Within five miles from where you are now, there are hundreds of qualified prospects
— perhaps even THOUSANDS —
eager to hear AND applaud you?
How much longer will you keep them waiting?

First they want to listen to you speak -- without interruption. Then they want to ask you questions about your expertise and your specialty.

Some may want an appointment with you right now A few want a business card to pass on to a dear friend who has an urgent need for what you offer. Many are ideal candidates for your pipeline because they will need your services in the months and years to come.

Smart professionals know this, and that’s why they continually look for speaking opportunities with local organizations catering to members that naturally fit their target market.

By becoming “THE SPEAKER” to groups that cater to your target market you AUTOMATICALLY position yourself as the GO-TO EXPERT in your specialty.

It´s like taking 40 people to lunch at once
— without it costing you a dime!

But wait. . . .

If you have ever actively pursued speaking opportunities then you know that this approach can be a great way to prospect, but finding the right speaking gigs can also be

A Time-sucking,
black hole of frustration.

That is why we created freespeakerbureau.com

  • No more hunting (or hoping) for a good local speaking opportunity.
  • No more wasting money giving "free seminars" that cost you thousands
  • No more begging and disrespect (at least, not from your speaking audience)
  • No more wasted hours speaking to an audience that has TOO LITTLE in common with your target market
  • No more wondering if the next group will treat you like a professional.

Beware the "free seminar" trap that steals your time & money.

Some industry guru´s and publicity experts will tell you to put on your own free seminars to grow your business.

Here´s what they don´t tell you...

  1. You´ll easily burn through $4,000 just in marketing to get 50 targeted prospects into a room.
  2. You´ll have to pay to rent the room. (Not including add´l fees for a/v equipment, whiteboard use, even the microphone.)
  3. You´ll have to pay to feed the audience, or at least provide simple refreshments. (Think gas prices are expensive? Wait till you see the catering department´s bill for a few pots of seminar-room coffee!)

Is there an alternative to the free seminar trap? You bet there is!

Frequently Asked Questions

I am sometimes paid to speak. Can I use this service to locate paid speaking gigs?

If you´re a paid speaker and you´ve not yet realized the immense value of unpaid speaking to promote your services, then this site is not for you. However, if you have a service or product that can be promoted through free speaking, then you are welcome to use this site to locate free local speaking opportunities.

How do I know that I´m not too inexperienced to speak in public?

If this all feels new and scary, then focus first on gaining experience. This site will help you line up the kind of experience that will serve you best.

Step 1. Look in the tools section of this site.
Step 2. Start with groups that need to fill weekly -- rather than monthly -- slots.
(Being one of their 52 annual speakers is better than being one of their 12).

Am I allowed to sell items in the back of the room, or pitch a paid seminar as a follow-up to the free speech?

The focus of your presentation should be to educate the audience. If you are just planning on doing a sales pitch, don´t waste your time. Free speaking is an opportunity to show off your knowledge and expertise. Focus on giving people value. And if you have a good follow up system (see the resources section of this site) qualified prospects will identify themselves and fill your marketing funnel. If you are planning on pitching a paid seminar during your talk, do it gracefully and have printed materials to do distribute.

How does the rating system work?

The rating system is designed to improve quality and reward both the speaker and the organization for good performance. Good reviews encourage more organizations to book you and more good reviews from organizations attract higher quality speakers. As a member you have the privilege of inviting organizations for whom you´ve spoken in the past to review your performance. After a member organization books you -- and you appear at their event -- an executive member of the organization will be asked to review your performance.

The speakers review is based on 5 categories:

  1. Appearance and professionalism of the speaker
  2. The extent to which the speaker was able to capture the attention of the audience

  3. Did the speaker deliver what was promised in the promotional material?

  4. Value of the content

  5. The extent to which the content was well organized and easy to follow (given the subject matter)

The organizations review is based on:

  1. Prior to the event, communication with the organizer was clear, accurate and organized. (Including how you wanted to be introduced, time, directions, etc.)
  2. Audience demographic and size was accurately represented

  3. The speaker is properly and appropriately introduced to the audience

  4. Timeliness -- The extent to which the meeting ran on time and you were given the time promised

  5. The group was respectful and well mannered

Do I have to sign a contract to be listed in freespeakerbureau.com?
