One of SA’s top Global Business Speaker, Billy Selekane was recently a guest speaker at our Pretoria Chapter meeting. We were all super excited in anticipation to hearing from one of thee top most sort after International speaker who had agreed to share his pearls of wisdom with us. We had a record number of members in attendance and the evening was lit from the word go, with a delicious dinner of beef stew and a sensational peppermint tart for dessert.
Billy’s grand opening was very profound, illustrating that abundance cannot be attained because it is already there. It’s a state of mind. His topic for the evening was Million Dollar Speaker Blue Print. It was about building a sustainable speaking business that will remain relevant and create value for the audience. The 5 principles he shared with us were; Speaker Essence, Global Opportunities, Business Model, Niches to follow and Digital Selling, and how to package all them to create a compelling long-term value proposition for your clients. He placed a lot of emphasis on the customer experience and making videos.
My Aha moment was realizing that you don’t become a million dollar$$ speaker from only just speaking. The key take away was to leverage on other services such as coaching, facilitation, consulting and digital products. It was inspiring to learn that we should not just aim to be speakers but to build speaking enterprises!!
In closing, Billy challenged us to start our path of becoming million dollar speakers by having 10 speaking engagements in the next 4 weeks leading up to our next chapter meeting in September. The session with Billy was very engaging and an eye opener on the many opportunities available within the speaking business.
