How To Book Your First Speaking Gig with Alexia Vernon

JillBlog3 Comments

Imagine this…

You're on stage, delivering a killer talk to an audience filled with your dream customers.

You're in the flow, you can see the audience responding to what you're saying and when you're done, they ERUPT into mad applause and a stream of people flock to connect with you.

It sounds like a sought-after entrepreneur and speaker's dream, right?

But what if you've never delivered a talk before?

What if you know you want to do it, but you have no clue how to do it?

And what if you just straight up have no idea how to even book your first speaking gig?

Ooooof! I so feel you!

In fact, I remember when I tried to pitch myself to speak at Social Media Marketing World and it was a total failure.

I mean, I went in cold, I didn't know anything about the organizer and I didn't have any examples on hand to show them when they asked.

*face palm *

It was brutal.

Pair that with the fact that I had anxiety-ridden fear of speaking in front of people and I was just a giant mess.

Which is how I found Alexia Vernon.

You see, Lex has been on the speaking scene for over 15 years now!

And not just that but she's been on CNN (plus a slew of other networks), featured in all sorts of publications (Forbes and Inc, anyone?) and recognized by The White House.

Yeah. The freakin' White House!

So if there is anyone I feel confident in bringing onto the Screw to talk about speaking at live events and building that skill set, it's her.

And in this wildly-helpful masterclass Lex is breaking down precisely what you can do to land your first speaking gig, how to position yourself as an authority AND how to sell from the stage in a way that is classy and not pushy.

If you know you want to get your message out there in a big way and you know that you need to improve your communication skills, you're gonna want to give this a watch.
