This training is for employees, managers and leaders from small businesses to major corporations, it will help teach members HOW to build a culture of inclusion and leverage it to improve performance and output.

Busy lady, last week Risha finished off her trip to DC with an interview with Bruce Johnson WUSA 9, on his program Off Script. They start the discussion based on the FBI's release of data saying hate crimes spiked 17 percent in 2017, and then moved into some ideas and what we as individuals can do help change the conversation.

Too often we're listening waiting for that moment to "jump in" instead of listening to understand. We need to look for commonalities, not differences says Risha Grant.

The NEW diversity and inclusion training from @risha.grant will take your clients well beyond the keynote!

Diversity and Inclusion is an uncomfortable topic. In the That’s BS! Video Series, Risha Grant will guide your audience to a place where they’re comfortable discussing the uncomfortable. In this series Risha Grant facilitates honest, authentic conversations about unconscious bias, inclusive cultures and micro-aggressions (the things that keep us irritated and frustrated with each other).

You never know what may have happened onsite, so before you fly to the event, make sure you have these essentials!!

The Pre-Event Packing List:

Presentation on separate USB drive (just in case)

Adapters, chargers, cables, and plugs for all your equipment, in any country

Slide advancer: you might not be able to trust the one onsite

Microphone: if you have a preference, just bring your own

A copy of your intro, printed and inside your bag, AT ALL TIMES, just in case

The Golden Rule (in our opinion) is this one line:

**There is no DRAMA onsite, ever.**

It's never about you, it's always about them, especially the days of the event.

Things you should know long before the day of the event:

How are you getting from the airport to the venue? Cab, limo, airport shuttle?

What team member is tracking the flight?

What is the weather? Will you need an umbrella? Sweaters? Polar bear suit?

Is the venue the same as the hotel?

When is the AV check time and where? A quick brief on rehearsal and show times.

Who’s greeting you and where?

No last-minute changes: no last minute special requests ie: extra hotel room, extra night, extra guests. Your meeting planner is at the height of months of work leading up to this day, do not add to their workload or stress level.

Road Rules for Speakers Day 2...

So you've won the gig, booked the pre-event call, and now it's time to book flights etc.

Always book flights with one back-up in each leg, in case of missed connections there are viable options for still getting to the event on time.

Try and book direct with the airlines, Expedia & Kayak have numerous issues when it comes to customer service mid-way through, you’re their customer not the airlines so if you run into trouble the airline can’t help you.

Put the flights on your calendar so your manager or assistant can see them and email them the confirmation to supply to the client.

Make sure there’s an early arrival and late check out in place at the hotel.

Setting yourself up for success the moment a client is considering you is one of the best laid plans a speaker can have.

Some things you can offer:

PRE-DECISION (Pre-Booking) CALLS (aka “Win the Deal” calls) - this is a wonderful way to assure the fit is right, plus a great way to offer suggestions based on your expertise.

Won the contract? Awesome! Now schedule the PRE-EVENT CALL: ask for a content call 2-3 weeks before the event, this is where you get to really dive in and fine tune your presentation based on what your client needs!

These are just 2 of the many tips and tools a speaker can offer and use to help ensure they're top of mind in the selection process, plus it begins to align them as a valuable resource to the client!
