Free or Low-Cost Seminars and Keynote Presentations

I recently received a call from a long-time friend and fellow professional speaker. He was calling to share some very positive information about a recent success and to thank me for our contribution to that success—even though we were unaware of our participation.

Like so many other businesses, we’ve witnessed a number of existing and potential clients voicing a legitimate concern about the state of the economy and their existing budget for events such as seminars, keynotes or additional training for their employees. At the same time, these organizations certainly realize the importance of education and training as our nation faces greater challenges today than ever before. It is indeed a dilemma.

A few years ago, we shared a proven strategy with our clients who found themselves in need of assistance. Of course, we also shared this unique approach with a number of our friends and associates. My friend called to report that he had just returned from working with a client in Arizona. He facilitated a three-day series of successful seminars and, in addition, reduced his total cost to the client by 75%! It was obviously a win-win situation for everyone involved. This type of partnering is essential in today’s challenging environment.

Below you will find that powerful strategy that is currently posted on our web site. Look it over, discuss it with your leadership team and start planning today to provide your organization with the seminar, keynote address or additional training that will provide that critical decisive edge needed to insure your success in today’s very competitive global environment. At the same time, enjoy tremendous savings by simply thinking smarter rather than working harder! Do it today!

Keynote and Seminar Cost Reduction Strategy

There are a number of methods for reducing the cost of your keynote presentation or seminar.

Find an organization(s) in your community that will sponsor your event by covering the cost or partial cost involved. Benefits include:

  • Drastically reduced cost
  • Advertising for sponsor
  • Free attendance for sponsor and guests (executives, board members, key employees, family, etc.)
  • Include sponsor information in articles in local newspapers and magazines, television human interest stories and interviews, lobby cards, program hand-outs, and verbal introduction prior to the actual program. For instance:
    • Airfare, ground transportation, and hotel accommodations for Dr. Drake’s appearance provided by our friends at Unity Hospitality.
    • Harry K. Jones appears courtesy of:
