Rene’s Presentation

FAQs for Rene Cormier’s Presentation:

Q: “Do you supply printed fliers or posters that we can hand-out to our customers and hang on our walls prior to your presentation?”

A: Although we don’t supply the pre-printed fliers or posters, we do offer an online-download of the media as a printable PDF files – you can download the PDF files from the links below, and then you can print as many fliers and posters as you need.

Note: We offer several versions of the media:

  • A printable poster (PDF): Size 8-1/2″ x 11″ (standard printer paper size)
  • A printable poster (PDF): Size 8-1/2″ x 14″ (standard legal size paper)  The longer poster size has space at the bottom to write the date/time for your location.
  • A printable flier/hand-out (PDF): Size 8-1/2″ x 11″ (standard printer paper size)  There are two fliers fitted on the page, so you’ll need to cut the paper in half. You may choose to cut to allow extra white space at the bottom of each flier, or cut even borders, whichever you prefer.
  • A web-ready poster (JPG): Size medium (300p in width)
  • A web-ready poster (JPG): Size small (150p in width)

Note: Web-ready images have been optimized to look great on computer screens (not for printing). Use the web-ready images to include in your email-blasts, eNewsletters, Facebook posts, etc.

Q: “How will Rene get the word out?”

A: We do local outreach to print media, radio, and TV, as well as any free weeklies. Media outreach is a complete gamble, but the more people we ask to run a story, the greater are chances of having success are.

Q: “Is there a Press Release available so we can use it to announce on our website/email-blast/mailing list/Facebook Page?”

A: You may use the web-ready (JPG) images, and include a brief intro to the event – use this template if you wish being sure to add in your shop details as well as the time and date of your talk and contact details at the bottom:

Please join us as we host Rene Cormier and his well used BMW F650 GS here at [dealership name and address] on [date/time]. He sold all of his belongings when he was 33 years old to take an unsupported, unsponsored, mostly solo trip around the world, covering 96,000 miles over 4.5 years, on a budget of $25/day! He has written an award-winning book of his travels called “The University of Gravel Roads: Global Lessons from a Four-Year Motorcycle Adventure” and signed copies will be available after the talk.

This event is free to attend, and open to all riders, but RSVP’s are appreciated. All guests are welcome to enter a draw to win a guided motorcycle tour with Rene and his company Renedian Adventures who run motorcycle tours in Africa.

For more information or to RSVP, please email [XXXXXXXX] or phone [XXXXXXXXXXX].

 

Q: “What is needed before Rene arrives, other than chairs and refreshments (a screen? projector? computer? sound system?)”

A: We bring all of that stuff. The shop is only responsible for chairs, and refreshments. Easy!

Q: “Will there be a break at the half-way point of Rene’s presentation?”

A: No. Experience tells us we lose massive momentum if we do that. So a little more than 1 hour for the talk, and directly into 15-30 minutes for Q&A.

Q: “Do you have a webpage for the presentation so we can send a link to our customers for information?”

A: Yes, you may use the link below to direct your customers to the presentation page on Renedian.com

www.renedian.com/about-us/rene-cormier-presentation-sponsored-by-bmw-and-touratech/

Q: “Any other thoughts on how we can promote the presentation?”

A: As part of our outreach we send info to all motorcycle clubs and rider groups that we can find in your area, regardless of motorcycle brand. The shops can also make the same outreach to other friendly shops. It would be wise to put flyers on the bulletin boards of coffee shops, travel agencies, libraries, local outdoor shops, and universities. Often there may be a “Free Things To Do in (your-town) This Week“, part of your local newspaper that we don’t find on our search. That is another good spot.
