Welcome the NSA Carolinas!
President's Message, Rich Schlentz
NSA/Carolinas hosted another world class event on April 13th. Our VP of Programs, Chuck Gallagher, continues to provide our members and guests with world class presenters. Our featured speaker, Doug Stevenson, knocked our socks off. Using his Story Theater Method, Doug provided instruction and coaching on how to super charge our presentation skills—a topic that never goes out of style. Doug helped us to identify our most powerful and effective stories, use acting and comedy techniques, harness the power of dramatic silence, learn how to use authentic emotion, and so much more. There’s not a better value around for helping speakers to grow their business.
Here’s the good news. On Saturday June 15 we’ll do it all over again at Embassy Suites in Cary!!!. This time we’ll have the opportunity to learn from the fabulous Jane Atkinson who will speak on The Wealthy Speaker Seminar. You won’t want to miss it!
Since this is my last newsletter post as president, it’s important to recognize what it takes to be successful.
- We have an amazing current and incoming board. They’re talented and passionate. Our chapter is in good hands for years to come.
- We have a first class chapter. Our members are a joy to work with. They care about our profession and care about each other. It doesn’t get any better than that.
- We have an amazing legacy. Look around at any of our chapter meetings and you see past NSA/C presidents, past NSA presidents, and even a current Global Speaking Federation president.
- We have a promising future. The business has changed. Our clients have changed. We have the skills, tools, and message our world need. We’re poised to make the most of this change and allow it to drive our business to greater success.
Here’s to an even more productive and profitable 2013 – 2014. I’m grateful for the honor of serving with you.
