SPEAKER: January – Ann Videan speaker, author, marketing guru, songwriter www.videanunlimited.com
Do you have a writing dream, but can’t get past everyday reality? Need a jump-start to move you toward your goal? Ann Videan’s facilitated session can help you. With input from everyone in the room, we’ll ask what you need, and share ideas and support. Expect to walk away with at least one, but probably many, positive action items to help you take the next step with your writing. By listening, planning and taking action, you can find true fulfillment, just as the heroine does in Ann’s new novel Rhythms & Muse.
Ann Videan In addition to consulting for the last 15 years with visionary entrepreneurs about business-tribe development and word-of-mouth marketing, Ann Videan recently achieved her own life dreams of becoming an author and singer/songwriter. She just published her first book Rhythms & Muse with its accompanying CD of five original tunes inspired by the novel’s “dreams come true” theme. You can learn more about Ann at www.videanunlimited.com

CHECK-IN: Please check-in between 5:00 and 6:00 at the table at the door so we can start the meeting promptly at 6:00 as we always do. At the check-in table you will: (1) leave your check made payable to Scottsdale Society of Women Writers, (2) have your name checked off the RSVP list, (3) pick up your name badge – your receipt for the food server to identify you as paid.
AGENDA: The agendas will be on the dinner table as before and the format will remain the same.
ROOM: We will meet in the Cactus Room which is on the fourth floor of Chaparral Suites just off the center elevator, immediately to the left of the 4th Floor Grille. See directions below for this elevator and parking. You will be facing the 4th Floor Grille exiting this elevator. Do not enter the Grille, take an immediate left. We are in the Cactus Room, a banquet room just a few yards away.
DIRECTIONS: Chaparral Suites is located in downtown Scottsdale at Chaparral Road and Scottsdale Road on the north/east corner and just north of Fashion Square Mall – Chaparral Road has a light. Parking is in the rear – there are two large parking lots. Best to enter from the middle elevator for the 4th Floor Grille; yes, we are on the 4th floor.
From the 101 freeway exit Chaparral Road and go west just prior to Scottsdale Road and enter the side drive right or north where it says 4th Floor Grille and come up that elevator – it is in the center of the hotel complex. There is an awning marked 4th Floor Grille. This is the easiest way in – not through the lobby. The parking lots are in the back and side on the north end of the complex.
