James Malinchak Shows Speakers How to Build Rapport with Audiences

LAS VEGAS, Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Speakers can create immediate rapport with their audiences if they tell their personal story well, says James Malinchak, a motivational business keynote speaker, http://www.JamesMalinchak.com

"Your bio sets the stage for the rest of the evening," said Malinchak who teaches speakers how to build a successful business at http://www.BigMoneySpeaker.com   

"Hour after hour, night after night, speakers stare at the computer screen and draw a complete blank when they try to write their bios. Writing a bio should be easy when you know what to do," said Malinchak who was the only business motivational speaker featured on the hit ABC TV Show, Secret Millionaire, which is available at Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/James-Malinchak-Gary-IN/dp/B0050NA50C

He recommends:

  • Be brief. A long bio is painful and boring.
  • WOW the audience with something shocking, funny, poignant or bizarre. 
  • Create credibility. Let them know what you know, where you have been, and what you have experienced. Highlight your expertise.
  • Show your celebrity status with pictures of you with other celebrities, endorsements by famous people and show them your media coverage, books and videos.

"Your bio helps the audience get to know you. It is very valuable," he said. "Show them where you started out from. For example, I say, "I grew up in a small steel-mill town near Pittsburgh, PA." Then intertwine your successful business background, add the credibility and celebrity. You can add a quote.

Then add more details like how many talks you have given or if you are an author. Once you do this, you will have the stellar bio that will have the audience feeling like they know you."
