Each recruit will receive professional feedback from Kevin and Cyndi as well as from certain attendees.

SPEAKERS ACADEMY BEGINS MARCH 13

The digital landscape is opening up new avenues for speaking professionals. It’s also serving up new challenges. Our top-notch deans Kevin O’Connor, CSP and Conor Cunneen have created a fabulous curriculum that not only serves to introduce new professionals to our field, but provides an up-to-date overview of the new technologies in use today.

We all know people who want to add speaking to their business, or want speaking to be their new career. Why not pick three and send them an email of recommendation with a link to the Speaker Academy page below?

MEMBERS ONLY BOOK CLUB MARCH 18

Book clubs keep your brain sharp, boost your creative powers, cause you to read more, and offer stress release... some studies even suggest they help you live longer. Our Book Club will meet every other month the Thursday after the chapter program from 5:30 PM - 6:20 PM. To begin, we're reading Lois Creamer's BOOK MORE BUSINESS. Going forward, we'll look at other non-fiction options to expand our minds, spark creativity, and provide ample fodder for healthy discussion. Meetings will not be recorded; registration is required by 12 noon the day prior.
