Learn How to Book More Speaking Engagements

Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — Business speaker, Patrick Schwerdtfeger, is once again offering his acclaimed Keynote Mastery program for aspiring speakers, this time in a virtual format. The program will include four weekly presentations via conference call (as well as accompanying PDF worksheets) and a fifth call reserved exclusively for questions and answers. The cost is $249 and interested parties are requested to register for the program here.

Patrick earns about 80% of his income from speaking fees and the remainder from book sales. He has spoken at conferences and conventions across the United States and Canada as well as destinations in Mexico, the Cayman Islands, Aruba, Sweden, Finland, Portugal, the Middle East and India. Meanwhile, his career had modest beginnings. He spoke at 47 Rotary Clubs in 2008 and contributed to a total of 72 events that year. He only got paid for two of them. Since then, he leveraged online and offline marketing strategies to build his career from the ground up.

Keynote Mastery is a training course developed my Patrick Schwerdtfeger to help aspiring speakers develop their careers. The course focuses on keynote speaking (getting paid a fee to speak at an event) as opposed to platform speaking (selling products or services from the stage). No part of the course deals with product development or platform selling. Instead, Keynote Mastery teaches its students what is required to secure paid speaking engagements.
