Hello – I facilitate a fitness industry meetup (a group of individuals in or looking to get into the fitness industry) and am looking for an experienced fitness/marketing professional who would be willing to come speak on effective ways to market and differentiate from the competition. This has been an requested topic and we would welcome anyone willing to come share their experience and best practices. It’s a somewhat informal gathering, but the group is eager to learn. It’s not paid, but it’s great exposure for the speaker and their brand/business to new people who are passionate about fitness. If you have any suggestions on how to find someone or know of someone, please let me know! I’ll be looking for speakers on other fitness industry topics as well, so feel free to throw those suggestions in too. We meet in Orange County, CA. Thanks!
Hi Rachael, If your group wishes to learn, it is best to find speakers who have done it not, just talk about it. There is a difference. The fitness industry is very competitive and, many qualified speakers may view your group as future competition. So finding a speaker may not be easy. However, as Janet mentioned above, Fitness Connect is a good place to start. I am sure from there you will get ideas from others. Good luck, Brian Rozzi.
