Talk Travel To Me

With Dan Irvin

This week on Talk Speaker To Me, TSL Resident Speaker Dan Irvin is sharing everything you need to know about how to plan for successful travel as a speaker.

Dan digs into:

  • When should you travel
  • Who pays for travel
  • How to plan travel with peace of mind in mind
  • What and when to pack
  • How to organize your travel and gigs
