As you might know I bit of public speaking to business groups, universities and the like.
Although it takes a lot of time and energy to put together a speech – a minimum of 2 days up to 100 hours work for a 20-30 minute speech – many of the speech I do are done at no charge.
I did a free speech last year to a business group. Today I measured that we’ve generated $30,000+ in work for the business from the contacts we’ve made from me doing that speech.
If you’re looking to expand your business, here are 3 easy steps to take:
- Do a public speaking course
- Write 2-3 great speeches relevant to your area of expertise
- Go out and get some gigs
It’s a no-brainer.
