Summary transcript for 5 Jan 2012 #AWCchat: paid speaking
Thanks to everyone who participated in our fifth #AWCChat on Twitter.
There were four questions for discussion during this chat:
1) Let’s say you have an offer to speak for 1 hour at a conference, for pay. What do you charge?
2) When is it good business to speak for free, or for pay that’s way below your usual rate?
3) Event organizers will want a bio, head shot photo and title/description of your presentation. What tips do you have for each to shine?
4) Does speaking really convert into actual sales of your products or services? Or does it just bring more speaking gigs?
** On Chirpstory – the summary transcript for 5 Jan chat on becoming a pro speaker. This edition is stuffed with extra resource links about speaking, too.
The next #AWCChat is scheduled for 12 January 2012. Topic: Writing for the Web: Why Bullets, Lists and Top 10s Aren’t Crummy “Communications Lite”
Thanks for your support of the AWC (Association for Women in Communications) community.
