Why Do I Try to Accept Every Speaking Engagement that’s Offered to Me?
Speaking and writing are two of the most professionally rewarding things I do. I really love them both. When I’m in front of a live audience, not only do I get to impart valuable marketing lessons, but I also get to see – firsthand – those special “Ah Ha!” moments that strike like a lightning bolt. As a speaker, there’s nothing more gratifying.
Writing articles and ghostwriting books are equally as satisfying, but in a different way. I can typically reach a much larger audience than I can with speaking. Plus, unlike speaking, any article I write – whether written for a bar publication or other legal publisher – enjoys an extraordinarily long shelf life. I have received feedback from readers, in some cases, years after an article was published. This wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for the Internet.
As a marketer, I realize there are few things more effective in generating business than speaking and writing.
I always do my best to accept every speaking or writing invitation that comes my way. Of course, sometimes conflicts arise and I’m unable to reschedule an obligation that has already been made. But I promise to do my best to accommodate you, your function, your topic and date. As my late father used to say, I wish there were 30 hours in a day!
If you would like me to speak at a convention, meeting, retreat, awards dinner, or for any other function, just send us all the details regarding your event (including budget) and I will do my utmost to free up my schedule. But please understand, there are a limited number of speaking engagements I can do in a year.
What are conference organizers saying about Nader’s presentations? Here’s a small sample:
“After I promoted your topic and qualifications, this was the highest attendance we have had since I have taken over as co-chair. A number of people came up to me after your talk and contacted me over the next several days to tell me how much they enjoyed it.” -Jeffrey Lerman, Esq., Marin County Bar
“I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for helping us to launch our continuing legal education series at the Corporate College. Your nationally renowned presentation: Marketing Your Law Firm Like a Pro…Without Cheapening Your Image was an exceptional catalyst in creating interest and introducing our exciting new product offering to the local market place. The response we have received from the students in your class has far and away been the most positive.

Ulrich, Exec. Director, Corp. College West

As you are aware, presidents of the law societies from all around the world were present and a number of them had contacted me after the session to tell me how much they enjoyed your presentation.” -Alberto Perez Cedillo IBA Chairman Committee 13
