Elevate: Harnessing Your Speaking Business
This year we are deep-diving into four different master-mind workshop topics to open up the
possibilities to grow your speaking business. You can apply to one or all of them. Space is limited as we
can only accommodate nine people in each program, so get your application in soon. The program will
not be available on video.
The purpose of this mastermind is to help its members build their speaking businesses to have global relevance. That may mean lots of international travel, when and where that’s possible, but more broadly it means having a message that is relevant worldwide and that resonates beyond the U.S., resulting in global clients, global press coverage, and global considerations within our work. Over 8-10 weeks, we’ll discuss some of the challenges in building truly international businesses, and develop plans and actionable strategies for building our presence as professional speakers who work with companies and organizations around the world.
In this Elevate, you will learn:
Speakers and Agenda: What kind of agenda and speakers should you build to have a desirable event. What kind of speakers should you look for? How to craft agenda name titles?
Event Logistics: How should your event look and feel? How to best market the event for as little budget as possible? How to go beyond just a “Zoom” meeting.
Sponsors: Now that you’ve crafted a desirable event what are some ways you can identify and connect with sponsors who might want to be a part of your event. What are some things a sponsor might want?
The college market is a massive, lesser-known, market for professional speakers. Many speakers make well over $500k per year speaking to students about a variety of topics. Knowing what sells, who to sell it to, and how to deliver it are the keys to becoming a successful college speaker.
