Many of you don’t know this but I’m a Rockhound.

YES, I collect precious stones just for the thrill of it which you can see from my coffee table display in the pic on the right. But this time I’m looking for some different types of gemstones than I typically collect at rock quarries and mines on my off road travels. I’m traveling around the world virtually today popping into small towns, cities and communities to dig up a handful of Virtual Assistant gemstones who’d love to share their business knowledge with other VAs in my VAVS12 collection.

That’s right! Once again I am looking for Virtual Assistants to speak at Season 12 of our VAvirtuosos Seminars (VAVS12) coming to you November 16-20th, 2015.

I am inviting all ROCKSTAR Virtual Assistants who’d like to bestow their business experiences/skills/niches to help other VAs achieve success quickly via the experience of their peers. Virtual Assistants from around the world love to learn from their business colleagues and this is always a sell-out event!



(Please make sure your speaker submission processes (check your email for immediate receipt acknowledge of your application).

Don’t be scared, it’s FUN and everyone attends not to hear a perfected speech but to hear what you know about being a Virtual Assistant that they don’t. People attend to learn!

We had over 100 speaker applications last season so please get your application in quick to get on the front lines to speak with us. We will start choosing and accepting speakers right away with final submission due date August 30th.


VAVS is the online conference every Virtual Assistant (VA) can’t wait to attend and learn new business strategies via their business colleagues >> Virtual Assistants that have been there and are doing it successfully!

VAVS is hosted by Tawnya Sutherland, founder of the largest social network for Virtual Assistants online since 2003, This VAVS series at only $37 for a ticket to listen to 20 speakers LIVE sells out each and every time (we hold it twice a year)!

If you are trying to figure out what topic to speak about think to yourself, what do I have to share to my fellow VAs? What have I went through and figured out in my business that may help another VA?

And its not just the veteran VAs who know the ins/outs of being a Virtual Assistant we are looking for every sharing VA. We also want brand new VAs speaking at our event because we know even the newbies have something to share like:

  • How to Get Your First Client
  • Juggling Your Schedule Working From Home as a Mother
  • Educating Clients on How to Utilize the Services of a VA
  • The Top 5 Software Programs You Need to Learn as a VA
  • How to Turn Your Facebook from Personal to Business Success
  • Topic ideas are only limited to your imagination!!!

If you’ve got something to tell/teach your business VA colleagues to help with their business success, why not step up to the podium and share with us?

STILL A BIT SHY? BOOK a 15 minute phone call consultation with me (Tawnya) to discuss and talk about your speaker ideas. I’ll light a fire of confidence into you to help you share your knowledge with us!

If you’ve ever been thinking about speaking as a side line income this is a great way to test the waters behind a computer screen via a webinar scenario. Or maybe you just want to share your knowledge of your VA business success with other VAs to make you feel all gooey good inside.

It always feels wonderful to give, so GIVE it a TRY!


For whatever your reason, we hope you take this opportunity to strut your stuff and speak to your business colleagues on a subject we all love, virtual assistance.
