I’m always asked “how do I get more gigs?” Well the problem for most speakers is not that they aren’t decent speakers. It’s that no-one knows they exist! Which is why, for better or for worse you have to work at increasing two fundamentals:
- Your Celebrity
- Your Credibility
Help people get to know you! You should film every engagement you do and edit together a “showreel” a bit like this. It should show off some teaching, some fun, some audience involvement and maybe some testimonials too.
That way promoters can see your style and feel good about having you speak at their event.
