How to Land a Game-Changing Speaking Gig

How to Land a Game-Changing Speaking Gig

This constant fight for people's attention online has made growing a business harder than it’s ever been before. Most companies adopt a splatter gun approach to their online marketing. Churning out photos, blog posts and videos clinging onto the hope that just one of them might go viral and give them the global exposure they crave. It's expensive, time-consuming and impersonal; but most importantly of all, it's unnecessary. Join Alex Merry, speaker coach and Curator of TEDxClapham* in London to show you how to land, write and deliver one talk that will give you and your business long term, global exposure. Alex used public speaking to turn a small London start-up he was co-running into an award-winning, 250-person strong company raising over £12.5 million along the way. At the event, I'll be showing you exactly how to: - Identify and develop a valuable idea - Find incredible speaking opportunities - Pitch your talk to event organisers across the world - Write a talk that will position you as a thought-leader - Use your talk to start a global movement Alex will share his insights not just as a speaker coach that has worked with globally recognised business leaders, best-selling authors, philanthropists, members of the military and a former world champion boxer, but also as someone who gives experts the opportunity to speak on the TEDxClapham stage. When he's not helping the people land gigs on the big stage, Alex is advising them on writing and delivering talks that build brands, raise finance, increase sales, start movements, lobby governments and transform businesses, creating globally recognised industry leaders along the way. Done right, speeches change lives but don't just take his word for it: --- "Thanks to Alex, my talk was the 5th most watched TEDx talk of 2016 and is now in the top 100 most-watched TEDx talks of all time. That one speech has given me valuable connections from around the world." Roger Frampton, Model and CEO. “If you are looking to accelerate your business, brand or cause through public speaking, Alex is the guy to do just that.” Brian Rose, CEO, London Real. "So it seems like you taught me well and that I have got the hang of this speaking thing, I got a bloody standing ovation yesterday. Apparently, it was the first standing ovation they’ve ever had!" Whitney Iles, CEO of Project 507. --- At this one-off masterclass, Alex will be showcasing his formula for landing speaking engagements that get you noticed globally, regardless of whether you're a first-time speaker or seasoned speaker that wants better results.
