On today's episode of The Speaker Lab, I have the privilege of talking with one of my very own Booked and Paid to Speak students, Melanie Deziel.

Melanie is currently beginning her speaking business, and offers a unique perspective as she starts her journey. She's as adventurous in beginning a new speaking career as she is in other aspects of her work - she is preparing to go to New Zealand for a job! She shares about that too on today.

On this edition Melanie also shares how speaking fits into her current position as a content strategist, what her first speaking experience was and how it sparked her interest in making a career move into more speaking opportunities.

In addition she offers her guidance on how to tweak small aspects for each client, and why she enjoys speaking even though she's introverted. Listen in to hear all of that and so much more on this episode of The Speaker Lab!
