NSA Influence 2020

50+ PRESENTERS. 5 LEARNING TRACKS. ONE UNFORGETTABLE EVENT.   
AUGUST 1-4 | WASHINGTON D.C.

VISION.
CLARITY.
FOCUS.

GROWTH STARTS HERE.

You’re a professional speaker, and you need to learn how to grow and diversify your business in a quickly evolving market. And beyond that, you need a clear and focused vision to succeed in today’s business world.

INFLUENCE is an annual experience designed to help excellent speakers (like you) answer the questions they’ve had to ask in their speaking careers. It’s a chance to learn from the best and brightest in the industry, to share ideas and develop new strategies that work for you and your business, and to network with a community of peers who kind of just get what you do. (And we know that not everybody just gets it.)  

With five comprehensive learning tracks, INFLUENCE 2020 can help you focus and clarify your speaking goals, run your business more efficiently, deliver your stories more effectively, use technology to set yourself apart, balance your work and home life, AND kill your social media game. Join us in D.C. this August for an unforgettable, unmissable event for all speakers.
