    Speaking is among the BEST ways to share a message with more of the right people who have the potential to become paying clients.  The trouble is most aspiring speakers struggle preparing their message so they can step through the doors to big opportunity.  This presentation highlight how to get ready for opportunity before opportunity knocks so those who are serious about taking their place of bigger live and virtual stages can glide through the doors to new opportunity while showing up like total professionals from their first point of contact.

    Using examples and stories Nancy shares how coaches and consultants can prepare for opportunity to welcome the specific and terrific opportunities they were seeking.  Each case study is unpacked to highlight specific action steps that audience members can take to get ready.

    • You'll be instantly inspired to GET READY to welcome golden opportunity yourself!
    • You'll discover why having ONE juicy and relevant topic to share with the right decision maker is the best way to be of ultimate service - one and all
    • You'll learn ways to stand out from the sea of generic, non-specific speakers at first glance so you look like a rock star at HELLO -- even if you still feel like an understudy!
    • You will be able to get your Sizzling Speaker Sheet created!

    Description of Webinar

    Coach's know the importance of a clear agreement.  Ask yourself, what is the first agreement that you make with any new client?  It's your Coaching Agreement/Contract!

    Was your contract drafted or reviewed by a business lawyer who knows the coaching community?  Chances are the answer is no.  I have been reviewing coaching contracts for some time and most that I review appear to be downloaded off the internet or “borrowed” from another coach.  Invariably the contracts have major problems and expose the coach to thousands of dollars in lost revenue AND expose them to hundreds of thousands of dollars in unexpected personal liability.  I will show you the basic clauses that ought to be in every coaching contract, and a few extra nuggets that will really help you.

    Key Take Aways that Can Protect Your Business:

    • Establishing the coaching agreement.
    • Setting appropriate guidelines and parameters of the relationship including payment of fees and managing risk.
    • Drafting effective scopes of services so that it is clearly communicated to the client that coaching is not therapy, consulting or other professional services.
    About Gene
    A lawyer with over twenty five years of experience Gene has been helping businss owners draft, negotiate and resolve business disputes.  A few years ago Gene sought a coach to help him with his law practice and found a real attraction to the coaching profession.  So much so that he began to focus his law practice on the needs of coaches, mentors, healers and others in the personal development community. Gene delivers his services in package style format combining personal time to customize various contract templates that he has developed specifically for Coaching business needs.  One of his most popular packages - the Four Basic Legal Agreements – includes a coaching/client agreement and several templates most coaches find useful as they grow their practices.
