There’s no one “right” way to build a speaking business. But one thing we can all agree on is that to build a speaking business you need…business! Where do those first speaking engagements come from? Courtney Clark will share with you her strategy for going from “who do I even call and what do I say?” to a fully booked calendar.
At the end of this session, participants will leave with:
· Ideas for where to look for people who might hire you
· Courtney’s step-by-step sales plan, detailing what types of outreach to send and when.
· Script suggestions for calls and emails, including the best single word to start your voice mails
· A strategy for turning your first handful of bookings into spinoff business
Courtney Clark is the luckiest unlucky person in the world. After a series of major struggles beginning in her mid-20s, she has built two
successful businesses and is the author of two books, including her most recent book, The Successful Struggle: Powerful Techniques to Achieve Accelerated Resilience. She works with people who want to adapt faster and achieve more, and has spoken worldwide to organizations like Procter & Gamble, Dell, S&P, Humana, Cisco, and Cardinal Health. Courtney’s resilience work has been called “practical,” “powerful,” and “empowering” by industry leaders, and she’s been featured in Forbes, Psychology Today, USA Today, and The Chicago Tribune. If she wasn’t writing and speaking about resilience, Courtney would have wanted to be a tap dancer. Thankfully for her audiences, she wasn't very good at it.
