Use these assets to help you organise, engage and prepare your speakers for events you plan. Create a speaker tracker tab in your master spreadsheet. You can use this list to log people of interest who you might like to speak at your event and to help you manage multiple speakers.

Create one core document where you can draft and collaborate on the content that will be sent to speakers.
