Marketing motivational speaking and advertising speech are an easy way to get into the public speaking arena. Because people do not like public speaking you will have an advantage.
To get there it will take work. Are you read to go to work?
All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.

In House Speakers Bureaus
Start your search by looking for corporate in-house speakers bureaus.
If you are an expert on a subject these bureaus will often pay both in house and outside speakers to deliver their information. They are looking for someone who has expertise with their product or service to provide a marketing speech.
An example is the pharmaceutical companies. They pay doctors and nurses to speak on their behalf regarding their products and services. Who better to speak about a something than someone who has worked in the trenches with the product.
Toshiba has created a big marketing coup using this method to market on of their scanning machines. The sales speeches are not by sales personnel but doctors and the people who use the machines and love them.
They are perfect because of their ability to speak from experience. The marketing motivational speaking is coming from happy consumers of their product.
Many Universities have speaker’s bureaus for their staff both present and past.
To find out if a corporation has a speaker’s bureau, start with a internet search. Then do a industry sector search. Finally do some cold calling and ask around the industry where one would go to find a speaker. Chances are you will find a bureau.
