spring brings CEO and speaker secrets

We're springing forward into 2008 with more speaking engagements in March and April--both with a focus on women. I will join speechwriter Jeff Porro at the Tower Club in Tyson's Corner, Virginia, March 10 for the presentation "Take Your Next Speech from Good to Great: Speaker Secrets for Executive Women." The luncheon costs $35 for club members and $40 for non-members, and will take place from 12 noon to 2pm. Go here to register now. The presentation will help you build on your presentation skill set, avoid pitfalls and take advantage of women's particular strengths in front of an audience. Tips and advice on wardrobe, gestures and anecdote delivery, as well as using an executive speechwriter to advantage, will ensure you're an even more sought-after speaker.

In April, I'll serve as moderator and interviewer for the "CEO Insights" speaker series for the Washington chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners. This time, I'll interview Chef Nora Pouillon of Washington's Restaurant Nora, the nation's first certified-organic restaurant. Pouillon helped found the very first producer-only farmer's markets in the nation's capital, and has helped develop a number of school-based nutrition programs for children. The event takes place April 16 at Restaurant Nora, with registration and networking from 6:30pm to 7:15, and the program following. Seating is limited, and the early registration rate ends April 1; register here.
