The September meeting was our most amazing event since I’ve taken over as new Chair earlier this summer. WOW!
Our Meet The Pro segment was truly remarkable as the dynamic Carolyn Gross shared her story as a professional speaker. You can learn more about Carolyn at www.CreativeLifeSolutions.com.
And talk about WOW… Cipri Vang was sensational. She has a promising future as a paid speaker and her talk “Beauty in Blossom” was insightful, incredibly personal and truly inspirational. Her stage presence and life story combine to create a moving atmosphere. And your feedback as audience members will help focus this message on the audience for maximum value and impact.
Coach John Robinson rocked us with his program and methodology of BOLD. His program has great potential and he’s a polished presenter. As an experienced speaker with huge brand potential, the insights from the audience empowered him to continue on the journey.
And Emcee Robert Acosta led the entire night in a special way. Robert’s passion for supporting the speakers and keeping the audience engaged, as well as adding insights of his own… made the event the best one yet – at least in my new tenure.
Are you talking about Speakers Bureau? Come on folks! Be sure to share your experience with fellow Toastmasters members and the entrepreneur you run into in the marketplace. Virtually everyone relies on the spoken word for personal and business success… and I bet you know five or ten people that would have totally enjoyed our last program.
And next month is going to rock to as we have two proven speakers that are going to rock your world.
PS. Expect the dates to change for NOV & DEC but other than that, we’re 7pm the 4th WED of every month.
Emcee Sophia Leung engaged the audience, juggled the agenda with a late arriving speaker and delivered a fun, engaging program.
As usual, the round robin evaluations brought tremendous insight and recommendations.
The Meet the Pro segment was incredible as Branding Evangelist Gerry Foster delivered big time. His credentials and branding expertise are truly impressive – unparalleled actually – and he engaged the audience with a powerful presentation and a free offer that several attendees acted upon.
Featured Speaker, Robert Lauria raised the volume and wow’d us with his presentation of Special Education Behind the Curtain. Some would call him the Stephen Hawking of Special Education and his program has potential for main stream audiences and hot topics such as Limiting Bullying and Curbing Discrimination.
Chair Kevin Graham led a discussion on Required Assets for Paid Speakers, which emphasized the need for ‘something to say’ and ‘something to send.’
A speaker video is important for speakers working to get paid gigs, and a book can be a business card for thought leaders. But at the end of the day, you really just need ‘something to say’ and ‘something to send.’
HAVE YOU BEEN TO SPEAKERS BUREAU?
SPEAKERS BUREAU is a free forum every 4th WED. We meet at 7pm in Costa Mesa (Mesa Verde United Methodist Church). It’s a warm, welcoming environment (at least until the round robin evaluations begin)
Come to Speakers Bureau – 7pm Fourth WED. (NOTE: November and December dates will vary due to holidays.)
