Heating up the cold call

Fellow speaker,

Professional speaker Judy Carter suggests you and a friend follow these steps when cold-calling an organization:
  1. Find an organization where you have a personal connection
  2. Find out when the organization's next meeting is
  3. Identify the person who books speakers for meetings
  4. Let the speaker booker know who referred you and/or your association with the group
  5. Ask about upcoming events which need speakers on the subject you talk about
  6. If they don't ask for a referral
  7. If they have an event, ask to send them your press kit
  8. Ask if they prefer phone or email in communications
  9. Get a time to speak with them again
