Professional Speaker or Just Pitchman?

Brad Gosse

Have you dealt with a seminar speaker who made you angry? Plenty of “public speakers” out there are amazing at what they do. They inspire, motivate and educate you. But a few douchebags ruin it for those of us who try to deliver value.

If you are a speaker take notice. Don’t treat your audience like a room full of wallets. Stop making us stand up, scream shit out loud or say YES 20 times before you try to get them to sign up to your “better” seminar.

People are not stupid, your audience is not a heard of cattle. Stop treating them like hypnotized monkeys.
