Lisa Ryan’s “Smiling & Dialing Your Way to Bigger Engagements, Higher Fees & More Fun”

September 14 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Is it possible to take a brand-new list, from a brand-new industry, where no one knows you and you have no connections, and turn it into a six-figure speaking business one year later? Yes, it is and Lisa Ryan can tell you how it’s done.

After spending the first seven years of her speaking career focusing on general human resource (HR) audiences, she wanted to find a niche. After deciding on manufacturing and the trades (which was in her career background), she set to out to work. Today she has presented more keynote presentations at national conferences than she ever did as a generalist.

Want to know how it happened?
