Drawing upon her branding expertise, Sally Hogshead created a method to identify how each person is able to captivate their listeners. The Fascination Advantage® is the first communication assessment that measures how others perceive you. After researching over one million professionals, her algorithm can pinpoint your most valuable differentiating traits. The science of fascination is based on Sally’s decade of research with dozens of Fortune 500 teams, hundreds of small businesses, and over a thousand C-level executives.
Her two most recent books, FASCINATE: How to Make Your Brand Impossible to Resist and HOW THE WORLD SEES YOU: Discover Your Highest Value Through the Science of Fascination, were both New York Times bestsellers.

At 27, she opened her first ad agency and her work is on exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum of American History. She frequently appears in national media, including NBC’s TODAY and the New York Times.
