Getting Your Voice Heard: How to Become a Successful Paid Speaker
Upcoming on January 8, 2022...
Speaker: Beth Terry, CSP®
Topic: Writing Better Speeches Faster
Writing a speech is like planning a trip.
You need to know where you're going in order to know where to start.
Beth Terry, CSP®, crafted a system for creating great and powerful presentations in record time. As speakers we may have to change course at the last minute. It's helpful to know how to do this.
Beth first created this system when she was at a convention and realized as she spoke with the attendees they had zero interest in her topic. She thought she had spoken with the right people beforehand, but it turns out the meeting planner had not surveyed the attendees. It happens. She tossed her handouts, went out into the garden and wrote an entirely new talk in 20 minutes.
Beth's "pearl necklace" plan will serve you whether you are writing a five-minute presentation, a 20-minute keynote, or a one week seminar for your clients. When using this for longer presentations, it’s useful to first think about the overall presentation’s goal, and then break it down into sections of 45-50 minute mini-speeches.
About Beth: Beth Terry has been active in speaking for 50 years. She has been a member of NSA since 1989, and has presented to half a million people in 6 countries. She was the Chair of the Candidate program for 5 years, President of NSA-AZ in 2005-2006, and National Director of the Academy for two years.
