How to Make a Living Speaking in the Education Market

With Ryan Giffen

Would you like to make a living speaking in the education market? Does the idea of helping educators light you up? If you said, “yes” then you will love our guest on today’s episode of The Speaker Lab!

Ryan Giffen is a booking agent in the education and the university industries. He has booked speakers for several thousand events in his time with the Premiere Speakers Bureau.

Today, we talk through some of the most common events that speakers are hired for in the K-12 and university industries, how to determine who the decision makers are, and why the idea that schools and universities don’t have money for speakers is a myth.
