With conference season being on our heels, now is the perfect time to prepare for securing speaking engagements. We’ve found the perfect person to teach any willing and aspiring speaker how to “create an irresistible pitch to speak at conferences!” We’re also introducing the latest and greatest read, Self Made, and replaying our Facebook blab. This is our Weekly Round Up!
Pitch & Speak at Conferences
Amber Wright has branded herself at the go-to for all things speaking and for great reason! For the past several years, she’s dedicated herself to helping stuck, but aspiring professionals speak at large events from the heart. Last month, Wright hosted (a sold out) webinar for those individuals who left remarkable reviews. Stacey Ferguson even chimed in on how amazing Professor Wright is!
For those of you who missed last month’s Irresistible Pitch Training, now is the time to sign up for Wright’s next class, which will be held on June 14, 2016 on the interwebs. Candidates can sign up here for this complimentary class. Directly from the course website, here’s what you’ll learn:
- Why you should start speaking at conferences
- What to do before you send the session pitch
- Specific details on what to include in the session pitch
- What to do after you’ve sent your submission
- How to get invited back after you’ve presented!
Congratulations, Amber! We’re excited for your next class.
Nely Galan’s Self Made Book is in Stores!
“Being self-made means you’re in the driver’s seat of your life. It means you control your financial destiny. It means you work because you want to, and not because you have to. It means you see the world through the lens of your goals, instead of being deluded by the temporary lure of instant gratifications. It means you embrace sacrifice, you choose yourself, and you become your own Prince Charming. But above all, being self-made means you are self-reliant, empowered and rich in every way, because instead of following your bliss–you create it.”
Nely Galan’s Self Made, now in stores, provides a safe and motivational space for women unashamed of being the boss of their own life. Whether that ownership comes in the boardroom, in love and relationships, motherhood or elsewhere, this book empowers women to feel at their best while living the lives their desire and deserve. Women are constantly told to choose, but leaders like Galan remind us that with a strong and positive mindset and standards, we don’t have to. In fact, we can choose to have our versions of “all”.
In addition to this fantastic read, Self Made promotes a new website, app and powerful movement of women like you sharing their stores. Learn more about the book here.
