If you could interview a panel of successful speakers, what would you ask?

$24.95, 256 pages paperback (6×9) ISBN: 978-0-9822907-5-0

Whether you want to earn a six figure income as a speaking professional, or simply learn what the masters already know, Finding Speaking Success will reveal many of the answers you seek.

Some of their answers may surprise you.  Why do some speakers recommend lessons in acting, comedy, and improv? What are they doing now, that they wish they had started sooner?  Want to hear about their most humbling or embarrassing moments while speaking?  How is the profession changing with the proliferation of webinars and video conferencing?

We are extremely grateful to the 26 wonderful speakers who were so gracious with their time.  They can feel that the time was well spent because we have made their interviews available to anyone through Finding Speaking Success: Mentoring Tips from the Masters.
