Publisher's Summary

Unlike most public speaking audiobooks, Public Speaking to Get Business doesn't tell you how to become a better speaker, build your stage presence and confidence, prepare a stellar presentation, or the like. There are already a ton of good guides out there on those topics.  

What's missing from those guides is a discussion of how speaking gigs are actually booked where you can practice your skills, demonstrate your expertise, and attract followers and customers to you. Without the chance to get in front of real audiences, in person or online, it doesn't matter how great a speaker you are. 

What you'll discover are the types of speaking opportunities that are out there, along with suggestions for handling challenging situations before, during, and after your presentations that can eat up your time, energy, and money.  

Here's a preview of what's discussed: 

  • Who hires public speakers? 
  • Why you don't want to be a "professional" speaker. 
  • What should you talk about? 
  • Does public speaking help you sell books? And can your book help you get speaking gigs? 
  • How many sales leads can you really get from public speaking? 
  • How to evaluate public speaking opportunities. 
  • Dealing with unwanted post-presentation consultation requests. 
  • Twenty questions to ask your event host or organizer.  

This audiobook is made by business speaker, author, and blogger Dr. Heidi Thorne MBA/DBA, who has more than 25 years in sales, marketing, advertising, and publishing. You'll learn from her real-world insight and experience from speaking to small business and association audiences throughout her career. 

If you've been curious about what it's really like to speak to promote yourself and your business, this audiobook is worth a listen!
