[CALL OR TEXT 512-750-6339 or Email firstname.lastname@example.org]
As one speakers’ bureau owner said, “Billy Riggs is the best value for the money in the speaking industry!”
No one offers more for your conference or training budget.
2. A guaranteed smash hit! Hundreds of standing ovations in all 50 states attest that your people will go wild over his program.
3. Incredibly fast response times. Emails are usually answered within a few minutes and in great detail. All needed materials are available on our website, including AV needs, downloadable photos, introductions, and bio.
4. Billy Riggs answers his own phone almost anytime, day or night, 365 days per year. Unless he’s onstage, you’ll be able to ask him any question and get an immediate answer. On the rare occasions when he’s unavailable to answer, voicemails will be returned at the earliest possible opportunity.
5. One fixed low price, regardless of the length of the presentation. Whether you want a half-day training, or a 45 minute keynote and 2 breakouts, the one low price remains unchanged (assuming they all take place on the same day).
6. Experience you can trust. 25 years as one of the pre-eminent educational entertainers in America means you can relax and know that every detail or potential challenge has been fully accounted for.
7. A wide variety of topics. Whether your group is made up of salespeople, supervisors, CEOs, or frontline customer service providers, Billy has a message that is relevant and powerful.
8. Absolute professionalism. You can book Billy Riggs knowing that he will be on time, polite, and kind. He doesn’t drink, smoke, use foul language, or flirt with conference attendees. He chats openly and graciously with anyone who wants to talk.
9. Squeaky-clean presentations. There is no off-color material in any of Billy’s presentations. Not even close.
10. Reliability. Over a quarter of a century, Billy has never missed a presentation. Several times he has driven all night (after an airport was closed due to a snowstorm, for example) to fulfill his obligations. He always arrives. Other speakers may cancel to avoid the hassle. Billy never does.
11. There’s not a prima donna cell in Billy’s body. He comes to serve you and your people with a joyful heart and a great attitude. He and his staff are remarkably easy to work with.
12. Frugality with your travel budget. Billy never flies first class or books expensive hotels or eats pricey meals at his clients’ expense. He gets the lowest airfare available (for reasonable itineraries) and never spends more than $15 on a meal (or, if he does, he only bills for $15). Or, we can build expenses into the fee, or cap them if you prefer.
13. Flexible payment terms. You may pay by check, electronic transfer, Paypal, or credit card, and take up to 30 days after his program to pay, if you need to. We prefer a 10% up-front deposit, but even this may be waived upon request.
14. Billy’s presentations NEVER run over their designated time. He keeps a clock onstage and adjusts his program on the fly to be certain he ends within 60 seconds of his appointed time or assigned length (you choose).
15. Easy-peasy contracts. Billy’s contracts* are one page long. No legal jargon, no loopholes, no wasted afternoons reading page after page of fine print. Just a simple agreement between honorable people.
“Keynote programs that
are the most fun, practical and inspiring you’ve ever experienced, of any length, for one low price.”
