Gilda's chapter, "Improv Rules! Five Ways to Make Your Speeches More Powerful and Engaging," appears in the new book, Paid To Speak: Best Practices For Building A Successful Speaking Business (affiliate link)

Covering every aspect of launching, building, and maintaining a successful speaking career, Paid to Speak is a must-read for professional speakers--whether keynote speaker, motivator, coach, trainer, facilitator, or consultant--as well as those aspiring to a speaking career.

Gilda's chapter, "Improv Rules! Five Ways to Make Your Speeches More Powerful and Engaging," is based on her experience as a professional speaker and as a founding member of the World Class Indifference improv comedy team, which for the past six years has performed comedy shows and taught classes in New York City and Connecticut. She incorporates improv techniques into her speaking, training and coaching, helping people learn to think quickly, be creative and develop confidence.

Paid to Speak is divided into four sections to correspond to the four core competencies that the National Speakers Association (NSA) has identified for success as a professional speaker:
  • Eloquence: platform mechanics, presenting, and preparing
  • Enterprise: business management, sales, and marketing
  • Expertise: topic development, authorship, and product development
  • Ethics: professional awareness and professional development
Thirty-four working NSA members who have built thriving speaking businesses weigh in with valuable insights and proven strategies on a gamut of topics, making Paid to Speak essential to any speaker's list of reference materials.

Read Paid to Speak from cover to cover, or open it to any chapter, for tried-and-true, hands-on information on taking your speaking career--and your bank account--to the next level.
