Description


You have a powerful message to share with audiences and a burning passion to jump up on stage and do just that.

But where and how do you start? And then: how do you get an agent?

SpeakerSavvy was written with both the aspiring and established speaker in mind. It’s a comprehensive, down-to-earth guide on starting or taking your speaking business to the next level.

In her light-hearted, pull-no-punches style, bureau owner Bronwyn Hesketh tells it like it is. Bound to ruffle a few feathers, the book is designed to help speakers avoid the pitfalls of the speaking industry while giving them solid advice on what she has seen work (and NOT work) over her 20 years in the industry.

If you are keen to shave a few years off your learning curve as a Professional Speaker, this is the book for you.

 

“Wisdom from the Dark Side”

There are so many people who dream of being a professional speaker. It is an industry that appears to be easy to access. That may be the perception, but there is so much more to it. Bronwyn’s book shines a light on the mystery of the industry. She highlights the good parts and the parts that we would prefer to ignore. This book makes for compelling reading – you will find yourself chuckling more than once. You will emerge with a realistic picture of how to work with a speaker’s bureau. More than that, you will have insights that will prevent you wasting both time and money. If you are serious about becoming a professional speaker, Speaker Savvy is an investment in your future career!

About Bronwyn

Having had 13 different jobs in just about as many industries before she turned 26, Bronwyn says that when she “stumbled across and fell into” the professional speaking circuit it was “like coming home”, and this typical Gen X’er – who gets bored easily and quickly once the challenge of any job has been mastered – hasn’t looked back.

She tells people that she’s never been bored, that no-one day is ever like another; that she doesn’t have a job, but an adventure … and the challenge is yet to be mastered! With more than twenty years’ experience with the South African speaking industry, heading up one of the country’s leading Speaker Agencies for the last eighteen, Bronwyn has worked with every top speaker in the country.

She was a founder member of the PSASA (the Professional Speakers Association of Southern Africa), having sat on the board for nearly two years (the only agent to ever sit on such a board in the world, apparently, in her capacity as bureau principal, and not as a speaker) and worked hard with founding president Stef du Plessis and fellow board members to get the Association off the ground.
