Become an Established Expert by Publishing a Book or Speaking at Industry Events

Experts and Thought Leaders maintain a full time professional schedules and then are asked to share their knowledge and insight by writing articles or giving speeches. The business of writing articles, blogs, and books or giving presentations to colleagues and other professionals is far different than an expert’s  day-to-day environment.
New and seasoned authors and speakers have always relied on specialists to handle all the administrative and professional duties that go along with the writing and speaking professions.
As a certified Professional Author’s Assistant and Speaker’s Assistant, I have the skills and knowledge to help you with a few tasks or manage the whole process. What type of tasks would you like help in?
  • There is synergy in a collaborative effort.
  • The time from manuscript completion to book publication or speech concept to standing on the stage is much shorter with support.
  • Conducting outreach to conference planners and bloggers with interest in your topic, whether a project or book, and opportunities to speak at meetings and conferences about your topic takes both time and instinct. Let us talk with you about your goals and plans in these areas.
