Happy Spring..... Things are popping up all over- literally and figuratively. I am so encouraged and grateful.Are you seeing signs of new growth and recovery? Tell me- I would love to know.We are seeing bookings across ALL of our clients. Hooray! Virtual bookings mostly, but a smattering of in-person, too - for organizations in Europe, Washington State, Iowa, West Virginia, California and more. We recently added a new client in the Education sector. I am excited to reveal more about this person this week. This speaker is a dynamo- very high energy and a deeply good human. My favorite kind of person.We have also begun a special advisory project with a pair of top notch B-school professors who published a strategy book last month. It is exciting to assist them as they fledge their speaking wings and take flight.Other big news: The portal for the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant opened for applications last Monday. As a government grant program, the required documentation is extensive and the process is a bit overwhelming BUT if we are successful, it will provide a much appreciated infusion to our business after the worst financial year we have ever had.Keep your fingers crossed for us.🤞New Leaf turns 20 in September and I think it could be the perfect time to launch New Leaf 2.0......Would love to revel in YOUR growth and success, too. Spill that tea.....☕☕-Amy#speakermanagement#speakers #speaker #Representation #management #deeplygood #kind #KINDNESS #speakerepresentation ... See MoreSee Less
SPEAKER AS AN ISLAND:An island in the midst of it all.You were born to stand out.It comes naturally to you.People gather at your shores.Admiring.Inspired to dream and maybe rest awhile.Storms blow around you and you remain resolute.Sun shines upon you and you soak it in, feeling the warmth.You don't need an audience, but you welcome one if it gathers.The whole world above you.Yet you are connected underneath the waves to those on the shore.To those on the sea.You are connected.It is all connected.Don't you see?#speakermanagement #speaker#speaking #KINDNESS #kind #giver #adamgrant #speakerrepresentation ...

Joy@Work Wednesdays with client Scott Sonenshein:

Q: Who is Joy at Work perfect for?

A: Someone who needs to move from a mindset of misery to one of peace and......dare we say it? BLISS.



Ahhhhh........ some ideas we can get behind..... Thanks @ScottSonenshein via @chaptersindigo

You are on to something.
Go for it with gusto.
Screw normal.
I will try the idea that terrifies me.
I will be brave.
I will not be embarrassed that I care so much about my clients and how they are doing ...not just about their speaking..but how they are doing overall.

This. Is. Beautiful. Text of the full gorgeous letter is here:

Pioneering free-thinkers welcome...

Baking up some insight on speaking commission strategy....PIE, anyone?
PS: What is your favorite type of pie? Mine: Tie: Warm homemade raspberry with vanilla icecream, or swap in strawberry rhubarb....
