Description:  Ever desire to equip and empower youth audiences? How about inspiring educators?  In this special webinar you will hear insights and learn how to pivot your professional speaking to also include middle schools, high schools, college students and educators!  There are thousands of youth who need to hear your message to help prepare them for the real world out there.  Educators need it too!

Hope you will join this special virtual event which also benefits the NSA Foundation.  You'll hear from full/-time professional speakers who STARTED their professional speaking in the youth, college and educator markets.  Our presenters span multiple NSA chapters and are volunteering their time to help you learn how to launch into paid professional speaking to an entirely new ocean of youth and educator possibilities.

Yes, this event will be recorded and sent to all registrants but we hope you will join us LIVE to engage and ask questions.  Learning how to launch your speaking to Schools, Colleges and Educators will be a game-changer for your speaking business and your influence!
