About the talk
Getting sponsors requires some upfront work. You need sponsors to get sponsors. Before you have a sponsorship portfolio, book the free jobs—easy to do since most good speakers won’t work for free. This will get you on stage and instantly boost your credibility. After you sign with your first sponsor, you’ve broken the seal and subsequent sponsorships come faster. These companies want to get their brand in front of a targeted audience, and that’s what you give them as a speaker.
