The Sacramento Speakers Network April 2009 Meetup

Meetup Description: ***Please Note: We are meeting at: Luau Gardens restaurant on Arden Way. The buffet rate is $15.50 per person and includes a soft drink. All attendees are required to purchase dinner in order for us to meet at this location. Thank you. 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 all levels of speakers. 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! But 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!
MEETING AGENDA: 6:30 to 7:00pm: Networking and Dinner 7:00 to 8:45pm as follows: *Introductions and Speaking Engagement Announcements *Andrea Hurst, Literary Agent, will discuss "How to Get Published or Publish a Book to Grow Your Business". *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! Optional Dues: Voluntary members dues are $12 per year. These dues cover costs such as covering the cost of dinner for our guest speaker. If you feel you've received value from this group, please consider contributing. You may do so here. Please be sure to tell a friend who might also enjoy our group. Join us too at:

    This is an absolutely wonderful network. I have learned so much from my fellow speakers who are willing to share their expertise. Stephanie does a great job in guiding us and getting great speakers.

    Excellent speaker. Enjoyed talking with participants, and found the advice of those more experienced in modern publishing very useful

    This was my second time at the group and, just like the first time, felt that it was well worth my 2 hours. This meeting was very informative on the book authoring process and expectations. Good meetup!

    Thank you for a wonderful speaker. I learned a lot about a subject I had never explored much before, so it was quite enlightening. I must admit that only downfall to the whole night was the food. It would be nice to find a restaraunt to hold the meeting in which has food that is edible.

    It opened up a new thought process about what I need to do before I really start to become a paid speaker on a regular basis. I am looking forward to Branding next month.
