Attention authors, speakers and others who are experts on topics such as leadership, being successful in and out of school, relationships and dating, overcoming challenges, alcohol awareness and drug prevention.
Stop grumbling about not booking enough speaking engagements. Right now, in thousands of colleges and universities, there’s a group of people in a position to hire you to speak on those topics. But you probably never knew they existed.
They’re called Students of Disabilities Coordinators, and they bring in speakers with and without disabilities to speak to only students with disabilities. The talks can relate to any of the topics I just mentioned, or other topics that you think would be a good fit for that audience.
Problem is, so few speakers are even aware that such a group exists or that they have healthy budgets to pay for talks, lectures and training sessions. Instead, most speakers are all going after the same corporate, trade association and nonprofit meeting planners who everybody else is calling. And they overlook this small audience of coordinators, some of whom have money from state and federal grants to pay you.
The Students of Disabilities Coordinators, like other types of program coordinators at colleges, often change schools and will hire you again if you’re easy to work with and if they like your talk.
James Malinchak, “The King of the College Speaking Market,” has identified 16 other types of key people who book speakers for student leadership gatherings, student government events, lectures sponsored by fraternities and sororities, career and job fairs, commencements and graduations, student conferences and summer programs. Add to the list academic, athletic and club events, and other meetings where an “outside” expert is needed. Get his complimentary special report at http://tinyurl.com/rcbs4
