Einstein once said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. We’re familiar with this popular saying, yet too many companies keep booking their hotels, cruises and speakers on their own.
When you find a great speaker online and book them directly, not only do you have to handle the contracting, but also the moment when they call the day before your event to say they have a family emergency. Then what will you do? You can avoid this type of disaster by having a partner that can save the day for you.
• Using a speaker’s bureau can result in getting a last-minute replacement speaker–forget putting your head actuary on stage to motivate the producers.
• Take the risk out of signing the contract with an advocate on your side.
• Receive additional concessions and favor rates on certain occasions. You don’t know what to ask for, but your partner goes to dinner and spends time vacationing with these speakers, so many times, favors can come into play.
Using our NO-COST hotel / cruise and speaker research and contracting services removes many stressors from your event-planning process. We’ll ask the right questions to get you in contact with the best speaker–and often for less than you budgeted.
