Hot Topics of the Week – 20th April 2012
Greetings from Miami, USA! This week I have been in the US attending a conference held by one of our very good friends at RLF, Bob Burg – who co-wrote The Go-Giver books. Many of you will also know Bob from our December 2011 webinar (the recording is inside the forum)
So although i’ve been travelling this week, the forum has stayed busy and there have been many new members from around the world joining us at RLF. I am looking forward to seeing many of the contacts I have made out here in the US joining us too, so keep an eye out for them inside the forum! It all adds to the networking opportunities for you, to have contact with entrepreneurs all over the world.
Check out this week’s hot topics and see you in the forum!

Testimonials from the special LondonIM event held on 10th April in London
This was the first ‘workshop’ type LondonIM event that we have run and it went down very well with more than 30 attendees at a great new venue in London’s Soho area.
Suraj was completely transparent, honest and open about his businesses as well as his business practice. He shared some of his notes from the super affiliate trainings that he has done over the years with everyone so they could also learn about becoming a super affiliate.
Premium members can get the slides from the event in the forum.
1-day Public speaking & presentation secrets event in London
Our good friend Joanna Martin is running a fantastic 1-day seminar in London in May 2012 about public speaking and presentation secrets. If you want to learn how to be a better public speaker then you MUST attend this event.
I have been on the event myself so I can personally vouch for Joanna and her work. I have done all my public speaking training with her and it has resulted in me being invited to speak at conferences all around the world including Australia and Dubai.
