“I need entertaining and informative speakers for my event and/or strong, well-written contributions for my blog, book, or publication.”
Who You Are
Nothing makes you happier than seeing your audience get excited about a presentation or flooding your website with comments discussing your latest post. You’re hosting an event or are otherwise responsible for finding quality speakers for your organization. Or you are the editor of a blog, magazine, anthology or other publication and you need contributors of content appropriate for your audience. You want:
- practical, meaty advice for your audience about writing and publishing
- well-written, interesting, and relevant content on health and wellness, mind/body/spirit, home and garden, business, relationships, and other topics of interest to women readers
- clean, reliable content that’s ready to deliver
- an engaging, informative expert who knows her stuff and makes learning fun
- someone who knows how to keep a discussion lively and moving forward
What You’re Struggling With
You’ve seen too many presenters who are experts in their fields, but who leave audiences bored or overwhelmed. Sometimes they inform but forget the how. It’s hard to find speakers with the right balance of industry savvy and presentation ability. Similarly, when you’ve approached experts to contribute to your publication, you’re frequently disappointed to find that their knowledge is good, but their delivery is snooze-worthy or worse, in need of a veritable rewrite just to make it readable. Why is it that so many experts focus on sharing what they want audiences to know instead of understanding what the audience wants, and needs, to know? Seems like everyone is a diva who needs handling. You know what your audience wants and you feel frustrated that it takes so much out of you to give it to them.
How I Can Help
What you want right now is someone who has experience delivering information to reading and live audiences without putting them to sleep, and who has the industry creds to back up her opinions and instruction. You want a team-player who can own her role in your overall agenda and who is responsive to your content needs. That describes me to a T! I’ve spoken to audiences ranging from federal employees to small business owners to creative writers, and I’ve done it online and all over the country at private events, conferences, and even for colleges. I’ve moderated panels, led workshops as short as one day and as long as eight weeks, and my results are consistently positive. I’m driven by the connections I make with my audience, excited by every “A-ha” moment I can help facilitate. And I take the same approach when I write guest blog posts, articles, and book chapters. Just check out my portfolio or my recent speaking gigs to see the range of my experience and some of the great feedback I’ve received.
