Had to move the date of this event because of meeting room logistics. Hope everyone can still attend!!
We will be having a full slate of new and interesting speakers, all vying for the coveted QS (Qualified Speaker) distinction. Come for the topics (all new, interesting, and entertaining - I guarantee it), but stay and participate in the evaluations. We are building a truly talented team, and based on the goals delivered from all in December, get ready to uplevel your game and experience success you never imagined.
"A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes." Mahatma Gandhi
Since we are thinking big, we will become big! Come join us!
Why present and get Qualified?
• You get access to leads and referred to speaking opportunities;
• You gain access to a powerful mastermind to help you build your business through Speaking. We are here to help you fine tune and master your speaking topic portfolio as well as your skills.;
• You get access to powerful, useful feedback and evaluations to improve your presentations and advance your skills as a Speaker (for work, for business, or for building a professional speaking career));
• Speaking is one of the top ways to build credibility and increase leads for your products or services.
As opportunities for our speakers increase, we need Qualified Speakers to refer and to connect with area organizations looking for speakers. To be referred, or matched to a request, you need to first be a Qualified Speaker. Having a portfolio of speakers on a variety of topics who are available to speak increases the leads we get, and the exposure we get. I regularly get contacted for Speaker referrals.
A Qualified Speaker is someone who has presented at least 1 speech, and has received feedback. We would like to also have those Speakers speak again after implementing the feedback. Those already Qualified, and the leadership of this group will then elect to vote on making someone Qualified. A Qualified speaker is someone who has the skills to represent the group, and has the skills to be a well rounded and professional speaker. The Speaking industry is changing, and we are building speakers that organizations want to work with and enlist.
These presentations are open to all members to evaluate for tips and improvement suggestions for the speakers. We do tape and will make a copy available for the speakers to aid in their practice and development. If you are interested in a role (Master of Ceremonies or Speaker / Presenter, please contact me by replying to this email). All meeting details are communicated via newsletter, and you can sign up for that at the first meeting.
This is a New Year, and has been dubbed the year of 'action'. If you want to make significant progress in your business, career, or life, then you need to step into action! Step up a take a speaking - get Qualified!
You are welcome to come earlier, and stay later to network. It's highly encouraged for perfecting your craft. This is a mastermind group after all!
