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.com
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!
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!)

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.
