Stop Waiting for the Phone to Ring! — Outbound sales and marketing to go get the paid speaking gigs you want 

Here is the uncomfortable truth: Most speakers starve. Making money as a paid speaker is NOT about: Following your passion, living your truth, sharing your authentic self, lighting someone's fire, Blah, blah, blah... 

Getting hired (and paid well) to speak, IS ABOUT using your knowledge, passion, skills and experience to solve a problem an organization is willing to pay to solve…and then marketing the heck out it! 

In this candid, no-holds-barred session, successful international speaker, David Avrin CSP, Global Speaking Fellow, will share the outbound marketing and sales strategies and tactics his team uses to pitch him to organizations and meeting planners around the world. From researching lists and crafting pitch letters, to CRM systems, virtual staff and strategic follow-up, David will show you how he and his team fill his calendar with paid speaking gigs.

One of the most in-demand Customer Experience and Marketing speakers in the world today

David's business insights have been featured on hundreds of broadcast media outlets and thousands of online and print publications around the world. He is also the author of three books including the acclaimed: It's Not Who You Know, It's Who Knows You!,Visibility Marketing, and his newest book: Why Customers Leave (and How to Win Them Back) was named by Forbes as one of the: 7 Business Books Entrepreneurs Need to Read.”  Available everywhere and coming soon in Spanish, Chinese and Russian and just released in India!
