Waiting out a two year non-compete (until August of 2012) on booking speakers and trainers for events; meanwhile looking for work that utilizes my sales skills
I am the founder (1988) and former owner of FIVE STAR Speakers & Trainers. My husband and I sold that company in 2005. I am the former president of the International Association of Speaker Bureaus, the only one to have served for two consecutive years. I have worked in the speaker and training industry since 1980 when I worked for the National Association of Sales Education (from secretary to sales manager to Vice President), and later for Fred Pryor of Fred Pryor Seminars (Pryor Resources) in sales and sales management.
Recipient of the two highest awards given to speaker bureau owners by the National Association of Speaker Bureaus - the John Palmer Award and the Dottie Walters Helping Hand Award.
