Do you want to get more bookings, engage bookers and be visible??
The theme of this meeting is using your personal story to engage a client to book you to speak AND how to use social media to get more speaking engagements. We are joined by two outstanding speakers: Warren Knight who shares ‘How To Build Your Brand Awerness using Social Media As A Speaker’ and Michael McGrath who shares his expertise in ‘Powerful Insights’ about the client/speaker briefing process.
Michael McGrath: After being diagnosed with the muscle wasting disease Muscular Dystrophy (MD) aged just 18yrs in 1984, Michael made history 20 years later by becoming the first disabled person to lead expeditions to the North and South Poles.
The journey gave rise to a new life plan, inspiring Michael to embark on a career as a speaker. He has built an enviable list of clients, providing carefully tailored keynotes for organisations including Roche, Shell, the NHS, PwC and HMRC’s 2017 Senior Leadership Conference.
Leadership, courage and trust combined with resolute self-belief, confidence, teamwork and a singularly focused obsession towards achieving desired outcomes were critical success factors – Michael draws on these experiences, giving relevant wider business and powerful life lessons.
