Watch any TED Talk featuring luminaries like Simon Sinek or Ted Robinson and you’ll see why their speeches have been watched millions of times online. While these speaking engagements help inform their audience, they also help the speakers broaden awareness of their personal brand (remember: You are your brand).
If you haven’t added public speaking to your real estate branding repertoire, it’s time to seek out opportunities to share your knowledge and business savvy with the world.
