Insights from Meeting Planners on Making an Impression, Booking Stages, Getting Paid, and Getting Invited Back Next Year

Speakers are always asking how to make a good impression with a meeting planner. How do you go from a total unknown to a booked speaker? Where should you invest your time when you’re just getting started? What are the secret mistakes that other prospective speakers make?

In this session, we'll bring together top meeting planners, including Linda Hampton, Executive Vice President and Owner of Norris Conference Centers, to give the inside scoop on what works for them and, more importantly, what doesn’t.
