This may be the most irritating question I’ve heard over the past 20 years at the National Speakers Association. Speakers should be the most self-motivated people in the room. This is one of the major differences between true performers and people that can only talk a good game, and make no mistake: our profession is full of posers. Audiences can sense a phony a mile away, and thats why so many new speakers fail to succeed in this business. Watch this short (4 min.) video I taped in the my office at the Mansion and I’ll look forward to your comments.
