How to Position Yourself as an Expert

With Chris Ducker

One of the most important things you can for your speaking career is to find out how to position yourself as an expert. And I could think of no one better to describe and demonstrate this topic than my good friend Chris Ducker.

Chris is an internationally-recognized expert on all things personal branding. He’s also a best-selling author, globe-trotting speaker, and successful business mentor. He knows more than a thing or two about standing out as an expert!

On today’s show, we’re talking about his latest book, Rise of the Youpreneur as well as the origins of Chris’s speaking career and his personal brand. He also explains why you should want to become someone’s favorite and how to grow your personal brand beyond the stage. Listen to those great topics and more with me and Chris Ducker today on episode 175 of The Speaker Lab!
