Katrina Mitchell, CEO and Chief Match Maker of SPEAK! Franchise Speakers

Overnight the way that we come together, communicate, educate, inform, inspire and excite our teams has radically changed.  As the only speakers bureau to focus on the needs of the franchise community, SPEAK! continues to curate a select group of speakers, trainers and virtual moderators who truly understand the nuances of engaging audiences remotely in the context of the franchise relationship. Virtual is not taking a live keynote and streaming it.  Virtual delivery must be dynamic, interactive, concise and fast paced to win (and keep!) attendees undivided attention in the midst of the melee of possible remote distraction.  Whether planning a Virtual or Live Event, SPEAK! promises to make the speaker selection process FUN, EASY & STRESS FREE. Our client satisfaction ratings are consistently off the charts. We know the franchise world.  It’s all we do!

Everything here is offered freely. Please utilize the ideas and clips in any way that is helpful to you. Circulate among your leadership teams, your staff, your franchisees or send it system-wide.
