Jan. 16th: Bob just shared some ideas on being a better speaker on Edmonton's Breakfast TV.

A note from Bob 'Idea Man' Hooey

Interesting how a simple project like this grows legs!

I created the boot camp last year (2102) to take advantage of a meeting room package I had purchased at an MPI auction. I asked my friend and fellow Accredited Speaker, Sheryl Roush, DTM, A/S if she would come in a day early to help me conduct it. She was coming in to speak at our CAPS Edmonton Chapter and graciously said yes. We had such a great time with the 30 plus people who came to learn and spend the day with us. I engaged 3 of our local speakers to come and be a part of our faculty for the day. It was a hit.

We were going to Australia last April (2012). I touched base with the District Governor of the newly formed District 17 in Perth, Western Australia. Long story, short, he agreed to have me do an afternoon version of my Boot Camp where in excess of 70 plus eager Toastmasters came to learn and to grow. What a responsive audience. He was thrilled, and so was I!

This year (2013) I again had purchased a meeting room package at an MPI auction and decided to do another one here in Edmonton. I engaged 3 amazing speakers to help me, including my wife (web diva) who did a program on making Powerpoint Powerful. This year with a twist. Part of the proceeds will be set aside to help me self-fund an idea I have in support of the CAPS Foundation when we host the Global Speakers Summit in Vancouver Dec. 8-10, 2013.

I decided to add Boot Camps where I could in locations where I was traveling to speak this year. The Grande Prairieand Halifax Boot Camps were added to the schedule. We are doing a 2nd special one in Edmonton in part to support KIVA, a micro-financing project my friend Dianna Bowes supports. My hope is they will be well attended and allow me to create the project I have in mind for launch in Vancouver. We will be doing a second one in Edmonton on June 1st in support of Kiva, a micro-lending project.

Here in Edmonton we are looking at creating a Speaking for Success community and exploring ideas such as having working lunches where we can come to present and get coaching or lunch and learns where we can give our TedX styled speakers a full hour to explore and expand on their topics.

We will be creating an Alumni ONLY resource section in addition to our public resources page on this website. This will allow us to continue to expand on what we are doing and to continue helping our Alumni grow and hone their skills.

We'll be creating a gallery page to share some of the pictures of our amazing students and boot campers.

So, I would suggest you bookmark this page and come back from time to time. We'll keep adding value for you!

Becoming a more powerful speaker is within your grasp. Whether you use the services of a professional coach, join Toastmasters, CAPS, or NSA you can confidently move ahead and successfully hone your skills to the next level.
