Accelerate Your Business! What Patrick Henry, Vernice Armour and Sarah Michel Have in Common

By Mary Foley 

As someone who lives in Virginia, the name Patrick Henry conjures up the American forefather whose last statement at the end of a rousing speech changed the tide of colonists' attitude towards the British. You know the line - "Give me liberty, or give me death!"
So, what in the world do Patrick Henry, Vernice Armour and Sarah Michel have in common? The 2012 NSA Annual Convention this July 14-17 in Indianapolis!
Seriously. You see the 2012 NSA Convention Chair is none other than speaker Patrick Henry. Take a look at the quick video and you can imagine that this Patrick Henry could say "Give me ways to accelerate my speaking career, or give me a ticket home!" One of the general session keynotes (to over 1200) is Vernice "Fly Girl" Armour who shared to one of our biggest audiences at the February NSA VA chapter meeting. And, if you made our May meeting you heard about meeting trends from meeting planner and speaker Sarah Michel, who is a major part of the convention's new Learning Lounge with 15 - 18 min "power talks" spread across a ballroom. I'd like to think that NSA VA gave the big dogs some practice before they rock it at 2012 NSA Convention! 
So, have you decided to attend the convention? Have you even looked into it 
You only have a few days until June 20th to get the Advanced Rate so make sure to take a look at the Full Scheduleto see all the topics and presenters. In fact, even if you CAN'T GO to the convention, take a look because the topics covered at convention give you an indication of what's happening in the speaking profession and skills you need to have to stay useful and relevant. 
If you can go, register online ASAP or call NSA at (480) 968-2552. And just like at the Indianapolis 500 race event, get a move on!
