Stephanie Angelo on How to Get Booked at HR Conferences

Stephanie Angelo on How to Get Booked at HR Conferences

June 20, 2019

Ep #09 - Stephanie Angelo, the NSA Arizona Chapter Programs Chair, joins me on the show today to discuss how speakers can get booked at HR conferences. Beyond her current role with the NSA, Stephanie is the former chair for SHRM: Society for Human Resource Management, a Member of Toastmasters, International speaker, and even the creator of a Domestic Violence awareness board game!

Stephanie keynotes and facilitates workshops on Cultures of Learning as well as Strategic Thinking and Collaborative Accountability. She is a Mastermind group leader for business owners ranging from marketers to designers, financial planners, and recruiting firms.  She helps entrepreneurs grow and build their businesses while boosting sales, revenue, and market share.

Stephanie has a unique talent for connecting people and creating collaborative relationships that result in quantifiable growth. She is innovative and builds teams that make more money, blow away their competition, and form better businesses as a result.

To learn more about SHRM, "Society for Human Resource Management," find their website below in the notes and be aware that the organization puts out a call for speakers about 8 months prior to their conference.

The NSA Arizona chapter runs nine monthly programs a year. Stephanie is watching for speakers who would bring super useful tools, and would teach things the members can apply immediately. She says if you send a cold email, she actually reads them and if it's a fit you may get booked. She also says word of mouth if incredibly important, in fact that's how we met! Never shy away from speaking gigs that can get you known better and get your name out!

Stephanie also shares what NOT to do. For example, DON'T forget to follow up, honor deadlines, have your material ready, and treat local chapters like high paying clients!

Elisa Hays - Getting Booked at Fairs, Festivals, and NSA

Elisa Hays - Getting Booked at Fairs, Festivals, and NSA

June 12, 2019

Ep #08 - Elisa Hays, an international speaker and entrepreneur, joins the show today for an interview to discuss how to get booked to speak by fairs and festivals as well as how to bring a performance based speech. Additionally, we explore what it takes to get booked into associations relating to the fair industry such as the IAFE (International Association of Fairs and Exhibitions). Elisa is the president of the National Speaker Association's Northwest Chapter and we even discuss how to get booked to speak there. 

Elisa began speaking, training and business consulting in 1999 while building "Let’s Pretend Entertainment," a family-centric theater company where fairs and festivals would bring her in along with her speakers to put on entertaining shows with high audience engagement. Elisa eventually sold that business after 15 years of speaking and putting on shows.

Elisa also shares very candidly about her life changing moment being hit by a semi truck going 65 mph while she was standing still. It's an incredible story of overcoming, leadership, resilience, and sacrifice. Listen in, I promise you will be transformed because of it. She is amazing, and you will love this interview!
