It’s not enough to
throw together a PowerPoint, give a speech, and see what happens.Jeremy Eskenazi leads the specialized Human Resources
consulting firm, Riviera Advisors. Riviera Advisors works with organizations
around the world to improve and optimize their own recruiting and staffing
capabilities. For the past twelve years, outside of referrals from current and
past clients and colleagues, speaking to targeted groups is the number one
avenue for building new business relationships at Riviera Advisors. Jeremy and
his team have developed a very specific strategy leveraging paid and unpaid
speaking engagements. Come join a facilitated discussion and participate in the
conversation while Jeremy shares some of his speaking strategies including:
- Identifying speaking opportunities that will
ensure the right audiences.
- Creating sought-after content that can be reused
- Giving away speakers notes, tools, and templates
and other free stuff to audiences, in return for the opportunity to gather
contacts and build communities.
- Engaging audiences at conferences and expos using
speaking add-ons such as invitation-only dinners, book signings, and exhibits.
- Facilitating panels and interviews to get
- Producing public events to own the conversation
and the relationships.
and unpaid speaking engagements can be very lucrative for consultants, but
there must be a strategy on how to actively mine the contacts and the
relationships from the audiences and eventually turn those contacts into
business. Come join this discussion to learn how.
