Every year over 5,000 leaders from the association community gather at the crown jewel of association educational events – The American Society of Association Executives Annual Meeting. This year the ASAE Annual Meeting and Exposition will take place from August 8-11 in Detroit, MI. As you can imagine the competition among speaker bureaus and speaker management firms to place their speakers in front of this vibrant and energetic leadership group is fierce. ASAE can have their pick of just about any speaker on the circuit – to be selected as a General Session or Game Changer speaker is a great honor that typically leads to recognition and, frankly, an uptick in business within the association community.

A “spin-off” speech for an ASAE-member association and meeting attendee often leads to multiple engagements from corporate groups further down the line. There really is no way to determine the link between the actuarial value of being selected to speak at an ASAE meeting and then delivering a successful speech, but for many speakers it can result in a seven-figure speaking income. The majority of the speakers on our list of the “10 Most Booked Speakers” have addressed previous ASAE meetings throughout the years.

The Speaker Experts do a great deal of work with two Detroit natives who have been selected to speak at the 2015 ASAE Annual Meeting and Exposition:

General Session : Josh Linkner

Tech Entrepreneur and Bestselling Author of “The Road to Reinvention” and “Disciplined Dreaming”

Game Changer : Sheryl Connelly

The Speaker Experts suggest that you reach out to your speaker bureau of choice prior to the ASAE meeting to find out more about these thought leaders’ availability and background. Followers of this blog know we are not fans of the “hold” process but in this case it might make sense to get a date “on hold” prior to the meeting as we believe the fees and demand for these speakers will be going up.
