The speaking business is made up of thought leaders and thought followers. Bill Gove was a thought leader. Larry Wilson was a thought leader. Bob Proctor is a thought leader. Most speakers are simply regurgitating the thoughts of others. The question is, are you REALLY a thought leader? What differentiates you from other speakers? What is your unique point of view on your subject of expertise? Have you taken a clear and bold position that establishes you as a thought leader? These are among the most important questions all speakers must answer. Watch this short video I taped in Minneapolis after attending the funeral of the great Larry Wilson, the man who mentored me on this concept for 17 years.
