In today’s over-crowded and competitive nutrition market, being the “expert” isn’t enough to stand out in the crowded nutrition space, gain notoriety as an expert, or lead transformative experiences. To successfully drive the dietetics profession into the next century, dietitians need to disrupt the status quo, blending thought-provoking stories with evidence-based research. Most importantly, dietitians need to use their voice to positively impact our world.

In this interactive workshop, experienced speakers will streamline their message to create an effective model to increase impact, notoriety, productivity and income. Attendees will draw on personal and professional experiences to create insights for their stories and dive into personal reflection, identifying an “idea worth spreading” aligned with their passion and purpose. They will develop a through line to connect a theme, tie each narrative element, and build their idea to have a greater impact on their audience. Participants will learn how to trim their range of speaking topics to a single, connected thread.

Using their “idea worth spreading” as the foundation, participants will use group dynamics to identify powerful and effective stories that will connect, engage, and transform audiences. Attendees will learn how to establish common ground with their audience through impactful storytelling, vulnerability, and transparency.

The Speak to Lead Workshop is a call to inspire experienced speakers to up-level their speaking engagements beyond communications mastery and expertise so they ignite transformation among their audiences. With a clear plan and unified message including an “idea worth spreading,” stories, and a call-to-action, participants will leave armed with the confidence to acquire national keynotes, negotiate their worth, and ignite change.

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Utilize the tools and techniques learned in the workshop to refine an idea worth spreading (IWS).
  • Speak with confidence and finetune a call to action that creates audience transformation and inspires lasting action.
  • Develop and streamline a signature story that not only connects and engages an audience but compels event planners to book your keynote.
