Reviews by Speakers

  • Koushik S

    "It's a great read, less than 30 minutes, that captures the essence of what it takes to get paid for being a professional speaker. I would view this as a checklist for rereading as many times, as professional speakers and aspiring speakers build their brand and speaking businesses."

  • Bhagyanath Menon

    "The author has neatly summarised not only on how to get paid for one's professional speaking skills, as the title suggests,

    but also how to hone your skills to be an enthralling speaker. The various tools mentioned in the book can also be effectively

    utilised by non speakers in one's area of specialisation, albeit with some modification.

    So this book has a larger canvas than speakers and is a must for general reading.

    Awaiting many more such ventures the stable of Mr. Pravin Shekar."

    "Pravin's book is slim, crisp and to-the-point. It covers the essentials, without wasting time in verbiage. Think of this book as a start-up kit for anyone who wants to

    become a professional speaker and is willing to take action towards that goal. From finding topics to speak

    about to building a strong presence in the market, it covers various aspects in the right amount of detail. I strongly recommend it."

    "Pravin Shekar is a passionate speaker and someone who has successfully cracked the 'professional' part of speaking. He comes

    under the #DoersAsSpeaker, a category of special people I have respect for as they have demonstrated each of the principles espoused in this book.

    If you are a speaker and want to make money from your speaking, you must read this book. It's an hour of your time very well spent."
