Some weirdos at Athletepromotions.com probably harvested my name somewhere on the Internet and claim they represent me as my agents for events, promotions, appearances. This is bullshit. Just to make clear.
I don’t have any contract, relationship nor acquaintance with these people. You want to hire me? fine, this is my email: email@example.com. That’s it.
After “An Open Letter to Conference Organizers“, Scott Berkun published a very interesting “Open Letter To Speakers“. If you are a speaker at any public event, I’d suggest you to read it:
Your mistakes on stage are your own fault. You are a performer. Good performers don’t blame their tools. If your laptop flakes out, or your movie won’t play, you are responsible. If you have special needs, let the organizers know early and ask for a rehearsal. If you can’t get one, simplify. If at the rehearsal the tech guy is on drugs, or the organizer seems overwhelmed, simplify. It’s your show and you will be judged regardless of where you point fingers. Practice and prepare accordingly. Have a simple 5/10 minute fallback version of your talk you can do even if the there’s no electricity.
You can find the entire letter on Scott’s blog. You can also follow Scott on Twitter and I strongly suggest to read his books. Enjoy!
SpeakerWiki is a very nice wiki about public speakers.
