Thought Leadership as a Marketing Strategy for Professional Speakers

We’ve all heard the phrase, “The Riches are in the Niches” – but what does that really mean to an established, veteran speaker? If you want to be known as a thought leader (and be able to charge more money for your unique expertise), this session will give you the blueprint to create your strategy to be known in your niche AND to be found in the sea of talented speakers.

In this session, you will discover:

  1. An energizing technique to discover potential “hyper-niche” areas
  2. Five different strategies you can pull from to be known as a thought leader
  3. An easy-to-follow process to create your own personal roadmap to success

Pricing Strategies in the Post-Covid World

How do you price a virtual event, hybrid, or F2F event in the post-covid world?  Kristin will share a tested model to help you think through your pricing model as we move into the new normal(s).

In this session, you will discover:

  1. Seven different pricing different mindsets
  2. The formula for determining your optimal fee
  3. LOTs of levers to increase or decrease your fee
  4. Myriad compensation strategies to bridge the gap between the fee you want and the fee they are willing to pay

You’ll walk away with a generic proposal that you can adapt to your own speaking business!
