Busy speakers monitor a mountain of information that makes up the “back room” of a speaking operation. We will cover finding and responding to requests for proposals; finding local speaking gigs; staying on top of requests for our speaking services; keeping track of the status of proposals; managing information so we meet deadlines, show up at the right place and time with the right equipment, and present ourselves as capable professionals; setting fees and charging for expenses, and developing fresh topics that will keep the demand up for our presentations.

Annette Burke Lyttle owns Heritage Detective, LLC, providing professional genealogical services in research, education, and writing. She speaks on a variety of genealogical topics from the international to the local level and loves helping people uncover and share their family stories. Annette leads Best Practices Study Groups for a number of organizations, providing in-depth education on the genealogical research process in an interactive setting.
