolutionary value selling concepts enlighten even the most seasoned business professionals, inspiring them to create a newly targeted content marketing strategy that helps put their business ahead of the competition.
