Business Development Intern

Bookmark This


I am a bestselling author, speaker, and news commentator who is looking for a creative,
motivated, out-of-the-box thinker who can research and target potential speaking engagements, business prospects, and media opportunities. The work I do has an inspiring, positive message about triumphing over challenges, and is in the personal and professional development space.

You will begin as fundamental part of a small business development team, although my commitment is that once you’re trained you would move forward to become the Business Development Manager.

The successful Business Development Manager will strategize to discover existing opportunities, and once those opportunities have been identified, will reach out to forge new and existing relationships with potential speaking venues and events, media opportunities, like-minded brands for collaborations, and potential clients and target organizations. The business development manager will nurture, develop, and grow those relationships with the aim to secure commitment and maximize the delivery of my services.

You will prepare and implement marketing strategies to generate and maintain increased sales in these fields. You will be hands-on, creating and maintaining a database of information, developing knowledge of our market, and creating leads. You will be responsible for identifying and/or creating new business opportunities through networking, cold-calling and when necessary, and making presentations to new and existing clients. You will support and explore existing client account relationships to maintain and grow sales.

• Research business and appearance opportunities
• Help create and distribute pitches, press releases, and marketing content.
• Replying to potential clients, organizations, and booking agents.
