Becoming a Referable Speaker

With Michael Port and Andrew Davis

Joining us to explain the process of becoming a referable speaker is the dynamite duo of Michael Port and Andrew Davis.

On today’s The Speaker Lab, we talk about their latest book, The Referable Speaker. We also discuss what a referable speaker is and how to become one before diving into how they test out new speech material and the biggest mistake speakers make when starting out.

You’ll hear those topics and more when you tune in for the 355th edition of The Speaker Lab.
