Make More Money, Get More Done and Have More Fun - in 2021!

We are delighted to again be running an in person event for December. This will be our Christmas Dinner, so please come along ready to join with your speaking colleagues and celebrate all that you have done, learnt and achieved in this very challenging year!

PART 1: Trust Me, I'm a Speaker: Make More Money, Have More Fun and Get More Done - in 2021!

This year has been one of great uncertainty and confusion – so this meeting will give us an opportunity to regroup and refocus on the things that work to build your business and win more speaking, training and coaching work.

In this session, outgoing 2020 Chapter President Gary Edwards CSP will show you:

  • How trust drives the conversation that you have with potential clients
  • How to position yourself as the person that your potential clients want to buy from
  • The 5 P’s of Trust that you need to get clear on in order to influence someone to buy you
  • How to put together a proposal that will either win the deal or get you into a conversation with your buyer

You’ll leave with greater clarity about what you’re offering the world in 2021 and the essential foundation components of any written or verbal proposal that you want to put to a client.

PART 2: Xmas Presents - From You To Everyone Else!

with Sally Curtis

That’s right – we’re asking YOU to bring a gift for EVERYONE ELSE in the room!

But it’s not as expensive as it sounds!

In SA, we’re a robust, successful and sharing speaker community. And we all have great ideas and resources that we could share with other people to help us all launch into 2021 better than ever before.

So for this meeting, we’re asking you to THINK ABOUT one (or more) of these things that you’d be happy to share with others:

  • What’s a great idea that’s worked for you this year?
  • What’s a great resource that you’ve found and that everyone should know about?
  • Who’s a great connection that you think everyone should know?

Bring it along and 2021 Chapter President Sally Curtis will facilitate how we swap ideas so that we all leave with great gifts of knowledge, connection and practicality that we can use in our businesses next year.
