Every Friday we host Speaker Friend Fridays on Zoom. With so many awesome speakers, authors, event managers, podcasters and others joining us, there is an amazing amount of knowledge in the room.

Everyone brings questions, topics and victories to share. Event managers are welcome too! We also host First Friday Speaker Friends noon Eastern/9:00 am Pacific the first Friday of every month.

Our October 07 meet had about 60 speakers show up to share information and insights, and ask and answer questions. Here is the recording of the event for members who couldn’t attend.

Here are few topics we covered:

– Think outside your industry

– Getting speaking engagements through government contracts

– When can you start making money from speaking?

– Do I have a positive bias about my speaking and presentation? Am I in front of the wrong audience?
How do I approach a debrief meeting?

– Should you share your presentation ahead with the people you are going to speaking for?

– Tools to boost your career

Here is the link to the chat.
