GROW YOUR SPEAKING BUSINESS FAST
The MOST IMPORTANT SPEAKING EVENT OF THE YEAR
We know COVID-19 dramatically changed the way you run your business – and #INFLUENCE2020 changed how we’re delivering the content you need now in order to be successful. Save your travel expenses, and join us for a unique, unmissable virtual experience that emphasizes content and techniques for both making money now and laying the groundwork to thrive in the future.
Months of NEW Content
What people are saying
“In some respects, the virtual value has exceeded the live presentations, as I am able to pause and repeat key points that the presenters have made. I can also see entire presentations again, and I already reviewed several for a second time. I am amazed at the value I’ve received for just $497.”
—William “T” Thompson, JD, CSP
“AN INSANE RETURN ON INVESTMENT!”
2020 is set to be the greatest return on investment for an INFLUENCE event to date. The content has never been better (and more relevant), the cost has never been lower, and the convenience factor has never been higher.
This is the lowest price INFLUENCE will ever be. We have slashed the ticket price for this year’s INFLUENCE by more than half! What this means is that if you are able to book even ONE speaking engagement as a result of the skills you learn, you will be able to pay for the cost of your ticket 3x over (at least!)
More content + lower investment = Insane ROI.
Was your business transformed by COVID-19? So was ours. That is why in March of 2020 we completely pivoted our content to ensure that professional speakers continue to thrive in this new virtual environment.
For example, one of our favorite speakers was set to give a presentation this year called “Storyboarding Your Sizzle Reel.” When we decided to update our format, he immediately pivoted to the more topical theme: “How to Set Up Your Virtual Speaking Studio Without Breaking The Bank.”
Here is a list of things YOU WON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT during the course of #INFLUENCE2020:
• Travel Time and Expenses (no crowded planes or smelly Ubers!)
• Food and Drink Budget (peace out inflated hotel prices!)
• Hotel Costs (and sleeping in your own bed!)
• Opportunity Costs (no time away from family or clients this year!)
• Missed Speakers or Important Sessions (you really can have it all)
• Critical Information Lost (Some Topics Which Could Save Your Business)
Reminder: Your INFLUENCE 2020 ticket grants you 24/7 access to all recordings, resources and the INFLUENCE community until September 3, 2020.

A QUICK QUESTION
Here are 3 common questions we’ve been asked about INFLUENCE 2020.
EVERYTHING IS ONLINE? Won’t I get bored?
Answer: If you’re imagining a talking head droning on and on while you try not to check your social media, you’re not thinking big enough. We are presenting our material in a variety of formats (keynotes, panel discussions, “hotseat sessions,” interviews) to keep you engaged, asking questions, and having fun.
WILL THere be networking opportunities?
Answer: We know how important hallway conversations and meet-ups are to you, and this is something we’ve thought a lot about. Here’s how we solved the problem:
- Smaller breakout sessions which are an opportunity for you to network with and get to know other speakers from around the world.
- Virtual Happy Hours, Dance Parties, and a Talent / No Talent Show to keep you engaged, connected, and having fun.
- A curated Facebook group to help you connect, ask questions, and share insights together, plus the chance to “rub shoulders” and get advice from established speakers.
is this event only about virtual speaking?
Answer: This event is just as much about growing your business as it is about thriving during a virtual environment.
Even though we’re catering our event this year to questions surrounding how to maintain a successful speaking business when live speaking events aren’t available to most speakers, there is going to be no shortage of foundational content and principles that every successful speaker needs to know in order to become a better speaker and run a better business.

Some of our VIRTUAL BREAKOUT SPEAKERS
“It knocked me out”
“The call with Joe Calloway felt ‘one-on-one’ and different from a large ballroom. It was like he was in my office with me. Talking and inspiring me. It knocked me out and it will be my lasting memory of INFLUENCE 2020.”
—Jason Hewlett, CSP, CPAE
INFLUENCE MAIN EVENT SPEAKERS
What if I can’t attend one of the sessions, will there be a replay available?
Yes! You can watch most of the sessions as early as one business day after it airs, and will have access until August 30, 2020. his, of course, includes most elements of The Main Event, taking place between August 1 – August 3. Sessions not included: After Parties, Meet the Pros, Digital Dine Arounds, and the Talent / No Talent Show.
Part of the reason I attend Influence each year is networking with other speakers. How will that work this year?
We get this question a lot and we have made a huge effort to create online spaces where attendees can connect socially and professionally. While you’ll meet plenty of other speakers in our breakout sessions, we’ve also created virtual social events, and have an exclusive Facebook group where you can e-Meet other speakers, ask for guidance and support, or just swap exciting stories.
HOW WILL THIS YEAR’S CONTENT BE DIFFERENT THAN PRIOR YEARS? IS IT RELEVANT TO MY BUSINESS RIGHT NOW AMIDST COVID-19?
Aside from the much lower cost, dozens of our attendees have emailed us and left comments that this is the BEST content they have EVER seen come from NSA. Covid-19 has completely changed the speaking industry by eliminating large gatherings. That is why over 50% of this year’s content is customized to help you not just survive, but THRIVE during and after this difficult time: How to deliver a great virtual speaking gig, how to book virtual speaking events (including at-home demo reels), and how to set up the tech and a professional home speaking environment without breaking the bank.
What technology and internet speed is needed to attend this event?
You will need a phone, tablet, or desktop computer equipped with Zoom, as well as a high-speed internet connection of at least 3/mbps.
WITH THE AMOUNT OF TIME I ALREADY SPEND ON ZOOM CALLS AND VIDEO CONFERENCING, I’M WORRIED ABOUT DIGITAL BURNOUT. ARE YOU DOING ANYTHING TO ADDRESS THIS?
This is a great question, and something we’ve worked really hard on this year. Granted, while all content will be delivered virtually this year, we have gone to great lengths to create a diverse experience that will keep you engaged, entertained, and help you learn as much as possible.
For starters, we have three different kinds of presentation format: A) prerecorded live discussions; B) webinar-style presentations and C) oom meetings (aka “Hollywood Squares”) which have a more intimate and accessible feeling.
Second, the Zoom meetings are broken down into four different types: 1) Keynote Presentation; 2) Panel Discussion; 3) “Hotseat” (an opportunity to be invited to participate live on camera to receive real-time feedback and constructive critique to make you a better speaker, and help you run a better business); and 4) Interview series where we do a deep dive on one specific topic.
