CAPS Convention – July 2019 Update
There is simply no way to put into this newsletter all the amazing experts and topics that will be covered at the 2019 CAPS Convention but let me try! Each month, I’ll cover one day’s list of concurrent speakers, experts, and topics so you can start evaluating where you are going to spend your time when you are at the convention. Monday December 9th On Monday, we have an incredible mix of training and expertise that will surely help you increase the bottom-line of your speaking business. After all, getting more gigs, having more clients, and making more money ensures you stay in business and have the lifestyle you desire. Ask yourself, what is it I need to improve to attract more clients and make more sales? Is it to improve your delivery so you can become that desirable speaker, get more recurring business and referrals, and ensure your clients have a more engaging experience? Do you need to attract new clients and continue the conversation with existing clients that will help you keep your funnel full? Maybe you need a better understanding of how to create more products while running your business so you don’t overwhelm yourself and end up losing clients? If so, then this conference is going to feed your “speaker business” needs.
