Networking and speaking
Lesley would love to meet up with you for
- lunch or a
- chat with you and a group of your friends,
who would like to meet an Aussie Nana who is a little out of the ordinary.
Do you want a guest speaker for an event?
If you want a guest speaker for your networking group, she is very good – whether it is for fifteen minutes or forty! She is an excellent public speaker on topics like
- Networking For Business,
- The Six Words Of Excellence For Success In Small Business
- Identifying Your Ideal Client.
- Is Social Media is right for your business?
She will be happy to present one of these four topics for your group and show how her forty years of business success has prepared her to launch her new career at Stories My Nana Tells.
Reading to groups of children
If you would like Lesley to read two or three of her stories to a group of children, who would like to hear some of her writing, she would love to do that. Reading to children in Libraries and at parties is a favourite of hers.
How did it all come about – this Nana’s Walkabout?
How did it all come about – this Nana’s Walkabout? Well, the original idea was for Lesley to go to Linda Hollander’s Women’s Small Business Expo in LA on April 27, then meet her daughter in law, Pauline, in New York, go on to spend a week in Toronto and then come home via Paris (have never been there yet), Bangkok (have never been there yet) and Hong Kong (ditto).
Once her friends on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn found she was coming to the US and Canada – there were lots of invitations to come and meet them in person. Like Topsy, it just grew from there – to where we are today: an eleven city tour across the US and Canada and back again. The final week, she will be taking the train trip across the Rockies up to Jasper and return. Something she has always wanted to do – to see the Rockies. Meeting the sister of her other daughter in law, Lisa, in Vancouver will be icing on the cake!
Social Media is just awesome for networking and making friends.
We think that Social Media is awesome and Lesley is so looking forward to blogging, tweeting and Facebooking her way across the States. We hope that she gets to meet you!
