Nov 14, 2022


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)
  • A GPS can fail (3:01)
  • Checklist items you might need (5:31)
  • My favorite thing to do (6:11)

  • A printed bio (8:07)
  • Slideshow users (9:06)
  • Checklist for afterward (13:12)
  • How to get the checklist (14:53)

Speaking events should be exciting, not stressful. And that’s why I want to make sure y’all are well prepared, ready to stand up, check those boxes and say, I’ve got this! What’s the most important item you would include on your checklist? Join the Take the Stage Facebook group or send me a DM on Instagram and let me know!
