LOS ANGELES, CA, May 01, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- If you've been to a conference lately you've no doubt seen a fair number of speakers, from the keynote to breakout speakers, to panel speakers, and MCs. But behind the scenes many of these speakers are being asked to work for free.
Professional innovation speaker Julie Austin began using her innovation and inventing background and came up with a better way. After hearing for the hundredth time that the meeting planner wasn't paying speakers, she started asking if she could just get her own sponsor. And that's what she did.
"It worked like a charm", said Julie. "The audience got a great content rich speech, the sponsor got their message in front of a targeted market, the meeting planner looked like a hero, and I got paid. What could be better?"
But getting a sponsor was a long, tedious process. That's when Speaker Sponsor was born. Speaker Sponsor puts everything in one place, so the speakers can showcase opportunities they need sponsors for and the sponsors get to view a wide range of speaking opportunities that they can sponsor. Voila! No more speaking for free.
Speaker Sponsor is more than just a directory. Members get ongoing training in sponsorship and speaking. Several times a year speakers have the chance to enter a contest, and one lucky winner gets an actual sponsorship. The prizes range from $1,000 to $10,000 and could be a large or small corporation. The Platinum VIP membership also works on the same principal as a speaker's bureau, where the bureau takes a percentage of any sponsorships they get the speaker.
