Appearances & Speaking Opportunities

Appearances & Speaking Opportunities

As a fellow event planner, I understand the care and thought you put into choosing a speaker, featured guest or workshop presenter for your event. After reviewing the content on this page, I hope you will consider working with me on participating in your future event.




What You Can Expect Working With Me

It is my hope that you will be pleased throughout our working relationship based on the custom service I provide. To that end, my team and I can provide:

  1. Prompt, professional replies to your phone calls and email messages.
  2. A personal phone consultation with me or a member of my team prior to your event, so we can better understand how I can best serve you and your audience.
  3. Periodic announcements about your event on my blog and social media channels. (If you desire additional visibility for your event).
  4. Pre-event and day of event media (interviews, pictures, etc.)
  5. A quick follow-up communication after the event with someone on my team, to make sure I met your expectations. (I also want to know how you think I can improve.)

For workshops or speaking engagements, I will provide the following in addition to the items listed above

  1. A professionally prepared, dynamically delivered presentation focused on achieving the outcomes you want with your audience.
  2. A custom resource page, exclusively created for your attendees. It will include the slides I used in the presentation, along with links to books, articles, and other resources I believe will be helpful.

If you have specific needs, let’s discuss them!
