Become a Standout Speaker with Visibility Tips with Antoniette Roze

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing speaker booking expert Antoniette Roze on my podcast. She shared invaluable insights into how to become a successful speaker and podcast guest that can truly move audiences. In this post, I’ll dive deeper into some of Antoniette’s most impactful strategies.

Focus on Audience Value, Not Yourself 

One thing Antoniette couldn’t stress enough – your focus must be on the value you will provide to the audience, not on yourself. When pitching opportunities, answer the question “Are you a sure bet to bring transformation?” rather than talking about your own resume. Speak to the ultimate promise and outcome audiences will experience if they hear your message. 

Research, Research, Research

To truly connect with audiences, you must understand them inside and out. Do in-depth research on the host, event theme, likely attendees. Connect with some attendees beforehand if possible. Ask questions to learn their language and needs. This level of care and preparation is what separates great speakers who audiences remember from mediocre ones they forget. 

Start Locally for Experience

The best way to get started is locally – your own community is a great low-pressure place to gain experience and data. Speak for local podcasts, clubs, and organizations to build your skills. And don’t forget – every opportunity, whether paid or not, grows your abilities if done well. Treat every audience with importance.

Focus on Transformations, Not Words

As Antoniette pointed out, people rarely remember exactly what you said. But they do remember how you made them feel. Focus on bringing micro-transformations even in short moments. Your authenticity and ability to connect emotionally will be remembered far more than words.
