Presenter Qualifications

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Presenter with The Barral Institute. We commend your willingness to share your knowledge and experience with other healthcare practitioners, and increase the awareness of Visceral Manipulation, Neural Manipulation and New Manual Articular Approach.

  • Visceral Manipulation
  • Neural Manipulation
  • New Manual Articular Approach
  • One-Day Workshop Presenter
  • Presentation Engagements

As an independent presenter you seek out and/or may be asked to seek out invitations to lecture from local organizations, support groups and schools. We provide topic outlines (see available outlines at top) and audience handout material at no charge. We require a minimum two-week notice of a presentation engagement so that we have sufficient time to gather information and provide maximum support.

Once you schedule a presentation engagement, your first step is to complete the Presentation Engagement Form. We will use this information to coordinate and ship you the appropriate audience handout material. Depending on the type of presentation engagement, we may also send flyers that offer attending healthcare professionals a discount on a Barral Institute entry-level workshop. We will also take the information from this form and enter your presentation engagement in the BI computer database as a permanent record of your promotional work.

If you need help developing your presentation, contact us at info@barralinstitute.com

We've also customized Speaker's Packets for each of our core modalities. These packets include information such as Frequently Asked Questions, BI history, and articles. Click here to download information from these packets.

Congratulations on your upcoming speaking opportunity! For your convenience we've created speaker's packets full of helpful information for your presentation. They include basic information on our core modalities CranioSacral Therapy, Lymph Drainage Therapy and Healing From the Core.

Each customizable packet contains a Frequently Asked Questions sheet, a history of The Barral Institute, a link to purchase Barral "Discover" brochures and one feature article about the modality. Additional topic-specific articles can be located with the assistance of the BI Article Bibliography. Articles listed in the Bibliography cannot be linked to directly, so you will need to contact the publication source for copies.

If you would like to receive handouts via mail, we need a minimum of 10 days advance notice to prepare your packets and a $25 speaker's packet fee will be charged.

Once you become a speaker you can download support materials directly from this site by selecting one of the items from our drop down menu on the left under Speakers. Here you'll find UII forms, customizable flyers, sample press releases and confirmation letters.

If you experience difficulty downloading or customizing the flyers, contact the Business Development Department at 1-561-622-4334 | 1-866-522-7725 or speakers@upledger.com.

Presenters Manual & Marketing Kit

Created for your convenience, this manual is full of ideas and tools that can help you set up, market and carry out a successful speaking engagement. Within it you will find a list of presenter options available to you based on your education and experience as a UII alumnus.

We've also included information on how to organize and promote your workshop, as well as what type of support you can receive from UII when presenting. Our goal is to help you create successful presentations that raise awareness about the work you're doing, drive business to your practice and allow you to earn additional income as a progressive-thought leader in your community.

The manual also contains a number of forms, templates for press releases and confirmation letter samples to help you work with us and create a professional presentation. Customizable flyers and outlines are also available from the dropdown menu to the left under Speakers, but are not included in this manual. Course outlines are password protected and passwords can be obtained by contacting the Business Development Department at 1-561-622-4334 | 1-866-522-7725 or speakers@upledger.com.


Forms

For your convenience, we've included three forms that will be useful to you as a UII presenter.

The Class Addition & Speaking Engagement Forms can be used for two purposes: 1) If you are hosting an Upledger ShareCare, CSTO, or CSTI, please complete the entire first page of this form. 2) If you are presenting a one to six hour speaking engagement in your community (approved presentation lengths depend upon the topic presented), please fill out the Presenter Information at the top of page one only, then complete all of page two.

The Registration Form is provided to help you capture the necessary information when taking registrations for your UII workshop.

The W-9 Form is a government form necessary for any presenter receiving funds from UII. If you are not expecting a check from us, there is no need for you to print and submit this form.

Flyers

Here are flyers that you're able to customize with your name and the date, time, location and details of your workshop. These flyers are created in Microsoft Word and should be easy to update with your information.

We recommend that you use these flyers to promote your event and increase registrations by displaying them at local schools, hospitals, clinics, health food stores and health fairs. They can also be inserted in direct mail pieces or area healthcare newsletters.


Press Releases

Press Releases can be a great way to get the word out about an upcoming event in your community. Customize these press releases and send them to your local newspapers, healthcare magazines and community newsletters (check with them first to confirm printing deadlines).

You should also register your event with community events calendars offered in your area.


Confirmation Letters

Use confirmation letters to let your registrants know that their space has been reserved in your upcoming workshop. We highly recommend sending these forms out as soon as you receive registrations. If a registrant has an outstanding balance for your class, you can include this information in the letter, or send them a bill along with the confirmation letter.

For your convenience, UII is also able to take registrations for your upcoming workshop. We have the ability to accept all major credit cards and handle all confirmation letters and billing details for you if you choose this option. There is a 12.5% handling fee on registrations taken by UI. You will be paid all registration fees due you (less handling fee) after UII has received your final class roster.

Please Note: UII must have your W-9 form on file to be paid your registration fees.

These password protected outlines help you create a strong, professional and successful presentation.
