SpeakerHub has a growing list of partners and event organizers, including schools and universities, who use the site to find the right speakers for their events.
By adding your profile to the network, these partners and event organizers can find you and start contacting you about their upcoming events.
4. Be proactive and apply for events
Our Events Marketplace is at the heart of what we are creating at SpeakerHub: being the one-stop-shop for creating connections between speakers and event organizers.
We make it simple to find out about the latest events: either go to the search page and filter the results by location, topic or fee or have events tagged with your topic sent directly to your inbox.
Go to the events page.
5. Built for all kinds of speakers including trainers, conference speakers, and moderators: paid or volunteer
The site caters to anyone with expertise in any field who is open to speaking at conferences, events or schools as a paid or volunteer presenter.
Even if speaking is just a part-time interest, you can easily attract more projects without any radical change to your current agenda.
Our profiles are built to cater well to different types of users.
6. The profile tools are specifically created for highlighting the skills of public speakers, trainers, and moderators
The profiles are multimedia-rich: you can include videos and podcasts.
You can also attach portfolio material, like presentation slides, Prezis, articles, books, awards, and testimonials.
It is also a great resource to keep your speaking resume up to date online.
7. SpeakerHub's powerful search tools mean you’ll get better visibility
The search functions on our site are designed to get you noticed.
Fill in your specific topics, expertise, and fields of interest, languages, keywords, locations you are available to, and the kind of speaking you are interested in doing, and event organizers will have instant access to matching you up with their event or meeting.
The more easily they can find you, the more likely they are to contact you.
8. No exclusivity required: SpeakerHub is an additional avenue to promote yourself
We don’t require that you change anything about your current setup or that you use SpeakerHub exclusively.
We encourage you to continue working with your current speaking agencies, associations, and bureaus and use SpeakerHub as an additional tool.
You can connect your account with LinkedIn and other social media platforms to gain more contacts and build your community, the site can even help promote your website.
Think of us as another way for people to find you online.
9. You won't need to pitch yourself to get found
Spend more time doing what you love, and less time trying to market your speaking skills.
We all know how uneasy some speakers feel about pitching themselves to event organizers.
We offer an inbound marketing service, meaning you don’t have to find the meeting planners and organizers - instead, they will find you.
You don’t have to worry about a risk like investing in advertising: we will create strategic partnerships, and the organizers will be able to find you with little effort (or cost) on your part.
