Watertight Selling: The proven blueprint to book 30+ full-fee gigs every year (yes, that includes now).

Let's face it - there's a ton of noise out there about selling. I don't know about you but I've wasted hundreds of hours bouncing between different strategies I picked up that week.  "Post on social more"...."Write more content"..."Ask for the sale more..."..."You need funnels". Or the awful amount of time spent on figuring out my sales cadence.
I used to obsess over the number of touchpoints, times of day for sending emails, or even the delay in between touches.  All that time. All those different strategies. Nothing worked. Long story short, I was trying too many different things looking for a magic wand to make money. When in reality, they were all great strategies. I simply wasn't focused.

By the end of this jam-packed 20 minutes, you're going to not only learn our proven Watertight Selling blueprint to focus in your sales efforts, you're going to walk away with a documented sales cadence, email templates, call templates, LinkedIn templates, and everything else you need to book 30+ full-fee gigs per year. Only focus will be required.

So what do you say? Are you ready to focus and master Watertight Selling?

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

If building wealth was only about accumulation of assets, then squirrels would rule the world.

If the road to financial security was lined with unicorns and rainbows, winning the lottery or a TV gameshow; then we’d all be stars on “My Lottery Dream House” (starring that oogie guy with the tattoos!)

For most of us mere mortal speaker-types, developing a disciplined, smart system of wealth building is the surest way of living life free from financial worry in good times and not-so-very good times.

Topics will include:

  • Four rock solid rules for investing
  • Four kinds of money
  • The most powerful tools in the toolbox
  • Entrepreneur Retirement Planning 101
  • Zoom/Q&A
  • Your cost is an honor-system donation to your favorite food bank

What story are you telling and does anyone care?

The shift to digital is accelerating. The average person is now exposed to an estimated 6,000 to 10,000 advertisements a day. And, there’s no shortage of experts on every conceivable topic who are only one click or search away.

Now, more than ever, it’s critical to have a message that cuts through the clutter. But, with so much to say, how do you make sure your message is clear, concise and compelling? Attend this meeting.

Discover what research teaches us about decision making. Learn simple changes you can make to improve the effectiveness of your marketing. Walk away with a checklist you can use to makeover or help create any marketing message. And, most important, use the learning to get more leads or increase sales.

Set Your Plan to Become a CSP!

This session will not only address the criteria, but it will go beyond that. Kate will share best practices to help you set up your internal procedures so that when it’s time for you to apply, the process will be easy (well, easier at least!).

SESSION BONUS: Kate has used the eSpeakers software for more than 15 years and will show how it simplifies the CSP application process. She also has created her own set of eSpeakers tips and tricks about how to use the software to identify leads, how to categorize your events by industry, and keep track of all the moving parts of each presentation. She’ll even bring a discount code for NSA-WI members! Come with questions!
Preparation is everything!  “Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

Inclusive Speaking in 2021

As our world grapples with what it means to treat every person with dignity and respect, speakers have an even more important platform for setting an example, being inspiring and speaking  inclusively. The words we use and messages we deliver can engage or exclude, uplift or discourage, and spark ideas or drive division. Discover how to Show, Shift and Shape your way to understanding intersectionality as we explore how you can THINK better, BE better and DO better at creating welcome and belonging for every person who hears you speak.  Bring your questions and an open mind as we prepare to make the world a better place!
