Lessons from Robin Sharma

Manner of Speaking

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a symposium at the IMD Business School in Lausanne, Switzerland led by Robin Sharma , a globally recognized authority on leadership. It was wonderful to sit down with him after the symposium and catch up.

high-tech women get a speaker's bureau

The Eloquent Woman

In my interview with Elizabeth Travis, PhD , of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, she noted the extra effort it takes to put women on scientific and technical panels: I organized an international meeting a year ago as a program chair and I said to my committee “Do not bring me a symposium without at least one woman speaker.” One man was so keen to do this, he had a symposium with all women faculty speaking—it takes that kind of effort.

An old television game show from the 1950s, Name that Tune , pitted 2 contestants against each other.

Public Speaking : Contract Marketing

Great Public Speaking

I learned this concept years ago from Dottie Walters (check out her Magnificent Marketing Symposium which is coming up in just a few weeks)[link] Smart speakers attempt to maximize the amount of money they make at each speaking engagement. Contract marketing is one way to do it. The idea is to put a mention of other products or services in your contract / agreement after you have landed the speaking engagement.

18 In February of 2008, we conducted an early experiment during a day-long symposium entitled Mixed Realities ( [link] ) at Emerson College. In many ways, the symposium’s format was traditional. When the symposium started, we announced that these features were available and we invited everybody’s participation.
