Keynote Powerhouses:
Brace yourself for an intellectual feast as we present two stellar keynote speakers.

Chantal Cornelius With her talk “Stand Out or Stand Aside” she asks:

  • Do you stand out as a speaker?
  • Do you really stand out?
  • Do you know why clients should book you and not someone else?
  • You will understand the importance of building strong relationships with your clients.
  • You will learn why it’s not about you, but about your audience.
  • You will gain a unique insight into building emotional connections with your clients, which allow you to build the strong relationships you need

William Buist with his talk “Becoming the Master of your Speaking Business” he says his talk will show you how you can be more powerful and even more successful by intentionally becoming the master of your chosen field. Mastery is a journey that only a few will undertake, not because only a few can be selected but because few choose to do so. Will you make that choice?

His 3 takeaways today are:

  • Understanding the journey to mastery as a speaker.
  • Learn why some speakers stand out in their markets.
  • Know what to do next to build a better speaker business and says he will help us examine our speaking businesses from a different perspective.
