Making Money Beyond the Keynote: Strategies to Grow Your Speaking Business as a Coach, Consultant, and Trainer with Anton Gunn

May 9, 2025 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm


May 2025 Chapter Meeting | No cost to members | First time guests can attend at no cost by using code: MAYMEETING2025

Your future financial success as a speaker is only as strong as your ability to execute a sound business strategy. The impact of COVID19 and the economic downturn has disrupted the meeting and event industry, making “the keynote speech” an insufficient approach to growing a sustainable business. In the middle of these changing times, some speakers decided to retire from the speaking industry. At the same time, other speakers have figured out how to use these changing times to build profitable coaching, consulting, and training businesses well beyond their keynote speech. In this session, we will explore three revenue streams that can take your business from the bottom to the top without leaving your house.

Attendees Will Learn:
– Why this is the perfect time to expand your business beyond the keynote
– The differences between coaching, consulting, and training
– How to inventory your expertise for coaching, consulting, and training opportunities
– Strategies to get your first coaching, consultant, or training client
– How to think about pricing/fees for these services differently than a keynote
