MAKE IT HAPPEN Booking Professional Speakers

Public speakers and professional speakers are asking me: How do corporate and non profit event planners book keynote speakers and professional speakers for their events that require public speakers like motivational speakers and inspirational speakers?

My question back to them is two fold: First as the founder and president of American Speakers Bureau and second as a speaker who is represented by other bureaus.

Their are at least ten professional competencies I have identified over the last 20 plus years of working in the profession of professional speakers, motivations speakers and public speaking.

Professional meeting and event planners, have collectively agreed that a high degree of professionalism, very good deliver, (unique and entertaining) and being relevant for the time and audience, will usually achieve the objectives set forth by the group. However meeting or exceeding the expectations of the group for pubic speakers and professional speakers, seems to be as difficult finding the perfect apple pie recipe just like grandma's!

Here is a link to our American Speakers Bureau web site to guide you in your search for professional speakers, keynote speakers, and motivational speakers.
