Speaker Sales Systems with Shawn Rhodes

Shawn Rhodes, host of the only podcast, blog and free weekly video series on speaker sales, is one of the only speakers on the planet whose pipeline has continued to grow during COVID-19 - without referrals. Shawn, immediate past-president of NSA Central Florida, will share with NSA Arizona how to build a speaker sales system that creates predictable revenue even for virtual speaking engagements; getting beginning speakers paying gigs and curing the feast-and-famine rollercoaster that even experienced speakers struggle with. Whether you're starting your speaking career and wondering what to say on the phone with a decision-maker or you're a veteran speaker and concerned about what happens when the phone stops ringing, you'll leave Shawn's session with the tools to regain control of your business.

Attendees will take away:

-The ability to stop selling keynotes and workshops, and instead sell high-fee solutions to problems

-A scalable marketing and sales process to begin using immediately

-The ability to do what few speakers in the world can do – actually predict revenue in their speaking business


BONUS: We'll be GIVING AWAY our Prospect Insight Guide - everything we scrub a prospect against to ensure we never cold call again!
