LEAVING A GOOD JOB TO START YOUR SPEAKER BUSINESS
Welcome to our monthly mySpeakerBusiness community call!
Today, meet John Zimmer, a 7-time European champion of Toastmasters public speaking contests and one of our precious mySpeakerBusiness authors.
John’s experiences are priceless. Not only did he build this bridge for himself pretty recently… from his good job at the WHO to his full-time speaker business. He also did it in a powerful and very promising way. Do you want to find out how John build this bridge and what he learned along the way?
Then get great insights from John as he speaks about
- How and why he started his speaker business; and how you can find the answers to these fundamental questions for yourself
- How his blog helped him to get great speaking gigs internationally
- What his first regular paid speaking engagement was and how he secured it
- Why it is important to collaborate with others and how it helped him in great ways to make the big jump.
Today, John Zimmer is an internationally recognized professional speaker and expert on public speaking, presentation skills, interpersonal communication, influence and persuasion. Even before he became a full-time professional, he has collected lots of public speaking and presentation experience in a variety of business and legal forums over the last 25 years.
And, did you know? Besides speaking English and French fluently, John is also conversant in Arabic, Italian and German. And, John is the co-creator of the fab Rhetoric – The Public Speaking Game™. He also writes a popular blog about public speaking – mannerofspeaking.org – which, in 2014, was chosen by Prezi as one of the Top 100 Online Resources Every Presenter Should See.
It is my real pleasure to have John Zimmer with us next Tuesday, and I am sure you will take away many golden nuggets on how to build this solid bridge for yourself … so that you become an even more recognized professional speaker and you share your message with the world.
