Episode 57: How to Market Yourself as a Speaker

Oct 4, 2021


Today on, Take the Stage – for Speakers by Speakers, I will talk about marketing and promotion. Now, I know this isn’t a favorite topic, but it’s a topic that comes up repeatedly with new and seasoned speakers. I get it. We don’t want to come across as a salesperson.

Be sure to tune in as I challenge you to flip the script with marketing and promotion and how to do this.

“We limit ourselves when we don’t open ourselves up to opportunity.” – Mary R Snyder

  • Flip the script (1:19)
