A special message to association and society decision makers. I truly would like to interview you via Zoom about your meetings and use of paid speakers. You can watch all of my past interviews below. Why am I doing this? I have built a community of over 70 professional speakers that focus on speaking at meetings like yours and are subject matter experts for your non-dues revenue workshops. I want them to learn directly from you about working with organizations like yours…what you like and what you don’t like. This information will help them to be more professional and respectful of decision makers like yourself. And what’s in it for you? You will have access to great professional speakers you might not have ever considered. Let’s work together to create even more value for your members through meetings, workshops and online training. If you are part of the decision making process regarding the paid speakers that your organization might hire…I want to interview you. I’m happy to forward sample questions. It only takes 30 minutes and the value is limitless. Thank you, Ed Rigsbee, CSP, CAE – edrigsbee@gmail.com
