Meg Adler opened with a big delivery mentioning a book she found useful, and that the author was speaking for free in Newport Beach and offered free tickets.
Former Bureau Chair Victor Broski showed us some before and after speaker marketing pieces where we commented on strengths and challenges. Then we go to share our future presentation topics, titles and subtitles and get audience feedback. They loved it!
Karen Milski showed us a great tip on dealing with objections by acknowledging the other person’s concerns. The session was enhanced with role playing.
William Hung offered some great tips on Going from Hidden Gem to Industry Rockstar.
Set your goal, make those calls to associations and best of all, showed us a good way to keep the conversation going and get heard by the person who gives the final approval for speakers. He also told us that we HAVE to get to the FEE part. And then offered a proven approach to that as well.
Special thanks to Special Host, and former longtime Speakers Bureau Chair Victor Broski, for his service and commitment to the group and forum.
Updates on November and December meeting dates will posted soon!
