What is an Average day for a Public Speaker Giving 200 Talks a Year?
By Sean Si
Jayson’s schedule is not that consistent. There are times when his schedule is filled to the brim and there are times when there’s nothing but rest. Rest is something that Jayson values. He needs it.Even if he doesn’t have anything scheduled, he still needs to do many things—mostly preparations.He prepares for multiple talks in advance. The complicated part is making sure that they’re compatible with the audience. Sometimes, he’ll have several talks on the same topic, but with people of different industries and levels, so the context will be different. In Jayson’s mind, preparation is the secret of a great talk.Previously, he would even film himself as he delivered his talks privately. He’ll watch it, then judge what needs to be improved.Often he’ll integrate new material in his smaller talks, but for the bigger ones, he prefers to stick with his ole’ reliable, the ones that he knows in and out.
