When I speak, most of the work happens months prior. Tailoring my keynote for a conference takes a great deal of time and care. When this is reflected back, it reinforces my focus on taking care before, during and after an event. Which is all part of being a professional speaker. This morning I received a testimonial from a conference I spoke at last month.
“Our entire team and network thoroughly enjoyed John’s Keynote on ‘Creating a Strategic Mindset’ at our recent National Conference. John connected extremely well with the audience and made the often-challenging topic of strategy easy to understand and apply, at both a business and personal level. John’s level of care and professionalism in preparing for our event was also excellent.” Peter Hedge – National Accredited Dealer Manager, B&D Doors.
