Saturday December 9 – Pre-Convention Boot Camp – Supersize Your Business!
Immeasurable value from exceptional people – including YOU!
What most of us LOVE about the speaking business is that there are multiple ways to grow and sustain a healthy business.
What most of us HATE about the speaking business is that there are multiple ways to…..Hey, wait a second….
Whew, this is all so overwhelming. So many choices! How do you know which model is right for you?
You now have the CAPS Pre-Convention Bootcamp to help you answer that question.
Whether you are making $1,000, $100,000, $1,000,000 — or more — if you want to grow your business quickly, join us at Pre-Convention to learn from five very successful speakers who have used some unique – and some tried-and-true – strategies to radically grow their businesses.
From building an online empire, to turning social media followers into customers, to the strategies behind signing million-dollar contracts (yes, million-dollar contracts – with ONE client!), and much more, listen as these experts open up their toolboxes to share how they did it!
Success is replicable, so why not leverage what they know so YOUR business can grow?
We have developed two half-day session that will feature five individuals who have built successful businesses in five very different ways – and who continue to grow their businesses in unique and innovative ways. And they’re excited to share their business models with you, so you can cut through the confusion and do what works.
YOUR EVENT HOST
Michelle Cederberg, CSP, is a speaker, author, coach, and consultant who helps organizations increase productivity and effectiveness by cultivating energized and engaged employees (say that six times fast). She has been a Professional Member of CAPS since she joined in 2001, and she credits this organization (and coaching from individuals in it – including some on this panel) with teaching her how to build her part-time passion into a successful full-time speaking career that is now in its 12th year. Michelle will facilitate the pre-convention sessions, adding her unique brand of humour, and rally cries to just #DTFW.
The morning session will feature speakers who have reached – and continue to dominate – the million-dollar level, in a variety innovative ways.
Martin Latulippe, CSP, HoF, has grown his speaking business to a Global Practice of over $3 million a year. Martin will share his techniques for building an online empire that puts you in the spotlight.
Greg Schinkel, CSP holds the CAPS record for the highest number of million dollar+ contracts (yes single contracts) ever signed by a single speaker. Greg will share how you can build a training and business empire that puts your business in the spotlight, and helps you fund your retirement.
Janet Stewart, is unique because she dominates a small, obscure niche market with large contracts and all encompassing programs. She only takes on a few clients a year – ones who are already thriving – and accelerates their success, and she currently has an 18-month waiting list. Her unique approach has helped her build a million dollar business. Janet will share how you can reduce your sales labour by creating customers for life.

Jane guides her clients to think bigger and bolder in business. She provides them with tools to run an effective business, so they can earn more money and live a secure, fun, and adventurous lifestyle. And with 25 years in the business of speaking, she knows what works!. Jane is the author of The Wealthy Speaker 2.0 and The Epic Keynote.

And she’ll show you how to leverage social media by turning connections into paying customers.
