COVID forced Bev Hepting to move her speaking coach career online. In this webinar, she will discuss the difference in techniques between speaking to a live audience, speaking from a stage with an audience in the room, and giving online speeches.

 

You'll learn:

·    How to have meaningful conversations with your online audience.

·    How to engage people online realizing they have many distractions around them.

 

About Bev:

Bev Hepting is an award-winning, international TEDx speaker and coach who works with business owners, transforming their businesses by clarifying their messages. This allows them to speak in public with confidence and clarity. She is an experienced speaker who engages her audiences and ensures they get great value, new learnings, and have a lot of fun with her talks.

 

After 20 years of working in the nonprofit world, empowering disadvantaged people to have a voice, she realized she wanted to run her own business. She wanted to use all her skills to empower women to be the best they could be. This took her to Toastmasters, where she won awards and competitions; and on to self-employment, helping women in business find their voice and speak in public with confidence and clarity.

Dear Chutze Chou,

 

Welcome back to your work week. Did you remember to adjust your clocks? If you are reading this right when it appears in your in-box, it's about 8:30 am EDT. If you think it's 7:30 am, adjust now! (With today's technology so many of our tools automatically update but some of us still wake to the buzz of a simple, non-connected device.)

 

In just a few minutes we're going to be signing in to our weekly startup/entrepreneurial conversation. We'll be talking with Rochelle Nemrow, a serial entrepreneur and startup advisor. In February 2020 Rochelle sold her second company, MIN alumni FamilyID, and spent 6 months on an effective transition. Now she works with various startups as they scale. Join us as we talk about building company culture and more.

 

Last week we talked with Stephen Blumberg, founder and COO at Kyrus. You can read more about that conversation here or listen to the recording here.

 

We moved our conversation with entrepreneur and startup advisor/supporter Antonio Dixon, director at SolarFi to next week (March 22).

 

You can join us every Monday morning at 9:00 am on Space*! Click here to download the Space app on your mobile device. Look for the Mass Innovation Nights space and join us here.

 

We also have some awesome entrepreneurial articles on Lioness, our alumni news and the list of great events we share every week.

Dear Innovator,

Last week’s Boston Startups in Space conversation (9:00 am Monday mornings - join us!) covered some of our “favorite” startup topics:
  • Pitch decks
  • Virtual events
  • Networking during a pandemic
  • Manufacturing partners

And, my personal favorites, referrals and recommendations. Here are some of mine:

  • Have I told you recently about Forge? Forge is there to help startups with physical products navigate the journey from physical prototype to commercialization and impact at scale.
  • Then there’s The Capital NetworkThe Capital Network provides practical, hands-on education and personalized mentoring from investors and experts. They are there to help demystify the funding process for early-stage entrepreneurs.
  • Scott Kirsner's (Innovation Leader and Boston Globe) new book, Innovation Economy: True Stories of Start-Ups, Flame-Outs, and Inventing the Future in New England, is out today. Learn what makes the New England ecosystem tick — from robotics to machine learning to synthetic biology to sneakers. 

Check out our virtual events calendar, new partnership, and new opportunities below.
