The Referral Speaker: Use the gigs you get to get the gigs you want.

We spend a ton of time building our personal brand. We write blog posts and record our podcasts. We post on Instagram and upload to YouTube. We refine our speaking website, work on that book, participate in Clubhouse, and comment on LinkedIn. We share our expertise and insight freely.

It turns out that all of that hard work might get you one gig. Unfortunately, none of those things will guarantee you the next gig.

What if you became a referable speaker?

It’s the fastest, most practical way to increase your fee and generate more leads. Instead of investing in marketing yourself as a great speaker, invest in your speech. Because, unless you’re famous, event organizers don’t buy you (or your personal brand.) They buy the speech, then your idea, then you – in that order.

In this ground-breaking, hour-long, virtual session, Michael Port and Andrew Davis will break down the three F+E+E Factors: Fame, Entertainment, & Expertise. You’ll learn how to increase your entertainment value, how to make the leap to the keynote stage and the elegantly simple secret to becoming a big fish in a small pond.

You’ll leave with an entirely new, eye-opening, and refreshing understanding of how the speaking business works and how you can make an impact fast.

Do you have what it takes to become a referable speaker?

You do.
