NY Speechwriters Conference Debrief 2 of 3

He discusses the unusual nature of the opening keynote that took people out of their intellect into a bodily appreciation of what is involved in the act of speaking. David Murray explains why he chose an experiential opening keynote from Edmée Tuyl.

Rehashing old content at the same venue?

Speak Schmeak

Signature Speeches

Speaking Of...

Most professional speakers become SME's, or so-called Subject Matter Experts, in certain fields, and are able to offer these topics as either a keynote or breakout session speech. Tags: keynotes signature speeches This is the time of year I am working on speaking dates for spring 2010. Deciding what to offer as a topic is something that is always chaleenging. I'm aiming for speaking dates in Texas and Alaska, as I think these locales offer me greater challenge.

Public Speaking: Listen To Everyone

Great Public Speaking

In particular, don't miss the keynote or general session speakers. I'll never forget many years ago I was doing a breakout session for a big real estate company. We then went to the closing general session an hour later, the big shot keynote speaker made a fool of himself by using material I had gone over already. When you are speaking at an event that has multiple speakers, try to listen to as many of the other speakers as you can.

And I delivered a workshop, a breakout session and was on a panel. But the whole conference began with a great keynote. They''re managers who - at most - speak to employees in small town hall sessions.

What's the point of speech contests?

Speak Schmeak

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. It's essentially a mini-keynote geared to fit the criteria on the judging sheet.

And I delivered a workshop, a breakout session and was on a panel. But the whole conference began with a great keynote. They're managers who - at most - speak to employees in small town hall sessions. So I heard an amazing story last week at the Ragan Speechwriters’ Conference. OK, maybe not amazing but it’s a story every speechwriter and everyone who uses a speechwriter should hear.

How to develop a paid public speaking career – VII: Those FAQs

Public Speaking Advice and Commentary

  Start out with a breakout session, and work your way up.    To be a keynoter, you need a book.  I’m closing out this series on your paid public speaking career with some FAQs.    1.    So I need a book – can I self-publish? The answer is no.    At this point, self-publishing just doesn’t measure up in the eyes of the speakers bureaus and meeting planners who will be hiring you.

The Eloquent Woman

Speaking for Dollars by Vickie Sullivan

And each year you see highly paid keynoters on the program and think, “I could do that.” Now there are far more speakers than audiences, and veteran professional speakers must contend with athletes and celebrities for the most coveted (and highest-paying) spot on the program: the keynote address. Therefore, to get the big fees – or any fee at all – you must compete in the keynote or general-session market.
