Never Turn Down A Speaking Engagement
Speaking engagements are scary ... and fruitful. A new business meeting is a one-on-one opportunity. Speaking engagements are one-to-many, a highly efficient way to get people to learn about your value. Take advantage of the opportunity every time someone asks you to speak in front of a group. The audience sees how you think. If they like what they hear, even if they don't need you now, maybe they will someday, or know someone who does. And never use a speaking engagement to sell your firm or services -- only your way of thinking and unique approach to a problem.
