 “If only I could just focus on my speaking instead of all the logistics, my career would really take off.”

As a pro­fes­sion­al speak­er, have you thought that late­ly?

Then you’ve come to the right place!  You real­ize that you just can’t do it all and you need help.  I am cer­ti­fied as a Pro­fes­sion­al Vir­tu­al Speaker’s Assis­tant. I have the skills and knowl­edge to help you take your speak­ing busi­ness to the next lev­el.

Think about how it would it feel to:

    • Have speak­ing engage­ments reg­u­lar­ly com­ing in
    • Not have to deal with trav­el and event logis­tics
    • Have things show up where and when they are sup­posed to when you arrive to speak
    • Get things done with­out too much involve­ment on your part (like main­tain­ing your web­site; social net­work­ing, etc.)
    • Have more time to make more mon­ey?

Get ready to be focused on what YOU do best — shar­ing your mes­sage with your audi­ence.
 
Let your assis­tant han­dle the admin­is­tra­tive and mar­ket­ing details.

 

4 reasons speakers find Speaker’s Assistants invaluable:

1. There is just too much work for one person.

So many new or aspir­ing speak­ers have day jobs and they don’t have the time to do all the tasks involved.

2. A virtual speaker’s assistant can help you ramp up faster.

Look for some­one with train­ing and expe­ri­ence in doing tasks like work­ing with speak­ers bureaus. Trained speaker’s assis­tants under­stand the indus­try, the tech­nol­o­gy and have already estab­lished resources and con­nec­tions.

3. The cost is greater when you do it yourself.

There is a high learn­ing curve for any­one who has nev­er made the jour­ney of a pro­fes­sion­al speak­er. Whether the speak­er is paid $5,000 per speech or $270 an hour as a coach, ther­a­pist, attor­ney or entre­pre­neur, the speaker’s assis­tant is a tremen­dous val­ue at a much low­er per-hour cost. With a speaker’s assis­tant the speak­er has the free­dom to con­cen­trate on those things only the speak­er can do, espe­cial­ly writ­ing the best speech he or she can.

4. There is synergy in a collaborative effort.

If you set the timetable, bud­get, and your inten­tions, the speaker’s assis­tant will be there to sup­port you and give you the con­fi­dence that you are head­ing in the right direc­tion.

So you see — hav­ing the sup­port of a good assis­tant can increase your pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, effi­cien­cy and there­fore help you earn even more mon­ey.

As your assis­tant, I am your ally and part­ner, giv­ing you more time to trav­el, speak and write and do what you do best while I take care of the logis­tics and back office admin­is­tra­tive needs.  I’ve got your back — and you’ve got more time.

I was lucky to con­nect with Karen at Sound Sup­port when I need­ed admin­is­tra­tive assis­tance. She’s been great to work with. She’s orga­nized and both detail and dead­line ori­ent­ed. She was also will­ing to learn how to use eSpeak­ers and helped me cus­tomize the pro­gram for my needs. She’s a valu­able addi­tion to my team and I high­ly rec­om­mend her.
