Executive Visibility Speaker Programs

Speaking in front of prospective customers and clients is a powerful and proven marketing, PR and business development tool that demonstrates thought leadership. We get results. We’ve secured hundreds of high-impact speaking engagements at events worldwide in virtually every industry sector and for every department or field – locally, nationally, and internationally.

We’ll develop an executive speaking program to meet your objectives:

  • visibility: build or broaden awareness of your brands, services or organization
  • business development: speak to prospective customers and clients
  • marketing and public relations: support your message and focus

Our goal is to obtain effective speaking engagements for our clients – panels, solo presentations, and Keynotes. We do this by using established relationships with conference program directors and through extensive event research to identify targeted speaking opportunities. We develop and submit persuasive speaker abstracts and proposals, tailored to the needs of each audience and maximizing our clients’ expertise.

Training/Workshop for In-House Staff

We offer training to teach your internal staff the techniques to create a successful executive visibility speaker program. This can be done for an individual, or for a group in a customized workshop format. We’ll teach you the techniques that will give you the inside track on how to obtain targeted speaking engagements. Further, you will get a review of your speaker program strategy, learn how to target prospective speaking opportunities, and we’ll review any existing presentation abstracts.
