Thank you for agreeing to share your time, knowledge and value with the Lady Boss Round Table community! I’m so excited to team up with you to pull off something that’s going to be absolutely incredible. Lady Boss Round Table Summit is a 4-hour strategy session specifically designed for purpose-driven entrepreneurs who run multiple businesses and brands.

HOW IT WORKS
Our round table discussions are exciting opportunities for attendees to learn from peers — and moderation plays a significant role in their success. If done correctly, guests are more likely to ease into conversations, stay engaged and share ideas, setting the stage for post-event networking. The goal of a moderator is to deliver a relaxed but professional atmosphere, where experts and enthusiasts alike can make the most of their experience.
During this 1- hour rotating round table discussion, 5-8 women entrepreneurs will move from table to table discussing the designated topic led by a moderator. During the round table discussions, you will introduce yourself and your business, introduce the topic and then ask a thought-provoking question to the group related to your topic. Your goal is to direct the group discussion and create an engaging atmosphere for everyone to participate, while also sharing your experiences and tips.
- Introduce yourself: Share your experiences in relation to the topic. Is this something that you are passionate about? Give a brief description of the research that you have done, if any. Tell the audience how you came to join the event and what you hope to achieve by attending.
- Introduce the topic: Briefly introduce the topic. Give your audience some quick context as to why it is relevant and how they will benefit from discussing it. Introducing the topic gives guests time to think about what questions they can and should ask once the floor is open.
- Lead with a question: One of the best features of an LBRT event is a unique set of engagement questions guests received prior to the discussion. Break the ice with a thought-provoking question. They help lead into the roundtable itself, directing the group discussion and creating an engaging atmosphere for everyone to participate.
- Engagement is key to participation – Make it personal: Experienced LBRT moderators suggest two things: break the ice with a thought-provoking question, or prepare a list of anecdotal pieces that are easily relatable to the discussion.
- Get everyone to participate: As the moderator, you should be doing the least amount of talking. Give your guests as many chances as possible to speak. Conduct research beforehand on who will be participating to identify how they can connect to the topic and draw unique insights.
- Wrap up the roundtable discussion: Interject gracefully when you find an opportunity to conclude the discussion. There are many ways to do this, and here are some questions you can pose to get final remarks from the group: What is your main takeaway from this discussion? What will you do differently? What is the number one tip you would like to share to help others? Finally, thank the guests for attending and give them something to look forward to. After every LBRT event, guests are tagged on social media (with permission, of course). The best photos are uploaded and they are highly encouraged to share any and all materials.
MODERATOR TO-DO LIST

Join our Facebook Group to further engage with attendees pre and post event. This is a great way to gain more leads! Also, follow us on Instagram and be sure to comment on the event posts letting everyone know how excited you are to share tips to help them with their business.
The joint promotion that happens when we all come together for a single cause of that is a huge benefit to everyone involved.
Leading up to the summit, we’ll have four weeks of promotion. You’ll be provided with email swipe copy, social media swipe copy, and social media graphics to make it all easy! As a moderator, I ask that you promote however you’re able. I’ve created a suggested posting/sending schedule for you to make promotion easy to outsource to a VA.
You’ll find the swipe copy and graphics in the Resource Vault. When you share, be sure to let your audience know that they have to select your name during registration for the question “How did you hear about this event?” so you can get in on the 15% commission. They will need to select your name DURING registration. I will not be able to go in and update their referral name once they’ve registered. There will be no exceptions to this.
The more times you mention it to your audience, the better. It will mean more eyes on the event and more exposure and commission for you!

While summits are great for overall visibility and making new connections, a little extra income never hurts either, right?

You will receive 15% commission of every attendee you bring in. You will receive a final report and payment by March 18, 2023.

I am also happy to collaborate to help you promote. For example, I can take over your Instagram stories, come on your podcast, write a guest newsletter, or do a live in your Facebook group to help you get some extra conversions!
Just remember to let your audience know that they have to select your name during registration for the question “How did you hear about this event?” They will need to select your name DURING registration. I will not be able to go in and update their referral name once they’ve registered. There will be no exceptions to this.
As with all affiliate promotions, be sure to disclose that you’re an affiliate when sharing with your audience.
