#1 Reason Keynote Speakers FAIL

Posted by: | Comments (0)

In this short (2 minutes) video I discuss the #1 reason keynote speakers fail in this business. After earning over $13 million in speaking fees, I’d attribute most of my success to making sure I covered this one area well. Luckily I had the best mentor in the business, the great Bill Gove, the father of professional speaking. Bill drilled this lesson into my head for the 5 years we spent on the road together speaking in many of the largest auditoriums in America. Bill’s teaching lives on in the Bill Gove Speech Workshop www.SpeechWorkshop.com, and the more advanced course, the Million Dollar Speakers Club. www.MillionDollarSpeakersClub.comĀ

Professional Speakers Dream Venues

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Have you made a list of your dream audiences and venues? Maybe you want to speak to 1,000 people. Maybe 5,000. Maybe even 20,000! In which world-class venues do you dream of speaking in? Carnegie Hall? Madison Square Garden? Georgia Dome? When I started speaking for fees over 20 years ago, the largest audience I had ever spoken to was 300 people…for about 30 seconds! And the venue was a Holiday Inn! Watch this short video (2:42) on this subject that I shot at my ultimate dream venue!

Speaking at The Vatican

Posted by: | Comments (2)

As a professional or emerging professional speaker, how much do you believe in your message? Your level of belief will have a major impact on your audience response, and ultimately, on your speaking career. Watch this short video I shot at The Vatican a few days ago and I”ll look forward to your comments. (In the video I mistakenly say I’m in Rome, Italy, when I’m actually in Vatican City… apologies to my Catholic friends!)

Public criticism comes with being a thought leader in your area of expertise. It’s part of the job. The paradox of public criticism is that the more you are criticized, the more publicity you get and the more popular you become with your fan base. Critics, for all intents and purposes, are your friends. Welcome to the twisted world of being a public figure! :) Watch this short video on taking a stand (as a speaker) and enduring criticism.
