Bonus Session for all Camp NSA Attendees

Bob Pike, CSP, CPAE will provide a bonus session for NSA's chapter leaders. This session is geared for chapters who feel that the attendance at their meetings and events could be significantly improved -- but aren't quite sure how.

Each person will get a handout covering the half day workshop and Bob Pike, CSP, CPAE will provide a copy of his 250 page Marketing Seminars, Workshops, and Special Events and Conferences manual to each chapter who has someone in attendance.

The topics that will be covered in the half day would include:

  • The Eight Basic Parts of a brochure
  • Twelve Steps to Writing Powerful Copy
  • 48 Ways to Cut Costs, but not Quality
  • Eleven Pricing Considerations
  • Thirteen Timing Considerations (picking the right dates to maximize attendance)
  • Tapping the Power of Partnering
  • 6 Things You Can Ask a Speaker to Do that costs the Speaker Little or Nothing, but Can significantly Boost Attendance (almost any professional speaker can do these things as a competitive advantage to offer their own clients).
  • An orientation to the manual as an ongoing resource.

This is BONUS SESSION for Camp NSA attendees. This is being offered to you at no extra fee and you are not required to be here for this session. The session is scheduled from 8:30 am-12noon on Friday November 21, 2003.--Camp NSA begins at 2 pm-same day.
