    Join us as we welcome NSA President Mike Staver for a high-content program  on building a better business.

    It’s one thing to be talented at what you do. It’s another thing to be talented at building a business. It’s one thing to make money, it’s another thing to sustain success. Effort is admirable! Achievement is essential. This session will inform and direct. It will trigger commitment and accountability. It will separate your intentions from your execution.

    You will learn:
    • The 6 keys to building a successful business
    • The 3 pitfalls most make
    • The indicators of success
    Mike Staver is the author of Leadership Isn’t for Cowards and an internationally respected speaker and coach. Mike takes noisy, often complex, leadership content and makes it immediately useful, digestible and entertaining. Mike has degrees in Business Administration and Counseling Psychology and is a Certified Speaking Professional. Companies from Federal Express and Miracle Ear to Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and the Mayo Clinic have repeatedly invited him to contribute to the development of their leaders. Most recently, some of Mike’s work was ranked #1 by Training Magazine on their 2018 Training Top 125 list, which recognizes organizations with the most successful learning and development programs in the world.

    One of the most valuable services offered by NSA-WI is the “Speakers Development Lab.”  All members from Past National Presidents and CPAE’s to new candidate members are welcome to attend.  The “Lab” operates much like a Hollywood “Actors Studio” where speakers, facilitators, seminar leaders, those who sell products or services through public presentations, etc. can go to try out new material, revise current material, practice delivery techniques, etc. 

    Our goal for the Speakers Lab is to take speakers, facilitators, teacher/leaders at their current level of skill, impact, fee level, etc., and help them move up to the next level. Both those speaking, and observers benefit from the Lab, and the net effect is to increase the skills and impact of each participant.
