Andrew Chow : Speaker One Sheet

As a professional speaker, I am often asked to submit my bio and profile by client who wish to hire me for key note or training. In the past, I used to send them more than 10 pages of professional speaking history, testimonial, pictures of past speaking engagement, etc. These can be generated entirely from Linkedin or created from frequently updated material.

In the past, I thought the more details I provide, the higher the chance of being hired. Nothing is further from the truth. What most client require is a Synopsis usually in one or two pages of One Sheet.

How do you stand out among so many professional speakers especially when you become to the Asia Professional Speakers – Singapore (APSS)?

The details you should consider having on that One Sheet are:

1. Name and your designation

2. Five key points about yourself

3. Media Appearance

4. Book Written

5. Major and Recent Client

6. Signature Program

7. Standard Key Notes

8. Social Media / Email contacts

9. Interesting quotes

10. Client Testimony

11. Community or Charity Involvement

12. Brand Ambassadorship

13. Awards / Accolades

The purpose of Speaker One Sheet is for Personal Branding. It tells your target audience your unique value preposition. It answers their question as to Why should they be hiring you.

The design should be Clean, Crisp and Creative.  Design your personal logo if possible. Stick to your usual colour, align it with your name cards, website, blog or postcards.

Below are two of my One Sheet, one from Richard Gavriel Speaker Management and the other my own design.

Spirit of Service Award 2012 by Asia Professional Speakers Singapore (APSS)

Asia Professional Speakers Singapore (APSS)

Since 2010, the Asia Professional Speakers Singapore (APSS) has annual awards given to members of the Association during its Annual Convention. This year, it is held from 7-8 May 2012.

Spirit of Service Presidents’ Award

This is awarded to a person who has been of immeasurable support to the President for that calendar year. The nominees and the recipient for this award will be selected in January each year by the two Presidents of that calendar year. These two Presidents will inform their decision to active past Presidents to obtain a supporting quorum. It is highly likely, but not a specific requirement, that a member of the Board of Directors will receive this award.

Spirit of Service Award

This is awarded to a member of APSS who has served the Association in an outstanding way during the year and has demonstrated dedication to the Association.
