Welcome to the website for the Hartford Springfield Speakers Network, a network of “shakers and movers” who are speakers, marketers, authors, small business owners, coaches, and entrepreneurs. We meet on the first Saturday of each month (except for July and January, which fall on the 2nd Saturday) at the Enfield/Longmeadow Holiday Inn in Enfield, CT. The cost to attend is $30 per person, per meeting, but everyone can attend the first meeting for FREE. You can also join our membership and only pay $19.50 per month and attend all meetings at no extra charge, and have access to past meeting videos.
Below you will learn details about this month’s key speaker. Each of our meetings features a 45-minute key presenter, networking opportunities and a mastermind group, plus much more. Networking begins at 8:30 AM and the meeting kicks off at 9:15 AM. The meeting then adjourns at noon. More details can be found on our FAQ (frequently asked questions) page.

ABOUT THE OCTOBER MEETING’S KEY SPEAKER
Diane Goodman, President and Founder
Goodman Speakers Bureau
Speakers bureaus act as a resource for people who plan meetings, conferences and special events. Bureaus have content experts on staff to bring speaker expertise to the attention of event planners and decision makers. Speakers bureaus are also very selective when it comes to who they work with. In this session, you will learn what speakers bureaus look for in the speakers the
y work with. Come ready to ask question that will help you grow your speaking business. Meeting planners are also encouraged to attend to meet Diane Goodman and learn more about her 30-year-old service to meetings planners across the world.
