Speaking for college Orientation events is one of the most lucrative times of year for speakers. I have speaker friends who make a big money during this time.

College orientation sessions remain an untapped gold mine for speakers, authors, coaches and consultants, says James Malinchak, who was twice voted the Number One speaker on the college circuit. Malinchak teaches people how to profit by speaking to the collage market in his Millionaire Speaker Bootcamp.
"You could be losing a ton of money by not speaking for college orientations," he said. "College Orientations are one of the most overlooked, lucrative speaking niches."
If you're wondering what Orientation is, this is a time period when the college or university hosts all of the in-coming freshmen and transfer students (and their parents or spouses) for a few days up to an entire week where school representatives inform and educate the students, parents and spouses about the school, location of buildings, where to get tutors, dormitory and apartment living, etc. Basically, it's a time where school representatives help students, parents and spouses get acclimated with the college or university.
College Orientation is usually held August and September and also January and February, but some schools hold their Orientation in the summer. Some schools will even do two different Orientation events.
"There's one school that brings me in twice a year, for both their August and January Orientation programs. There's another school that pays me $10,000 a year every March to deliver four talks in two days to their incoming students," Malinchak said. "Speaking for college Orientation events is one of the most lucrative times of year for speakers. I have speaker friends who make a big money during this time."
