Happy Monday Momentumers! There are so many conferences happening right now, which inspires me to inspire you to become a speaker!! No, you don't have to give up your day job, but how about sharing your expertise to audiences of potential clients? Ahhh, now that sounds exciting!!! In today's video, my goal is to wet your whistle about speaking at industry conferences, so take a look and let me know if you're in or wayyyy out! :catsurprised:
Happy Monday, and let's turn up the new client volume by taking the stage!! Standing by for your thoughts! J.
Last year after attending QBConnect, I gave myself the personal goal to be invited as a speaker by QB Connect 2019!
Prior to my accounting career, I used to manage Car Audio| Home Audio businesses which had their own version of QB Connect called MERA Knowledgefest. Thanks to an amazing mentor Bob Graham, I was provided the opportunity to work on the educational committee as well as speak at national events including SEMA in Las Vegas.
The best part of the entire experience, occurred about 9 months after a conference I spoke at. A company, Pioneer was putting on an event down in San Diego for their platinum members and out of the blue two different people that had attended my conference drove 2 hours in the wrong direction to stop into our store and say hello.
If you ask me, I am the one who received the greatest gift from that speaking engagement, the support to try it again!
Such a great story @ParkwayInc, and proof that speaking is a great way to connect, build relationships and grow your business too! Thanks for sharing! J.
