Chapter Event February – Gerry O’Brion and Lynne Smithpeter

February 23, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The Speaker’s Formula – How to Build and Grow a Profitable Speaking Business

About the Event:

Join us for networking from 12:00pm-1:00pm. The meeting will start promptly at 1:00pm and end at 4:00pm.

In this session, you’ll learn the techniques that Gerry O’Brion used to build a six-figure speaking business in less than two years, and then quadruple it by year five.

His secret weapon?  Lynne Smithpeter, his co-presenter. Lynne and Gerry have created a business development system that has ignited their revenue growth, and every strategy can be implemented in your speaking business today.  Lynne and Gerry will reveal the top 10 techniques they use to attract new clients, expand existing clients, and have clients requesting Gerry to sell products in the back of the room.   This interactive, tag-team session will give you real tools that you can implement to dramatically increase your referrals and be sure participants remember you long after your presentation is over.   The session will include both the important building blocks that every speaker needs as well as strategies for advanced speakers looking to take their business to the next level.

Three tangle ideas or takeaways:

  1. One technique that will dramatically increase your word-of-mouth referrals.
  2. 10 strategies that every speaker can leverage to attract new clients and close more sales.
  3. The one critical thing that every speaker needs (and it’s not a book).

About the Speakers:

Gerry O’Brion is known for taking the complex and making it simple. He distills business strategies to the critical components of what drives success. “The Speaker’s Formula” was created using the insights from some of the most successful speakers out there. Gerry’s speaking, coaching, and Business Blueprint planning system have reached tens of thousands of businesses across the country. Gerry began his career in marketing at Procter & Gamble and then was an executive for Coors Light, Quiznos, and Red Robin. Gerry built his career growing big brands, and now teaches companies of all sizes and industries how to implement the same strategies used by the big guys.





Lynne Smithpeter joined Gerry in the fall of 2014. Together they have implemented the same strategies in growing his speaking business that Gerry teaches in his keynotes. Lynne spent many years in management and corporate training with Nordstron, and later in sales and marketing for several businesses.
