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.

Why Speakers Fail

Posted by: | Comments (1)

An astounding number of smart, educated, successful people attempt to break into the professional speaking business every year, yet only a tiny fraction ever earn a penny for delivering a speech. And I’m not talking about the nice, but naive people who follow the internet marketers, speaker trainers, and other charlatans who tell them they can write a book in 30 days and get paid to speak in a week. I’m talking about sophisticated businesspeople with 6-7 figure incomes. Even the ones who license the intellectual property of famous authors, ministers, and motivational speakers, rarely ever break through. There’s a reason, and in this video, I explain it, and the solution you can follow to insure your success in this business.

Speakers: Study Leadership

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Leadership is one of the most important topics you can study as a speaker. Every audience craves leadership lessons, and thats why it’s critical to stay current on the most recent books on the subject. I’m recommending (2) in 2015. One is called Leadership Sales Coaching, by Jason Forrest and the other is Seven Disciplines of a Leader, by Jeff Wolf. Both men are world-class speakers on the subject and their books are excellent. Watch this short video I taped on them and I’ll look forward to your comments.
