April 13-15, National Speakers Association Headquarters, Tempe, Arizona
Put the ChaCHING back into your business with a sales process and techniques that really work! Attend the 2012 NSA Business Revenue Lab at NSA headquarters in Tempe, Ariz., April 13-15, and discover how to implement a sales process with daily actions for generating a strong, predictable income so you can build a successful and sustainable business.
We've assembled some of the top sales experts in the country and some highly successful experts who speak, to share their expertise and insight. You'll find out how to do it right from the start with smart prospecting; have meaningful conversations with potential clients; set your fees and hold them and close more business.
In the "Do It Now" sessions you'll actually roll up your sleeves and immediately take several giant steps toward making your next sale, checking some of those hard-to-do to-dos off your list before we adjourn on Sunday. Come prepared with one big account you would love to land, and one where you want to expand your business. You'll be working in session to come up with a plan to execute on those opportunities and make the sale!
This lab is limited to 100 attendees. Register at www.NSABusinessRevenueLab.org or call NSA at 480-968-2552 by March 13 to take advantage of Early Rate savings!

The Accidental Communicator Share
As public speakers, because we know the importance of public speaking, we try very hard to be as comfortable as we can be on a stage in front of an audience.

However, this can all fly out the door if we find ourselves in a TV studio someday staring at a teleprompter. What is this thing and how do we use it? More
