Hi, Speaker Friends! Last weekend was my last event of the spring speaking season. It was a wonderful event, and I was thrilled to have my first event outside the US. My Canadian hosts were charming, and it thrills my wander-lusting (a label my grandmother gave me) soul to say I’m now an international speaker!
At several of my spring events, event planners came up with some truly innovative ways to let their women know me ahead of time. I was inspired by them and by an excellent post by Gina Duke in womensministry.net’s weekly tips. Click here to read the article. *There’s usually a timeframe these articles are available, so read it today before it’s gone.
Angela Donadio, a Next Step client, friend, worship leader & speaker, used Facebook in the most unique way I’ve seen. Check this out:
Isn’t that an awesome idea?! Angela had me send several questions that related to my talk, and women could enter for the giveaway with a comment or like.
I’m going to use these ideas to create a PDF on my “For Event Planners” page on my website so that I can help planners with their attendance. Do you have anything you’re doing to help planners engage women before your events? I’d love to hear your ideas.
- As I mentioned, I just finished my last speaking event for spring, but I’m hitting my limitations in a big way. Summer is here. Boys are home. Book launch and She Speaks are coming fast!! So… I’m going to take a hiatus from blogging here for the summer. If you’re subscribed, you’ll see me pop back into your email box again come fall. If you’re not, this would be a great time to subscribe so that you don’t miss a thing in our Speaker Girl Community in the fall.
