Jo’burg Chapter Meeting
21 Jul @ 19:00 - 21:00 SAST
Dear members, colleagues, and friends
This month we focus on Business Models, the fourth speaker competency acknowledged by the global speaking community.
Our speakers this week will focus on getting your speaking business models in order, so you can maximize your time spent on acquiring your clients and organising your talks. Sharon will speak from her own experience about about how to effectively structure a speaking business: best practices, dos, and don’ts; and Jabu will speak about selecting the right business model for your speaking business.
Sharon King Gabrielides
Before Covid, about 2% of Sharon’s work happened online. Today it is 95%. And she’s had two of her best business years, while getting to lunch with her family every day.
Her session will focus on the Key Steps she takes to THRIVE and provide you with insight into:
- How she structures her business and advice on best practice for facilitators, speakers, and coaches.
- How she approaches her programmes for optimal value for the client and Key Steps.
- How she sells – or doesn’t sell 😊 – her programmes.
- The mistakes she’s made that you can learn from.
- Sharon looks forward to sharing with you so together we can grow our businesses and…
‘be the difference that makes the difference.’
One of the most challenging aspects of building a speaking business is figuring your own business model. Many businesses, including our speaking business goes through various stages of evolution. Positioning your business to adapt while staying profitable is a tough task. Join Jabu Zwane as he discusses different business models in speaking. Here are some of the points he’ll be covering in his talk.
- Different Types of Speaking Models.
- How he chose his Business Model.
- The Ongoing Process of positioning his business…local or global?
- Important questions to answer to choose your model.
- The Mindset while you figure it out.
