At a recent meeting of the Long Beach chapter of the Professional Speakers Association, I had the opportunity to interview Julie Austin, the creator of Speaker Sponsor, a site that helps speakers find sponsors and sponsors find speakers to sponsor.
Julie’s advice was to learn from successful speakers. This past weekend I had the opportunity to do just that. I attended Maurice DiMino’s Million Dollar Message Bootcamp. Not only did I learn a lot about how to pull my message together, how to get gigs and how to monetize my gigs, I also got to watch a pro in action! To say I learned a lot would be under-selling the event.
Every time you attend a workshop, seminar or boot camp, watch how the speaker or speakers ply their craft. You’ll find that you’ll learn a lot about how to organize your own presentations, how to use your voice and body to help communicate your message and sometimes even how to effectively monetize your speaking gigs.
