Florida Speakers Association is the
Florida Chapter of the
National Speakers Association
Florida Speakers Association is the premier resource for speakers, trainers and consultants and the one source for meeting planners looking for professional speakers and consultants.
We strive to help professional speakers grow their business by having monthly meetings that stress the advancement of the skills, integrity and values needed to succeed.
Our Next Florida Speaker Association Event:
TOPIC I: PRESS RECORD AND LET VIDEO BOOST YOUR SPEAKING BUSINESS
Speaker: Ken Okel
Date: Saturday, April 12, 2014
A speaker without video is like a speaker without a microphone. Meeting planners are no longer satisfied with simply hearing that you’re “good,” and maybe seeing a short clip of you in action. Why not dazzle everyone through video and stand out in a competitive marketplace?
In a 30 minute session that will be bursting with content, Ken Okel will show you how video can help you grow your speaking business.
- Whether it’s a cell phone, a web cam, or a video camera, you’ll understand how to maximize the use of your equipment. Beginner and advanced moves will be discussed.
- How to share your ideas on video as well as ways to use video to deepen your relationship with your audience.
- Performance tips from a guy who spent more than a decade on TV news.
About Ken Okel
The path to success is an obstacle course, not a straight line. When the pressure is on, knowing how and when to make your move, will set you apart as a leader.
It’s what Ken Okel learned after a pressure packed career in TV News, running a professional ballet company, and organizing hurricane relief volunteers.
Ken is the author of the book, Stuck on Yellow, the host of the 2 Minute Takeaway Podcast, the creator of The Whiner of the Week column. For more visit KenOkel.com
TOPIC II: GROW YOUR BUSINESS DESPITE HAVING NO IDEAD OF WHAT YOU’RE DOING
Speaker: Bruce Turkel
Date: Saturday, April 12, 2014
Not knowing what he’s doing catapulted Bruce Turkel to the top of the speaking profession. That’s why he works tirelessly at experimenting with the new media and being good at what he does—from connecting with people, communicating verbally and visually, storytelling, business operations, psychology, music & art and, of course, speaking.
Bruce Turkel began his career working with what his father called “the confidence of ignorance.” That may be the basis of his success: a fearless approach to embracing what’s new and adopting that which “works.”
Or maybe it’s his height.
This formidable member of our own chapter of the National Speakers Association will sit with us as equals and ask, “What do you want to know?” During Bruce’s presentation, you’ll learn whatever you ask, plus:
- Who executives hire currently instead of speakers,
- Why you must specialize,
- Managing your growth by managing your brand
- Customizing your content through context and
- How the “pyramid effect” can help you sell more engagements.
