Now is the time to break into the keynote speaking business! I just returned from speaking at the National Speakers Associations, and the entire industry seems to be confounded as to how to market and sell themselves in the new economic climate. Meanwhile, corporate America is sitting on $2.5 trillion dollars in cash while simultaneously dealing with a host of unprecedented problems. In short, the demand for speakers is growing and the supply is shrinking–but–only for the best of the best. The mediocre middle class of the business is gone. You’re either a problem solving thought leader and a damn good speaker or you’re out of business. I’m looking for 8 people who want to become exceptional national keynote speakers. Watch this short video and I hope to see you in Chicago August 24-26, 2012.
