VIRTUAL SUMMIT – MARCH 23, 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Registration Deadline March 21st.

The Business of Speaking: An Action Guide to Getting Known, Getting Booked, and Getting Paid
For many speakers, the hardest part of the speaking business isn’t the speaking, it’s the business. It’s getting known, getting booked, and getting paid. Whether you’re an associate looking to become a professional, a professional working towards their CSP, or just a speaker who wants to speak more, this virtual summit is dedicated to giving you the knowledge, plan, and time to book business in 2019. Each module will tap into the expertise of a leading NSA speaker who has built a successful speaking practice and will not only give you actionable steps to take, but also give you time to actually focus on your business. This isn’t your usual “sit back and relax” program, this is a “get ready to do the work so that you get work” event.
The program includes conversations with expert speakers, hosted by Andrew Tarvin.

Module 1: Generating Leads with Andrew Davis
How to proactively identify your target audience, get on their radar, and create conversations.

Andrew Davis is a bestselling author and keynote speaker. Before building and selling a thriving digital marketing agency, Andrew produced for NBC and worked for The Muppets. He’s appeared in the New York Times and on the Today Show. He’s crafted documentary films and award-winning content for tiny start-ups and Fortune 500 brands. Today, Andrew Davis teaches business leaders how to grow their businesses, transform their cities, and leave their legacy.

Module 2: Building Credibility with Tamsen Webster

What you need to share with your audience so they know you are THE speaker they need, including your Session Title, Bio, Website, and Supporting Materials.

As a professional “Idea Whisperer,” Tamsen helps people find, build, and tell the stories of their ideas. She combined 20 years in brand and message strategy with four years as a TEDx Executive Producer to create The Red Thread™, a simple way to change how people see…and what they do as a result. (Though as she’ll tell you, everything she knows about people, speaking, and change, she learned at Weight Watchers.) Today, Tamsen is a globe-hopping keynote speaker who consults with enterprise companies like Verizon, Johnson & Johnson, and State Street Bank on how to get their big ideas to have the impact they deserve.

Module 3: Selling Yourself  with Phil Jones

“Exactly What to Say” at a networking event with potential clients, in an email to an organizer, in a reply to an inquiry, and in a sales conversation with a prospect.

Phil M. Jones has made it his life’s work to demystify the sales process, reframe what it means to “sell” and help his audiences to learn new skills that empower confidence, overcome fears and instantaneously impact bottom line results. Author of five international best-selling books, and the youngest ever winner of coveted “British Excellence in Sales and Marketing Award”, Phil is currently one of the most in-demand assets to companies worldwide.

Module 4: Engineering Referrals with Laurie Guest

How to engineer your talk and approach to maximize word-of-mouth, referral, and repeat business so that one talk becomes three.

Laurie Guest is a CSP who has been in the business for 25 years. She is known for her creative ideas and slightly sarcastic sense of humor. As a farmer’s daughter from Northern Illinois, Laurie had to figure out how to get booked and get paid without having to barter chickens. Like many of us, Laurie considers NSA colleagues to be family and that’s why she is joining our virtual summit – paying it forward and helping academy members book more business. She had the privilege of speaking on the mainstage at the 2015 NSA convention and has spoken to 26 of our 33 NSA chapters, consistently receiving stellar ratings.
