Comprehensive Coverage

Completely Up-to-date!

Turn your expertise into a highly paid speaking career!

Getting Started in SPEAKING, TRAINING, or SEMINAR CONSULTING

Superstar speakers like Tom Peters get $30,000 or more for a one-hour keynote address. Other top speakers earn $5,000 to $10,000 or more per day. The market for speakers, trainers, and seminar consultants is huge: U.S. companies spend an estimated $55 billion annually on workplace training. And you don't have to be a Tom Peters to earn a good living as a professional speaker. There's a demand for experts in every area from how to reduce stress, organize time, and manage people to how to write a business letter or troubleshoot a local area network. People from all walks of life successfully do it: Teachers, consultants, authors, executives, entrepreneurs, and training professionals have all built lucrative second careers as speakers.

Getting Started in Speaking, Training, or Seminar Consulting shows you, step-by-step, exactly what you need to know to become a polished and highly paid speaker (or, if you already are one, a better one). You'll learn how to:
* Create a presentation that audiences want to hear
* Identify your market
* Establish yourself as an authority in your field
* Effectively sell yourself and win speaking engagements
* Set fees, write contracts, and handle other financial and legal aspects of the profession
* Promote yourself on the Internet
* Work with bureaus, agents, reps, and office assistants
* Boost your speaking income with information products

Imagine yourself as a successful speaker: You get to stand up and talk in front of an audience . . . you help others with your knowledge . . . you're sought out for your expert counsel . . . and you're paid very well for it! It can happen-with the straightforward, podium-proven advice in the book you're holding in your hand.
