Meet Your Judges for the 2022 Brand Builder Competition

Nov 02, 2022

November is National Entrepreneurship month and to celebrate Speaker Slam® has created the Brand Builder Competition to highlight entrepreneurs all across the world making a difference.

Speaker Slam® is known for being the creator of North America's Largest Inspirational Speaking Competition. We have been doing this for the last 6 years and so know a thing or two about running competitions. We bring together the most talented speakers, reputable professional judges, and hundreds of passionate attendees for the thrill of competition. Our competitions feature competitors going head to head and heart to heart, to deliver powerful messages with a chance of winning prizes valued at up to $20,000.

The Brand Builder Competition is our newest creation...

As a Speaker Development Agency, we know firsthand how important a speaker’s brand is when it comes to getting booked & paid to speak. A unique brand sets you apart from the competition and creates a captivating allure that moves you to the front of the line for speaking engagements. An event organizer or potential client should be able to know instantly who you are and what value you can add.

We have asked our competitors to create a unique Positioning Graphic that best demonstrates their unique value and position in the marketplace. The top 10 will compete during our Momentum Virtual Conference on November 18th in front of our stellar lineup of judges.
