The National Financial Educators Council launches the first national speaker’s bureau dedicated to financial literacy advocates and educators – the Personal Finance Speakers Association.
With the current trend of economic uncertainty, long-term fiscal cliff problems, over 100 trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities and increasing tax rates – also comes an increased need for financial educators and advocates. The financial problems faced by the US (and world) are fueling the financial literacy industries growth. The NFEC is proactively addressing this need for qualified financial education presenters by formalizing a speaker’s association.
The Personal Finance Speakers Association is focused on three main objectives:
1) Providing organizations that seek qualified financial educators and/or advocates a convenient way to choose a speaker that best meets their event goals.
The NFEC’s Personal Finance Speakers Association offers organizations that are seeking educators, keynote presenters and speakers a one-stop solution. Our Association members offer diverse backgrounds and expertise that also meet a variety of budgetary requirements. From celebrity presenters to affordable presenters that recently graduated the Certified Financial Education Instructor coursework – the NFEC team of speakers will meet most event and budget needs.
2) Promote speaking professionals and personal finance experts to increase their visibility book them for speaking engagements.
For seasoned professionals, the NFEC provides booking, promotional services and high profile awareness campaigns. The booking services allow speakers to focus on their main business as the NFEC handles the sales process, client relations and contract. For this service the NFEC receives a set percentage of the speaking fee. The NFEC also provides promotional opportunities that allow them to get their name out, these include: awards, article promotions, viral video campaigns, press releases and other marketing services. The promotional services are provided complimentary.
3) Give novice presenters tools and support that help them build their resume, improve their positioning, gain experience and deliver impactful presentations.
For those with a passion for sharing the message of financial literacy but lack the experience, the NFEC offers comprehensive solutions. From the Certified Financial Education Instructor training to helping speaker hopefuls build their brand – the NFEC supports the development of new educators. The NFEC also books new speakers for events. Initially the events they are hired for are free speaking events with the goal to help them command a speaking fee as they build their skill sets and resume.
