SW 263 - FBF - Making a $1 Million Speaking Empire with 2010's Speaker Coach of the Year Dustin Mathews
This weeks Flash Back Friday takes us to Episode #31.
Jason Hartman interviews Dustin Mathews, Chief Marketing Officer for 7 Figure Speaking Empire, 2010 Speaker Coach Of The Year and 2010 Infusionsoft’s Marketer of The Year Finalist, about how to properly start a profitable speaking career.
Dustin has managed and marketed hunders of events, seminars and boot camps, sometimes generating over $12 million dollars in a year. Dustin prides himself on transforming a new, green speaker into a beloved, sought after speaker. He's also the author of How To Get Rich Working For FREE, and Secrets of the Real Estate Millionaires.
The fundamentals of being a successful speaker haven't changed: impeccable credibility, social proof, engaging stories that impact the sale, an enticing offer, these are all needed. What HAS changed is the mindset of your audience. And if you don't understand how the mindset has changed, you're not going to get through to them, and you won't be successful.
So if you're getting lower conversion and sales rates than you have before, it's likely because you're using old, dated strategies and techniques. The formula for profitable speaking is different now, and you have to understand it to further your career. Listen in as Jason and Dustin go over the NEW way you need to be addressing your audience to make your listeners your customers.

Kevin Jans is the President and Founder of Skyway Acquisition Solutions (“Skyway”). After 16 years as a Department of Defense contracting officer, he founded Skyway to help companies navigate the increasingly complex process of competing for Federal contracts. Kevin built the company on the premise that no one knows the Federal acquisition system better than contracting officers who managed it from the inside.

Kevin has held contracting officer warrants with unlimited signing authority in multiple Department of Defense agencies. He has written and reviewed over 1,000 contracts valued from $7,700 to $882 Million. In addition, Kevin has personally led or managed 143 competitive government source selections.

He has competed, awarded and administered contracts in a wide variety of industries, from aircraft and space systems to facilities and tactical vehicles. His collaborative style allowed him to communicate across a disparate customer base (Army Rangers, Navy SEALs, Air Force and Marine Corps SOF) to create rapid, effective acquisition strategies.
In addition to his hands on experience, Kevin has extensive credentials in the contracting and source selection field. He is an active member of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA), Suncoast Chapter. Kevin also has elite training and development experience in the Federal contract market. He was competitively selected for both the US Air Force’s Copper Cap Training Program and the Career Broadener Programs. Both of these targeted Department of Defense training programs are designed to accelerate the experience and knowledge of high-performing professionals in the DOD contracting and acquisition field.
