The bootcamp we put on as part of the FSA Conni Gordon Speaker Academy is one of the best kept secrets of FSA. Over a day and a half, we bring in some of the most experienced and successful speakers from the chapter to share secrets of the speaking business.

This year’s lineup has just been announced:

  • Bruce Turkel, CPAE, will speak on “Everything you wanted to know about your speaking career, but didn’t know who to ask”

  • Troy Hazard, CSP, will explain the real business of speaking–what you need to do as an entrepreneur to have a successful speaking business

  • Keith Harmeyer, Past President FSA, will analyze his TEDx Talk with an emphasis on Storytelling

  • Heidi Richards-Mooney, Past President, FSA, will share secrets of using Social Media and Online tools effectively

  • Dr. Helen Turnbull, CSP, GSF, Past President of FSA, will discuss ethical blind spots for secrets

  • Scott Lesnick, CSP, will share secrets of selling

  • Lorna Kibbey, Dean of Speaker Academy, will moderate a panel on product development and back of room sales
