'For Speakers'
Section

 

If you are a professional speaker and are interested in being considered for representation by One Step redtri25.jpg (1134 bytes) Beyond WorldWide, please read the following requirements carefully.   One Step Beyond will only consider representing speakers who meet the following criteria:

Topic of Adventure - we specialize in speakers who's  presentations focus on the topic of adventure. As might be expected, this includes many mountain climbers (Everest in Particular) and arctic travelers, but also includes speakers who have been adventurous in many different arenas - expedition cycling and space travel for example.  If your presentation is unrelated to the Topic of Adventure, your materials will be wasted on us.

Experienced Presenters - we typically will only represent those speakers who have proven themselves and are serious about speaking as a career.  This usually means experience of at least twenty-five paid speaking engagements. We expect the utmost in professionalism from our speakers as they are a representing us, as well as we are representing them.

Proper Materials - your materials are the single biggest factor in us booking you presentations! in order to represent you, we require the following materials.  Remember that it is critical that these materials are 'Bureau Friendly' (do not have your contact information on them).  It is also important that we have access to as many of these materials as we require.

  1. Demonstration Video - your demo video is absolutely key in having someone decide to book you as a speaker.  It should be professionally produced, include footage of you actually speaking and represent your message well. Bureau Friendly.

  2. Demo Video available on the Internet - as above, but available over the internet.  For an example (John Amatt), please visit the link on the main page of www.johnamatt.com. Bureau Friendly

  3. One Pager - this piece is important for someone to shortlist you before viewing a demo video or looking at an in-depth brochure. Bureau Friendly.

  4. One Pager as PDF available on the Internet - as above but as Adobe Acrobat PDF format which is convenient for viewing on-line or e-mailing. Bureau Friendly. 

  5. Presentation Brochure - this piece is as important as your demo video in representing you.  It should contain biographical information, presentation content, reference quotations and past client list.  It should be attractive to look at and professionally printed. Bureau Friendly.

  6. Presentation Brochure as PDF available on the Internet - as above but as Adobe Acrobat PDF format which is convenient for viewing on-line or e-mailing. For an example (John Amatt), please visit the link on the main page of www.johnamatt.com. Bureau Friendly.

  7. Press Clippings and Article Reprints - often the best 'objective' information about you, and an excellent source of credibility.  One good article is worth 1,000 paid advertisements. Bureau Friendly.

  8. Press Clippings and Article Reprints as PDF available on the Internet - as above but as Adobe Acrobat PDF format which is convenient for viewing on-line or e-mailing. Bureau Friendly.

  9. Reference Letters - important to establish credibility. Bureau Friendly.

  10. Books and Products - if you have books and products, they are probably your best marketing tools.  We require copies of these items and usually ask that you committ to making additional copies available for promotional purposes upon request.

  11. Bureau Friendly Web-Site - having your own site makes referencing on-line materials and referring clients to easily accessed information makes representation much easier for you and us. Bureau Friendly.

       "Adventure isn't hanging on a rope on the side of a mountain.  Adventure is an ATTITUDE that we must apply to the day-to-day obstacles of life - facing new challenges, seizing new opportunities, testing our resources against the unknown and, in the process, discovering our own unique potential"
