Just came from a speakers showcase with Five Star Speakers and Trainers in Chicago, Illinois. (This is an event where buyers from many industries come to see a sample of several speakers’ speeches.
It was a fun event…. we had plenty of laughs. But to be honest, the best part was hanging out with the other speakers. Motivational. Inspirational. High Tech. Emotional Intelligence. Personality experts. A bunch of great people… it was a fun trip.
A couple of my favorites were there: Mike Rayburn and Michael C. Anthony. They are both total pros (and are in my 2nd book, Humor Us) and both of them did a great job. Mike is a comedian and killer musician, and Michael C. Anthony is a hypnotist, magician speaker, and just generally good guy. Both of them are fun and funny, and totally pros.
