You don’t need a magic wand to fill your speaking calendar. All you need is laser-focused clarity on the problems you solve, a reliable system you can follow, and a willingness to get a little creative in your approach. Steve Hughes turned an empty calendar at the start of COVID into six figures a year later, and he will be sharing his winning strategies with you in this presentation.

Full Calendar Speaking is a lively, interactive, content-rich program that shows you new and exciting ways to get similar results. If you’ll apply the strategies taught in this program, you will not only get more speaking gigs filled, but you’ll have a green light to position yourself as THE best option for meeting planners to hire. Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned pro looking for a reset, you’ll walk away with practical strategies you can apply right away to get more gigs.

By attending this session, you’ll be able to:

  • Frame your speaking business in ways that distinguish you from the competition.
  • Discover how to naturally build curiosity and expand your opportunities.
  • Find creative ways to get “stage time” outside of conferences and meetings.
  • Set up an “idiot proof” system so that hot leads never grow cold.
  • Make every hour you’re not on a stage more fruitful and effective.​

Mark your calendar and reserve your spot today!
