Frank Furness embarked on a full time speaking career in 1997. Since that time he has spoken in 53 Countries around the world and continues to secure international speaking assignments. Most of the engagements are self generated and Frank has become a master of networking and identifying opportunities. He runs his speaking career as a professional business.
He is a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), the Past President of the Professional Speakers Association of UK and in 2011 was inducted to the Speakers Hall of Fame.
When Frank started his speaking career, he spent a lot of wasted time floundering around and trying to find out how to market himself.
Over the years he has developed professional relationships with some of the best marketers and speakers in the world and learnt from them.
Two hours of personal coaching time with Dottie Walters cost Frank $500 and the advice he received resulted in his first audio course order for £35,000.
Over the last fifteen years he has established clients that are amongst the largest Blue Chip Companies in the world. His clients also include the British Olympic & Paralympic Team and Sport England.
Sponsorship and arranging his own speaking tours has contributed to his success and international exposure.
Frank has now run numerous successful bootcamps on every continent and the delegates are raving.
With the ideas learned on the bootcamp, one delegate secured 11 speaking assignments in the week following. The idea of a BOOTCAMP originates in America where Frank has attended them and experienced the positive results.
A BOOTCAMP is a weekend of intensive learning and action planning. The first day of BOOTCAMP will concentrate on the speaking and platform skills, while the second day concentrates on marketing, products and running a business.
Franks revolutionary approach to using technology and social media to promote himself has resulted in him dominating the first page of Google for the search term 'sales technology speaker'. His 500 videos on his YouTube Sales Tips channel has resulted in many booking, sales and done wonders to build his brand.
Frank will be shariing these marketing strategies on day two of the bootcamp
