Trying to raise sponsorship for your event or trade show. Here are few value added services that the speaker can provide that might help you with your next big sponsor! (by Angela Cox-Weston, Midwest Speakers Bureau, Inc)
1) Ask if the speaker does consulting. As part of the sponsorship include a 1- 2 hour consulting session via conference call between the speaker and the Board of Directors or top management.
2) If the sponsor is located in the same city as the event, see if the speaker will include an additional program for your sponsor at their location.
3) If you have a trade show, have the speaker sign books at your sponsor’s booth.
4) Purchase the speaker’s book and include a book plate inside the book with the speakers autograph and the logo of your sponsor.
