In five years, I have been a speaker at hundreds of conferences and I joined a similar number of community and company events. Thanks to the many discussions I had with event organizers, I understand the value of a top keynote speaker. When you invite me to speak at your event, this is what I intend to offer you.
I have a newsletter with thousands of subscribers and many followers on various social networks. When you invite me to speak at your event, I will gladly help you to promote it, when you ask this of me.
You might be interested in organizing a video interview, a podcast, or a written interview, several weeks before the event. When the effort is less than 30 minutes, I will make sure to be available, and you can use the result in any way you see fit.
At in-person events, I usually give away one or two free copies of my book, sometimes during a Q&A session, sometimes to random participants who are watching the Twitter stream. No matter how I do this, I like to keep it unpredictable. (More books are available for a small fee.)
Most of my performance is usually standard and well-rehearsed. However, I like making small modifications, and I usually improvise a bit. Before or after my talk, I will give you the custom slide deck so you can distribute it among your event participants.
When you share with me the evaluation or average ratings of my performance by your attendees, I gladly share these results on my website, with a permanent link to your event.
My fees depend on the expected duration of my performance and on the average price level per country. Check out the separate page with my standard fees.
In everything I do, I have never harmed an event organizer. (Well, not that I’m aware of!) You can expect me to practice what I preach, lead by example, and be valuable to you to the best of my abilities.
Per your request, I can record a small video that will entice people to register for your event. You can edit it and publish the result on your website and social channels, and I will happily assist with the promotion.
When you have a discount code for my readers, I will be happy to share the discount on my mailing list and my social network streams.
If you want copies of my latest book for your volunteers, or to give away as prizes among attendees, I can give you a great discount. You can even make some money by reselling the books at the regular price. And I will be happy to sign them all!
For any talk that is not a first-time presentation, I allow paying clients to capture me on video.
Depending on the available time and my commitments to other events, I do my best to attend some other sessions, and to share my experiences on the social networks. (This only applies to in-person events.)
As an experienced speaker, conference attendee, and event organizer myself, I will be happy to share with you any feedback that could make your next event even better!
