PSA Home Counties North July 2021: Network masterclass & how to write the right book
Welcome to our meeting in July.
It’s been a hot few weeks and we are looking forward to getting our heads into gear to advance our speaking businesses.
First up this month:
Taking you from ‘Working the room’ to Working the Zoom’ – Connecting 2 dots
In our new world where we can’t shake hands, ‘work the room’ or read the other person’s body language how can we ensure all the time we spend on Zoom and other virtual communication channels be of any value?
Will says “There is nothing to beat ‘real’ networking but when you and I plan our strategy and take regular effective action I believe we can get close to the genuine thing”.
Will plans to share his thoughts on connecting real & virtual networking 3 main benefits:
1 – Understand why the basics are the same
2 – Questioning, body language, and kindness…it’s all the same to build and reinforce those relationships
3 – How to always follow up opportunities in a professional and confident manner
Will practised as a Chartered accountant for 30 years ending his accountancy career as the senior partner, on merger, with a national firm. He now shows people in the entrepreneurial, professional, and financial sectors who find attending events a ‘challenge’ just how simple and effective it is when it comes to building business relationships online as well as face-to face. He is a full-time professional speaker and trainer and is considered a UK leading authority on the vitally important topic of networking. Since 2000 he has presented to over 100,000 people all over Europe. He is a published author of the bestselling book “The Networking Survival Guide,
He has been awarded the Professional Speaking Award of Excellence the highest accolade available in the speaking profession. His website is www.kintish.co.uk
Our second speaker is Heather Townsend who helped to bring the Home Counties North region back to life some years ago.
Booked: How to grow a profitable speaking business by publishing a book
Write a book they say – it will grow your profile and propel you to speaking stardom. Well, that’s how it is meant to happen. But writing just any book isn’t going to do this. You have to write the right book for the right audience which will help them take the right action. Then when you have done that, get it into the hands of the right audience.
By listening to this session you will learn:
1. Why you need a ‘platform’ and what this is for an author
2. How to connect your book with what your audience are craving to read
3. The exact tactics you need to make your book the cornerstone of your speaking business
4. What common mistakes you need to avoid making when writing and publishing your book
Heather Townsend is the author of 6 books including ‘How to make partner and still have a life’. Her books have sold over 20,000 copies around the world.
Don’t miss out on 2 Fellows of the PSA helping us to speak more and speak better. There will be a question and answer session after they have spoken and of course our informal networking at the end of the evening.
Really looking forward to seeing you there,
Yvonne and the team at Home Counties North
