Keeping Your Speaking Diary Full

May's meeting will feature a panel of busy professional speakers who will provide 'tips from the top' as to how they keep their respective speaking diaries full. Using a panel format, each speaker will individually share some of their personal 'how-to' tips and business growth strategies before opening up discussion by taking questions from the floor.

So start preparing all those questions that you always wanted to ask but didn't quite know who was best placed to answer them.

The 6 great panelist for this event are:

Rachel Green, CSP

Patrick Hollingworth, CSP

Patrick is an everyday family man from Perth, Western Australia. He's also a high-altitude mountaineer, and a leadership teamwork and safety expert. He worked towards his own personal goal of an unguided ascent of Mount Everest for ten years, and in 2010, after a lot of hard work and perseverance, he achieved it.
Standing on the summit of the world's highest mountain reinforced his belief that the benefits of taking oneself out of their comfort zone far outweighs the initial discomfort experienced.
Today, Patrick works with clients across the globe to help their leaders and teams get comfortable getting uncomfortable in an organizational landscape which is becoming more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous by the day.
