Project Description

I am a global social entrepreneur, highly celebrated global keynote speaker, philanthropist, singer songwriter and author with the biggest publisher in the US and an extensive and excellent track record of speaking engagements.

I am looking for a highly qualified freelance professional who can book paid speaking gigs for me and handle and coordinate all my speaking engagements, including with my agencies.

The events where I speak at and the summits/conferences I have hosted are focused on entrepreneurship, peak performance, innovation excellence, creativity, philanthropy, music, a wide range of business topics, and others.

We can discuss whether you want to be paid hourly or be paid a percentage of whatever fee you can negotiate for my speaking gigs.

Preference will be given to highly qualified bookers who opt to take percentage of fee since I am placed in top tier of speaking fees.

- Must be very familiar with the world of speaker booking and speaking agencies

- Must have proven experience and successful track record in the industry

- Must be able to negotiate payments and get the highest amount for speaking, without my assistance

- Must be able to coordinate and create my schedule (together with my scheduling assistant)

- Must research, acquire and close new leads and contracts for speaking, either at universities and colleges, business schools, corporations, conventions, conferences, summits, etc

- Must take and deliver on leads and contacts handed over by client (myself)

- Must liaise and handle all contacts with existing agencies (will receive commission of every speaker booking that comes in from agencies)

- Must research and establish contact with new speaker agencies and, after sign up, handle all logistical matters and communication with agency network (will receive commission of every speaker booking that comes in from agencies)

A wide variety of marketing and PR materials already available and new updated ones created regularly. Support team of PR and social media experts readily available.

My book has a PR campaign spanning over many months ahead and across all genres of traditional and new media: TV, print, radio, online, social media

which gives the booking agent excellent support to generate maximum number of bookings in time period and beyond.

Looking for a long term partnership if you can prove yourself. Looking to start immediately.
