The Speaker Sisterhood is a network of speaking clubs for women who want to discover, awaken, and create their voice through the art of public speaking. It's also the company I founded in late 2016! It's a training ground for almost 200 women who are on a journey of self-discovery.
In this five-part series, you'll hear from the women of the Speaker Sisterhood as they deliver powerful speeches and discuss the process of arriving at their topic. Their stories are personal, real, and brave. The women are discovering what's inside of them and sharing it with the world. You don't want to miss this series.
In part 1, you'll hear from members Alicia Davis and Beth Fairservis.

A big part of becoming a well-known speaker is getting yourself in front of people and being seen. However, being visible can be scary! Where do you go? What do you say? How do you do it well? In today's episode, I interview Ed Evarts, an author, speaker, and leadership coach and we get into this sticky subject. His newest book, Raise Your Visibility & Value: Uncover the Lost Art of Connecting on the Job includes his "Seven Visibility Accelerators" and he shows us how to create that visibility we're looking for. The seven are:
#1: Introduce yourself
#2: Be accessible
#3: Be responsive
#4: Interact with others
#5: Participate with a purpose
#6: Engage with industry associations
#7: Manage your reputation
Ed shares great tips and stories to emphasize the seven accelerators and even shares a few mistakes he sees people make so we can be more successful at following his advice. If you're trying to build your brand as a speaker, today's episode is for you. Learn more about Ed Evarts and get his book here: http://www.excellius.com
