Or put differently: ‘Why do Event Companies and Event Organisers try to incorrectly bypass Speakers Agencies’?
Most event companies believe they’ll get a better deal and can make more money going directly to the speaker. This is not true with here at ProMotivate. It is, however, true with many of our competitors.
Let’s ask again; ‘Why do Event & Conference Organisers work with ProMotivate?’
Answer – ProMotivate has an agreement with all its speakers that the rate that we quote is the same direct rate the speaker quotes themselves. We often have licence to negotiate lower fees for our speakers which they themselves are uncomfortable doing.
If you are organising events and bring ProMotivate the opportunity we reward or reduce the speakers fee (at cost to us, not our speaker) to reflect that we have not had to develop the initial sales opportunity. But do also take into account we are bombarded by event companies involved in competitive pitches to win the rights to produce and manage the entire conference.
We’re far more responsive when we are working on realistic opportunities. Whilst the speaker provision is only a small part of the wider event pitch, the quality of the speakers included in a proposal stands out and we can really add value by recommending leading qualified speakers which will improve the chances of winning the project.
