My name is Karen Donaldson, your partner in crime, ready to arm you with exactly what you need, so that you can position yourself to have a successful and lucrative speaking business; land the right speaking gigs and clients.

I’m a no fluff type of coach. I absolutely love speaking, love helping entrepreneurs confidently bring their authentic voice to the stage, love helping experts get booked and acquire clients through speaking and last but not least, I love helping experts get paid their worth.

I have been speaking for over 20 years, coaching for over 7 years and am in love with my life and the people that I’m blessed to work with. You may be asking why are you speaking about this????

Allow me to share with you, outside of speaking I have coached experts speakers all over the world, most important I work closely with conference coordinators across Europe and North America because need to know exactly what they are looking for so my clients and I can continue to get booked and paid. That’s exactly what I’m revealing in this Free report.

Now, because I like to be transparent…I will tell you like it is. At the end of this cheat sheet I WILL offer you something for FREE.

However, this is only for those of you who want to fast track things, make it happen now, get BOOKED and PAID in the next 30 DAYS.

Now, let’s get to what you came here for.

MUST HAVE SPEAKER MATERIALS….if your intention is to get

noticed and booked.

  • Speaker 1 pager
  • Presentation/keynote summary
  • Presentation/keynote abstract
  • 3 learning objectives
  • Length of talk
  • Testimonials
  • Partial client list
  • References with name and phone numbers with past locations you have spoken at
  • Video reel or video clips of you speaking
  • Speaker Media Kit (not essential if you are just starting out)


What You Must Know And Have In Place Before You Reach Out To Get Booked.

  • Clarity on exactly who you speak to; your target audience
  • Powerful positioning, your ONE area of expertise
  • Clear and Powerful Promise statement
  • Clarity on what challenge you help your target audience with, what you specifically can help them with.
  • Clarity on what results you can help your target audience achieve.

How To Properly Reach Out To Event Coordinators And Get Booked.

  • Personalize each proposal before you submit it. (specific name of conference, specific person it is addressed to.)
  • Make sure you and your topic are a fit for your conference before you submit your speaker proposal.
  • Send them exactly what they ask for in the format that they ask for it in.
  • Don’t add attachments but leave links to where they can find your materials.
  • Know what raises a red flag and gets you deleted and don’t do it.
  • Leave links to your “professional” social media accounts you want them to visit.

Everything that you have read above in the checklist is exactly what we as speaker must have in place to succeed and build strong speaking business.
