SPEAKING PROFESSIONALS

TAMPA, FLORIDA

FIRST THINGS FIRST

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM SYLVIE

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILL OUT THE APPLICATION FOR THE MASTERMIND RETREAT

Dear …………. [fill in your name],

Embarking on a speaking career, you may have been enticed by the allure of an easy, lucrative, and enjoyable profession. However, as you may have discovered, this industry is not just rewarding and fun but also fiercely competitive, challenging, and at times, both daunting and exhilarating. Success in this field demands more than hard work, perseverance, dedication, and a touch of luck; it requires a burning passion for your subject and a confident presentation style. If you find yourself on the brink, poised for that crucial leap to reach the apex of your speaking career, I warmly invite you to apply for the upcoming “PEAK” speaker mastermind retreat.

“PEAK” – a symbol of the utmost achievement, representing the summit of professional excellence and the ultimate pinnacle in the speaking industry.

You are an ideal fit for “PEAK” if you are a professional speaker or trainer aiming to:

  • set, command, and elevate your speaking fees.
  • broaden your influence across corporate, association, government, and educational sectors.
  • stand out in the industry by establishing yourself and your topic as a benchmark of expertise.
  • hone your value proposition to captivate potential clients instantly.
  • increase your visibility through connections with bureaus, meeting professionals, and showcasing opportunities.
  • upgrade your promotional materials, from websites and landing pages to social media, email marketing, brochures, and beyond, to amplify your speaking talents and expertise.
  • diversify your revenue sources with innovative upsell products, services, and programs.
  • leverage referrals, spinoff opportunities, joint ventures, cross-promotions, and strategic alliances for business growth.
  • adopt efficient tools and processes for streamlined, profitable business operations.
  • join a network of high-caliber speakers, all determined to make a significant leap forward in their business ambitions.

This mastermind retreat is NOT for you if you

  • are at the very beginning of your entrepreneurial or business journey, without any existing experience or expertise in speaking or training. This retreat is tailored for those who have already successfully embarked on their speaking careers and are looking to elevate them to the next level.
  • are primarily seeking to improve stagecraft, content delivery, or other performance-related aspects of speaking. While these are important, our focus at this retreat is squarely on the business side of building a successful speaking career.
  • are not ready to invest the necessary work, time, and dedication required to capitalize on what you will learn and implement after the retreat. Success in this field is a marathon, not a sprint, and this retreat is for those prepared to put in the effort for long-term rewards.
  • are not open to giving and receiving constructive feedback. Our retreat thrives on dynamic peer-to-peer learning and relies heavily on the exchange of honest insights and feedback among participants. It’s designed for those who are comfortable and eager to engage actively with peers in discussions, exercises, and reciprocal critique.
  • are more comfortable in high-drama environments. We prioritize and cherish a peaceful, drama-free setting, conducive to productive growth and positive engagement. Our focus is on creating a tranquil and supportive atmosphere, ideal for those who thrive in calm, reflective, and collaborative spaces.

In addition to covering your travel expenses and dedicating your valuable time, a one-time contribution of $2,800 is required to participate in the retreat. This isn’t just a fee; it’s a direct investment in the future of our industry. Every dollar of profit is proudly donated to the NSA Central Florida Speaker University and the scholarship program I had the privilege of initiating. This program supports a group of driven and talented professionals at the start of their careers who are passionate about entering our industry but lack the financial resources to attend the academy program.

Thank you for considering joining us in this enriching experience. Should you have any questions or need further information, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Love, Sylvie
