Speaking is a powerful platform for so many areas of business:
* If you work inside a business and your role requires you to do regular presentations/talks * If you have your own business and could use Speaking as a marketing tool (ie: speak at local council/networking events to profile your expertise and find new clients) * If you'd like to explore or improve Speaking as a business/career * If you're a blogger and expert in a specific subject area and often get asked to speak at industry events (you could earn money from speaking, or use it as a way to raise awareness about your blog or even sell your online products)
There are many different methods of Speaking such as MC, Keynote, Workshop, Panel, Facilitation...
These meetups are hosted by myself, Yvonne Adele CSP, PSA. (Certfied Speaking Professional, Professional Speakers Association). I started my Speaking career at the time I was appearing as Ms Megabyte on the Today Show many years ago. I've been a full-time Speaker for over 15 years and I'm determined to assist others on their Speaking journey!
To get an idea of the type of content we'll cover, here is my 'Banish Public Speaking Nerves' download : http://bit.ly/BanishNerves
At each Meetup, we'll have Speakers (of course!) but we'll also have small-group discussions on various speaking topics... broadly speaking: Attracting, Negotiating, Crafting and Delivering Speaking engagements.
The kick-off date is yet to be decided... I'd like to decide once we have a few people in this group.... so - are you with me?
