On-Demand (Watch Now): Defining Your Value As A Professional Speaker

Presenter: Layna Ware

Overview: As a speaker, we MUST have a clear definition of the problem we are solving. We should be able to relate, understand and empathize. Once we have a defined problem, the solution MUST be just as clear on how WE, the speakers, are able to solve it. The defined problem/solution points to the value proposition which positions you to make MORE money when getting paid to speak. All of this should be a competitive advantage over others because YOU, the speaker, have a strategy to solve a problem that affects YOUR audience.
