This month:


Effective and Fun Training Techniques that Drive Revenue





Led by Steve Cohn, CSP, CCXP


A top speaker was asked many years ago by a new NSAGA associate, “Do you think doing training as part of your speaking business is a smart move?” The top speaker answered, “Yeah, if you want to eat.” Today, as clients look for more content from speakers they hire, having training as part of your repertoire is essential to success. But while being the “sage on the stage” makes a good speaking, it’s only part of the requirements for training. In this master class, Steve Cohn, CSP will talk about the techniques that he has learned, used and is still learning during the past 21 years in the business. Among the topics:

  • Moving from being a speaker to being a trainer to being a facilitator
  • How to make your program more about the audience than it is about you
  • How to use stories in training as opposed to how speakers use stories in speaking
  • Managing the balance between discussion, lecture, exercises, stories and time
  • Managing the room
  • How to use games to gain participation
  • Using humor – the most valuable training technique
  • And anything you ask him about






If you are a Professional Member, registration opens to you exclusively for the first week. Don't delay! Register today!


While these classes are designed for professional members with established speaking businesses, you may attend if you are an associate or speaker resource.

Each class is $50 for professional members and $100 for associates and speaker resources. Guests are not permitted.
