23rd July 2022: Turn your free talks into value-making machines!

We’re back online on Zoom this month at PSA Yorkshire.

Be honest, how many times did you speak for free and…how much “exposure” did you realistically get?

Let’s admit it, every single speaker or trainer did a free talk in their lifetime. Until they heard these words: NEVER SPEAK FOR FREE!

Well, this month at the PSA Yorkshire will burst this myth with the help of our fabulous speaker from AUSTRALIA, Sally Foley-Lewis!

WHY did we book Sally Foley – Lewis to speak at the PSA Yorkshire?
There are many schools of thought about speaking for free, some say don’t ever do it while others will speak for free at the opening of an envelope! Despite which strategy works for you and your business model, you must have a clear strategy.

In this session, Sally will share 9 top secret strategies to get a return on investment when speaking for free. She’ll share her own tried and tested ROI’s to prove you can turn free speech into cold hard cash.

And you will learn how to:
– Discern when to speak for free and when to step away.
– Explore the hidden values of speaking for free.
– Select ROI strategies that you can adopt immediately in your own speaking business.

This month we also have the very famous and nerve-racking competition to any speaker: Speaker Factor!

If you are a friend or a family member of:
Dr Nupi Arora
Krystyna Trybula
Maria Guimaraes
