Friend or Speaker

Someone asked me recently how I get the line-up of speakers I get for some of our leadership events.  The answer is pretty simple:  I am not looking for a speaker – I am looking for a friend!  Speakers can speak anywhere, but friends are selective!  The truth is I can ask anyone to speak.  But I don’t just want anyone.  I want someone that I trust, value and believe will bring the very best to whatever event we are doing.

How do you start this friendship?  You call.  Not rocket science.

CAUTION:  Don’t take advantage of your friends either!  Respect their time/schedule.  Pay them what they deserve.
