What is The Process Like?
It’s easy to sign up to become a speaker or coach at the international Network of Speakers and Coaches. Fill out the form and information for your personal and customizable profile and you’re on your way to gaining the visibility you need to grow your speaking or coaching career!
1. As a Speaker or Coach, may I work with more than one network or bureau?
As long as you do not have an exclusive contract with an agency or bureau, you are free to do business with anyone you wish. As a member of the International Network of Speakers & Coaches, you are free to join other non-exclusive networks and bureaus as well.
2. What is the difference between a speakers bureau and an agency?
A speakers bureau typically books speakers that are available to work with any bureau. An agency, often, only books those speakers that are exclusively contracted with that agency. As a Network of Coaches and Speakers, we are here to promote your work, display your experience and elevate your profile. We do not book your events, all speaking and coaching opportunities will come directly to you.
3. How much should a speaker charge for their presentations?
Honorariums are impacted by both the experience of the speaker and the budget of the hiring organization. If you’re just starting out, your time and expertise is worth something so you shouldn’t do too many for free unless you’re utilizing platforms to promote your brand. industry thought leaders will always be able to charge more than those who may not have been published or known entities yet. The bottom line is, your rates will range from free to thousands as you’re just beginning. A known expert in their field, a nationally known thought leader, will earn upwards of $5000 and beyond per event.
4. I am a coach and a speaker. Can I be listed as both in the network?
Yes, If you are both a speaker and a coach, we want you to maximize your visibility as much as possible. You can select coach, speaker, or both when filling out your member profile.
