Nothing makes you an authority like being an author. The highest speaking fees and the best consulting gigs go to people with books. With a book, you can reach people who will never have the chance to hear you speak.
If you’re a successful speaker, you already have what you need to become an author: expertise and a compelling way to present it to an audience. You’re already doing one of the best things an author can do to promote a book: speaking in public. Every presentation you give is an opportunity for back-of-room sales. Publishers love this.
Author-izer and Collabowriter Sallie Goetsch shows you how to take your presentations, trainings, workshops, and keynote speeches and turn them into a book. If you can speak, you can write. What are you waiting for?
Join the Business Speakers by the Bay on November 4, 2005 to learn:
- How to overcome the obstacles to writing
- How to write without writing
- Why publishers want authors who are speakers
- New ways to use speaking to promote your book
Because the venue is a bit noisy, I may not be able to record the presentation. Besides, it’s so much more fun to do these things in person. And we want everyone to benefit from the experiences of other Bay Area speakers with authoring and promoting books.
