Save the Date for Special Workshop on October 20th with Ed Rigsbee

The key to profitability and longevity in the speaking business is to access corporations through trade associations and professional societies; done right, it’s like getting paid to showcase before potential clients! Even better is that you can take control of your speaking career without ever having to rely on bureaus.

To do that you need to get to the decision maker, which isn’t always easy. At a recent SAH meeting there was a discussion on the frustration over not getting past those who answer the phone for the decision maker: the gatekeepers who tell you they’ll take a message and then no one ever calls back.

WE HAVE THE SOLUTION!  The Speakers Association of Hawaii sponsored Selling To Associations Super Intensive by Ed Rigsbee.  At Ed’s Selling To Associations, he will show you the Martial Art of getting booked through bypassing the gatekeeper and connecting with the real decision makers.

Ed Rigsbee, Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), Certified Association Executive (CAE), is regarded as the number one expert in selling to associations and at this amazing workshop will waste no time and draw you a straight line to the money. You will learn how to do an end-run around the gatekeeper and get to the decision maker to secure engagements.

Last year’s event was a smashing success that increased revenue for those who applied what Ed taught; and this year is going to be even better as Ed has revised the previous content and added in new information including developing and defining your speaker value proposition.  Every speaker needs a positioning strategy and statement, but no two speakers are alike. Positioning is something that is unique to only one person and Ed will outline an approach to help each of the speakers in attendance find their authentic positioning strategy.

PLUS, all SAH Members who attend will get access to Ed’s online “Selling to Association” resources; including Videos, MP3s, selling scripts, and much more!  This is a $300 value, free to all SAH members who attend this event.  If you are not an SAH member and want the discounted rate and access to Ed’s online resources you can simply join the SAH on our website ( At only $75.00 per year and all of the additional benefits of SAH membership this is a super deal!
