Booked Bob to Speak Confirmation and Next Steps:
Thank you for booking me to speak at your event. I am delighted to have the opportunity.
Here are the Next Steps:
1. Sign the Agreement.
Please CLICK HERE to download the Speaking Agreement. Kindly fill this out and return it to me.
2. Help Me Learn About You and Your Needs.
A) Fill Out the Pre-Program Questionnaire.
Please CLICK HERE to download the Questionnaire that will help me deliver a great speech for your event. Please email to me.
I want to learn everything about you and your audience and how I can make your event successful. This questionnaire helps me prepare.
B) Schedule Time to Speak.
My process is as follows:
1) Hold one Phone Call #1 about 1-2 weeks after we have confirmed booking. The goal is to understand the agenda of the meeting, the audience, your wish list, read through and understand the questionnaire and get the logistics down clearly.
2) Hold Interviews. I like to have 2-3 interviews with colleagues in your organization for 20 minutes so as to better understand their thoughts and ideas and expectations of the event. This is to get a sense of the issues they may be facing, concerns they may have and bring a real world focus into my talk. All conversations are confidential and help me prepare a talk that resonates.
A sample email to colleagues might look like this:
3) Hold Phone Call #2 after the interviews so that I can start creating a framework and test to see if I’m on the right track.
4) Hold Phone Call #3 about 2 weeks prior to the event to make sure everything is on track.
C) Send me reading materials
Kindly send me any information that would be helpful in understanding your organization, your business, what your mission is and what you are going through. This can be any links to reports, studies, surveys, videos, agendas you had in the past, or presentations on initiatives or projects.
3. Buying Books/Products.
If you would like to buy my books, kindly buy them from Amazon.com link found here. They will get you the best delivery and price. If you would like to buy signed copies of my book at $10/book or would like me to create a customized “leave-behind” card for your event, I can do that with 2 months advance notice. Kindly email my assistant, Samantha Lerner: email@example.com or call me directly to discuss: +1.732.421.4099.
4. Make a Deposit Payment.
A 50% Deposit is required for all events so that I can hold your date. Upon receipt of the Signed Agreement, we will send you an invoice for the 50% Deposit.
5. Send an NDA if you like to ensure privacy and confidential sharing of information.
