How to Turn the Last 5 Minutes of Your Talk into a Calendar Full of Speaking Engagements 
12:00pm - 1:00pm 
Presented by Arel Moodie

As a professional speaker you want to make it easy to book more speaking engagements so you can focus on what you love; sharing your message to impact lives. 

But let's be honest, most speakers do a HORRIBLE job collecting any data to prove the effectiveness of our talks. 

What if you could easily (I mean ridiculously easily) put up one QR at the end of your talk that would instantly 

  • Collect data of how effective your talk actually is
  • Have that data instantly turned into a beautifully visual report
  • Easily get testimonials without having to ask for them
  • Build your email list 

AND pull speaking leads from every audience you speak to

  • WHILE automating your follow up?!?!?!?!

What if every time you spoke you could build incredible momentum in booking your next talks and best yet all of the work was done for you?

If you are intrigued by this, I encourage you to join us on Thursday (2/16) @ 12pm EST because we will be breaking down a strategy that will help you do this that most speakers don't know about. 

You can use this to get rebooked, booked in cold markets who don't know you yet, or go deeper in your current client vertical. 

Register now to reserve your spot for this really special training that will guarantee you a leg up on all other speakers.

Arel Moodie is a best-selling author and professional speaker who has spoken in 48 states and 5 countries to over 750,000 people while generating millions of dollars from his s

peaking business. Arel leveraged his speaking business to become a Disney+ host of Family Reboot produced by Kelly Rippa.
