The New Rules of Speaking

Join us for our chapter event on Monday 18 May 2015.

Sam CawthornThere are NEW RULES in how to get your message out into the world fast and stand out from the saturated speaking markets?

Cawthorn has gone from Tasmanian country farm high school dropout to speaking in 22 countries and reached over 165 million people through his resources, speaking & social media.

Through writing 6 books, one becoming an International Best Selling, and being the founder and CEO of the INSTITUTE FOR PROFESSIONAL SPEAKERS, an incubator for speaking talent, Sam's learnt what it takes to speak and position oneself with rapid results.

At this session you'll learn:

  • How to never be underpaid, undervalued and under recognised as a professional speaker
  • How to position yourself into the inner-circle of any industry fast
  • Secrets for making a name for yourself in the new fast-paced and saturated market
  • Blueprint to writing and getting a TEDx talk
  • 5 Step formula to becoming a Celebrity Authority

Sam has learnt what not to do and what doesn't work. He has also worked with the best speaker coaches in the world both in the corporate world and the public speaking space.

There is a proven formula that works with rapid results. It is possible to get 20k+ for a single 1 hour presentation. He will show you how.

Sam has also established has own recognised charity which highlights the cycle of poverty and disability in developing worlds. His team have set up 5 schools and are building the biggest awareness campaign of kids that live with a disability in India.

Sam is the 2009 Young Australian of the Year, overcame a major car accident leaving him with a permanent disability and married his high school girlfriend where they reside in Balmain Sydney with 3 beautiful children.

The Melbourne Pre-Session

Now with more Geoff McDonald!

Claim Your Expert Position in Two Steps

The most common question asked of new speakers is:

What’s your topic?

Geoff MacdonaldAnd, as a speaker it’s not really about your topic, it’s about your expertise. At NSAA, we’re “Experts who speak”. That’s right, we’re experts first and speakers second. 

In this hands-on session you will claim your expert position by following a two-step process that Stephen Covey turned into a best-selling book, a million dollar business and a very full speaking calendar. 

In 2010, Geoff McDonald received the NSAA Victoria President’s Award for running the pre-sessions at the chapter meetings. On a number of occasions his sessions received better ratings than the main event. 

Geoff is a former Architect who no longer designs buildings instead he designs ideas. He is well known as the author of Book Rapper, has published a number of books and spoken at international design conferences.
