Are you waiting for new clients to come to you? Why not go to them? Speaking is one of the best ways to gain expert status, name recognition and new clients. Often one talk will lead to an opportunity to do another talk!

This workshop covers the ABC’s of building your client base through speaking engagements whether to a small local group or as a keynote speaker at a national conference. The workshop will include:

• How to book talks
• How to build your audience
• How to prepare your talk
• How to seed the talk so that your closing remarks lead to getting clients.
• How to follow up and close the deal.

Join me and let’s get moving on building your business through speaking. Don’t forget the following week there will be a Q & A session that will be an opportunity for you to dive deeper into the material and how to implement all you have learned in your individual situation.
