October 2013 Sacramento Speakers Network Meeting

here: 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 Speaker: Rick Deutsch - How to Get Booked to Speak on Cruise Ships

Does free travel to exotic locales for you and your companion sound good? Learn how to be a lecturer on Cruise ships. There are over 50 cruise ships that continuously sail the seas. From Alaska, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and all points in between. They are always seeking experts in a variety of Enrichment topics as well as people versed in Destination talks. Do you know all about Rome? Are you an expert in archaeology? Can you teach bridge? If you can entertain an audience for 45 minutes in an “Info-tainment” mode, this might be a nice perk for you. The Cruise Directors are seeking to keep passengers entertained while the ships are not in port. Your expertise may be what they are looking for. Learn from a veteran cruise ship lecturer.

About the Speaker:
Rick Deutsch is retired from a Computer Marketing career in Silicon Valley. A member of the National Speakers Association, he gives over 40 presentations a year and has been speaking on cruise ships for more than seven years. Rick speaks on many lines, including Crystal, Seabourn, and Silver Sea. He teaches how to obtain cruise ship speaking assignments at colleges, service clubs, private consulting and is a principal of SpeakOnCruises.com

He has appeared on television, Public Radio, ABC radio, and has written articles for several publications. He’s written the only guide book to Yosemite’s Half Dome and has sold over 10,000 copies.

*Goals and Challenges - How can we help you? We will draw names for the opportunity to share your challenges in the 5-minute spotlight.

*Lead Sharing - Do you know about a group or event that needs a speaker?

*Drawing for Prizes - Optional: bring a prize for the drawing!

    A good group as always very informative with great "raffle-prizes". :-) Maybe when I'm older I'll work the cruise line business!

    I was disappointed that the limited information about speaking on cruises was saved for the last 20 minutes of the talk.
