Navigating toward the “new normal” in the speaking world is proving to be a large learning curve for all of us.  On this episode of The Wealthy Speaker Show, I have invited 2 of my long-term friends and veterans of booking speakers for large scale meetings to join me.  Today I am thrilled to welcome Diane Goodman and Kris Young to share their thoughts on what meetings in the future may look like and how to make yourself more “sellable” to the speakers bureaus.

Diane is the founder of Goodman Speakers Bureau and brings her 30+ years of experience and vast industry knowledge to every team she works with. Her clients trust her expertise and guidance when selecting the right speaker.

Kris has had a more diverse path in the speaking industry and is currently working as the VP of Speakers and Entertainers for Heroic Productions.  She also has 30+ years of experience in the speaking industry and has worn many hats making her a great addition to this discussion with well-rounded insights to share.
