Have you ever been frustrated by speakers bureaus?
Have you been struggling to keep up with all the changes in the speaking industry?
Are you ready to increase your fee, but you just don’t know how?
Are you looking for some fresh ideas on how to stir up new business?
These are just a few of the topics I discussed during my recent interview with Brooks Gibbs from Youth Speaker University, and you can listen to the full audio here:
And if you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend reading the recent Inc. magazine feature on “The Art and Business of Motivational Speaking” which centers around Brooks and YSU’s founder, Josh Shipp. (Josh is one of the nation’s top youth speakers and was named one of Inc.’s “30 Under 30” in 2009.)
These guys are doing some exciting things, and as a matter of fact, if you’re either an established or an up-and-coming youth speaker, go register for Josh’s FREE video series on how to make an impact and an income as a youth speaker. (Available for a limited time.)
Leave a comment below and let me know what you learned from the interview — and I’d especially be interested in your feedback on our talk about what “Speakers Bureau 2.0” and/or a 360-degree speaker support firm might look like. Would you be interested in this kind of partnership?
