Alan Berg will be speaking again at our 2019 seminar and you won't want to miss it! I've seen him speak many times over the years at WeddingWire World and the Wedding MBA. Here is his bio:
 
Alan Berg has been called “The Leading International Speaker and Expert on the Business of Weddings & Events”. He’s presented in 11 countries, and is the wedding and event industry’s only Certified Speaking Professional®, the highest earned designation for a professional speaker, an honor less than 800 Global Speakers Federation members have achieved.
 
Alan’s 25+ years of industry experience includes publishing 2 wedding magazines, 11 years at The Knot, most as Vice President of Sales and Education, and now, as a consultant and Education Guru for WeddingWire, the leading wedding technology company. He also speaks and consults for websites in Ireland, the U.K., India and Dubai.
 
Alan is the author of the books “If your website was an employee, would you fire it?,” “Your Attitude for Success”, and the new, and much anticipated sales book “Shut Up and Sell More Weddings & Events!”
 
Alan speaks to thousands of entrepreneurs and local business professionals, domestically and internationally, through webinars, live presentations, audio programs and of course his 3 books, which are all available here today.
