Your professional speaker biography is to help tell the audience your story.
It should include:
- your background
- your experience and credentials
- where they can find you and find out more
- topics you speak on.
How to use your printables:
- Start by pulling out your existing resources, this might be your elevator pitch or about me page on your blog or website. It might be testimonials and recommendations that you have collected.
- Do your research. I recommend researching other speaker profiles and bios. If you are speaking at a particular event (or series of events) check out last year’s programme. It also doesn’t hurt to look at speakers outside your industry or that you admire and highlight bits that you like or that stand out to you.
- Pull the two things together and draft both a long and short bio to use at events. You should craft a new bio for each event. Once written your bio should form part of your personal marketing toolkit and your speaking engagements toolkit.
Other variations of this Bio that you could use these for might be a Pitch Bio, Press Release Bio or Guest Post Bio.
