Speaker Workshop Details

(Friday) "EYE-OPENER"

Topics include:  knowing your audience; essential elements for talks; motivating people to change; getting started in creating a message; relying on the Lord;  incorporating honesty and humor; getting to the heart of the message that people need to hear, organizing a talk, identifying the message that God has built into your life, and creative methods to get your point across.

 (Saturday) "EXPLORATIONS"

 Exploring Your Personal Message to Take It Deeper

During this class, we help you develop YOUR PERSONAL talk from your greatest passion, personal lessons learned and your heart's calling from the Lord. These methods can then be utilized to develop other talks on your own in the future.

What to bring to the workshop:

Bible (maybe two translations), concordance, your favorite verse,  an Interlinear Bible (if you have one), a lesson God has taught you in the last year or two, your favorite Bible character, and an open heart to learn!

Dress is casual.  Brunch snacks and lunch are served. A notebook of materials is provided with new notes each day.

Step Up -  This workshop has only three participants and gives an opportunity for each  to present a 30-minute talk for evaluation and encouragement.   The Speaker Workshop is a pre-requisite to taking  Step-Up.  People have said that this event has been a turning point in their ministry.


Step Up Details

Evaluation of Content and Delivery

"Step-Up" participants come prepared to present a 30 minute talk for encouragement and evaluation. Guidelines for evaluation are given during  Speaker Workshops (a prerequisite for this class).

The presentation is made as "real" as possible with a podium, a microphone and a taping of the message.  In addition, speakers need to use props, present a power point, and bring audience notes for each participant.  

          This workshop is one-day and is held on a Friday or a  Saturday. Only three participants are included in this class.  

Classes are held in Bellingham, WA

Our New Mentoring Program

     Many speakers have requested some one-on-one time with seasoned professional speakers to better build their messages. Various speakers who could be your mentor are available in Oregon and Washington at this time.

       If you are close....we will meet with you in person. If you are far away....we will allow you to send a video for evaluation and encouragement. ($35 an hour)

      It is suggested that you complete Speaker Workshop  before meeting with a mentor. This is a great step to take after the Speaker Workshop and before or after Step Up.

    Please contact our director for more information at Coordinator@nwspeakers.com to set up a Mentoring Appointment.   Or  call 360-966-0203 Christie Miller.
