Attendance via Zoom
Zoom participants can go into their online group for activities, although the Sunday morning filming of clips in a theatre will not be possible to participate there is the option of watching and then making your own clips from home. Tips about lighting and background etc will be given.
This year’s Speakers Summit is going to be about learning AND action.
Over the weekend you WILL be implementing what you’re learning. This weekend of wisdom and wins involves YOU learning something new and taking ACTION so when you leave you leave equipped with new tips and tools. You WILL be implementing what you are learning!
No more SHELF DEVELOPMENT - this is a weekend of ‘applied learnings’ and authentic self-development.
9.45am - Arrive online for mix and mingle
10am Saturday - BUSINESS PLAN AND MONETISING (Session 1)
Business Flow with Rob Robertson
Create and share your plan - Yes we ALL need one! It’s important to be updating where we are ‘at’ and where we want to ‘go’.
Monetising is a roadblock for many of us so we’re going to talk about that too. Rob will only spend a few minutes explaining the principles of flow using his 1pageplan template, although you are welcome to use your own. Then most of this session will be in a Zoom breakout room with a partner. Either share your newly created plan as you build it, or whatever you have already created in whatever format you like to use.

2 pm Saturday - MAKING PROFESSIONAL VIDEOS WITH EASE (Session 3)
Julian Mather has seen the world through many lenses. Through a telescopic sight as an army sniper. Through the TV lens as a globe-trotting videographer for ABC TV, National Geographic and BBC. Through smoke and mirrors as a professional magician.
Now he’s focused on democratising video for business; taking video from an art reserved for a chosen few to a skill that everyone can learn… and he hopes that when you’re ready to implement video in your business, you’ll join him. Bring your charged phone, tripod and maybe a light if you have one
3:30pm Saturday - AMPLIFY YOUR BRANDING WITH ONLINE IMAGES AND PRESENTATION TOOLS (Session 4)

Day 2 Sunday
10 am Sunday - UPSKILLING OUR WORDS AND PHRASES (Session 5)
Could you effectively articulate what you speak about with impact? Are you aware of emotive language? Is your keynote constructed with techniques for impact? Are you talking about what YOU want to say or delivering to the needs of your audience? There IS a difference.
Facilitated by Monica Moore we’re going to look at the effect of short sentences, repeated words, redundant words to uplevel how we are delivering. We’re going to break into groups and speak.
11:30 am Sunday - A PITCH, A PROPOSAL AND A BUNCH OF BIOS (Session 6)
Professional Speakers need to have templates for a pitch, a proposal and a variety of bios.
We are going to look at some templates and make our own, sharing ideas. Bios - it is important to have a variety on hand for event organisers - may be on your website - a publicity page? Current photos etc
2pm Sunday - 5 WAYS THAT A FACEBOOK GROUP CAN GROW YOUR IMPACT, INFLUENCE AND INCOME (Session 7)
Many entrepreneurs are scrambling to build their online profiles since the emergence of covid, so avoid the time-wasting trial and error process of doing it all yourself, and learn from Cat Coluccio who has built a number of online businesses leveraging the free tool of Facebook Groups over the past decade.
1. Why your business needs a group right now.
2. How a group and a business page differ and why you need both.
3. How you can protect your business in case Facebook shuts down.
4. How you can provide the perfect, sellable solutions your audience wants and needs. 5. How even the smallest group can still grow your business.
3.30pm IF we are ready each of us will give a snippet of their keynote as if they are delivering online. We will be the audience and you will get something for your showreel (Monica will share hers so you get the idea)
Feedback and discussion on learnings
Depending on how everyone is feeling we could go ahead and have a full debrief.
