Over the next few days I'll be blogging and sharing the musings I'm learning from the number #1 Speakers Convention in the world. NSA (National Speakers Association) 'Influences' Conference 2018.
After a short 1:1 breakfast with the Global President of the Speakers Federation; sharing ideas about the International Convention 2018, I joined the 50 other 'Million Dollar Speakers Group', (an invite only day) consortium of speakers sharing best practice.
First was Dr. Nido R. Qubein professional Board Member who is the current chairman for Highpoint University, among others. http://www.highpoint.edu/president/ Very informing about the benefits of being on a Board and the value that comes with it.

Next speaker was: Andrew Kunov - CEO & Founder Silicon Valley Innovation Centre sharing about how 40% of Fortune 500 corporates will disappear in 10 years and now we are living in an idea economy where success is defined be the ability to turn ideas into value faster than your competition - The next speaker was more of an interview with the ex CEO of Disneyland sharing about Magical experiences: Hear it 7 times then reenforced every 30 days. Processes, scripts and step by steps all in the processes of the company. Not just a ‘How too, video’ but a ‘Why too, videos’!
The opening Ceremony for the conference was nothing short of OUTSTANDING.
Emmanual Kelly (singer): He was great and moved us all. Do you remember this???
Next speaker was another Australian Yassmin Abdel-Magied who wowed us with her grace and humility sharing her world of being a Muslim Woman Engineer. (I arranged dinner with her and other Australians tonight...) her TED Talk link : https://www.ted.com/talks/yassmin_abdel_magied_what_does_my_headscarf_mean_to_you
Last speaker was possibly the best speaker I have ever seen in recent years. Just amazing. His name is Derreck Kayongo: http://www.globalsoap.org/about/history/ Brilliant at his craft as a speaker and had the entire audience of 1200 speakers from 18 countries, spellbound. Extraordinary to watch us all be inspired and transformed.
MORE TO COME...
