Indie Family & Friends Fall Fling

Your Speech Counts

Your Story Matters

Impact a Life.  Influence a Generation!


Your ability to craft and present a short presentation can make or break your career.

Too often, speakers make the mistake of winging a short talk.  You can lose your audience in an instant and forfeit the impact and influence you were hoping to have.  When you are in front of a target-rich environment, the loss of credibility, the loss of prospects and the loss of future opportunities can be devastating.  Join us for a day of listening, learning, laughing and leading.

What you learn in preparing for a masterful, short talk can create a turning point in your career

What you learn from listening to other speakers (good or bad) will elevate your stage mastery

More Impact.  More Visibility.  More Business.  More Influence.
