3rd February 2022: 6 Giant Strides to improving your Speaker Business – Step 1

We are staying online for the first half of 2022 at least and we are bringing you a brand new programme of Speaking Events to help us all improve our Speaking Businesses.

Whether you are a beginner, need a revamp or are a very experienced speaker you will get lots of content out of the programme we will be providing.

Our first meeting on 3rd February is about your Value Proposition.

The biggest factor in whether you’re booked or your audience listens is whether they feel they’re getting excellent value, but how do you define it or explain it?

This session looks at value from two viewpoints.

1. Do you know WHY you speak? What is the purpose of your speaking business? This session will delve into WHY you speak about your chosen topic and together we will focus on the ten fundamental WHY questions that will ensure your speaking business communicates value, relevance and purpose to your client and audience.

By attending our first interactive workshop you will uncover, discover and rediscover the WHY of your professional speaking business, the fundamental reasons WHY a client would book you as a Professional Speaker and WHY your topic is relevant to your audience now.

2. Next we look at how to explain and show that value to clients and audiences.

Value comes in many forms for a client or audience: enjoyment, inspiration and improvement in performance three months after the event. It’s important to ensure the value you add gives both them and your speaking business the maximum impact. In the second workshop we’ll look at:

1. Demonstrating value to potential clients.
2. How to develop the objectives that will make your session hit the target for both the audience and you.
3. Balancing the needs of the client and the audience.

We have 2 masterclasses with Amy Rowlinson and Bob Ferguson to help us get 2022 kick started.
