From the Prez: Here's Why Attending #Influence2018 is Essential

New this year!

    Triple Threat Breakouts
    This format gives you three experts, delivering massive value, in a single session. Each speaker will present one clear, actionable idea in 20 minutes, leaving room for Q&A at the end. Three experts. Three ideas. One session.

    Six-Figure Spotlight
    We’re bringing a brand- new format to the main stage for #Influence18. It’s called Six-Figure Spotlight. During each general session, we’re going to feature four consecutive speakers each giving a two-minute tip that has brought their business at least $25k in additional revenue. That means during each general session, we’ll be providing Influence attendees with immediate tips to grow their business by six-figures!

    Exclusive Pre-Conference “Deeper-Dive”
    Find the right contacts and turn them into leads, turn leads into qualified prospects, and turn prospects into paid speaking clients. Join Tiffany Lauer and David Avrin, CSP, for this special three-hour, pre-conference session where they have generously agreed to share their high-touch, non-automated process!

    Special Pre-Conference Foundation Session
    Expand the craft you already have and learn new techniques from the Heroic Public Speaking team through a half-day series of sessions with Amy and Michael Port and the senior faculty from Heroic Public Speaking. You’ll get to the nitty gritty of how to win over (even more) audiences and event planners alike. Dive in and become an even better public speaker than you were before—one where you can stop speaking and start performing.

    NSA Community Groups Day
    With a focus on community, we are launching the first-ever NSA Community Groups Day at Influence, where our highly valued community groups are in charge of the programming, and are given space to meet, connect, and introduce all attendees to the many wonderful parts of NSA.
