What we're about

The International Speaker Network is a great place for authors, experts, trainers, coaches, consultants, entrepreneurs, business professionals and professional speakers to network, share resources and exchange ideas. Whether you are an experienced speaker or you're just getting started, we invite you to join us for a meeting unlike any other you have attended before. We meet twice monthly via zoom which is why we now encourage professionals from around the world to join us. As of 2022, we also hold an annual conference (2022 virtual), subscribe for FREE and watch the meetup page and/or your email for more info!

The International Speaker Network is focused on the business of speaking and how to monetize more of what you're doing in your business or your speaking. The majority of our members are business professionals or owners plus speakers or budding speakers, authors and budding authors and therefore we all benefit by sharing resources, discussing strategies for generating more business and speaking engagements, networking and building relationships within the group--all while learning advanced business skills.

Are you ready to become a public speaker? 
Do you know that speaking is the #1 way you can get clients when you have your own business?
Speaking is something that every entrepreneur should be focusing more on: 

- how to do it
- what to speak about
- how to incorporate it into your business
- how to get leads from speaking
- how to sell from stage or how to sell from a webinar
But the problem is that very few entrepreneurs actually do this. OR they do it but don't really understand how it can correlate to sales in their business. 
Speaking is something that you want to get some training with on:

- how to create your talks and presentations
- how to own the stage
- how to create a speaker sheet
- how to get speaking gigs and opportunities
- how to present yourself during the speaking gig
- how to gather leads during speaking gigs 
- in person or virtually
- how to sell from stage 
- how to follow up effectively (most of your sales will come in the follow up!) 
- how to present yourself as a speaker on your website and online social profiles
- and soooo much more!
We hold live, in person, meetups in the Sacramento CA area every month as well as interactive webinars on Zoom monthly as well. Anyone is welcome to attend either or both. 

All you have to do is become a member (it's FREE) over on the meetup page here:  https://www.meetup.com/internationalspeakersnetwork/
Then you can also join our Facebook group (once you become a member on meetup) here:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/ispeakernetwork/

In addition, I'm a business coach and the organizer of this group and I help entrepreneurs develop your speaking skills, get gigs, learn everything we're talking about here and I help get you visible and making money from speaking.

I hold 3-4 live trainings each year - you can find out more about the Live Event Schedule for Jumpstart Your Biz Events at http://www.LiveBigEvents.com.

If you'd like to discuss this all and how to become a speaker or use speaking more to grow YOUR business and make a lot more money doing what you love then come talk with me about this and more in a complimentary business strategy session by clicking here: http://www.AskKat.biz. 

Here's to creating and enjoying the business and life of your dreams!

WEBINAR AGENDA:

====================
9:00 am - Welcome from Katrina Sawa (host) and "quick" introductions from those on live
9:20 am - Reminders from Katrina on upcoming events, member & group announcements
9:30 am - 15 min speaker with Q&A - Dr. Annika Sorensen will be speaking of "Stage Stress Solutions!". Stress is a biological reaction happening when the demand and pressure on you is higher than you can handle. The tools biology has given us to solve that problem are fight, flight or freeze.
For 95% of the population the pressure of entering a stage is so high they would use fight, flight or freeze before going up on any stage at any time.
That means that you as a speaker is unique – you belong to the 5% who dares.
This doesn’t mean you see it as a dance on roses. Many speakers struggles with the same problem, fighting inside with the urge to fight, run away or play dead instead of taking the stage. Because that reaction is the first standard built in way from biology. But you have found some coping mechanisms.
In this session we will look at tools to use to keep the stage stress at an arm’s length away before - on and after doing your thing…..
In this talk you will:
• get 3 tips/tools to use before you enter the stage
• get 3 tips/tools to use while on stage
• get 3 tips/tools to use after leaving the stage
