Welcome from the GSF President Martin Laschkolnig and an overview of the worldwide speaking community.
Everyone has a story to tell. In 2002 NSA president Jim Rhode and conference chair Mark LeBlanc invited Tim to do a general session event at the next annual NSA conference. They were convinced Tim’s original style and pee-your-pants hilarious stories needed to be shared with everyone at NSA.
His 30-minute program later that year was a big hit.
More importantly, one story really was especially unique and hilarious, his “Save Me the Middle Seat”. As Tim exited the Main Ballroom, CSP, CPAE Zig Ziglar told him: “You knocked it out of the park, Tim! On the spot, he was offered the main stage opening keynote spot at the next Million Dollar Round Table event and received offers from all over the world to book him or learn from him. He also had several speaker bureaus approach him for representation, and many still book him today.
What is your million-dollar story? Laugh-out- loud and have fun with Tim Gard, CSP, CPAE, as he shares his own million-dollar story and then explains how it helped put him on the path to a million dollars.
* A joke is simple in its elegance, but a story is as long or as short as it should be.
* Discover for yourself how to craft your own story using Tim’s Tips for story success.
* Signature stories and signature styles are so important.
As speakers, consultants, trainers or coaches, we often engage with an audience of culturally diverse views and lived experiences. In order to be able to maintain our relevance and to ensure that our audience feels included, we must adapt our style and content to be reflective of their needs. In this panel, we will discuss and take questions on how we can move from thinking about Diversity and Inclusion and instead think about generating better outcomes and, in turn, better business and audience engagement.
