Mike Moore’s Profitable Speaking

newsletter for speakers and those who want to be speakers)

A Warm Hello to you all.
Well it has been a very busy month. I recently returned from
Ottawa, Ontario Canada where I gave a full day training session to the
billing Department Staff of Bell Canada. The people were
fantastic and the day went very well.
My presentation to the Retirement homes managers and CEOS in Kirkland
Lake Ontario was not only fun and rewarding but provided my wife Carol
and I an opportunity to visit her family in Timmins for a couple of
days. The autumn colors were beautiful and the sunny, crisp
weather added to that wonderful Fall feeling one gets especially in
Canada’s north country.
Each month I write this newsletter for people who are serious about
getting into the speaking business or who just want to improve their
ability to speak in front of people. I have about 3000 people on
my subscriber list but I get the impression that only a small fraction
of my readership is seriously interested in what I have to offer.
In an effort to weed out the tire kickers I have started a new list for
those of you who really want to do well in the business of
speaking. To get your name on this list all you have to do is
send a blank email to mailto:email@example.com
You will receive a series of 9 back issues of Profitable Speaking
plus any new issue that I write. I just want to know who among
the 3000 is really serious about the business of speaking so I can give
special attention to them.
1. By far the most frequently asked question I receive is this”
How can I get more speaking jobs? Here is what you can do.
Know your subject thoroughly. Become an expert.
Be enthusiastic when delivering your presentation.
Tell stories to illustrate your key points.
Use humorous one-liners throughout your talk.
Have fun with your audience.
Over deliver great content. Give then more than they expected to
Give your audience the feeling that there is no other place you would
rather be than there with them.
Do this and watch the power of word of mouth go to work for you and
Here is another great tip.
2. Go to your phonebook and look up associations, clubs and
organizations. Identify 10 you feel that your message would
Call the numbers and ask to speak to the person in charge of booking
speakers for their monthly meetings. Make the calls with enthusiasm
even if you are dying inside.
One club I really recommend is the Rotary Club. I never get paid
to speak at their meetings but the contacts I make there are
invaluable. All members are prominent business people in your
community and if you do a great job and they like you, many will hire
you to speak to their group, business or organization for a fee of
