I spend much of my time as a motivational speaker traveling to my jobs. I love traveling the country and even the world to deliver speeches to diverse audiences from a wide array of industries. But one of my favorite places to work is in my home state of Colorado.
Why? I’m not saying I don’t love airline food, full body scans, and lost baggage. I’m just saying that working locally has its charms. Lots of charms.
A huge portion of my client’s expense when hiring pro speakers is the travel expense. They pay for hotel, air tickets, airport parking and even food. Hiring a local speaker means an instant discount: no travel expense. It’s easily a 10% savings.
I speak regularly at the Colorado Convention Center, nearby resorts such as the Broadmoor and the Gaylord Rockies and at mountain resorts in Vail, Beavercreek, and Keystone. Clients who hired me for these gigs have enjoyed a substantial savings.
