February Speaker


Deanna Pepe presented for the WNEA in February on the subject of Public Speaking.  We were all impressed with the powerful performance she gave while also teaching us how to stand up and tell the world about our business.

“According to most studies, people’s number once fear is public speaking.  Death is number two.  Can that be right?  Does that mean, as Jerry Seinfeld once said that if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy?

Public Speaking is a conversation.  It’s all about the audience.

Some tips for Public Speaking are:

1.  Ask a question.

2.  Make a pro or con comment.

3.  Use quotes, stories (yours) and anecdotes (someone else’s).

4.  Scan the audience – left to right, to calm down.

5.  Never be word perfect.  You are not reading a script, you are being the best you will be.

6.  Rehearse!  Your reputation is at stake, so rehearse and you will leave a good impression.

Always end with a call to action, it’s why you are there right? ”

Deanna is a member of the organization Toastmasters.  This group is always open to new guests and members to come and learn how to give the best presentation you can.

Havasu Toastmasters meet every Tuesday, at 6:30pm at :

January Speaker


Our speaker in January was Donna Nelson of Donna Nelson coaching.  Donna went over the things we do that prevent us from achieving our goals.

She teaches the steps of achieving goals through empowerment.

“The ability to Self Empower is a life skill that is at the core of your success, happiness, and fulfillment.  And it is a skill you already have!  The secret is to learn how to tap into your empowerment, and how to increase your empowerment anytime and anywhere you need it.  When you understand this you discover a greatly increased inner confidence to take on anything!

There are 5 core ingredients to your Empowerment.  If you look at being empowered like ‘being in the driver’s seat’ of your life- you can remember them easily…D.R.I.V.E. your life to success!


D – Delete what is dis-empowering

R – Rule your mind

I – Be Inspired

V – The Vehicle: Goals & Structure

E – Evolve forever

Her presentation went over these tools in detail and was a benefit to all, thank you Donna for sharing!
