Speakers for Speakers
As President of the St. Louis Gateway Chapter of the National Speakers Association it is my privilege to preside over the monthly meetings. These meetings serve as valuable resources for our members. Each month we bring in a well-respected, experienced speaker who shares his or her knowledge with the group.
We meet on the first Friday of each month at the Commerce Bank building at 300 North Kirkwood Road in Kirkwood, Missouri. The night before the meeting we have a board meeting and then dinner with our guest speakers.
The morning portion of the meeting is spent with the speakers addressing the gathering. These range from our national members, aspiring speakers and guests. We start by having general introductions, followed by a few brief business announcements and then move on to our program.
October 2017 Program
In October we were privileged to have as our speaker the world-renowned Thomas Winninger. Thomas is an award-winning speaker who has made a difference in this world. He is a marketing strategist who has worked with some of the best and biggest corporations in America.
Thom believes that everyone has a gift that is given to them at birth. Thom feels that the purposeful application of this gift is the key to finding fulfillment, joy, and meaning to life.
His program was devoted to helping our members learn how to better develop their own business model. The crowd came away with a lot of good ideas. It was clearly a hit.
Thom’s own gift is the ability to help people look within themselves, unpack their gift, and apply its purpose to realize their full potential. His new book is entitled “Your True DNA! Discovering God’s Gift Within You!” It is now available for purchase.
After the formal program our guest speakers spend the afternoon in a mastermind session with the local nation members. We spend that time eating lunch and informally chatting about how to better bring our message to audiences around the country.
As President I have the added benefit of a Board of Directors who contribute greatly to the smooth administration of the Chapter. The Board is comprised of professional speakers who give freely of their time in order to help all of the members. I could not do my job without them.
