If booking paid speaking engagements is on your radar, I cannot even begin to prepare you for the absolute fire in this episode. Precious L. Williams, an award winning sales trainer, 4x bestselling author, and Killer Pitch Master is on the podcast to share all the expertise no one tells you about pitching yourself as a speaker, showing up for your attendees authentically, and connecting with your audience after the talk is over. This episode is a motivational AF masterclass from an absolute queen of public speaking. 

Precious L. Williams is a 13-time national elevator pitch champion. She has also been featured on "Shark Tank," CNN, WSJ, Forbes Magazine, Black Enterprise Magazine, Essence Magazine, and the movie "LEAP." Her current clients include Microsoft, LinkedIn, Google, eBay, and more!

 Some key takeaways on pitching yourself as a speaker from the Killer Pitch Master herself:

  • You need to stand out from even the most recognizable faces. Precious isn’t just a “sales trainer,” she’s the “Killer Pitch Master.” She wanted people to know exactly what she brings to the table and built a brand around that to stay at the top of her field.
  • Think about the topics you would like to speak about. Write out your thoughts on these topics and infuse your personality, your uniqueness, and your experience into them. As Precious says “If you’re regurgitating what the gurus are saying… good luck.” What experience do you have that makes you stand out?
  • Get yourself on LinkedIn. It’s full of the companies that are willing to hire you if you’re willing to show up and show out as yourself on the platform. When you ask someone to make a warm introduction between you and a corporate contact for speaking, prep that person on how to warmly introduce you.
