10th August 2021 – Reputation Matters!

Everyday people might talk about your business, they may whisper, or they might shout, or they may say nothing at all. What builds your reputation, what destroys it, and how can you influence it to be better every day? Join us online this month and find out!

Grab you favourite chilled beverage and zoom into the room with PSA South West for a Reputation themed August meeting with three top notch speakers:

Chantal Cornelius
Build Your Reputation by being REALLY Different

• So you think you’re a unique speaker, do you?
• You think you’re really different and that nobody else speaks about your topic?
• Really?!

Unless you’re completely clear on what makes you stand out, you won’t be able to build a reputation for being the best speaker in your field.
In this keynote, Chantal Cornelius will show you a unique way of standing out from your competitors, to help you build a really strong speaking reputation. Chantal is Marketing Director for the PSA, and has 21 years of experience of working with coaches, consultants and trainers, through her business, Appletree Marketing. Come and hear her share a truly unique way of growing the strong reputation that you need.

John Young
How to Make Your Next Virtual Meeting as Professional and Effective as a TV News Broadcast

Let’s face it — we’re all broadcasters now. In this fast and fun 50-minute masterclass, John will help you make your next virtual meeting more effective, by revealing the secrets all news broadcasters know that make their bulletins effective. He’ll leave you with up to five easy-to-remember tips: to open with impact — to keep up the pace — to hold your audience — to shut people up (politely) — and to end on time. There’s no theory or waffle — just entertainingly delivered ideas that you can use at your next staff, sales, or training meeting.

For more than thirty-one years, John Young presented and reported the TV news on the BBC. Now, he helps businesses become as agile in their communications as a busy news team on a tight deadline.

William Buist
Building Better Business
Everyday people might talk about your business, they may whisper or they might shout, or they may say nothing at all. Every time you seek to get a new customer they will form a picture of your reputation from what they hear, from you and others. What really matter is what others say when you are not there!

What builds your reputation, what destroys it, and how can you influence it to be better every day. Come and find out!

Mark Faithfull
In the Green Room
Join our speakers and the PSA SW gang for a relaxed open discussion in the Green Room after the main meeting. Bring your questions, problems, challenges and doubts and harness the wisdom of the room to guide you to speak more and speak better.
