Securing Public Speaking Opportunities


What does it take to become a thought leader? To be seen as the expert or the authority in your field? What will it take to get that next promotion? Or a new job? Or a board seat? Often, nothing more than the willingness to speak up and share your thoughts and experiences in public.

Employers have always valued the employee who speaks well. Public speaking is, and always will be, an important skill, and well worth developing. Founders, company owners and consultants know it is important to get onstage in order to promote their products and services.

This presentation focuses on:

  • Why you need to get yourself on stage either as an employee or a business leader.
  • What opportunities exist.
  • How you will find and secure speaking engagements.

We'll give you an action plan to help you move forward in your career or business through public speaking.
