Online video is not the future; it’s today. With 85% of internet users watching video content consistently, video presents a great way to share your message and increase your impact.
The idea of producing a video, however, can be intimidating.

Do you have a desire to build a network of relationships that will support and grow your business or ministry, but simply have no idea where to start? Networking can sometimes feel overwhelming and even unappealing. The reality is we all network to some extent, whether we call it that or not. The key is how and why we connect.

Amy Carroll and Melanie Chitwood
You’ve got a topic you’re interested in, one you think you want to turn into a written or spoken message. But what do you do next? Narrowing the idea for your speech, chapter, article or devotion will make your idea more unique and appealing to your audience. From over two decades of combined experience speaking, writing and editing, Melanie Chitwood and Amy Carroll will help you to:
As communicators, we live our best messages in the midst of stories. Crazy things happen to us. Interesting conversations take place around us. We walk through hard situations. And we want to share our life experiences with our audiences in an effective and powerful way.
Stories have the ability to break down the big emotional barrier between the person on a stage or behind the screen and the person hearing or reading the message. But they also offer a way to connect a teaching point to a person more effectively than any tool of verbal communication we could use.
In this interactive workshop, Proverbs 31 Speaker and LifeWay Author Nicki Koziarz will help you understand what type of storyteller you are, learn how to tell stories that stick (not slip), and discover how to allow your audience to put themselves into your story in a way that benefits them.
Nicki will show you a variety of ways to incorporate your stories into your messages, how many you should tell during a message, and help you personally think through what stories you should tell the next time you speak.
Chrystal Evans Hurst

The reality is that most speakers and writers are making the most of the time available and attempting to do great work in the most productive way possible. None of us have time to spare or waste.

Over the years, Chrystal has come across quite a few apps, hacks and tools to help her be a more effective writer and speaker.

After attending this session, you will be better prepared to effectively and efficiently prepare for your speaking opportunities and to get your writing done!

Liz Curtis Higgs
Shifting gears from the business of speaking to the ministry of speaking, Liz Curtis Higgs will address everything that happens ON the platform — beginning on the right note, speaking from the heart, telling stories, reading an audience, adjusting your message on the fly, watching for engagement, putting Scripture first, pausing to pray, using humor, being vulnerable and glorifying the Lord above all.
When you get asked to speak at an event, it can take hours to prepare. First, you have to identify the topic or address the one you’ve been assigned. Then you have to study, prepare, practice and hope you are offering the listeners the value they are expecting. Then there are the questions: Should I write out my talk word for word? Should I use a detailed PowerPoint presentation? What if I lose my train of thought? Should I use more stories, include funny jokes, be serious, or talk louder or softer? Do I create a new talk every time I speak? What if I told you, you can cut your prep time down to one afternoon by crafting your unique core message that will work for any audience?
In this workshop, you will learn:
