Episode 52: Networking for Speakers

Aug 30, 2021


Today we are diving in and talking about Networking for Speakers. What does networking as a speaker mean? What does it mean to you? Does it mean meeting people like you at speaking events? 

Be sure to tune in as I share some fun ways for y'all to network as a speaker. And if y'all listen really close, I'll share something super-secret about the waitlist for ACTIVATE. Get on the waitlist as there is something big coming. Y'all have until September 13th. But hurry because there is limited space with this limited-time offering. I'll give you a hint, think discount! But don't do that now. Let's get ready to find out how to network for speakers. 

Here are some highlights from this episode: 

  • Friends and family – do they truly know that this is what you are doing with your life (3:49)
  • You're not asking for anything. You're sharing and offering to serve (5:03)
  • Find your tribe, find your community, find your people (5:47)
  • Conferences are a vital component of networking (6:57)
  • Take the Stage Community and ACTIVATE group (8:25)
  • Prayer Pods with other like-minded speakers (9:08)
  • Networking at your speaking events (11:29)
  • Connect with event planners as often as you have something of value to share (13:41)

Where will y'all start networking? Maybe y'all want to join the Facebook group and share with us how it is going. We have such a fun and engaging group! Not on Facebook? No worries, find me on Instagram! I would love for you to share with me.
