A big “Thank You” to Alyssa Magnotti and Peter Chee of ThinkSpace for inviting me to speak to their members and guests at yesterday's brown bag lunch talk that offered tips to get known as an expert in your field.   Here are just a few of the wonderful comments guests shared after enjoying the session:

“You're the awesome rock star of PR.  Elated to attend yet another tip and fact-filled workshop talk with Nancy at the helm.  She truly is the rock star of PR.”  — Amy Woidtke, EcoKind Design.com

“The ThinkSpace seminar I attended gave me at least five solid action items that I can do today to boost my business and establish myself as the expert in my field.” — Sukie Baxter, SukieBaxter.com


“Nancy's presentation was informative and entertaining — a great way to spend a lunch hour!”
— Stacy McClure, Stacie S. McClure CPA, PLLC, StacieCPA.com

If you would like to be in the audience the next time I speak, here are two events coming up quickly.  Just visit the links for all the relevant details.

Wed. Jan. 20 – Small Business Success Telesummit at noon PST

Friday, Feb. 5 – I'll be the lunch keynote speaker at the Olympia Business Summit.

And, if you missed my latest radio interview about writing a rock star bio, you can source and listen  to the Jan. 5 interview — the first one of 2010 for Dresser After Dark and for me — at this link.    If you love listening to audio files, check out all the great topics newly posted at my DIY Publicity Store from the best of my 2009 interviews and podcasts with experts so you can listen in anytime and anywhere and benefit.

By the way, I'd love to invite dozens and dozens of speaking engagements and radio interviews to empower buzz seeking business owners and experts with the tips, tools and resources they need to earn expert status, create fabulous bios, and more.  If you have interest, check out my speaker page, and get in touch so we can set a date for me to make a contribution.

Authentic Visibility Question of the Day:  If you are an aspiring or thriving speaker, is your speaker page up and running to make it easy for meeting planners and others to see, hear and celebrate the message you share with your audiences?  Do you have credible audience testimonials posted so you can relieve any doubt on the decision maker's part that you are absolutely the perfect speaker to add to their programming plans?  If not, take the opportunity to upgrade your speaker page or create one so you can welcome all the speaking engagements you seek in 2010 and beyond.
