The Program:

The market for professional speakers becomes more competitive each year. And many event organizers aren’t even looking for “speakers” any longer. They’re producing fewer live programs.

And they don’t want speakers; they want experts — actually they want thought leaders. Quasi-celebrities who help put butts in seats. But you don’t become a thought leader simply by adding the title to your website or bio. You have to create both the intellectual property and market gravity to be perceived as one.

In this powerful session, you’ll learn what thought leadership really requires, why it’s important, and exactly how you become one. And you’ll discover the importance of developing your unique intellectual property.

You will learn:

  • why you should never call yourself a thought leader
  • the importance of developing intellectual property (IP)
  • how to keep ownership of the IP you develop for clients
  • what thought leaders actually do
  • the vital distinction between first-person and third-person positioning
  • what makes you a thought leader!
