with Gerry Morris, Senior Consultant, Saxton Speakers Bureau

After a refreshing, productive hands on workshop with the great Warwick Merry CSP National President, and an intimate incisive pop up event with the commanding Sam Cawthorn CSP, in February,  we continue the momentum with our upcoming chapter event.

The two most valuable things you can do to develop your professional speaking career, are to:

  • join PSA - and learn and from those who know the journey
  • be a part of a mastermind group - and stay focussed week by week

This evening is designed to help you develop and enrich your speaking career, whether you are a complete newbie, or an international celebrity.   

Part 1: Mastermind Session -

Mastermind groups have been the catalyst for many successful speaking careers.  This Mastermind session is designed to support every single person in the room.  You will have the chance to work with others who are in a similar stage of professional speaker development as you are, to brainstorm, create and plan your next steps.  

Gary Edwards, Speaker, Coach, MC, and Influential Speaker expert, Sally Curtis, Speaker, Coach and expert on the future of networking, and myself, Liana Taylor, Speaker, Clinical Psychologist, International Mindfulness Teacher, and expert on the inner game of leadership will be available through this session to facilitate and guide. Other greats of the game will no doubt also lend a hand where their expertise is helpful.  

Do bring your Speaker Roadmap and notes.  

Remember, the quality of answers you receive is based on the quality of your questions.    What specific questions do you want to answer for your next one or two steps?

Part 3: How to get work with a Speakers Bureau, with Gerry Morris, Senior Consultant, Saxton Speakers Bureau

Gerry helped establish ICMI Speakers & Entertainers Queensland office from 2001 and worked with ICMI for some 12 years.
