Passion for the Platform HOT SEATS
Getting better as a speaker is not a spectator sport. At NSA-DC’s April meeting featuring speaker coach and trainer Gary Rifkin, you will have the opportunity to hone your skills at a special “Hot Seat” session, where you will have a one-on-one speech coaching session with Gary in front of a caring audience. You will build more confidence and competence on the platform while also learning from your peers. Spaces for this unique opportunity are limited so register today.
The hot seat can be anything you want it to be. You can work on re-crafting your opening, re-framing your content, or even just fine-tuning a segment you are already delivering. Usually folks are working on a story or figuring out how to bridge the story to a message (or vice versa). It's likely that you don't need more than 5-7 minutes of content. Oh, and I'll probably interrupt you about 20 times as you're delivering! I promise it will be fun and not too painful. :-)
HOT SEAT Participant - $97 (ONLY 4 available)
HOT SEAT Audience - $20
