Give yourself the best chance to get paid speaking gigs by having a Killer Speaker Showreel. Killer because you’ll have not only top quality video and audio but the expertise of a team of bookers working on your reel, who know exactly what other bookers need to see in order to choose you over the competition. We will create not one but three videos for you, your showreel, a TED style talk and an 'about me' video. The Showreel Day is run by MARIA FRANZONI AND MARY TILLSON FROM MARIA FRANZONI LTD, in collaboration with NEIL ARMSTRONG FILMS.
My showreel was put forward by a Speaker Agency I’ve not worked with before, to XXXXXX to support their staff with Resilience and Performance. I got the gig, undoubtedly because of the showreel….. Well since that session the client booked me for 3 more gigs in the same month, which would all have come from the showreel getting me over the line. Charlie Cannon
If you want clients to choose you make it easy for them to do so, give them great video. Video that will show them the quality of content you can deliver and give them certainty that you are the right speaker for the job. And make it top quality.
On our showreel day we are going to create not just one video for you but three:
- A TED style videos for clients who want to see a full short speech
- An 'about me' video – where you tell clients who you are and why you are the right person for them
- A stand-alone killer showreel that will give a client everything they need to know to book you
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?
