Keeping track of your speakers and their applications is seldom straightforward.
When we talk with some of our clients, organizers who are managing dozens of speakers at once, one issue that kept coming up was how challenging it is to keep track of:
Which events speakers had applied to
Where they were in the application process
Who had been hired, who had not
Finding event details (including the contact information of the event organizer) quickly and efficiently.
We have spent the past year looking at how to resolve this challenge, and are excited to announce that we have launched our newest feature, the 3-in-1 corporate speaker CRM.
The 3-in-1 corporate speaker CRM is a robust tool for corporate communications departments to manage their in-house speaker bureau.
How can the 3-in-1 corporate speaker CRM help?
We ensure that the speaker CRM directory system is flexible to list hundreds of speakers and field any number of requests and speaking opportunities from departments around the world. It is a complex, yet easy-to-use, tool that will ensure that individual speakers or agency managers can edit speakers’ profiles easily to keep them up to date.
The speaker bureau or agency manager dashboard lists all your associated speakers, tracks all flagged events and speaking opportunities, and managers can edit or update any data, notification preference, or other settings.
If preferred, any speaker’s inbound messages can be routed to and centralized in the speaker bureau manager’s SpeakerHub inbox (and/or receive email notifications) so the manager can handle correspondence for them. Managers can add private notes to each speaker’s profile that only the manager will see.
Managers can see statistics about visits to each speaker’s profile, including the number of contacts they received.
How does it work?
Simply put, we’ve called the CRM the 3-in-1 for a reason.
It serves three main functions:
Organizes your speakers, including helping you identify your in-house talent. If many of your staff experts have been speaking at virtual/online and in-person events, it can be hard to find the right person when a request comes in or when you want your organization to be represented at an industry event. Our directory helps you manage your in-house speakers.
Find calls for speakers: Find industry events for your speakers. Each week, we list about 50-70 new events from around the globe looking for speakers. You can also add events your corporate communications team knows of, and assign speakers to the right opportunities to ensure your brand is seen wherever it needs to be present.
Manage the workflow and reports: Manage the internal approval process. Our robust, customizable workflow management system powers your in-house speaker bureau and helps you manage the entire process from speaker invitation, internal approvals, all the way to post-event reporting. Our reporting system helps you calculate ROI and generate reports with KPIs.
