What Every Speaker Needs to Know

Whether you are a “veteran” speaker or just getting your speaking ministry started, we’ve all had moments that we’ve thought, “I sure wish I would have known that ahead of time!” In this practical and inspiring workshop, you’ll learn how to enhance the effectiveness of your speaking ministry by:

  • Understanding the felt needs of your audience.
  • Establishing your speaking fee with confidence, and overcoming awkward exchanges when communicating your rate.
  • Creating messages that initiate life change, influence people, and expand your ministry’s impact.
  • Identifying potential pitfalls in your speaking ministry and navigate around them successfully. 
  • Leaving a lasting impression that encourages others to recommend you to other events.
