Candidates, are you ready to jumpstart your speaking career?

The NSA-Arizona chapter is kicking off a new and improved Candidate educational program. These sessions are a benefit INCLUDED with your Candidate program as long as you attend the monthly chapter meeting. Each interactive session will follow the monthly meeting and feature one of our chapter's expert speakers sharing tips and answering questions about your most important concerns. As a Candidate you will have opportunities to participate and practice your skills by becoming a facilitator for a session, sharing your successes or being highlighted in a monthly showcase.

Candidate sessions will follow our monthly chapter meetings and will run from 12:15 pm to 1:30 pm. Plan to attend our monthly meetings and stay for ALL six sessions. There will be prizes at the end for those with perfect attendance. This program is designed for you and by you, based on concerns and topics of interest gathered from Candidates. You can't get this kind of personal coaching and instruction anywhere else!

We are back with Session Three of our 2018-2019 Candidate Program. Join us from 12:15-1:30 p.m. immediately after the regular chapter meeting.

We're kicking off 2019 with our January session of your Candidate Program. The January session will cover the topic of Business Design and focus on creating the structure of your business. Are you a speaker who consults? Are you a consultant who speaks? Are you looking to design an online business? This interactive session will help you figure out the best way to structure your business for maximum efficiency.

January's Candidate session will be led by globally recognized project management expert, Belinda Goodrich. She is the founder and CEO of The Goodrich Institute and PM Learning Solutions, a speaker trainer and author.
