September SMC Meeting Recap

On September 26, 2013, The Sales & Marketing Council met at The University of Louisville Shelby Campus. We would like to thank our sponsors: Carpet Specialists represented by David Turner, Century Mortgage represented by Jennifer Baileys – Fuelling, Pella Windows (not present), and Royal Kitchen & Bath (not present).

Thank you to Nick Durham (a fear of public speaking coach) who gave an exceptional presentation on his creation entitled Save Me from the Naked People: The mindset of a Confident Speaker. A few of the key points he touched on were why we get nervous, and how we overcome this fear. We learned excellent methods of practicing with discomfort, practicing with the center of attention, and embracing the role of the speaker. Nick concluded his presentation with a goal, “Let your presence shine through.” We can all do this by using our expertise to deliver a clear message, and
by being passionate about what we do.

Thank you to all who were in attendance, and we look forward to seeing everyone at our next Sales & Marketing Council meeting on October 24, 2013.
