“How to Demand 4 to 5 Figures Per Speech”

Reed Barrett

This presentation will highlight the importance of being unique, dynamic, & powerful as a speaker. Along with how social media can elevate your status among clients. All of which garnishes a higher speaker fee.

For the past 17 years Reed has been performing magic and mindreading. It wasn’t until he joined toastmasters 3 years ago that keynote speaking became a major part of his income. Reeds recent performances include the Bellagio Hotel, The Magic Castle, and for Fortune 500 company SnapChat.

Mission First. Others Second. You? Last

Chris and Diana Hutchinson

Leadership can be defined as an art of getting what you want. In this presentation you will learn a new framework for getting your needs met, whether you are CEO or an individual contributor. This model can be used to manage up, work better with peers, in a job search, and even with spouses or teenagers. Participants will try out this new method during the workshop and will leave ready to work with others get the outcomes they need.

Chris is CEO and Abundance Influencer, and Diana is the COO and Success Enabler of Trebuchet Group, an organizational improvement firm that believes great accomplishments require a great team. Chris and Diana have over 20 years of experience as leaders, facilitators, and coaches of leaders and teams in military, public, and private companies and not-for-profit organizations.

The Driving Force of You!

Bob Kittridge

Ever wonder why you do the things you do? Or worse yet NOT do the things you need to? As a club officer have you struggled with members who say one thing, but do another? That is because for many people they are being controlled by an unknown (to them) force. These we call Your Driving Forces! Join me as I reveal the puppeteer that is pulling the strings.

Bob Kittridge is an internationally recognized mentor, speaker, trainer and coach in the areas of leadership and team development. A passion for Bob is his ability to coach and help others discover their own passions and purpose.

10 Leadership Habits for Successful Club Meetings

Virginia Phillips

Create a club culture which will keep members loyal, create word-of-mouth referrals, and create a more successful club. You will learn 10 leadership habits you can implement today to make running your club easier and more enjoyable.

Virginia Phillips is an author of Yes, You Can!, the owner of The Academy of Entrepreneurial Excellence, a part-owner of Molder Rubber and Plastics Corp, a speaker, an entrepreneurial coach, and a podcaster.
