Through my 25 year speaking career, I have had the opportunity to form close relationships with many of the top speakers bureaus in the world. They are important and invaluable partners. And with that, I always have my pinch me moments when I find myself talking with the same agents who are booking Barack and Michelle Obama, George Bush and Condoleeza Rice, Richard Branson and Magic Johnson. I’m blessed by the opportunity – but I also worked darn hard to get there.
These companies play an important and valuable role in providing companies and organizations with critical, niche oriented insight on a massive number of topics. And they too are hurting; and are working fast to reinvent their business models for this new world. The problem is that many of the folks they represent might not be moving fast enough.
With that, I filmed a number of video clips for a bunch of them to show how I’ve reinvented myself in my basement broadcast studio. Check the video below. It was filmed in one take – and has just one minor tiny edit. This particular one was for my good friends at the Washington Speakers Bureau – wsb.com. I filmed others for my many other global bureau partners.
Here’s the thing – filmed in one non-stop shot. 1 small video edit. Stage level performance! From my basement!
I’ve found my stage!
