NY Speechwriters Conference Debrief 2 of 3

Ian Griffin - Professionally Speaking

He comments on the “Know your Worth” breakout session with Fletcher Dean, Julie Conway and Harry Kruglik and the relevance of salary surveys in journalism which might be valuable for speechwriters to initiate. Likewise, in a parallel breakout, Gotham Ghostwriters founder Dan Gerstein addressed the value of freelancers sharing rate information. He explains that it’s easy to find tips on the basics of speechwriting which he assumed most attendees at this event knew.

Rehashing old content at the same venue?

Speak Schmeak

I spoke at a conference last week, where the keynote speaker rehashed several significant and memorable stories that she had used the year before at the same conference, but in a breakout session. It actually annoyed me that I had heard most of her talk before, and at the same event. I'm wondering if this is a faux pas, or if it's okay for speakers to recycle the same content for pretty much the same audience, especially if one presentation is a breakout and one is a keynote.

Public Speaking: Listen To Everyone

Great Public Speaking

When you are speaking at an event that has multiple speakers, try to listen to as many of the other speakers as you can. In particular, don't miss the keynote or general session speakers. By doing this you are able to add a polish to your talk and to the event as a whole. I'll never forget many years ago I was doing a breakout session for a big real estate company.

What's the point of speech contests?

Speak Schmeak

And I'm speaking as a former speech team member who competed in speech contests and occasionally won events. We speak at conferences where an audience member is torn between three different breakout sessions, and might leave in the middle to catch parts of each. I admit it; I get a little bent out of shape at the title "World's Best" or "World Champion" when it's thrown around willy-nilly. Maybe I have a problem with competition. I take it too seriously, for one thing.

It is Not Your Clients' Job to Know How They Can Hire You Again

Fripp THE Executive Speech Coach

When your associates are at a client meeting or networking event, the way they act, speak and behave adds to or diminishes both their personal and your corporate reputations. To add to your convention success, why not engage Patricia Fripp to deliver a presentation skills keynote speech and then present one or more interactive breakout sessions? My best client is Dan Maddux, the Executive Director of the American Payroll Association. 

Getting Hired to Speak: What's Their Why?

Speak and Deliver

I talked about making phone calls to meeting planners and event organizers. This lets them know you're willing to give them a customized session, and that you are more interested in what they need to hear than what you want to say. - Breakout sessions, individual follow-up, a book they may want to see for themselves, and offer to their attendees. The self-help industry often focuses on the question "What's Your Why?" , as in why do you want to succeed?

Watch for her coming to an event near you!
