The National Speakers Association (NSA) invited John Sturtevant to present his 90-minute Clear Writing Seminar at a recent association event in Houston. The audience of professional trainers and keynote speakers was eager to hear The Five Big Ideas behind what it takes to be clear and write what you mean.

As speaking professionals, these NSA members continually create and write presentations, speeches, proposals, and marketing material – and all of it must be clear and compelling. They were looking for real, practical ways to expand their thinking, liven up their presentations, and spend less time writing. John Sturtevant delivered on their expectations – and more!

NSA Program Chairman Joe Sommerville said, “You were engaging, humorous, and insightful…I appreciate your professionalism and attention to the needs of our unique audience.”

And the professional speakers and trainers in the audience agreed.

“Finally!” said one member. “Someone who can make improving writing fun to learn.”

“Awesome,” said another attendee. “That was an excellent program!”

“I’m going to put his suggestions to use in my marketing materials immediately,” said Karen McCullough, a well-respected international speaker.
