NSA-Arizona Speaker Coaching YOU

July 28th is our last Speaker Coaching YOU Studio until September!

Don Thoren, CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame, will conduct a special clinic on how to write powerful sentences. Any type of presentation, blog, book, or training is made up of individual sentences. You will be introduced to a formula Don has evolved over many years that will assure each of your sentences achieves maximum impact. Great speeches, books, etc. are made up of sentences. If each of them has impact, the entire message has impact!

In addition, 3 presentation slots are available. Participants are working together to give feedback, offer enriching suggestions, and thereby help each other create a speech or seminar, or other event where they are comfortable charging a $5000 fee.

If you want to attend: Please register, or just show up and learn vicariously!

NEW LOCATION: Ability360, 5025 E. Washington Street, Phoenix, AZ 85034 - Classroom A, 2nd Floor, Main Building

If you want to present: Contact Rita ASAP and request a place on the list. ritahudgens@gmail.com

If you want to practice for an upcoming booked speech: Also contact Rita and we will try to slot you in ASAP for 15 minutes.

In addition to continuing to provide practice opportunities for openings, we will transition to “First Point” after your opening for those wanting to practice that material. We will see what our attendees needs and desires are at the end of each Studio and adjust our schedule of content to meet them.
