Q: Do you keynote, chair, and moderate? How
about luncheons and banquets?
I have "served" at luncheons and banquets, and understand the unique requirements of presenting before, during, or just after a meal has been served.
I am especially strong at openings and closings. To start, you need to wake the crowd up, and get them prepared for the show to come. To close, you need to make people feel good about the presentation they just witnessed.
And of course, you need a rousing call to action - to support an issue, vote for a candidate, donate to a worthy cause, buy a book, CD, DVD, or seminar series, or, just leave the building. This is show business, you've put up the Big Top, and I'm your PT Barnum.
Q: What is the typical duration of your
For example, the Internet chapter could take up a full-day seminar (covering List-Building, Search Engine Optimization, Links, AutoResponders, Shopping Carts, etc). Alternatively, we can cover just one section of the chapter in a one hour breakout session (Search Engine Optimization). Or, just one sidebar in a 15-30 minute presentation (Off-Page Search Engine Optimization).
I will do whatever is necessary to accommodate your requirements.
Here is a strategy that could save you money - by having me available for both a keynote presentation and breakout session later in the day, you get two speakers for the price of one, and save on travel and expenses.
Q: Will you have books, CDs, and DVDs
Books, CDs, and DVDs can be used as giveaways for attendees, sign-up premiums for early-bird reservations, door prizes, or table centerpieces. Why waste money on centerpiece flowers that will be thrown away, when attendees can leave with a valuable book that serves as a memory of the conference? It'll probably cost about the same. Save the flowers for a wedding or Valentine's Day. This is business!
Some (rare) presentations prefer not to have my books and products compete with their own sales, in which case my price per presentation is slightly higher, and I leave the books at the office.
