** Top 5 Bestseller in Public Speaking, Business Life and Business Communications categories **
As creatives in a crowded world, we can no longer sit in our rooms, creating alone, if we want a viable income. Increasingly, we have to be out there in the world, sharing our knowledge and being visible in order to have a successful career.
Public speaking can be an extra income stream, or can form an integral part of your marketing. It's also a good idea to plan for success and authors/creatives often have to speak when they become well-known, so it's best to start practicing earlier.
This book is a starter pack and an easy reference guide with the information that you need the most to speak confidently and professionally in public. And, although some chapters have specific tips for introverts, much of this information will be useful for anyone who is interested in public speaking, regardless of their personality type.
In this book, I'll share everything that I know as a professional speaker and introverted author-entrepreneur.
The book contains lots of tips about public speaking in general, based on my own experience over the last five years. In addition, I cover some specific points that creative introverts need to consider as speakers.
You can read this book from start to finish, but you can also dip in and out, as each chapter contains succinct tips that you'll need at different times on your journey.
The book includes:
Part 1: Practicalities of Speaking
Types of speaking and deciding on your niche, as well as your specific topics. Preparation for the event, including you and your energy, as well as slide packs, handouts, download pages and personal presentation. Pre-speaking rituals and actually giving the talk itself, plus how to end well. Managing people, being on panels, feedback and testimonials, as well as performing your work and improving your speaking over time.
Part 2: Mindset
What an introvert is, and the specific ways in which we need to look after ourselves when speaking. Why speak anyway. Tackling anxiety and growing confidence. The importance of authenticity and bringing you to your speaking.
Part 3: Practicalities of Business
How to get speaking work and running your own events. Marketing your business, including your speaker brand, website, professional photos, email and content marketing, social media as well as using video and audio. The financials of your speaker business, including how to determine your rates and value, when to say no, increasing your revenue streams through book publishing and multimedia products.
