Call for Speakers announcement
The best way to START your speaking business is to develop an outstanding presentation. The best way to GROW your speaking business is to present that program at conferences.
Knowing how to properly submit for a Call for Speakers announcement is how you get accepted to speak at conferences. Being one of the best breakout speakers at that conference is often how you'll be selected as the keynote the following year. This is my model ... and it works.
Submitting for Call for Speakers announcements is how I went from ZERO to ELEVEN keynotes in just 6 months and a 6-figure speaking business the following year when I first started speaking. I don't write that to impress you, but rather to impress upon you that knowing how to build and run a speaking business is crucial if you want to become a professional speaker.
My speaking career began as a hobby speaking to college students. And most of my keynote inquiries came from speaking at college conferences like the one I'm sharing with you below.
If college students are your market, or you want them to be, you need to be aware of upcoming deadlines for college conferences. Good news for you is that one of the largest collegiate conferences has just announced a Call for Speakers at both the KEYNOTE and BREAKOUT level. But note how quick the turnaround time is to submit your proposal.

I've opened up limited spots on my calendar for the next 2 weeks to help you submit your Call for Speakers proposal. If you're serious about speaking to college students, then you must submit for these two AFLV conferences.
*** Or perhaps you're submitting for a professional conference and would appreciate my guidance to help you craft your submission properly so it stands out and differentiates you as the clear choice for the conference.
For the next few days I'm offering a brand new short-term coaching program I've named "Call for Speakers Coaching!"
"Call for Speakers Coaching" includes: (1) Brand new Tip Sheet walking you through the important elements of submitting a proposal
(2) 1st coaching call: 45 minute pre-submission coaching call with me to talk through your event and share guidance (45 minutes) (3) My personal review of your submission materials with feedback provided and an overall assessment (2.0+ hours) (4) 2nd coaching call: 45 minute follow up coaching call with me to discuss my feedback, discuss more questions from you, review your final submission, and discuss tips to help you prepare for submission and the speech itself! (45 minutes)
** My normal coaching rate is $229/hour and I've valued my "Call for Speakers Coaching" at $1,299. however, while I'm home with my new baby girl, I'm offering my "Call for Speakers Coaching" for just $399 only to those of you on my PAID to $PEAK subscriber list.
Is a 6-figure speaking business worth $399 investment in your speaking business? I hope so.
... I'M ALSO LIMITING THIS TO 10 PEOPLE.
Look, my struggling speaking business was floundering until I discovered a new model that worked. And if you want to make money speaking, follow my association model (Module 3 in my book - "PAID to $PEAK") which I'm offering to you right now.
After finally figuring it out, I went from ZERO to ELEVEN keynotes in just 6 months and a 6-figure speaking business the following year.
You can also take my guidance and recommendations to apply it with other conference Call for Speakers submissions as well. I'll show you how to do that. this short-term coaching opportunity will be one of the best investments you've ever made.
But I'm only offering this for the next week only.
