One of the best venues for any speaker is to create a platform. The platform can be of many different styles.
My favorite platform is to create an entire venue based around a theme. The theme could be based on entrepreneurs, Law of Attraction, Speaking, Sales, etc. But what makes it work is to involve at least six additional speakers to help with the promotions of the event and getting the seats in the seats.
One event I’ve been working on for quite some time is the 1 Day MBA. There are 15 speakers involved and it’s produced over two days. The undergraduate work of identifying the right attitude for being an entrepreneur and the second day is for improving the actual skills of business owners.
When speaking at an event where there are multiple speakers it takes the pressure off the individual speaker. The combination of attendees from each of the speaker’s contacts makes it possible for each of the speakers to expand their contact and client base.
The promotions of the event are shared among each of the speakers and that makes it possible to multiply the number who are exposed to the event as well.
It is actually one of my favorite speaking venues. I love the idea of gaining exposure to an audience who is made of up about 95% of individuals who I would not normally even have a chance to meet.
