I've long been a member of the National Speakers Association (NSA) which is the leading organization for professional speakers. At this year's annual convention, I had the honor to introduce Terri Sjodin as she was inducted into the CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame held at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis, IN.

Terri was one of five recipients which include: Peter Sheahan, Ross Shafer, Steve Gilliland, & Sally Hogshead.

 

Terri with introducers (from left to right): Mark Mayfield, Harvey Mackay, & Tim Gard.

Terri recently wrote a national bestselling book, called Small Message, Big Impact, which is now being released with Penguin/Portfolio Publishing. This book provides an entertaining, straightforward, and practical how-to guide on effectively communicating a critical message in a short period of time. Terri, a former debater and talented communicator, gives readers an inspiring new perspective on the power of what she calls the "Elevator Speech Effect" and shows them how to employ this amazing little tool to create influence in today's market. If you speak to anyone during your day and are ever asked what you do or what you sell, don't hesitate to order your copy today please visit: http://bit.ly/bYXnqU

 "Don't just think of an elevator speech as a generic tool you use in chance moments-consider the concept as a strategy to manage multiple talking points and to communicate more complex ideas as well." 

 

   

Don't let the title fool you
