Speaking has always been a great client-generation strategy, and with the massive move to virtual meetings, this opportunity has multiplied exponentially. But how do you keep your audience’s attention and attract new clients from speaking, instead of it being just a frustrating waste of time?

Join us and our feature presenter, Mary Cravets, as she discusses how to avoid “audiences love me but don’t hire me” syndrome, 8 simple, creative engagement strategies to keep you audience excited and engaged, and Strategies for implementing the 3 Steps so speaking virtually brings a steady stream of revenue and grows your business.
