ABOUT SPEAKER 2.0 BALI RETREAT
My name is Andrew Griffiths and I’ve been a professional speaker for many years. In fact if I look back at my very first business, teaching people to SCUBA dive at the age of 18, I was a presenter. For well over 30 years I have travelled the planet presenting on many different topics. I have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars, and countless hours to become the best presenter I can possibly be.
Today I am on the speaking circuit. My client list is big and diverse including the likes of HP, CBS, L’Oreal, Telstra, St George Bank, Optus, Hertz, LJ Hooker, Remax, ING, Newscorp and hundreds of other organisations. I’ve built a strong reputation as a professional speaker because I take my speaking seriously and I am absolutely committed to being the very best I can possibly be.
I’ve been teaching others to become professional speakers for some time now. This started with teaching basic speaking skills, right through to teaching people about the business of being a professional speaker (and isn’t that a big topic). I decided to put this 4 day Bali retreat together to help people rapidly speed up their speaker trajectory by hosting an intensive speaker training experience. The group size will be small, capped at 20 people to ensure that everyone attending can get one on one time with me. I want to make absolutely certain that you leave Bali with a very clear and detailed plan of attack to help you grow your speaker business.
If this sounds like something you are interested, please take a few minutes to watch the video below. All of the relevant information can be found on this page and the booking links are at the bottom of the page.
I would love to see you at SPEAKER 2.0 in Bali. It will be the defining event in your speaker career.
PS If you watch the video below you will see what people who have attended the event have to say.
WHO IS THIS RETREAT FOR?
This retreat is perfect for anyone serious about taking their speaking career to the next level. It is really focused on people who want to be professional speakers, or perhaps people who are professional speakers already who are looking to improve their skills and grow their business. We tend to have a really diverse cross section of people, from beginners through to veteran speakers - all get incredible value from the retreat.
WHERE WILL IT BE HELD?
SPEAKER 2.0 will be held at Griya Santrian at Sanur in Bali (http://www.santrian.com/griya/rooms/). This is a very relaxed beachfront venue, with all of the typical Balinese features. The rates here are affordalbe, however the nice thing about Sanur is that there are lots of hotels, all within walking distance of this one, so really the choice is entirely up to you. There are five star right down to backpacker style accommodation. My advice is that you choose somewhere on the beachfront though.
We have negotiated a special rate at the resort - $145 USD per night for a deluxe room including all taxes. The promotional code for this is ANDREW GROUPS. And it is probably best to book it directly through their reservations email address which is:
Sanur is a beautiful place to chill out. It makes the perfect back drop for a retreat like this. The theme overall will be really casual. To recover from the classes I suggest late afternoon drinks on the beach, massages and seafood grills at any of the small restaurants lining the beach.
AS AN ADDED BONUS - BREE JAMES IS JOINING US.
A good friend of mine, Bree James, is going to be joining us. Anyone who has been to any of my Bali retreats will know Bree James. Apart from being the “go to girl” for all things Bali, she has been a professional entertainer for a long time. I’ve asked her to join us on this retreat as she brings some very unique knowledge to the table regarding stage presence, engaging audiences and self management for presenters. Bree is always a hit. Her energy and enthusiasm are generally the icing on the cake for my retreats.
HOW WILL THE DAYS WORK?
We will be kicking off at 8.30am every day, recapping the previous days work and setting the scene for the day ahead. We will be finishing by 4.00pm at the latest. Sanur is a great place to enjoy Bali, so we want to make sure you have some time to do exactly that. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are provided. We will also have a welcome dinner on the Tuesday night, and we will let you know about that a little closer to the event.
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO BE COVERING?
Well as per usual, I’ve packed a lot into these days. I am absolutely committed to giving you all of the skills and knowledge that you are going to need to be truly successful as a speaker. The following schedule should give you a pretty good idea of what we will be covering.
- MODULE 1 - The Proven “10 Step Framework’ For Developing Any Presentation For Any Situation
In the past 5 years I have trained almost 500 people on how to use this highly effective framework. It shows the real difference between being a speaker and being a world class speaker in terms of preparation, research, slide development, audience engagement and delivery. Once you know this framework, and you apply it to every speaking scenario, you will already be miles ahead of the average speaker.
- MODULE 2 - Developing Your “Signature Keynote” Presentation
All speakers need to have their own “Signature Keynote”. I will teach you how to map this out, how to structure it, how to break it into chunks to make it easier to learn, how to ensure that it flows correctly and how to deliver it for maximum impact. The process I have developed for planning a signature keynote is really simple, highly organised and once learnt, easy to apply for all future presentations that you have to prepare.
- MODULE 3 - Storytelling For Speakers
There is no doubt that storytelling is vital for great speakers - in fact it is the most important aspect of any presentation in my opinion. I’m going to explore storytelling, teach you how to get your stories out, how to deliver them, how to avoid the most common mistakes and best of all, how to really engage your audience with any story you tell. I love teaching this module - become an exceptional storyteller and you can’t help but become a sought after speaker, regardless of your topic.
- MODULE 4 - The Business of Being a Professional Speaker
This is where the rubber hits the road - the business side of things. I’ve run a one day workshop on this topic and everyone attending the retreat will get access to the recording before the retreat itself. I want to spend our time in Bali mapping out your business plan. What will you charge, how will you market yourself, how will you differentiate yourself, what will your chosen topics be and so much more? This is an exciting part of the retreat, basically we are developing your speaker business for the coming years.
- MODULE 5 - Advanced Audience Engagement and Delivery Techniques
You might have the greatest topic of all to present on, but it amounts to little if you can’t connect and engage your audience. Yes, the storytelling will certainly help, but engaging is all about delivery and this is a science that I have been working on for decades. Great presenters, and I do mean great, make it look so easy. Nothing is if course further from the truth. I’m going to show you how to engage in ways that you never imagined possible and these are the skills that will get your clients raving about you.
- MODULE 6 - Surviving and Thriving as a Professional Speaker
Being a professional speaker is not an easy road to travel. It can take a toll on you physically, it can be tough to stay relevant over a long period of time, it can have its moments when it seems like everywhere you turn there is a new speaker, talking on your topic and prepared to do it for nothing. We need to have some very clear strategies for not just surviving as professional speakers, but thriving. I’ve got some very practical tips, ideas and strategies to help you build a long and successful career as a speaker.
As well as these 6 core modules we will be doing other smaller topics including shooting videos, health and well-being as a speaker, conducting webinars, sitting on panels, technical resources, managing your voice and more. These topics will be discussed in more informal sessions conducted over the 4 day period.
NOTE: This content agenda may change during the retreat.
HOW MUCH DOES THE RETREAT COST?
The retreat fee is $2995.00. I’m only making room for 20 people for this event, to ensure we all get to spend some one on one time together over the 4 days (please note this does not include accommodation or airfares). And as a speaker, building a business around your speaking, this should be a tax deductible expense for you.
It will also include a comprehensive travel guide, a pile of resources and some follow up materials after the retreat (and a few surprises during the retreat).
