Welcome to another edition of The Speaker Lab. Today I’m talking with Hugh Culver; he is a dear friend from Canada who is an accomplished speaker and a speaking coach. He knows the world of speaking and he’s here to give us the goods!

On this episode we talk about how to make your name known in the speaking world, how he became a speaker and how you can niche down to make your business bigger – plus so much more.
