Day one

Platform & Speaking Skills

You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. Never has this been so true as with a Professional speaker. You need to make a great first impression all the time; when meeting bureaus for the first time, when selling yourself to prospective clients, when meeting potential clients and on the platform. Mark Victor Hansen said that professional speaking is 95% marketing, but if your platform skills are lacking all the marketing in the world will not help you. Today's successful speaker is part entertainer, educator, marketer and salesperson. If any of these areas are lacking, business will suffer .
