Event Details

Arrival is from 6.00pm so you can network and pick the brains of your peers over a hot beverage. The meeting starts promptly at 6.30pm.

Helping us to speak more and speak better this month we have:

Stuart Harris

“Would you be willing to tell me where to go?”

So, you have hundreds or possibly even thousands of connections on LinkedIn and elsewhere (spreadsheets, Google Docs, business cards wrapped in an elastic band in a drawer somewhere). 

How can you use those contacts to find new leads and turn them from suspects to prospects then to customers and client and then advocates?

Stuart as the answers.

• Learn Stuart’s top tips of how to use an inexpensive CRM system to contact your contacts
• Find out how in the first hour of using his first CRM system Stuart got a red hot lead from a guy he’d not spoken to in 4 years

Stuart delivers Keynotes Speeches and Workshops across the world and has designed and delivered Training and One-to-One Coaching programmes for people in Sales & Customer Service roles.

He works with some of the largest Call Centres in the UK and India and with many Small Businesses and Individuals who don’t want to sell, but know they have to. That is if they want to see their business not just stand still but develop into the business that it can and should be.

His goal is simple, work with his clients to Attract, Develop & Retain More Customers

Mel Sherwood

Off Stage Secrets for On Stage Success

How do you prepare for a speech or training session? Are you focusing only on the content and missing out on vital preparation that will help to bring your message to life? Often it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it that determines whether your audience will listen to you. 

Of course your material is brilliant but if your delivery doesn’t engage your audience, the best content in the world will never be properly heard. 

In this fun and interactive session, you will learn how to:

• prepare your body so you can move and gesture with impact
• develop your voice so that it is stronger, freer and more expressive
• manage your mind so you are fully present, centred and focused and can easily connect with your audience

Mel Sherwood is on a mission to help ambitious entrepreneurs and business professionals to take centre stage, embrace the spotlight and present clearly, confidently and credibly. Through her interactive keynotes, masterclasses and workshops, she reveals valuable tools and techniques that support individuals and organisations to design and deliver winning pitches and presentations.

Currently PSA Scotland Regional President, Mel is a multi-award winning speaker, trainer and coach with over 20 years’ experience in business and a background as an actor, presenter and singer. 

There won't be a showcase this month but something a little different. The annual Speaker Factor competition is on the horizon and to help Speaker Factor entrants craft their speeches we have a past winner to inspire you. But that doesn't mean the rest of us won't learn from:

Sharon Amesu
