Looking to increase your visibility to Event Planners?
HealthWorld Speaker's Network - A searchable database of experienced speakers who offer programs related to Natural Health, Alternative Therapies, and Integrating Conventional and Complementary Approaches.
Basic Listings provide speaker data regarding topics, types of presentations, travel limits, fee range, and booking contact, plus a link to the speaker's web site, if available.
When you find a speaker who interests you, most Basic Listings are linked to a Speaker Home Page that provides a photo, plus samplings of titles of speaker's standard presentations, major events where s/he has presented, professional activities, education, publications, honors, and other data to allow you to pre-qualify the speaker.

Scheduling & Promoting Events?
Global Health Calendar - A searchable database calendar of events covering the full-spectrum of health and well-being -- from allopathic and alternative therapies, medical research and fitness to personal growth and development, and spirituality and self-care.
Before you set the date for your next event - check what is already scheduled. Many have stated the need for a "conflict calendar" to prevent scheduling opposite similar events. Link to the Search Calendar Events of the Global Health Calendar for a strong indication of health-related events. (Caution: this Calendar is very large and takes a while to download). Events are offered in date order. Move to the time period you are considering and scan down the listing of events already scheduled.
If you are only concerned with a specific geographic area or a certain type of event, link to the Search Calendar Events
of the Global Health Calendar. You are offered a number of search parameters, such as Key Topics, Type of Event, or State. All Calendar events meeting the selected parameter will be displayed in an easy to scan listing in date order.
