Getting ready for your speaking engagement requires a lot of preparation, right? You’ve got your speaker agreement, contract, and when and where you’re scheduled – and that’s just the beginning. On top of being nervous about speaking, you might be worried about remembering everything you need to bring with you. If you want to be prepared and alleviate those feelings of nervousness, keep listening. I just know you’ll like what I’ve got for you!

In this episode, I share the brand-new one-page resource I created just for you. Here are all the things you need to have with you before you leave.

Highlights from today’s episode include:

  • The speaker’s checklist (1:44)
