Lunching with Lions: How to Survive and Thrive at Networking
Like everything in your business, networking requires awareness of your goals and objectives so that you can be purposeful and intentional about aligning your activities for success. I’ve gone from being terrified to network to creating scripts and systems that take the sting out of the fear and help me grow my professional connections and my brand. In this talk, I share my own journey; the evolutionary reasons why networking is so hard for so many people; and how you can use the winning trifecta of awareness, purpose, and intent to build a success networking practice for yourself. Your members will learn how to identify the right connections, how to evaluate the right groups, and how to leverage the investment of their time and money to get the best results.
Your members will learn:
The 5 C's of networking and how you can use them to grow your influence
Real tips and techniques you can put to work right away to build stronger connections

Do you feel undeserving of your success?
Do you worry that you'll be exposed as a fraud?
Do you assume others think you’re more capable than you actually are?
If so, you are likely struggling with Impostor Syndrome, a term for the feelings of self-doubt and inadequacy many professionals face, particularly as we reach higher levels of leadership. In this webinar session, you'll learn common triggers of Impostor Syndrome, including feeling different from the dominant culture around you. This is why Impostor Syndrome is so pervasive among women in traditionally male-dominated fields. You’ll also learn strategies to build your confidence and manage these disruptive feelings so that you can effectively achieve your career goals
Overcoming the Overwhelm - Why Doing Everything Yourself Costs You More and How to Reduce Your Workload
If you have ever felt like you have been working so hard for your business but you are not gaining any ground on your goals for growth, then this talk is for you.
As business owners, we fill our days doing “The Stuff” that has to get done. We do everything from filing and answering phones, marketing, bookkeeping, and sales. The challenge is that these are not the things we want to fill our days with. We want to do that ‘ONE THING’ that we started our business for. We want to be in service to our clients delivering our products and brilliance.
Our dilemma is, if we spend our time delivering our product or service we don’t have time to do all the other stuff, like marketing and sales calls. Without doing the work of all the hats in your business there is no way to have consistent cash flow and definitely even harder to grow a business. We feel stuck because we never have time to make our businesses bigger and because it is not bigger we cannot afford to hire someone to do the work.
In this talk, Barb Stuhlemmer is going to lead us through 5 steps to identify our CEO Hat and the key ways we can get help in our business so we can grow it faster.
You will leave with:
- an understanding of what you do best,
- where you should put your efforts,
- plus three key ways to do less in your business while you grow.
Have a growth plan, working smarter, and providing better service for your clients is the goal to owning the business of your dreams.

Would you like to be recognized as confident, poised, and powerful? Do you need to persuade others for part of your job as meeting professional? Can command the room? As a professional, when it comes to advancing your career or business, doing a good job and mastering the craft are just not enough. You need a plan that helps to highlight your value, contribution, and expertise. Your personal brand and presence have a massive impact on how you are seen and respected by others. The ability to influence and get your ideas heard can make or break your career. This interactive, high-energy, hands-on, session, pulls back the curtain on how to create an image that speaks to the level of professionalism you need to power up your presence. After attending this session you will:
· Create a professional persona that conveys confidence and competence
· Develop ways to adapt your personality style to successfully engage with others at all levels

Do you ever find yourself in the audience at a speaking event thinking "THAT SHOULD BE ME UP THERE!"?
Come on. Be honest.
You've got this business. You have something to say—an idea, a story, a passion, a kernel of truth. You totally rock it with the clients you have...but you know you could do better.
You know that speaking is the best way to reach your people, to position yourself as an expert, to build some serious “Know, Like & Trust.”
And there’s someone else up there speaking and all your potential clients are running her way and inside you're screaming “HEY! OVER HERE! HIRE ME!”
Maybe you tell yourself you don't have a good story to tell. You tell yourself your nerves will betray you. You don’t want to be salesy. You’ve studied the Speak To Sell Formulas, but formulas just aren’t your thing.
And besides, the idea of BEING VISIBLE brings out your deepest darkest demons (or at least some slightly uncomfortable wonkiness) so you go home and send another email instead.
Join public speaking coach & storytelling expert Johanna Walker for a nuts & bolts, interactive, open-your-heart, take-action presentation where you’ll learn
**How to access the unwavering presence (that, btw, is your birthright) every time you take the stage
**How to know just which stories to tell, and how to tell them to connect with the audiences you know you can serve
**How to get crystal clear about the ideas you want to be known for.
