How to Get (More) Speaking Gigs

Have Something to Say? Let’s Talk!

With the advent of TED Talks, GoalCast, Leadercast, MoMondays’, and every other speaker forum in between, more and more people are getting over the world’s purported ‘#1 fear’ and getting up to speak – on a stage, in front of hundreds – and even thousands – of people.

It seems easy when you watch someone share their wisdom from the security of your laptop or cell phone, but behind every perfectly-timed 14-minute TEDx talk is likely a hundred hours of preparation, practice, proofing and performance anxiety. And while those opportunities are excellent personal brand amplifiers, the money is in the paid gigs – the corporates and trade conferences. Yet with so many people vying for the same piece of the stage, how do you stand out, and how do you get more paid bookings?

In this interactive workshop you will:

  • Work through exercises to discover who you are as a speaker
  • Develop your signature speech
  • Organize your speaker tool chest
  • Find out why you need a speaker/media kit
  • Learn insider secrets for how to build your speaker profile and book more speaking gigs
  • How to market yourself as a speaker
  • Q&A

How to Build Your Personal Brand

Let’s Get Personal

Today’s business environment has changed dramatically from what it was ten years ago. As networking and marketing have evolved in this hyper-social era of digital communications, so too has the demand for amplifying your personal brand.

While many business owners and entrepreneurs were familiar with the basic tenet of relationship marketing and understand the importance of networking and relationship-building, they rarely invested much time and effort building their personal brands unless they were car salesmen, real estate agents or insurance brokers. And even then, the emphasis was on name recognition rather than personal branding.

Join FDPR’s PR Pros and former media professionals, as they share proven success secrets garnered from their Internationally-recognized personal branding clients. Attendees will be guided through their signature Personal Branding Workshop, designed just for small business owners just like you.

This interactive workshop will help you identify your unique voice, discover your key differentiators and get you started on the development of the marketing collateral you need to ‘Package’ yourself professionally.

FDPR will work with participants as they lead them a personal branding workbook to help develop their unique voice and define who they are as a personal brand.

Estimated Time for Workshop: 2-3 hours
Cost: $147
