At LMBN we encourage entrepreneurs to expand their horizons or promote their business through our membership and networking groups. That being said not everyone will be interested in your message or business and just assuming we all want to hear your message is bad marketing. One of the best ways to promote your business without sounding like a commercial is through an educational presentation. Each of our LMBN groups has 10-15 minute presentation component included in our itinerary. This is a perfect place for you to practice delivering a presentation or promoting your business. Below are the rules from the group to become a speaker and also information to help you create your presentation. If you need more information please feel free to contact the Speaker Coordinator for the group listed below. We look forward to hearing about you and your business in an educational way.
If you are interested in presenting to a group please talk to the Group Champion in charge of the group or one of the Board Members.
We don’t ask much but to present to the group we ask for a few qualifications to be met. We have now added sponsorship to the speakers so that those presenting will also have more visibility. To learn more about the sponsorship program please visit out sponsorship page.
- You must be a member in good standing and have attended at least two meetings within a 12 month period.
- You must be paid up to date for any membership fees for that period. Payments owed within a 30 day period will be allowed.
- You must be a member of the group you are presenting to.
- You must sponsor the meeting you will be presenting for.
That is it, you are welcome to present to all groups,
if you are a member of each one within that 12 month period.
We ask that your presentation be 10-15 minutes in length and educational in nature. For instance if you are a Mortgage Specialist you might present on choosing the right terms for a mortgage, Finding a good broker, etc. You will of course look like the expert which is how you will promote your business. In order to choose topics of interest we may try to choose topics that have not been heard before.
We have had many topics on finance, mortgages, real estate, personal growth, health and wellness. If you present on these topics please try to change the presentation to make it interesting to the group. This is especially true if presenting to multiple LMBN groups.
Please ensure your Meet-up Group profile is up to date and complete. Our Speaker Coordinator will contact you approximately two weeks before your presentation as a reminder. If you can’t make the meeting please inform us so we can arrange for another speaker, also do not present to our group and then never show your face again. Not only is it rude but you have done nothing for your business.
If you need help creating your presentation or picking a topic you may want to watch the videos Bruce created on how to create a presentation. Below the videos is Bruce’s outline from the presentation that you can view to help create your own.
