Beth Barany to Present at Keynote Mastery LIVE!

Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — Patrick Schwerdtfeger announced today that Beth Barany will be one of the eight speakers participating in the much-anticipated Keynote Mastery LIVE event that will take place on June 13, 2012, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Oakland Scottish Rite near Lake Merritt. Over 400 attendees are expected to attend, mostly self-employed professionals and small business owners.

Keynote Mastery LIVE will feature eight aspiring speakers, each speaking for just eight minutes, all while camera crews scurry about to capture the whole thing on video. The speakers will be delivering their very best content, hoping to yield compelling videos they can use in their marketing efforts. Join over 400 attendees for this one-of-a-kind event and get a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse to the fascinating world of professional keynote speaking.

Beth Barany will be presenting “Creativity Pays – No More Starting Artists or Authors!” Many authors think that art and business have nothing to do with each other. But actually we creative writers—yes, you too novelists!—are well suited to apply our creative skills to the art of building a successful business. If you just uncover how sales and marketing are all about sharing your stories with those who want them, then you'll create the successful and sustainable career you desire.
