Create a Killer Speaker Showreel that gets you booked – We do it for you!

When Maria started in this business there were very few speakers “on the circuit” but there were clients keen to have experts come and speak to them. It was easy to get booked if you were a speaker. Move forward more than 20 years and there are now so many speakers, it’s really hard for bookers to choose. So you have to give yourself an edge. The best way in my opinion is to have great video – the ideal being a killer showreel.

Serial entrepreneur and best-selling author Sahar Hashemi says:

The great thing about a showreel is that you can control your brand and give exactly the message you want.

We completely agree with this quote. Sahar’s showreel brought her lots of business and helped her to become one of the most booked speakers on our Speaker Bureau roster. She invested in that reel more than 12 years ago and it’s still bringing her business. We are astounded at how many speakers wanting to get bookings don’t have video. And without video how can clients who haven’t seen you speak choose you?

But getting good quality video
is really difficult.

If you’re starting out you don’t have opportunities to be filmed. If you are speaking already and you do manage to get videoed it’s usually been filmed by someone who is filming the event rather than filming you with the sole purpose of creating a reel. That means that the sound might be compromised, the angles are wrong and you aren’t shown at your best.

Let’s say you do manage to get good quality footage, more often than not it’s then not edited with the end client in mind so the clips that are chosen might be chosen because they are funny rather than because they highlight the value you bring and the problems you solve.

In fact a good reel
will attract bookers to you.

A showreel is a great tool for speakers and gives you control. It allows you to choose the best bits and to present yourself in the best way possible to your potential clients. It’s really a video advert.

OK so we’ve established you need one and it’s not easy to get a good one, so we’re going to do it for you.

See the showreels for yourself...
