Speaking Opportunities

Sometimes there’s no substitute for face to face.

The foundation of good PR is getting the right message in front of the right audience. Sometimes that means making a splash at conferences and events.

Elevating your executives and customers as speakers at key industry trade shows, conferences and seminars delivers a strong testimonial to the value of your company's products and services.

Walker Sands places you in front of the key audiences in your industry. We work with you at every stage of the game, from assembling a who's-who of industry experts for a panel discussion to polishing up a keynote deck.

With our comprehensive approach, we take the heavy lifting off your plate by:

  • Researching Opportunities. We develop an ongoing calendar of possible speaking opportunities that fit your strategic objectives. We draw upon our relationships with leading conference and trade show companies to improve your chances of securing a spot.
  • Submitting Proposals. When we find an appropriate speaking opportunity, we write and pitch winning abstracts and submit them as presentation proposals.
  • Preparing Presentations. We work with you to write your speech and perfect your presentation materials. We coach speakers on their presentation skills and we ensure that your delivery will be as high-impact as possible.

Whether it’s a major international conference or a regional trade show, Walker Sands will help you identify and pursue the events where you’ll see the strongest return on your investment.
