4 Mistakes Most Speakers Make (and what to do instead)



Ever gone to a concert of an artist whose work you didn’t know that well?

That was me the other night at a Shania Twain concert with my wife. Singing along even though I didn’t know any of the words. I put a video up on Instagram in case you missed it. Fun times!

Onto the links...

Quick Links of the Week: TIp of the Week:

What do you do if you’re asked about your speaking experience and you don’t have much yet? It’s a tough situation because it seems like you need the experience to get the job, but you need the job to get experience.

Oftentimes questions about “experience” are really about “expertise.” If you can prove that you can provide value to your audience, it goes a long way. If possible, respond by offering your expertise on a topic and share an anecdote about a person or organization you’ve helped with the information you share from the stage.

If you’re pressed for a list of past speaking events, you can clarify that while you haven’t done an event exactly like theirs before, you have shared this information many times in conference rooms, classrooms, from the pulpit, in 1-on-1 coaching, or whatever context you gained your expertise from in the first place.

You’re awesome,
