Friends, Romans, countrymen ... let me be your speaker
I've been offering seminars and training for the past ten years at large and small tradeshows. I'd like to book more engagements each year and expand beyond this niche into speaking and training on broader, small-to-medium business topics. I've investigated joining a speaker's association, but I need to have proof of many more paid engagements than I currently have to meet the minimum requirement. How does a speaker go about getting more engagements including meetings, conventions, seminars and tradeshows?
