About the Author
Lois Creamer is a recognized expert working with speakers who want to book more business, make more money and fully monetize their intellectual property. She is a veteran in the speaking industry, having started her company, Book More Business, in 1998. Lois is a proud member of the National Speakers Association, and a frequent presenter at their national meetings and chapters. Notable clients include Chicken Soup’s Jack Canfield; bestselling author of The Sales Bible, Jeffrey Gitomer; and presentation guru Patricia Fripp. Lois has advised Hall of Fame speakers and other speaking superstars, like Jeffrey Hayzlett, Karyn Buxman, Kathleen Passanisi, Roger Crawford, LeAnn Theiman, Bill Cates, Marjorie Brody, and Cy Wakeman, as well as those earlier in their careers. One of the things Lois has valued most in her 20 years in the speaking industry has been the opportunity to meet some of the most interesting people in the world -- from a notorious gang member (now reformed and wildly successful) to a former general who was head of NATO. Lois also developed sales programs for corporations and associations under the banner Fast Forward Selling.
Lois Creamer describes herself as both cheerleader and strategist. Her expertise and no-nonsense style has led her to be invited to speak at a dozen National Speakers Association annual meetings, numerous NSA winter meetings and at every NSA chapter in the United States. She has also presented at Canadian Association of Professional Speakers conventions and chapters, as well as several Global Association of Speakers events. Publications in which Lois appears include Forbes, Bloomberg Business, Speaker Magazine and The Wall Street Journal.
Book More Business: Make Money Speaking is Lois Creamer’s first book. She lives in Kirkwood, Missouri, with her husband Dick and her company’s “Chief of Joyfulness,” their yellow Labrador Retriever Buddy. She also makes frequent trips to California to visit her journalist daughter, Maggie. When she’s not busy consulting, speaking and writing, Lois enjoys reading and traveling -- especially to a beach!

This book cuts right to the chase on the topics that matter to professional speakers, like how to talk about ourselves differently, how to handle fees, and whether to be lone speaking superstars or align ourselves with agents, bureaus and support staff. I read Lois's book while in the midst of editing my first-ever speaker sizzle video, and the book gave me great, actionable tips about how to finish that project in a way that will generate great results. And the book, in addition to having lots of practical how-to advice, also reads like a coaching experience. I finished the book feeling less alone as a speaker, more inspired, and more confident.
Three things I think you'll love about this book?
1) It's easy to read, with concise conversations and quick "ah-ha" insights.
2) The advice is tried and true -- Lois is one of the nation's top speakers, and has worked with dozens just like her.
3) No matter who you are or how long you've been in the business of speaking, there will invariably be at least a few gems of insight you've been waiting for. As a professional marketer myself, I'm pretty good at building and promoting brands,and growing businesses. So imagine my surprise when I discovered that Book More Business isn't marketing 101 for speakers -- it covers even the not-so-obvious issues that we all need to address if we want to book more business and make money speaking.
I highly recommend this book for people at any stage of a professional speaking career.
I am working diligently to learn more about booking more speaking gigs to be a better resource for myself, my husband and my clients. I feel like Lois' book is the tool that can be used again and again. Thank you for taking the wealth of knowledge you have already shared and putting it in one, easy to use, easy to reference guide. I feel like she wrote it just for me!!!! Thank you!
