This is PART 2 of my conversation with Twist! She shares her behind the scenes experience of growing her speaking business, how to network your way into this opportunities, and the seeds to plant to go from speaking for FREE to getting paid!
Alyssa Light comes from a long and very proud line of tradespeople and until 2009 she was one, too. Alyssa has been an entrepreneur most of her life: Making her first $200 at age 11, starting her first business at 17, and creating the 20th anniversary gifts for Blue Rodeo while in college – she’s always loved business.
In the last 5 years her contributions have taken a company from near-bankrupt to being sale ready, helped a client hit a 5 year target in just 8 months, quadrupled the goal of a clear-out sale, supported a start-up to exceed a 30 day goal by 300%, taken hiring successes from 50% to 90%, and created so much buzz for one client they are now booked 18-24 months out.
With her ability to come up with marketing on the spot for audience members, and sharing proprietary innovative HR systems that revolutionize teams, Alyssa’s content is sharp and relevant. She promises a dynamic and tailored delivery for you.
Alyssa has spoken at Landscape Ontario’s Congress (and is booked for 2020), Ontario Irrigation Conference, CreativFestival, Halton Police Service, Go Camp Pro, Social Tenacity, the Ontario Camp Association, and many more. A self proclaimed lover of conferences, Alyssa’s mission is to make event planners look like superheroes and delegates feel like rockstars.
