I've been interested in speaking for a long time and began studying speaking some years ago but it wasn't until recently that things started to click. I came across a well known speaker who offers seminars and teaching tools for those interested in speaking. He's also a member of the National Speakers Association.
James Malinchak is his name and he's offering 2 special seminars in May – one in Florida and one in Los Angeles. I highly recommend James. He's been a featured speaker at Mark Victor Hansens Mega Speaking event and has teamed up with James Canfield on several occasions. You can check out his seminar –here– and you'll get a free gift for doing so.
