I talk quite a bit on this podcast about signature talks – why you should have one and what goes into one.

Your signature talk is your foundation for your brand message and story. It showcases who you are, what you do, who you do it for, and why it matters.

We’ve worked with our clients for the past 5 years to help them create their signature talk, which they’ve used for presentations (in-person and virtually) for brand awareness, lead generation, keynotes, and TEDx talks.

In this episode, Diane Diaz and I talk about:

  • 4 types of talks you should have as an entrepreneur, speaker, and thought leader
  • When you should use each type
  • Examples of each
  • My favorite type of talk
  • What the women in our Thought Leader Academy are currently working on

This episode is part of our series on Goals & Planning.
