MORNING WORKSHOP (OPEN TO ALL)

Getting Hired by Speakers Bureaus: What They Want, What They Don't Want, and How to Work with Them

8:15 AM - Doors Open

8:45 AM - Welcome

9:00 AM - Program Begins

12:00 PM - Program Ends

Do you want to be booked - and get PAID - by speakers bureaus? Then you need to meet Mike Frank and listen very carefully. Because he's given personal guidance, counsel and advice to over 2,000 speakers, hundreds of meeting planners, and dozens of speakers bureau owners.

Why do they all want Mike's advice? Because as a Past-President of the National Speakers Association, professional speaker, consultant, emcee, and owner of SPEAKERS UNLIMITED, one of the oldest speaker bureaus in North America (since 1971), Mike knows what it takes for YOU to market yourself and be bookable by meeting planners and speakers bureaus today!

In this highly interactive workshop you will learn:

  • What marketing "tools" are most critical and tips on creating them
  • What meeting planners are looking for in website video
  • What speakers bureaus want and DON'T want
  • Understanding what is a “ bureau friendly website" and why it's important
  • Vital "rules of thumb" and a logical formula for determining your speaking fees
  • Important truths about product sales
  • Seasoned thoughts on the ethics of your speaking business

Come prepared with YOUR questions on any aspect of the speaking business because Mike will try to answer all of them!

AFTERNOON WORKSHOP (PROFESSIONAL MEMBERS + CANDIDATE PARTNERS ONLY)

What Marketing Has Worked to Get Hired to Speak?

Note: All afternoon sessions are for Professional Members and Candidate Partners ONLY! If you'd like to be part of these afternoon sessions, consider joining NSA VA today!

12:00 PM - Lunch

12:30 PM - Program Begins

3:30 PM - Program Ends

In the morning workshop we will learn from Mike Frank about getting hired by speakers bureaus. But, we can't rely on any one, single strategy to get hired.

That's why in the afternoon we will have a facilitated session to share with one another what marketing strategies we're using (or we're trying) to get clients.

Plus, everyone will have an opportunity to share what is their area of expertise and who is their ideal client - so we can proactively recommend one another when it totally makes sense!.

The afternoon workshop and lunch (assorted sandwiches, salad, cookies and beverages) is INCLUDED in your registration!

Registrations for this event are non-refundable and non-transferable.
