Believe me, I know how tempting it is to send out your speaker pitches as soon as they come to mind, but that’s not the best way to go about it.
Last week I shared all about my speaker brainstorming process that I use to strategically determine which potential speakers to reach out to, but there are still a few more steps to go before sending out those speaker pitches.
When it’s time to pitch your summit speakers, which approach do you take?
Welcome to the first part of our new behind-the-scenes series where you can come along with me as I plan for the 6th round of my original virtual summit. Instead of throwing a bunch of strategies at you each week, like I normally do, I'll walk you through everything that I've been doing in my summit planning process and make it actionable in the process.

If you've ever doubted that B2C summits can work and make an impact, this one's for you.
This week we're talking...
You probably hear about more Business-to-Business (B2B) summits because you're a business owner. But that doesn't mean that Business-to-Consumer (B2C) summits aren't happening, or that they're not creating powerful transformations for the hosts, speakers, and attendees.

Networking can have a big impact on the growth and reach of your virtual summit.
That's because, having connections to reach out to when summit planning makes the entire process flow more smoothly, specifically when it comes to creating your speaker lineup.
