Super Seminars for Hosts and Speakers

with Nicole Wilde

Seminars offer wonderful opportunities for trainers and others to learn, live and in person, from some of their favorites in the business. But what if those speakers never seem to come to your area? You might have entertained the idea of hosting an event, but weren’t sure how to proceed. In this webinar, you’ll learn everything you need to know about the process so you can decide whether hosting a seminar is feasible, financially and otherwise. If you already host seminars, you’ll get inside tips and info from a speaker’s point of view that will help to make your events a more positive experience for your future speakers and attendees, and advertising/marketing suggestions that will help you to increase awareness and attendance. The other side of this webinar is aimed at speakers. Regardless of whether you’re entertaining the notion of presenting lectures or have been teaching for some time, this webinar will help you to put together seminars that receive rave reviews, and through positive professional habits, create good relationships with your hosts so you’ll be asked back again and again.  

Learning Objectives:

  • For potential hosts to get the information they need to produce a successful seminar, and for existing hosts to get tips to improve and streamline the process
  • For potential and current speakers to get information and tips on how to improve the experience for themselves and for their hosts, thereby increasing the chances of repeat invitations to speak
