If you haven’t already browsed the new NSA-Michigan website, now is a great time to do so!  NSA-MI chapter members will be particularly interested in viewing their profile on our “Find a Speaker” page.  We’ve moved to using eSpeakers, which means your NSA and NSA-Michigan profiles are one and the same.  Hopefully your profile is up to date and presents you spectacularly to meeting planners and organizations seeking professional speakers.

My desire as NSA-Michigan President is for each of us to have an outstanding and current profile.  As you take a moment to browse your profile, I encourage you to ask yourself:

  • If my information compelling and up to date?
  • Do I have a great picture that looks like me, or is it time for a new photo shoot?
  • Would I be interested in hiring me based on my profile?
  • Amy I presenting myself, NSA-Michigan, and the speaking profession well?
If your answer to each is a resounding yes, fantastic!  If not, it’s time to update your profile and give your business a boost.

After attending our outstanding July seminar with Ford Saeks, I gave my eSpeakers profile some much needed attention.  It’s a good thing I did because the next day my website was hacked and I got the distressing news that it was gone for good.  Not missing a beat, we linked my website address to my eSpeakers profile.  I even had a client tell me that they thought my “new website” was much better than my old one.  That’s how well eSpeakers profiles are laid out.  And, if you don’t yet have a website developed, you can make your eSpeakers account your website in the interim.

As a member of NSA, you have a basic eSpeakers account.  As a busy professional, your may want to consider upgrading to a professional account.  I did and my favorite feature is the calendar.  It was designed by speakers, for speakers and has everything I need for each speaking engagement in one place.  No more looking for things in multiple files or potentially having details fall through the cracks.

If you’re a bit overwhelmed, learn best by seeing, or want to know more about eSpeakers, attend our free upcoming “Leveraging eSpeakers Webinaron Tuesday, September 22 @ 12:00 – 1:00 pm.  A representative from eSpeakers will show you how to leverage the directory to promote your business.  This free webinar is limited to current NSA-Michigan chapter members.  Preregistration is required so we can send you the log-in information.

While you’re on the events page, check out this year’s fantastic seminar line up and get the second Saturday of each odd month on your calendar.  You, your business and your clients deserve the very best, and NSA-Michigan is your place to connect, enhance your skills, and grow your bottom line.

Best wishes for your continued success,
