Arel Zalo Headshot Smiling.jpg


Arel is Talkadot's business development cofounder, best-selling author, and public speaker on likability, leadership and success.  Arel grew up on welfare in the Housing Projects of Brooklyn NY before going on to build a 7+ figures speaking and coaching business.  Arel has given thousands of talks and has been invited to be a featured speaker at the White House.  Inc. Magazine calls Arel a “high-energy motivator.”


I know what it’s been like not to have people return my emails.  I know what it’s been like to have people ignore me and dismiss me quickly, without giving me a fair chance.


Right now, there’s no way for clients to know you’re the real deal – unless they’ve heard you speak or unless they have a trusted referral.

But what if there was a way for that to change?


Today, the speakers who collect and use data are the ones who command the highest booking fees.  That’s because these are the speakers who can prove their worth.

Through Talkadot, I want to create the same opportunity for all speakers, no matter their speaking experience and speaking level.

I want your clients to move away from seeing you as a commodity, and towards understanding the unique value that you bring to the table.

Please join me in the Talkadot movement for better transparency and for speakers to build a better speaking reputation.
