You're a speaker and know your stuff inside and out. But do you really know how to brand your particular area of expertise and market yourself to media outlets? Each time you appear on a talk show, in a blog, on a webisode, radio show or podcast, you are building your media profile, and that helps to make you much more attractive as a speaker. As a media coach and consultant, Valerie Smaldone has worked with dozens of otherwise fabulous experts who need help in not only communicating their material effectively, but also creating compelling content to stand out in a crowded field.
