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!
