๐Ÿ“ข Want Me To Talk At Your Event?

Ahmad AwaisAhmad Awais

๐Ÿ‘‹ Hi, I am Ahmad Awais!

I love public speaking โ€“ so much that I’ve spent most of the last five years on the road (with an average of 33 conferences/meetups/seminars a year).

I am also a very busy man (yes, my Twitter stream might make you think otherwise, but I am not kidding) and I am getting roughly 200-300 emails a day and about an offer to speak each week. This is not boasting, I am happy that people want me to speak, and I donโ€™t want to disappoint anyone.

๐Ÿ™Œ If youโ€™d like me to speak at your event send me an email with the subject [Speaking Opportunity]. Please include the following:

All this is a lot of work, and beyond what is generally considered practice for presenters. Therefore I expect professional treatment by the conference organizers the same way I am professional about this.

Some of these are negotiable and depend on the nature of your event. For example, I am fine to cover my own travel expenses for a single track, independent, not-for-profit event, but I donโ€™t see a point in doing the same for a commercial multi-track conference with a high price tag on the ticket. If you make money, it is just fair to share the load. I go above and beyond my call of duty as a presenter and Iโ€™d like to see this being appreciated.

Deal breakers#

I am an agreeable person when it comes to supporting events, but there are a few things I am not happy about:

๐ŸŽฏ If you’ve read this, I am super glad we understand each other better. Now let’s get down to the business โ€” send me an email.

Peace! โœŒ๏ธ
