San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 04, 2011
October 1st and 2nd will see the second in a bi-annual series of the Sought After Speaker Summit designed to teach new and seasoned entrepreneurs how to grow their business through public speaking. Ironically, it is also the one thing most people fear the most. This summit is different as it not just preaches the gospel of how to create strategic business growth, but how to do it by taking the stage. Attendees learn to be loud and proud about the value they bring and how to thrive by bringing it. Some make it and some don’t. However, they all walk away with how to leave a conference with new business, how to create a business strategy to include public speaking, branding themselves and even how to do a webinar. Caterina and the other expert speakers never leave anyone disappointed.
“The summit seems to weed out the risk takers from those that just can’t take that leap and it amazes me how many people really come out of their shell and want to become a speaker." shares Caterina Rando, creator of the summit. When asked why she is amazed by this trend, Caterina said “…people seem to be caught between the desperation of their success as an entrepreneur and the fear of joblessness. There is a real connection in why seminars like these are in such high demand. Men and women alike are seeing more and more value in educating themselves with seminars, webinars, teleclasses and more."
Tammy Tribble, expert speaker at the upcoming summit and creative director of Mimetic Design states, “I have found it fascinating how many people soak up the information we provide, like how having a great website and all the brand work that goes into that helps with their speaking opportunities. So many Baby Boomers are beginning to realize as they move into entrepreneurialism how critical it is they get all of the pieces of the puzzle right. Many cannot afford to go back to school, so they are going for the opportunity to learn from experts who know and can lead them to success."
As Lethia Owens of Lethia Owens International, one of the top branding gurus in the world says, “…it is imperative to deliver engaging presentations that get the audience to shift their thinking about the topic you choose…one of my areas of expertise is to show speakers how to be irresistible.”
The intimacy of 50-60 people creates a safe environment. Caterina and the other experts are open and giving with information. Pat Haddock, professional writer, editor and expert speaker will be teaching attendees another way of working into taking their business to the next level through webinars. “There is a lot of fear people lose and much they can gain in confidence doing webinars that also prepares them for public speaking” states Haddock. Still, it is after this event that the attendees rave at how much they learned, how generous the experts are and how ready they are to tackle the stage! Many seasoned speakers also attend to learn new strategies in speaking. All walk away with new leads and friendships. Some will also walk away as a co-author for new book projects offered by Caterina Rando. Therefore, in the end, everyone gets what they came for.
