  • What is the first step to booking Dr. Brandi?
    STEP 1- Complete the Speaker Request Form & Await Approval In order for your event to be formally considered among other inquiries that we receive, you will be required to complete our official speaker request form. Requests are reviewed on a rolling basis, and our team typically responds within 2-3 business days. In some cases, we are not able to accommodate speaking requests. If that applies to your event, we will send you a "rejection" letter explaining why Dr. Brandi is unable to participate. If the rejection is due to a scheduling conflict, and your event day/time is flexible, simply respond to that email with an alternate day/time and we will work to secure the new day/time on Dr. Brandi's calendar. ​ ​
  • What happens after our event is approved?
    STEP 2- Schedule a Pre-Event Planning Meeting with Dr. Brandi Dr. Brandi has never facilitated a speaking engagement the same way twice. She does not have "canned" content and is committed to tailoring your topic to fit the purpose, energy, and tenor of your event. During the pre-planning meeting you will be able to review any relevant information that will help Dr. Brandi customize the presentation for your audience. ​ STEP 3- Get Access to Dr. Brandi's Full Bio, Marketing Assets, & Docs You will receive access to all of the marketing assets, bios, and important documents that your team will need in preparation for the event. You will also be able to upload documents that you'd like our team to have access to (Ex. event marketing image etc.). ​ STEP 4- Finalize Event Logistics & Send Over Presentation Deck(s) 1-Week Prior to Event One week prior to the event, we will conduct a final review of the event logistics, and contact you if we're missing anything like webinar links, travel information etc. If Dr. Brandi is using a presentation deck for your event, we will send that to you as well. Please note, that presentation decks cannot be sent over more than 1-week prior to your event. STEP 5- Enjoy an AMAZING Event Experience & Share Event Feedback with the Team After your event concludes, you may opt to do a quick debrief on-the-spot, or send over any feedback that you have. Many of our event hosts simply send us an email that says "Thank you Dr. Brandi, that was great!". Of course, we'd love it if happy clients can leave Dr. Brandi a LinkedIn recommendation to continue to support her impact. * Pricing and fees are discussed in the following section.
  • What are Dr. Brandi's fees? How does pricing work?
