Episode 120: Speaker Management & Deal-Making Pivots with Li Hayes

Released Wednesday, 12th May 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
Li Hayes is a returning guest (you can listen in to her previous episode, From Concept to Oscars: Overcoming Barriers to Entry in a New Industry, right here). Li is a phenomenal entrepreneur, television host, speaker’s agent, and inventor. After two decades in the corporate world, she summoned the courage to take the entrepreneurial plunge! She started by founding Go Leeward Speaker Management. Li works with associations, masterminds, corporations and more to help them make their events wildly successful. Her invention, the Cool Me scarf, helps to discreetly relieve hot flash symptoms for women dealing with menopause. (It was featured at the Oscars After party!)

Li noted that one major deal-making shift they went through in speaker management was brokering deals with the long-term in mind. For example, a speaker might be willing to offer a deeply discounted speaking engagement virtually now, in exchange for an opportunity to be the featured keynote speaker at the next live event when things opened back up. In this way, they were able to leverage both current and future opportunities.

There were incredible insights on this episode -- it’s a must listen!
