Confident. Credible. Accurate. These are some of the traits that we often look for in a remarkable speaker, not to mention well-paid one. We all have our standard and opinion about what makes a good speaker that deserves our time, applause, and hard-earned money. With all the criteria and different viewpoints about this matter, what does it really take to be a well-paid keynote speaker?
Today, I explain the difference between a paid keynote speaker and a free one. I discuss the impact of having general opinions and points of view versus specific ones, how to reinforce the value that you bring to your industry as well as the significance of being intentional in accurately representing yourself. I also share strategies on how to effectively transition from being a free speaker to a paid one and explain the significance of positioning yourself preeminently to establish credibility and attract great speaking opportunities.
“The difference between a paid speaker and a free speaker – it’s actually not a difference at all. It’s a decision.” – Eleanor Beaton

Fierce Leadership Quotes:
- “The first thing you need to do is make the decision that you are a well-paid keynote speaker. That decision has to start with you. The market isn’t going to tell you. You need to own that.” – Eleanor Beaton
- “Your message is so clear; you are so strong in what you stand for that that enables you to represent something distinct and powerful in the mind of somebody else.” – Eleanor Beaton
- “The results that you’ve helped people achieve, the wins that you’ve been part of, the awards that you have won – these are more important than certifications.” – Eleanor Beaton
