Rick Frishman- President of Planned TV Arts in New York City http://www.plannedtvarts.com taught a course last night to 50 members of the New York Chapter of the National Speakers Association.
Tips that everyone should know....
- Every speaker and CEO needs to learn how to become an author
- Publicity can make you as famous and rich as you like
- Never- ever go on a radio show or TV show until you have been trained by a professional media trainer. Ever day business people, CEO's, politicians shoot themselves in the foot by trying to be funny on the media (Yes we all can think of a politician who fits that bill recently)
Some rules of the road - according to Frishman
1- Have 5 main points for every interview- put them on index cards
2- Take control of the interview
3- Don't wait for them to ask you the right question
4- Learn how to segue-or bridge to the point that you want to make
5- Remember - Nothing is off the record
6- Teach - don't sell.
7- Give people 3 things to do today that will change their life
8- Have enthusiasm. Passion persuades.
9- Be funny- Your job is to be smart- and to entertain.
10- Watch what you say.... Remember "closed mouth gathers no foot"
in other words - when in doubt... shut up"
Food for thought for every part of our life
