RT @CMIContent: We'll spend the last 10 minutes asking @jcolman questions on speakers & content marketing. Ask your questions now! #CMWorld
A8: I’ve seen great speakers who don’t know/care to market themselves. Makes me sad because I want them to speak more. #CMWorld
A8: That means there’s a niche market that savvy speakers (like YOU!) can capture. #CMWorld
A7: I've watched hundreds of people speak. I've picked up tips from ALL of them. Stand-up comics are the best. #CMWorld
A7: PRO-Tip for speakers: develop your own authentic style. Watch other speakers to get ideas #CMWorld
A7: But no one can copy my presentation delivery—it’s too authentically me. #CMWorld
A7: If folks copy my style or ideas, great—I’m geeked to have influenced them. #CMWorld
A7: I’m not worried about folks copying my presentation design or tactics—in fact, I *want* them to! #CMWorld
A7: All of my presentations on SlideShare are available not just for viewing, but for DOWNLOAD. Anyone can grab them. #CMWorld
A7: Don't hold anything back. Give people what they want. #CMWorld
A7: The whole point of speaking (not to mention content marketing) is to educate, inform, and inspire. #CMWorld
A7: I wouldn’t worry about that—just GIVE IT AWAY. Or “Let it Go”, if you will. #frozen #CMWorld
A6: Being present online/offline during an event is a promise I make to organizers to give them additional value. #CMWorld
A6: When I do a talk, it’s about giving attendees a great experience. That doesn’t end after the talk. #CMWorld
A6: PRO-Tip: Have the humility to know that you’re not perfect. Anything you build can be improved. #CMWorld
