Do you find your phone weighs 1,000 lbs. when it is time to make outbound marketing calls?  Would you rather take your dog for a walk than make those necessary marketing calls?

OR – Is it possible to take a new list from a new industry – where no one knows you and you have no connections – and turn it into a six-figure speaking business one year later?  Yes, it is, and Lisa Ryan will show you how it’s done!

After spending the first seven years of her speaking career focusing on general human resource (HR) audiences, Lisa wanted to find a niche.  After deciding on manufacturing and the trades (which was in her career background), she set out to work.  Today, she has presented more keynote presentations at national conferences than she ever did as a generalist.

Want to know how it happened?

During this high content, engaging, and FUN session, you will learn the exact process that Lisa used.  Nothing will be held back; any question you have will be answered (as long as we are not against anti-trust laws).

Whether you are an emerging speaker, an established speaker who wants to get better at outbound marketing, or are looking to break into a new market, this program is for you.

By attending this program, you’ll discover:

  • How to affordably create your list of high-potential prospects
  • What to say to prospects in the first several contacts with them
  • How to overcome picking up the “thousand-pound phone”
  • The attitude to reject rejection and keep calling
  • Follow-up strategies to keep top of mind – without being a pest
  • How to use LinkedIn for prospecting
  • How AI can help
  • The power of persistence and why 20 is your new magic number

If you’re willing to put in the effort, you too can build a six-figure speaking business using the strategies you’ll learn in this session.
