    NSA-Arizona Speakers LAB

    Cultivate Your Speaking Skills

    Come join us at NSA-Arizona Speakers Lab at Arcadia City Church in Phoenix to get energized and to bolster your grit. We are known for providing valuable feedback from skilled evaluators. We also provide a unique networking environment. You are instantly among friends and colleagues. 

    We provide feedback in a structured environment. We ask presenters what their purpose is and what kind of feedback they want or need. We provide guidelines both for evaluators and for speakers. This helps to provide supportive, constructive, and useful advice.

    Is there an area of your speaking or your speaking business that would benefit from some feedback? Come join us at Speakers’ Lab and experience the valuable feedback and encouragement to help you improve in any area of the speaking business.

    You may attend these sessions as a Guest. However, if you wish to present at the Lab, you must be a chapter member in good standing. We ask that you attend as a participant twice before you sign up for time to present.

    In a regular meeting, we have three 30-minute slots. Speakers can use the time to receive feedback and tips for a specific purpose, like trying out new material or trying a new form of speaking. They can also get feedback about marketing materials, web sites, or a book idea.

    We have an opening for a speaker! To claim your spot, contact Natalie Sayer. Please put “Speakers Lab” in the subject line.

    Speakers Lab is one of the greatest features provided by NSA-Arizona. It is designed to be a safe place to not only practice and hone speaking skills, the feedback given by NSA members is extremely valuable and well worth the price of membership. I highly recommend Speakers Lab to anyone serious about advancing their speaking career.” — Rita Hudgens

    Adventures in Podcast: Should Speakers Host and/or Guest On Podcasts?

    Thom Singer has been podcasting for seven years. In addition to his show, Making Waves at C-Level (formerly Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do), he now hosts 4 other shows as the "outside" host for companies and associations. With over 1,000 interviews completed, he has found unique ways to monetize his podcasting and it has directly impacted his speaking career. In this interactive program he will share ideas on hosting your own show, being a guest on other people's shows, and answering any questions about the not so new medium of podcasts.  

    Thom Singer is an executive search consultant and a professional speaker on the topic of human connection and trust. He brings his high energy presentations and action-oriented content corporate and association audiences. 

    Thom knows that as the speaker or master of ceremonies he has a responsibility to set the tone for a strong conference attendee experience. Known as "The Conference Catalyst" he creates an atmosphere of fun and interaction that lasts beyond his presentation.

    Thom earned his Certified Speaking Professional® (CSP®) in 2014 and is committed to the business of meetings. He is the author of 12 books and is the host of five podcasts: Making Wave at C-Level podcast, the Digital Enterprise Society Podcast, Speakernomics, The Sales Tech Podcast, and the Webinar Talk Show. On his shows he has interviewed over 1000 business leaders with a focus on discovering how the most successful people get farther across the gap between potential and results.

    At 50 years old Thom decided to reinvent his life and make age 50 to 75 the best years of his life. This meant saying yes to things that scared him, and trying new things. Since that time Thom has jumped off buildings, took up running (and lost 30 lbs.), plays chess, and began performing stand-up comedy.

    NSA-Arizona Speakers LAB

    Cultivate Your Speaking Skills

    Come join us at NSA-Arizona Virtual Speakers Lab to get energized and to bolster your grit. We are known for providing valuable feedback from skilled evaluators. We also provide a unique networking environment. You are instantly among friends and colleagues. 

    We provide feedback in a structured environment. We ask presenters what their purpose is and what kind of feedback they want or need. We provide guidelines both for evaluators and for speakers. This helps to provide supportive, constructive, and useful advice.

    Is there an area of your speaking or your speaking business that would benefit from some feedback? Come join us at Speakers’ Lab and experience the valuable feedback and encouragement to help you improve in any area of the speaking business.

    You may attend these sessions as a Guest. However, if you wish to present at the Lab, you must be a chapter member in good standing. We ask that you attend as a participant twice before you sign up for time to present.

    In a regular meeting, we have three 30-minute slots. Speakers can use the time to receive feedback and tips for a specific purpose, like trying out new material or trying a new form of speaking. They can also get feedback about marketing materials, web sites, or a book idea.

    We have an opening for a speaker! To claim your spot, contact Natalie Sayer. Please put “Speakers Lab” in the subject line.

    Speakers Lab is one of the greatest features provided by NSA-Arizona.
