Business leaders looking to share their expertise and individuals who want to share their passions with Long Island audiences have a new home at Long Island Speakers Bureau (www.longislandspeakersbureau.com) an online hub for Long Island speakers and meeting and event planners at civic and worship organizations, event venues, libraries and corporations. Typically, business leaders and individuals with a story to share spend hours sending out letters to local meeting and event planners requesting an opportunity to speak. These same meeting and event planners are forced to spend hours reviewing differently formatted speaker material or searching online for speakers to serve their needs. To help connect these two groups, Communication Strategy Group, an award-winning brand storytelling agency, and Strategies of Success, a Long Island small business success podcast, have partnered to introduce Long Island Speakers Bureau as a central forum for becoming or locating a speaker. The site is free of charge to use for meeting and event planners who are looking to book their next speaker. Local professionals and individuals who would like to be listed on the site and promoted by the bureau will pay a small fee. Meeting and event planners, as well as speakers, are encouraged to visit: http://bit.ly/go-to-lisb
Long Island Speakers Bureau established three speaker categories to better promote a rich set of speaking talents across a spectrum of topics. The categories correspond to the types of speakers most frequently sought by Long Island meeting and event planners:
- Organizational Speakers – subject matter experts on a wide variety of topics.
- Workshop Speakers – capable of leading training seminars and workshop events.
- Keynote Speakers – who can set the tone and kick-off large meetings and events.
Long Island Speakers Bureau offers a number of promotional services to speakers, including individual speaker profile pages, basic and featured listings on the Long Island Speakers Bureau website, the ability to list multiple speaking topics, a place to share photos, videos and podcasts and much more.
Both speakers and meeting and event planners can subscribe to the monthly newsletter published by Long Island Speakers Bureau which promotes the speakers, upcoming events, interviews with speakers and meeting and event planners, and book reviews of speakers’ books.
In addition, through Communication Strategy Group, Strategies of Success and other partners, speakers and meeting and event planners can access a wide menu of marketing support services including branding, website development, email marketing, video marketing, speaker coaching, speaker agent services and more.
“Long Island Speakers Bureau has been a long-time dream of mine. Through the website, newsletter and other promotional activities we hope to better connect business and individual speakers with meeting and event planners,” says Brian A. Cohen, DTM, Principal and Podcast Host for Strategies of Success radio show.
“Long Island Speakers Bureau is a part of our strategy to help the business community connect through story with their customers and communities,” says Arthur Germain, Principal & Chief Brandteller for Communication Strategy Group.
Long Island Speakers Bureau launches with nearly 50 speakers who can talk on topics ranging from Adventure and Confidence Building to Customer Service and Marketing to Sales Training and Teamwork.
