My Speaking Plans for 2011

Chris Brogan

I’ve been a professional speaker since the latter part of 2006. I’ve had the good fortune of speaking all over the world, in places like New Zealand, Colombia, Sweden, Mexico, and many more. I’ve had the pleasure of addressing large corporate events as well as keynoting industry events. I’ve even made it a priority to get into communities that don’t always get the attention they deserve, as part of my view that the new media and the new marketing revolution won’t take place in New York or LA as much as it will in places seeking a rebirth.

In each venue, I spoke to the audience at hand about the issues that might impact their industry. I gave a unique presentation based on some of my main themes, but with details that related specifically to the industry at hand. Every time, it’s been a pleasure to help others figure out next steps based on what I know mixed with what they know.

In 2011, I’m cutting back my amount of time on the road. My family has been lovely at letting me get out there as often as I have been, but with new company obligations and with my family wanting me home a little more often, I’m going to pull back some of my availability on the road. Here’s how that will work.

Chris Brogan Speaking Availability for 2011

Every month, I will be available for a total of three (3) paid speaking engagements, and (1) industry event (meaning something that pertains to my industry – like BlogWorld Expo). Thus, if you’re holding an event in January, and you’re interested in getting me there, I currently have 2 slots left, as I’ve booked one already. These will be handled first-come, first serve. My fees aren’t very negotiable.

I’d love to see you at such and such an event. In 2011, I’ll be posting my events so that you know where we might be able to meet up. I’m not as likely going to be hitting many smaller events, as my time is very limited and I have commitments to my family and my new business. Just the same, I’ll do my best to see you when I’m near your city.

I’m grateful for every speaking opportunity I receive, and thrilled to meet and share with people wherever I travel. I’m happy to get the chance to see you and give you good ideas. Let’s see what comes of it in 2011.

Thank you!

    what industry events are you attending for the rest of 2010 / can you recommend? (Other than the NML events, if any)

    Cutting back and focusing on fewer things can be so helpful. It’s funny how any open time slot can get filled so quickly. I wish you luck in 2011. Hopefully one of your speaking stops will be SOBCON

    That is an excellent photograph of you Chris, very cool :) That picture could sell your speaking on its own

    You say, “My fees aren’t very negotiable.” In your typical style of openness, can you provide a range?

    Hey Chris, have you been to Norway?

    Kinda wild that 3 paid speaking events and 1 industry event per month is considered cutting back :)

    • http://chrisbrogan.com Chris Brogan

      That’s the problem. I was doing about one every 3 days.

    Glad you are taking some time off the road next year. Besides, it will give the rest of us more speaking opportunities… seriously, you know how many times I have heard ‘oh, you would have been an amazing speaker for us, but we just booked Brogan…’ ;)

    Public speaking is something I am not very good at. There, are some demons I need to put to rest I think. Wishing you all the best.

    Curious, why are you casting smaller events aside?

    Chris, very wise decision! All the best, my friend.

    Good for you. To say yes to something, we have to say no to something else. :) Hard to do but needed.

    I’ve been a speaker for almost three years now. Basically, my sessions talks about educational reformation especially for the undeveloped places most specifically in the Pacific Region. There was this time that I had to inspire teenagers (High School Students) to rehabilitate their library, since of course, my concerns are for uplifting the educational status. Well, you have to take considerations regarding to market or the audience that you are dealing with. You have to think deeper before you let out a speech or tackle a subject.

    I listen your many speeches and I believe N follow your many statements because that statements have worth and I observe many folks are motivated through your speech…
