Business Speaking Opportunities
Learn with your peers
Association events that bring together diverse speakers promote deeper understanding and innovative thinking. Done well, association lectures can be motivational and inspire people to open up to new ideas, uncover easy solutions, and reinforce what we know as best practices.
Learn with your coworkers
One of the best ways to train a team to mission is to bring in the voices of aligned partners to share a broader view of small business operations and practices that can level up productivity and employee satisfaction.
Strong teams are the backbone of vibrant culture which in turn make companies resilient and ready to deliver on client promises with ease and joy. In this new age of work, these are the characteristics that will elevate and differentiate your brand.
Learn through shared wisdom and experience
In this time of lightning speed change, working in collaboration with other professionals to deliver relevant training is essential. Knowing about estimating is great, but without the overlay of sales skills, you’ll miss the full picture. Speaker panels are an effective way to cover lots of ground all at once.

With a BS in Entrepreneurship, I know what the books say, but as an owner, employer, and services provider for nearly 40 years, I know the reality of what it takes to make a business grow, last and provide you with the lifestyle you want.
