Catapult your entry into the lucrative, exciting and rewarding world of Professional Speaking using the skills you already have.
Contents & Background to “Magically Speaking”
When I started this project I asked several prominent magicians who had made the transition into Professional Speaking for their ideas on how it could be done. I also asked two of the best known and most highly respected Speaker Coaches in the USA for their thoughts and tips on breaking into the business. I also asked a very well known Speaker Bureaux owner for her ideas.
“As with any new endeavour, when you first start out, you sometimes don’t even know what you don’t know. This Masterclass will point you in the right direction and accelerate you through the first steps.”
Some responded with specifically written pieces. Others gave us permission to reprint articles from their acclaimed books on the subject. To this material I have added my own thoughts and experiences after 15 years exploring this market niche.
Some of the questions answered in this MasterClass
- What should a Speaker have in their Promotional Press Kit?
- Do you know the questions a Bureau will ask you if you approach one?
- What are the 7 Keys that will ignite Hot interest in booking you?
- How do you choose a Topic?

- What is the most powerful question you can ask a potential client?
- Which Speaker ezines are the best to subscribe to?(There are lots out there but we will point out the essential ones)
- Should I join the National Speakers Association?

- And much much more!
