Visioning Retreat – Private

Strategic Speaking Visioning Retreat

Greetings, my entrepreneurial friends!

You’re facing one or more of these problems regarding your speaking:

  1. You want to be doing more of it, but you don’t know how or where
  2. You want to leverage the speaking you’re already doing into further business, stronger connections, or additional products and services, but you don’t know where to begin
  3. You have speaking engagements on your calendar but you’re not sure you’re making the kind of impact you want to make on your audiences
  4. You know you need a plan to create a path to speaking success and you could use some practical and customized guidance

Does this sound like you?

You would love to gain some perspective on where you’re headed, develop a vision for your speaking and really dive into growing the speaking aspect of your business or job, but how?

My Strategic Speaking Visioning Retreat will give you the support and accountability you need to achieve your most pressing speaking goals over the next 6-12 months.

lb-circleHi there! I’m Lisa Braithwaite, M. A., Public Speaking Coach and Trainer. I’ve been coaching, training and mentoring entrepreneurs and professionals since 2005 to help them create memorable and engaging presentations in order to build their businesses through speaking.

Sometimes my clients are working on high-stakes presentations or workshops that will provide greater visibility in the world and a chance to get known for their work and their message. Sometimes my clients are simply wanting to be seen and heard at their networking meetings in order to make a connection with their peers. Some of my clients get paid for speaking; others speak in their jobs or for their business.

No matter what level you’re at in your speaking, there’s one thing that all speakers can benefit from: Creating and following a clear vision and plan for how to achieve our speaking goals!

Why visioning?

What do you want to achieve with your speaking over the rest of this year and into the next? Grow your credibility as an expert in your field? Gain clients and fans? Promote your book, your program, your product? Create a new speech for a new audience that will propel you to a whole new level of visibility? Refresh a languishing income stream? Repurpose your content into new offerings?

In order to achieve the success that you’re seeking – as you define it – you must create a vision of that success. If you don’t know what you want, it’s going to be difficult to create a plan or a path to get there.

Now, I happen to believe that just creating a vision isn’t enough. You have to take tangible actions that will lead you to that final destination. Creating a vision helps give you focus and direction; it reminds you of what you want and of what you don’t want, so you can avoid the distractions and “bright shiny objects” that lure you away from your path.

Sometimes it seems like there are endless possibilities and opportunities, and you don’t know how to choose or even how to narrow down your choices.

Creating a vision allows you to say “no” to those opportunities that don’t fit and “yes” to those that do. It gives you a framework to narrow down the possibilities and make informed decisions.

The Strategic Speaking Private Visioning Retreat provides a private individual coaching environment for achieving clarity and direction in your speaking.

You will leave the retreat with a clear vision for the next 6-12 months of your speaking, and a clear purpose and plan.

Some things we might work on together:

  • Selecting a topic
  • Getting clear on your core message
  • Narrowing down a niche
  • Choosing conferences or events for speaker submissions
  • Mapping out a plan to find speaking engagements
  • Determine what collateral materials are most effective for promoting your work (website, videos, freebies, other content)
  • Making a short talk longer or a long talk shorter
  • Creating a vision and plan for complementary products and services to support your speaking, like books, e-books, webinars, live trainings, recordings, videos and more
  • Prioritize and schedule goals for the next 6-12 months so you which opportunities to take and which to pass on

What you get:

  • A half-day meeting in person in Ojai, California, where we’ll create your vision and plan for the next 6-12 months of your speaking—including lunch or breakfast (your choice!)
  • Your personalized StrengthsFinderⓇ Top 5 Assessment and 1-hour coaching session (scheduled before your visioning retreat), which we’ll use to determine how you’re applying your personal strengths to your speaking
  • Two follow-up calls, 30 minutes each, for accountability and action-taking
  • A copy of my book, Presenting for Humans: Insights for Speakers on Ditching Perfection and Creating Connection
  • Whatever materials, bonus webinars and audios, presentation review, personal introductions and other resources we determine to be necessary to achieve your vision

Bonus – just added:

A complementary seat in my Presenting for Humans Success Circle (aka “Perfectionist Speakers Anonymous!”)—a Presenting for Humans discussion group

We’ll spend the first half of our session on your vision. What do you need to do and who do you need to be to make your vision a reality? You’ll think bigger than you ever have before!

We’ll spend the second half of our session on your challenges and mindset work. We’ll brainstorm and solve your biggest speaking dilemma or problem that’s keeping you from moving forward with your vision.

We’ll end our session with a delicious lunch to celebrate our work!
