'How to Become
a Sought-After Corporate Spokesperson'

Guest Experts: Mary LoVerde and Mike Finn

The Program:

As speakers, trainers, and consultants, you may come across spokesperson opportunities many times a year but fail to recognize them. They slip away — perhaps going to someone else who's more astute about picking up the cues. Don't let the next lucrative possibility pass you by.

The session will be rich with specific examples of what has worked and techniques to avoid. This is not about cold calling PR firms, but rather how to precisely position yourself so the client feels you "get it" and can't live without you.

You will learn:

  • capitalize on the opportunities by understanding what your role is and what you can do to close the deal
  • articulate your established market and who else (what organization) needs to reach them
  • expand way beyond the obvious
  • bridge the gap from the client's brand to how your ideas, products or core messages solves a problem for their market
  • package your idea and make adapting your concepts easy for the client to understand and buy

More about our guest expert:

She has also represented Yoplait, Ragu, Hershey, Tide, Febreeze, Reclast, Viactiv, The Better Sleep Council and Camp to Belong.

"The most creative execution means nothing if it does not change consumer behavior."

'Self-Publishing Secrets:
How to Produce Your Own Bestseller'

Guest Expert: Elaine Floyd

Additional resources for this seminar:

Handout — (PDF, 1.4MB)

The Program:

The old publishing model is nearly dead for most authors. Finding an agent, then a publisher, then waiting 18-24 months for the book to be produced is way too long for entrepreneurs who can sell their book to their clients, in the back of the room and on the Internet.

But for your book to sell well and be positively received, you don't just format it in Word and duplicate it at Kinko's. You need to understand the nuances of creating a book that looks like it's from a big publisher, even if you're on a tight budget.

Elaine Floyd has produced top-selling books herself; she also has two titles published with major publishers. She's learned that self-publishing is the best way for speakers, trainers and consultants to get their message to their market, as well as make more money. Lots more money. People began flocking to her to ask her advice as she seemed to have unlocked the magic formula for producing high-quality books and selling thousands of them. She began to consult with others who wanted to duplicate her success. She now helps clients create books that drive business.

You will learn:

  • how to create a system for selling not just one book, but a series
  • why your book must exceed the standards of major publishers
  • the three critical components to making your book a success and what most self-publishers skip — to their book's detriment
  • key components of a jump-off-the-shelf cover
  • internal layout tips that separate "home-made" from professional
  • how to decide between soft- and hard-cover

More about our guest expert:

Elaine Floyd maximizes value to her consulting clients through her unique experience of having been commercially published, self-published and, through her EFG imprint, commercially publishing the works of other authors.

As an information products creator for over 20 years, she helps her clients achieve a competitive edge by combining her direct knowledge of publishing with trends in the book industry to develop publishing systems and strategies.

Together, she's sold almost half a million books. Elaine's work has been featured in AdWeek, The New York Times, Good Morning America, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, Inc. Magazine, Better Homes & Gardens and on The Today Show. Her work has been sold to Walmart, major book and craft stores, libraries, catalogs, Doubleday Business Book Club, seminar companies and international publishers for translation into languages such as Russian and Chinese.

'Making a Big Splash with Your Book'

Guest Expert: Arielle Ford

The Program:

No longer can you create a bestselling book just by doing a book tour and media. The industry has changed, and what worked in the past doesn't work now. So what can you do to create book sales? What are the "biggies" doing now that you can learn from? What should you avoid? Arielle will share the current truth about book promotion and ideas for what you can do sell your book to more buyers.

You will learn:

  • How has the book promotion process changed in the last few years.
  • What doesn't work any more, so don't waste your time.
  • What does work and how you can promote smarter.
  • What you need to hear about book promotion but you probably don't want to hear.
  • What Arielle has done to promote others' books and how you can adapt it to yours.

More about our guest expert:

Arielle Ford has mastered the art of making things happen. Whether generating widespread news coverage, creating a successful special event or launching leaders in the field of human potential, Arielle knows who, what, when, where and how to do it.

'Uncommon Model for Speaking as Much
as You Want — And
Being Paid Handsomely for It'

Guest Expert: Ed Foreman, CPAE

The Program:

Tired of chasing the latest technology-dependent business model? Exhausted at the idea of having to post another tweet, blog, Facebook or LinkedIn update? Want a dependable income model that allows you to speak in your home town (if you want)—and get paid really well to do it?

During four decades, Ed has perfected this model. He shares how he fills his 3-day programs by selling dozens of seats to the same handful of companies over and over and over again. His 80-person courses are full far in advance without any ongoing marketing, giving him time to speak more—if he wants—or go on a motorcycle trip. And he never has the stress of updating his PowerPoints or having his technology fail—he doesn't use any!

This 77-year-young speaker has lots to share with other, less-experienced speakers. Learn to adapt his ideas to your market and life preferences and you'll be as energetic as he is!

You will learn:

  • identify and approach companies you want to work with
  • sell the program once and have a steady stream of participants that lasts for years, if not decades
  • use this model when a traditional approach for public workshops doesn't
  • capitalize on why companies value this approach better than having a speaker/trainer conduct in-house workshops
  • double your participants and increase their take-away value with one easy suggestion
  • maintain this model, even with diminishing education budgets

The Program:

Laurie will share the truth behind getting on talk shows. She knows what works from her eight years as an Oprah Winfrey Show producer, as well as what current talk show producers want. You'll learn the true secrets behind talk shows.

By attending this seminar, you will learn:

You will learn:

  • How to target your pitch to what each show's producers want.
  • What turns off and annoys producers.
  • How you can make yourself irresistible to talk shows.
  • What talk shows are looking for -- and what they aren't!
  • Simple things you *must* do before calling a producer.

More about our guest expert:

Laurie Fried began her television career at a local show, called the Oprah Winfrey Show. No one imagined when this Chicago morning show was nationally syndicated; it would become a part of television history. When Harpo, (Oprah's production company) was founded, Fried was one of the first members. At Harpo, she worked her way up from a receptionist, to Director of Marketing and Promotion, and she performed every job in between. During her eight-year tenure with the Emmy Award winning talk show, Fried received a wealth of experience and worked in almost every facet of the business including production, promotion and publicity. She won a myriad of honors for her promotion and graphic work, including the prestigious PROMAX Gold Medallions, the Monitor and Telly Awards.

When Fried started as Director of Creative Services for the Jerry Springer Show, the topics were serious and the show was about to be canceled. When she told people she worked for the Jerry Springer Show, they would reply, "Jerry who?" Now, Jerry Springer is a household name. However, Fried does not take all the credit. "The nudity and fighting might have helped, just a bit." Fried also helped launch the "Too Hot For TV" video series, which sold more than a million copies in less than a year.

Fried has booked television appearances on a wide spectrum of shows including The View with Barbara Walters, Home and Garden Television, The Sally Jessy Raphael Show, The Rosie O'Donnell Show, The Montel Williams Show, MTV's WebRIOT, Real World and Road Rules, CNN, CNNfn, CNBC, MSNBC, Good Morning America, The Today Show, CBS, NBC, ABC, and Fox News (national and local) as well as E! News Daily, Wheel of Fortune, Entertainment Tonight and Access Hollywood.

In 1998, Fried launched her own promotion and publicity firm, Laurie Fried & Associates, which specializes in garnering publicity for Internet web sites. Representing some of the fastest growing companies on the net, LFA-PR creates a spectrum of innovative promotions and appearances on television and radio. Their elite, cutting-edge clients include: Furniture.com, Art.com, eBags.com and Wine.com.
