This week we are sharing more effective networking planning. Speaking engagements are an efficient way to network. We share our thoughts on why, as well as practical tips for booking your next speaking engagement.

As an attorney, speaking about a legal topic expands your network in a variety of ways. It associates your name with your practice area in a new way. By speaking or giving a talk to your local community, you are providing value while also marketing your practice.

The benefits for you are clear, but this isn’t a one way street. The organizations that sponsor these events are seeking people to present interesting relevant content. The attendees are seeking information. Presenting on a topic that you have expertise in is a mutually beneficial engagement. So how do you get started? You first want to define both your audience as well as you general topic. Defining your audience and identifying your topic will take some work, but it is well worth the time and energy.

Once you have your audience and your general topic ideas, you next need to connect with an organization that will bring you in to speak. Because you know the audience you’d like to reach, look to where those people are. If you want to speak to non-attorneys about a legal topic, you may look to your local government councils, town library, senior center, or PTA. If you want to speak to other attorneys, your best bet is to reach out to your state or local bar association to seek to present a topic for a continuing legal education seminar.

Once you’ve determined your audience, topic and organizations, reach out with a topic proposal. Since speaking for an organization is mutually beneficial, your proposal will likely be well-received and appreciated. Once you have secured a speaking engagement, prepare your talk, make sure it addresses your audience and their specific needs. Will you give a broad overview or a more nuanced delve into a topic? Ask yourself, what the message you are trying to deliver through this talk - what is the point of it all.

Be sure you comply with your state’s rules of professional conduct. And at the beginning of your talk, give a disclaimer that you are not giving legal advice. If you have time for Q and A, let your audience know that your happy to answer general questions but not case specific.

After your presentation, take time to meet the attendees, bring plenty of business cards, and be ready to network in a new way. If you haven’t worked speaking engagements into your networking plan in the past, consider reaching out and putting a speaking engagement on the calendar. Speaking engagements are a great way to expand your network as well as benefit your local community with important legal education.
