How to land SPEAKING GIGS That Position You as an Expert and INCREASE YOUR REVENUE
You Want To Get Up On That Stage. But You've Got A Lot Of Questions!
Am I enough of an expert to be a public speaker? 
What should I talk about?
Where do I find speaking gigs?
How do I put together a speech that will keep my audience engaged?
And how do I leverage my speaking engagement to land clients and other opportunities?

Whether you're building a platform for a book release, trying to get in front of potential clients or simply want to establish yourself as an expert, public speaking is an excellent way to achieve your goals!
I know, because I've been speaking for eight years and have achieved all of those things through my time on the stage - in addition to getting PAID to speak!
Hi there, future public speaker!
Right now, you’re trying to figure out how to stand out from the crowd so you can get in front of more potential clients and customers and grow your business.

You want to write for national publications, be quoted in newspapers and magazines and appear on television and radio – but you have no idea how to start landing those opportunities. 

Sound familiar? 

I’m Kristi Dosh, and I help entrepreneurs and authors position themselves as experts and become more visible for that expertise so they can achieve their business and revenue goals. 

What do I know about becoming an expert and getting more visible? 

I began my career as a corporate attorney who happened to have a little blogging hobby. Since I began that blog eight years ago, I’ve landed two book deals, countless guest blogs, feature articles with major publications like Glamour and Men’s Health, dozens of (paid!) speaking engagements all over the country, and numerous national radio and television interviews. 

I even got hired away from my law practice by ESPN to be a sports business analyst five years ago, and now I write for Forbes. 

So, ya know . . . I sort of get what it takes to be visible and how to leverage that to snag awesome opportunities. 

I work with a wide variety of entrepreneurs and authors, ranging from a doctor with a skincare line to a cookbook author. But all my clients have something in common – they all came to me because they’d hit a plateau in their business and didn’t know how to continue to up level.

The cure for this common ailment? Getting yourself in front of more potential clients and customers and showing them what you do! 

Because it doesn’t matter how good you are at what you do if no one knows you do it. 

"Kristi Dosh’s new program is LIFE CHANGING. Within a month of implementing her tips, I was asked to speak at three schools, had two more pending, and was offered a weekly local radio show. I also landed FIVE podcast and radio appearances. Thank you, Kristi! You changed my life!"

Dr. Rob Garcia, 
CEO of Blue Dragon Enterprises and SHIFT Magazine

"I asked Kristi to help me begin to build my 
brand as an expert in digital integration. She began to revamp my LinkedIn profile to 
position me as a speaker and gave me some 
steps for success. Within three months, I had landed my first three speaking engagements 
with opportunities for more. Thanks to these speaking engagements, I'm now working with 
2 companies on how to develop digital 
integration business models within their 
existing model."

#1 You literally stand out from the crowd
Here’s why public speaking is a slam dunk: so few people do it, that it can be really easy to make a name for yourself and establish yourself as an expert in your field. Instead of fighting to be seen and heard on Facebook or your blog, you can get out and meet people in person and have every eye in the crowd on you, people hanging on your every word.
#2 It establishes you as an expert
Just by virtue of being up on that stage, people will consider you an expert – even if you don’t feel like one. It’s one of those things, like having a book published, that so few people can claim that it’s assumed you’re knowledgeable and important.

Don’t psych yourself out because you feel like a fraud. Everyone I’ve ever coached on public speaking has felt like that in the beginning – and so did I. Just remember that you don’t have to be the world’s foremost expert on the topic, you only have to be one step ahead of your audience in order to teach them something new.
#3 You can travel the world – or at least the country
One of my perks of public speaking is getting paid to travel all over the country and discover new cities and towns. I often negotiate to stay an extra day or two so I can explore the area, and I’ve even flown my husband in so we can stay through a weekend if it’s somewhere really exciting.

I’ve been public speaking since 2008, and it’s taken me to 18 different states (some more than once) and the District of Columbia.
#4 It’s a revenue generator
Public speaking can generate revenue for you and your business in a few different ways. The most obvious, of course, is when you get a speaking fee. 

Before I ever received my first speaking fee, however, I generated revenue from selling my book before or after the event. I was able to order the book from my publisher at 50% off and then turn around and sell it for list price and keep the difference. It was an incredibly successful model for me, because I chose the right audiences for my book.

In more recent years, I've been able to earn additional revenue from coaching sessions I book around my speaking engagement. I try to stay in a city for at least a couple of days so I can offer appointments for people who want to work with me 1:1 in person. I offer those through my social media channels before I travel, and I’m usually booked solid.

And last, but not least – if you’re in front of the right audience, you can snag long-term clients who follow up with you after your speaking engagement.
