Message from the President

Posted by on Nov 30, 2011 in Blog | Comments Off


I bet you didn’t realize how cold it gets down here in Morgan Hill. You’re looking at a majestic view of the Silicon Valley behind me. I hope your Holidays this year are equally grand.

NSA has had some great events recently that I hope you were able to attend. In November, Chris Clark Epstein demonstrated how to be the speaker of choice, and differentiate yourself. Jane Duber, our newest chapter member, also hosted our first mini-meeting of the year and demonstrated how to eliminate the hassles and headaches typically involved in “taking our content virtual.”

So with the weather as cold as it is this winter, what should a Professional Speaker do with their time?

Ahh, the warmth of a fire, and Holiday cheer, now that’s how I like to enjoy this time of year. Bring your holiday rhymes and fun conversation to this year’s NSA/NC Member Holiday Party Sunday December 11 from 3-6 pm. Members are invited along with a guest for only $10 per person. Our Pro-Track members are also invited with a guest for only $15 per person. Pre-register on our website by Dec 7th to get these great rates, and help us plan the food accordingly.

Don’t fear not having anything to talk about at this social event. Kurt Shaver has solved that problem with a new LinkedIn group dedicated to our NSA chapter. The group is reserved for our chapter members, and members of the Pro-Track program. Go online to see some of the discussions our chapter is having. It’s also a great way to let others see what you’re working on. Hey look, four of our recent Pro-Track grads are presenting a series of workshops. Get your scoop on what’s happening professionally through our new linked in group. You should receive an invitation from Kurt to connect with this group – if you don’t, give him a call, his number’s on our website.

When the holiday’s wind down, it’s time to get back to work, and start making more profits. How will you do that you ask? We have two fantastic speakers that will answer that question. Laura Stack, our current NSA President will explain how all of us can easily incorporate video to get booked, and stay booked. Now this is a program after my own heart! Additionally, as a little New’s Year’s present to you, we’re bringing in a second speaker,

Bruce Serbin, speaker at the 2011 NSA Convention Million Dollar Club (I missed that meeting for some reason). Bruce is going to help us implement Million Dollar Marketing using media.
Vidoe of Money Dropping – me standing on left looking forward. What better way to multiply the effects of your marketing than using the Media to do it for you. Oh, the gifts don’t stop coming, because if you’re a NSA/NC chapter past president, we’d like to invite you to the meeting and lunch at no cost. Every year we celebrate our Presidents, because it’s through your leadership that keeps this chapter, and our members, moving forward.

Singup for the Jan 7 Chapter meeting on our website – it will be held at the Crowne Plaza in Foster City. Again, Happy Holidays, I look forward to seeing you at our Dec 11 Holiday Party, and the Jan 7th Chapter meeting.
