How to Speak and Succeed in the Virtual World… and Beyond

We all know the world of professional speaking, consulting, and coaching has dramatically changed, now that we can’t meet in person. However, that does not mean you can’t drive your business forward, deliver amazing presentations, and make money. This program is designed for novices and long-time super stars alike. After attending this virtual event with Patricia, you will be better prepared to maximize opportunities and help create them.

You will better understand how to:

  • Appreciate what is still the same…more than you think
  • Position yourself ahead of the crowd…do what most don’t consider
  • Improve your presentation skills…online and in-person
  • Build your credibility…specificity matters
  • Tell memorable stories…techniques from Hollywood

Topic: Understanding and Working With Speaker Bureaus

Mike Frank, has spent most of his life in the speaking/ training business. Soon after graduating college, Mike had the opportunity to work for a company that started the concept of major public rallies, featuring famous speakers. Within four years, he became VP of Sales before starting his own business, Speakers Unlimited, the fifth oldest speakers bureau in North America. Mike is one of the original charter members of NSA, and has produced large public seminars in Ohio, Tennessee, Florida, and Hawaii. Additionally, he has produced nine professional speaker showcases in Ohio, and also produced a successful showcase in High Point, NC.

In 1980, Mike became President of NSA, and became a CSP the following year. He is the only person to serve as NSA President and the chairman of the Speakers Bureau Owners P.E.G., and the single recipient to receive the CPAE Hall-of-Fame Award and the CAVETT Award in the same year (1990). Mike was the first professional speaker to write a book for others to understand the speaking business, entitled, Speaking for Money. His updated version in 1995, renamed, For Professional Speakers Only, is one of the biggest selling books for helping speakers know the truisms in marketing themselves as a professional speaker.
