Creating a Speaker Sheet can be a complex task, particularly when it comes to effectively communicating your requirements to your virtual assistant (VA). Miscommunication can lead to wasted time and a lack of enthusiasm in bringing your ideas to life. In this blog article, we'll guide you through the process of assigning this task to your VA with clarity.



What You Need to Prepare:

Before delegating the task, gather the following data, information, and files to assist your VA in successfully creating the Speaker Sheet:

  1. Speaker's Bio/Details

  2. High-resolution Images of the Speaker

  3. Topics or Areas of Expertise

  4. Previous Speaking Engagements or Achievements

  5. Contact Information and Social Media Links

What to Send to Your Virtual Assistant:

To ensure clear communication, provide your VA with precise instructions. Use the following template and fill in the blanks:
