What inspired you to choose “Level Up!” as the theme of this year’s Speaker Conference, and how do you think it will resonate with attendees?
The next level of success, a much bigger goal or target is not achievable if we are not levelling up ourselves. Our speaking business grows WITH us, not outside or without us! I am inspired by continuous growth and levelling up in the nature and I think we all can take it right onto out businesses: getting better, stronger and smarter every day in every way!
Therefore the concept of levelling up is about taking your skills, knowledge, and experience to the next level. It’s about pushing yourself outside of your imaginary comfort zone and striving for excellence. By doing so, you can (and you will!) unlock new opportunities and achieve your goals to impact, educate and motivate faster than you ever thought possible.
Attending our VSAI Level Up conference on the 10th of May can help you level up by exposing you to new ideas, best practices, and industry trends. You’ll have the chance to learn from experts in your field, network with peers, and gain valuable insights that can help you grow both personally and professionally.
Why should we do it, why level up? The answer is that we owe it to ourselves and our mission, our purpose as speakers!
Failing to level up could mean getting left behind. “If you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got” – famously said, Henry Ford.
If you’re serious about levelling up in your speaking career while also developing new connections in our industry, consider attending our conference on the 10th of May 2023!
Can you share with us some of the highlights of the conference agenda, and what attendees can expect to gain from attending?
We have 9 speakers bringing incredible value and combined expertise of nearly 250 years, a panel of VSAI board members that will enlighten you with top tips on how to level up and what mistakes to avoid! There will be breakout rooms for discussing the most important takeaways after each speaker as well as for meeting new people and do networking!
Nigel Risner will be opening our conference with his keynote, followed by Julie Holmes speaking on Pivot to Products: How to Productize Your Expertise and Scale Your Business, and Keith Abraham will do a workshop on Getting On More Stages – The 3 Elements to Attract More Bookings.
There is something many speakers neglect and forget about and Sarah Fox will enlighten us about it: Becoming a Smooth Operator – 3 Steps to a successful speaker contract! And another thing often overlooked is a collaboration with the event host, which will be skillfully presented by Claire Boscq: Level-up your impact: how to shine in the spotlight by collaborating effectively with your event hosts.
We will be back to doing and making more business with Lois Creamer that will do a workshop on Book More Business: Selling Your Speaking Services and Dawnna St Louis will deliver Flow like a boss: how to effortlessly turn sales into upfront cash – that so much needed money talk! Erik Swanson will introduce us to the power of Mastermind and our closing speaker will be Pegine with her rockstar keynote Be Bold, Be Brave, Be Seen, Be Heard and Be Paid Well!
You will also have the opportunity to get to know the VSAI team members that will be bringing loads of value and information through the panel and segments on membership, our upcoming Global Speakers Summit 2024 in Bali, news about our French chapter, upcoming events from other associations and of course, the results of the very first Speakers Day on the 14th of March!
