How to Become a Guest Speaker at Schools, Conferences, and Events

Quite often, schools, universities, organizations, and community groups hold events that need guest speakers. These guest speakers may provide keynote messages, motivational talks, or vital information on a particular subject.

Such events are major opportunities for speakers to present their skills and topics while getting paid. Becoming guests at these affairs enhances the speaker’s reputation and expands buyer prospects. Getting into these events is quite challenging though. To become guests, in corporate conferences and universities requires a great deal of self-promotion and credentials.

When you think about it, it is natural for planners or organizers of these events to invite speakers that are known and reputed for their achievements. Speakers that are perceived to be great at what they do are logically prioritized and some groups will favor celebrities in the field. Not only does it attract more people to the event; it will also ensure favorable results and productivity.

So what exactly needs to be done? How does one become a guest speaker at schools, conferences, and events?

The answer relies on the effectiveness of the speaker’s marketing approach. The key here is to establish a reputation of expertise and professionalism. Also, an understanding of the niche is essential so the speaker can be clear about the promotional tactics to be employed to attract the organizers.

That is the basis for your marketing materials and created products. The products you release in the market should provide an impression of authority and extensive knowledge. The niche will not fail to notice this and the speaker will have an imprint in their minds. Thus, they are called upon when they are needed.

Marketing materials should show a speaker’s specialization. If the speaker intends to break into the college market, a speaker should state and emphasize in brochures that his or her focus is on youth motivation and school leadership. Perception is reality. It is important that speakers should be perceived appropriately in the niche.

Personal branding is one way to create better recall and establish a reputation. Once the market labels your professional services, you will begin to get clients easily in specific niches. This is why speakers should carefully plan their branding and labeling.

It may take some time to get to the point where you become a primary commodity as a speaker. Big events require only the best speakers and through experience and strategical marketing approach, you will eventually reach that favorable position. Once you reach that point, you can become a guest speaker at any event.

There are plenty of ways to become a guest speaker at schools, conferences, and events. However, persistence and smart work is imperative to get there. Nothing will happen to people who just wait for something to occur. To get ahead as a speaker, you must get out there and network. Recognize the needs of your market and expand your database of prospective clients.…

The Facts of Animal Testing

Alternatives to Animal Testing

As per Animal Welfare Act, the research scientists involved in animal testing are required to consider the alternative to testing on animals before beginning a research project. They must search the available literature for any alternatives, and submit their findings and search history to their concerned department.

 

Many people argue that as animals are less intellectually advanced (which is false statement to begin with anyway), and hence can be used to find cures for HIV, cancer or other life-threatening diseases. However, it is inhumane to take the animals out of their natural habitat, and use them for any kind of research. In US alone, more than 70m animals are blinded, maimed, hurt, killed, scalded, genetically manipulated or force-fed chemicals in the name of household products, science, educational institutes and government agencies. The animal testing is not required by the law, but is done by the companies to protect themselves from consumer lawsuits.

 

Testing on animals costs billions of dollars annually. To measure the severe burn on live tissue, and animal is burned alive till the flesh is charred and can be easily removed in the large pieces, while the animal is still alive. Animal’s eyelids are sewn shut, and the protein levels are measured to demonstrate that there is no difference in the levels of protein in the eyes of sight deprived. Studies on head trauma include strapping down the head of the animal, and giving high impact blows to it, resulting in severe brain damage.

 

Animals and humans are different, and many drugs that have been based on the animal testing had to be taken off the market due to the side-effects, that were not shown during animal studies, but proved fatal for human. There are many drugs that have passed the animal testing, but end up harming or killing the humans. Rats do not have gall bladder, dogs have different circulation system as they walk on all fours, and cats do not have enzymes that can metabolize ibuprofen.

 

More than half of the animal tests conducted by the cosmetic companies, and most of these studies are flawed, resulting in incorrect scientific investigations that waste money, resources and time.  More than 25 billion animals are unnecessarily killed in the labs each year. In one study, the baby monkeys were taken away from mothers, and were abused. The conclusions were drawn that neglect and abuse leads to social maladjustment and psychological damage. Such animal testing does not justify the suffering of millions of animals, and wasting billions of dollars. It is a cruel act of violence forced upon those that cannot speak up or protect themselves from the slavery that some humans seem to believe is still okay in our modern world.

 

There is however a possibility of using the more reliable and less expensive alternatives to animal testing. For Draize eye test, sophisticated computer models or corneas from eye banks can be used instead of using the live rabbits. Other more suitable …

Human Growth Hormone – 3 Words That Will Allow You to Grow a Thicker, Longer Penis

Every single day I’m asked by at least one person about the legitimacy of being able to increase the size of your penis. I work in science, I always have and always will, so whenever someone asks me about whether these pills or penis enlarging creams work, I ask them to look at the science behind it. The penis is not a muscle, it’s not something that can be grown alone by changing your diet, by healthy living or by taking a magic pill or cream. Yes, these changes may improve your sexual health, they’ll give you better erections than you’ll ever know, but they won’t allow your penis to grow.

Ever Heard of Human Growth Hormone Before?

The only thing can alter your penis size is direct stimulation to the penis and a cocktail of hormones and biochemicals. One of the most important of these being the hormone that allowed you to grow in the first place – Human Growth Hormone (HGH).

Anabolic Explosion Created By Human Growth Hormone

HGH is a powerful hormone that is effectively one of the major components in allowing our growth as humans. It was made famous in the media a few years ago when it was revealed that the current world soccer player of the year, Lionel Messi, suffers from a deficiency in Human Growth Hormone and was given a daily shot of HGH to help him grow. Clearly the hormone helped boost a fantastic career for the soccer player who now earns the equivalent of $400,000 a week. Whist this media attention slowly died down, behind the scenes of the penis enlargement industry, scientists were marvelling at the benefits the human penis can achieve through the use of Human Growth Hormone.

Human Growth Hormone and Penis Growth

During puberty the level of biochemicals and hormones in young males are off the scale in comparison with fully developed males. HGH is one of the hormones that is sky high during puberty and essentially allows the penis to grow by itself. Now scientists have been trying to develop a system that can replicate the effects of puberty but on a compressed time scale. Basically they wanted to develop a system that allows substantial penis growth but in a much shorter time frame than that of puberty. The penis still needs to be stimulated through a series of well developed penis exercises. But it is the HGH that allows the real growth to occur. As its part of a complex system, Human Growth Hormone can’t simply be taken alone and then expected to produce results. These systems are now finished and starting to hit the markets.…
