About this class

Public speaking has become an essential life skill. Internationally renowned keynote speaker Adam Smiley Poswolsky will share the lessons he’s learned in his journey from an unpaid storyteller to a paid professional speaker. Now, he’s regularly paid $10,000 for 30-minute presentations and wants to help you do the same. Smiley is the author of The Breakthrough Speaker: How to Build a Public Speaking Career, a groundbreaking guide for the next generation to take over the speaking industry and increase diverse representation on stage.

In this 2.5-hour workshop, Smiley will help you discover your story, craft a creative anchor to earn credibility, and align your zone of genius with a top-of-mind hook that organizations care about and are willing to invest in. He'll discuss marketing tools to spread your message and reach a wider audience, and give you tips to break into the corporate speaking industry and negotiate higher speaking fees. The practical lessons in this workshop will help experienced speakers looking to take their speaking business to the next level, as well as executives, leaders, and changemakers who want to use public speaking to gain exposure, build their personal brand, and make a greater impact in their career.
