Finally I got my showreel in English. It’s great to be able to show my speaking style in case someone is curious.
Many times I get questions about how to get hired as a speaker. A question that has no Quick and Easy answer because getting hired is many times a long process, involving a lot of people. Of cause you need to know the right people, you need a great presentation and most of all you need a GREAT SPEECH that give value to the audience.
A sometimes overlooked part of that process is that you need to show what kind of a speaker you are. Mostly you get hired because someone saw you, and then recommended you. Because you did a great job!
Other times no one have seen you and recommend you. In both cases there will be people that want to get a taste of what you are like as a speaker. And that’s when your showreel is important. If they like what they see, you might get booked BUT many times they will come back to you and ask for more. They will want to see a whole, unedited speech with you.
Below you see my latest showreel. Let me know what you think!
