    IMPORTANT NOTE: This event has been moved online due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus. To participate via Zoom (by video conference or phone), use the dial-in information that you receive in your confirmation email.

    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.
