Introduction to Professional Speaking with Josh White

Introduction to Professional Speaking with Josh White

Speaking is becoming more and more of a priority for many authors looking to grow their professional brand, so we've invited Josh White, the Managing Director of Epic Keynotes, to explain how to begin developing your speaker brand, where your book fits in, and goals to consider.

Joshua White launched Epic Keynotes to help companies and speakers leverage the full potential of speaking engagements. Epic's business model does not quantify bookings as the measure of success; instead, Epic focuses on generating the maximum impact possible for its clients. To that end, Epic works not just with thought leaders but with leaders of thought, those rare individuals who can impart something so profound that it will stay with audiences for the rest of their lives.

Over the past decade, Joshua has been at the forefront of the professional speaking industry, working with some of the world's most renowned keynote speakers and corporate clients and charting a new direction for the sector. With Epic Keynotes, he helped pioneer a new approach to booking keynote speakers, from a transactional bureau to a consultant for both corporate clients and the keynote speakers themselves.

Give an Expert Podcast Interview with Tom Schwab

Give an Expert Podcast Interview with Tom Schwab

Podcast popularity is continuing to skyrocket, allowing more and more thought leaders and authors to showcase their expertise to niche audiences and listeners. On this episode of All Things Book Marketing, Founder and Chief Evangelist Officer at Interview Valet Tom Schwab provides insights into how to give an expert interview including how to arrange your background, the equipment you'll need, and tips to talk like a pro.

Tom Schwab believes the best things in life come from conversations. It’s these powerful, sometimes awkward conversations that propel us from where we are personally and professionally to where we dream of being.

As an engineer, a Navy Veteran, and Nuclear Propulsion Plant Operator, Tom thinks differently. Tough Minded, Skeptical, sometimes even Cantankerous, but always technically competent, always thinking – “What if”, is how the head of the Nuclear Navy described it.

As a small business owner and entrepreneur, he understands the unique challenges of business owners. This led him to be an early pioneer of using inbound marketing for eCommerce and targeted podcast interviews for marketing that connects.

Tom is the author of two books: Podcast Guest Profits: Grow Your Business with a Targeted Interview Strategy, called the bible of podcast guesting and One Conversation Away: A manifesto for a rich life and a profitable business. You can learn more at interviewvalet.com/bookmarketing.
