Tips

Be Bold.  That's one tip Robert wished he knew when he began speaking in front of audiences. Messing up happens because we're all human, he suggests you turn it into a joke and keep moving on.

He uses himself and his own history to find the stories that will relate to the audience. Listen as he explains how he breaks out a story to vary what's needed. People connect at the heart level, so what you use depends on your audience.

On speaking for free:  when you're beginning as a speaker,  you have a passion for the audience, or if your career is shifting from one space to another, speaking for free is an option. However, if you have a long history in a niche, with much to share with audiences, then perhaps speaking for a fee is a better choice.

The biggest tip Robert says is not a secret: it's to practice. And surround yourself with people who are smarter than you.
