What trends are on the horizon that you can capitalize on to get better speaking engagements and to get better results from them?
What are conferences and events looking for in their speakers and the topics they select?
How can you improve your presentations and workshops so the audience raves about you and you get invited to do more (including paid speaking)?
After having worked with over 100 clients during the past couple of years to create their presentations, workshops and keynotes, attended and spoken at many conferences and events, and talked to event organizers, I’ve noticed several key areas that too many speakers (and thus events) are missing, but that you can incorporate to set yourself apart.
In this episode, you’ll learn 3 trends you can apply to your presentation content and delivery that can make the difference between a so-so speaking engagement and one that makes an impact.
Hint: One of them has to do with candy (even better, the zero-calorie kind!).
