October 2014 Sacramento Speakers Network Meeting

Where: Doubletree Hotel 2001 Point West Way Sacramento, CA 95815

Meeting Fee: $15 for PREPAY ON LINE, $20 AT THE DOOR

Meetup Description: We meet on the first Wednesday each month to discuss the business of speaking and work on ways to help each other find more speaking opportunities. We are open to experienced speakers as well as those just getting started. Our meetings generate a lot of energy and ideas!

We invite attendees to participate and share ideas and challenges since this is how we each find unique value in attending. Also, many of our members are business owners and are finding ways to team up and do business with each other outside of the group. Lots of great networking is happening here!

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a leads group. If your primary objective is to sell something, this isn't the group for you. We are here to help each other grow and prosper!


6:30 to 7:00pm: Informal Networking

7:00 to 8:30pm:

*Introductions and Speaking Engagement Announcements

*Guest Speakers: Sac Speakers first ever TED-style Night!

    the best ever gordon and his topic for his talk How to sell to differing generations was fascinating and entertaining. So glad I attended this by far the most rewarding network group I go to.

    Really fun meeting last night! (And post-meeting upstairs - who knew some of our peeps could both speak AND sing?) Rave reviews about the change in format for the evening. And thanks again Karl and Linda, and especially to Dawa for stepping up at the last minute.

    I REALLY liked the format of tonight's meeting - more than the usual single-speaker approach. I hope we do it more often!
