For Speakers: Ten Tips on How to Increase Your Fees

One of the most important tools speakers use is their FEE SCHEDULE. Here are ten tips to help you increase your attractiveness and income, while communicating exactly what you offer and clarify your fees for your programs, products, and services.

Speaking One-to-One

Speaking to an individual is different from the group experience. Whether you are training someone, selling, coaching, or asking for a raise, here are some tips for speaking one-to-one.

Conversationally Speaking

"Would you like to say a few words?" How many of us dread that request? The thought of speaking off the cuff can terrify even veteran speakers. But what about the ability to give a prepared speech and sound natural?As a speech coach, I see hundreds of people who are wedded to their words.

Are You Talking the Talk?

"More learning occurs through emotion than through intellect" C.S.

Know Your Audience

What is worse than wearing a tuxedo to an event when everyone else is attending in shorts?I have said the same thing over and over again: before you attend the event, get to know the audience. If the audience is not right for you, you may attend, but it is unlikely that you will gain any new business.

Ethics in Speaking: A Practical Point of View

Often managers have to deliver presentations with unpleasant content. The vice president has to announce that there is a hiring freeze or a downsizing.

For Speaking Ease, Forgive Your Younger Self

I love the Disney movie The Kid with Bruce Willis. In it he plays a stressed-out, high-power image consultant.

Knowing Your Boundaries

While delivering a speech, it is clear that we will be judged and perceived in a certain way based on our ideas, words, and body language. Taking a risk and really thinking out of the box can be quite rewarding and at the same time, it can be a disaster.

Earn Your Cs as A Speaker

Franklin Delano Roosevelt had some good advice for the public speaker when he said, be sincere, be brief, be seated. Be simple, natural and effective and earn your C's.

Lessons in Love for the Shy at Heart

One of the biggest regrets of my life is that I was cursed with the shyness gene. Shyness is an often misunderstood condition that can leave the afflicted alone and miserable.

Speak With a Relaxed Body and Mind

Fear of public speaking is No.1.

Overcome Your Fear of Public Speaking

Knocking knees, butterflies (who came up with that word?) in your stomach, sweaty palms, quavering voice. We've all been there - some of us more than others.

Speak Up or Sit Down

Last night the phone rang; my wife said, "I hope it's for you". When I answered, the caller asked, "Ray, would you speak to the Lions Club next month?" First my gut said, "No"; however, my head said, "Do it".

Start Conversations as Easily as You Start a Car

Starting a car is easy. Put the key in, turn it, and the car starts.

The Porch Light* Method to Speaking Confidence

You know the feeling. Looking out at a sea of faces, you notice a few scowls, frowns, even droopy eyelids on some of your audience members.
