I will teach you to ________

July 15, 2013

The second half of 2013 is barely under way, and I already have three speaking gigs lined up.

But plenty more spots are available.

If you need me to deliver a keynote or train your group on a topic, contact me.

I’ll ask you about:

  • audience size, their experience level and their preferences;
  • location, time and date;
  • duration (and if breaks are built in);
  • goal for your meeting;
  • technical stuff (podium, mic, projector, screen, wi-fi, Ethernet);
  • if I can survey the attendees ahead of time;
  • previous meeting topics;
  • scope of presentation;
  • desired takeaways;
  • budget.

I’ll guide you on how much material can be covered in the time allotted, and more importantly, how much information audience members can effectively take in during that period.

My fee varies, but usually starts at $500, plus travel costs for outside Birmingham. (I waive my fee for schools and nonprofit groups, but limit those talks to one per month.) That fee covers not only my time at your event, but also hours of research, writing and preparation.

I have spoken at huge conferences and small clubs. My topics include, but are not limited to:

  • social media,
  • blogging,
  • public relations,
  • digital marketing,
  • email,
  • metrics,
  • content marketing,
  • strategy,
  • trends,
  • corporate storytelling,
  • journalism and media,
  • writing,
  • SEO/SEM,
  • software, platforms and tools,
  • networking,
  • leadership,
  • time management
  • and much more.

The more specific your request, the better I can serve you and your group. I love meeting new people and learning how to serve their needs best.

I typically need 60 days notice to put an event on my calendar and prepare for it. But I’ve put together workshops in less than 2 weeks, so yes, contact me if your original speaker cancels at the last minute.

Audience members love my straightforward approach, my polished presentations and my interaction with them from beginning to end. Event planners love my thoroughness and my targeted plan for each talk I give.

I’m ready to make your group smarter and better prepared for any aspect of communication, old or new. Put me to work.
