Frankly Speaking… Secrets (Most) Planners Won’t Tell You

Do you wish you could peer into the minds of meeting planners to figure out what the heck they really want? Do you want to know the secrets to better prospecting, stronger relationship-building, and more bookings?

The market has gone through major changes in just the past few years, and planners have become well-trained in the art of ignoring you! How can you break through and make a real connection that leads to a booking? What are the best questions to ask them when you do connect? Which trends are planners seeing that you need to know about?

Join Bonni, Tracey, Maralynn and Shawna, who together have over 100 years of planner experience, as they reveal insider information from their new book written just for speakers. This will NOT be your typical, boring panel discussion! We’re going to have a real planner-to-planner conversation, and you get to hear it, warts and all. You won’t want to miss it, or all your NSA Houston friends will get the insider scoop and you’ll miss out. That’s just not cool.
