EP 15: Practical Things You Can Do Right Now To Build Your Speaking Credibility


I believe all of us have the same opportunities to reach our audience from the stage. However, not all of us know how to bundle up our business into a cohesive speaking platform. I’m tired of watching incredible business owners halting their own speaking success because they feel trapped in the cycle of “I need experience in order to be selected to speak. But in order to gain experience, I need to be selected to speak” This week, we’re going to stop that cycle in its tracks! Building credibility as a speaker isn’t about waiting around for someone to tell you “You’re an expert- come speak!” It’s about taking action and building that credibility for yourself. It’s not complicated, but it IS going to take some work on your part… are you in?

Episode takeaways you don’t want to miss:

  • If you want inbound speaking requests, you need to be known for SOMETHING - not everything. By selecting your “zone of genius” you will see speaking requests that fit who you are as a speaker fall in your lap.

  • Event organizers and the audience shouldn’t just know you, but should know your work. They should know your zone of genius.

  • Make sure you’re immersed in the work that you’re sharing about and are up to date on what’s happening in your field.

  • Showcase your speaking expertise by compiling your speaker marketing materials into one cohesive spot.
