National Speakers Association-NYC Chapter Blog Post

Two days after the book event at the Historic Stonewall Inn Mari and I found ourselves at the Scandinavia House on Park Avenue where I had the chance to speak to my fellow speakers at the monthly meeting of the New York City chapter of the National Speakers Association.  For me, this was one of those “full circle” moments of my life.  You see, there is history that I have with the NSA from a few years back when I was vainly trying to make a transition (ha!) from my unfulfilling corporate gig and switch to a career as a speaker. The NSA was a place where I was able to find valuable information and insights on what one needs to do to develop a successful speaking practice.  It was during this period of my life that I met and became friends with Jeanne Stafford, who is now the President of the NYC chapter and was beyond instrumental in having me speak there.  Because of the pandemic, it was two years in the making, but worth the wait and then some!  Thank You, Jeanne!!
