In today's fast-paced digital world, the speaking industry is experiencing a major transformation. As technology advances, our strategies for engaging audiences and staying relevant must also evolve. In this blog post, I'll share some innovative strategies for enhancing your speaking career using AI, and what audiences are craving now and in the future.

I recently discussed all this with some of my Rockstar Speaker friends.

  • Jeremy Schwarz: A global speaker on leadership and sustainability.
  • Coach MJ: Known as the king of virtual leadership and an expert in Quantum leadership.
  • Professor Christian Farioli: A digital marketing wizard with over 21 years of experience, specialising in AI.


Embrace AI to Elevate Your Speaking Career

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is more than just a buzzword; it's a powerful tool that can revolutionise your speaking career. Here’s how you can leverage AI to stay ahead of the curve:

1. AI for Content Creation and Research

AI can be a game-changer in creating and curating content. Tools like ChatGPT can help you generate ideas, write scripts, and personalise your presentations to suit your audience’s preferences. This allows you to focus more on delivering an impactful performance rather than getting bogged down by content creation.

2. Personalised Audience Engagement

With AI, you can analyse your audience's feedback and preferences in real-time. This lets you tailor your messages and ensure that each interaction is meaningful and impactful. Imagine knowing exactly what your audience wants to hear before you even step on stage.

3. Building Your Own AI Assistant

Creating a personalised AI assistant can significantly enhance your interaction with your audience. This AI can answer questions, provide additional content, and keep your audience engaged even after your talk is over. It’s like having an always-on, interactive business card that keeps the conversation going.

Adapting to Technological Changes

The digital landscape is constantly evolving, and it’s crucial to stay versatile and prepared for these changes. Here are some key strategies:

1. Diversify Your Platforms

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Platforms like TikTok, YouTube, and LinkedIn each offer unique ways to reach and engage different segments of your audience. Experiment with these platforms to find the ones that work best for you.

2. Stay Ahead of AI Developments

AI technology is advancing rapidly. Staying updated with these advancements will give you a significant edge. Whether it’s the latest in AI-driven search algorithms or new content creation tools, being in the know will keep you at the forefront of your industry.

3. Overcoming Technophobia

Many people fear new technologies, but embracing these changes can set you apart from the competition. Continuously educate yourself, seek mentorship, and engage in reverse mentoring to learn from younger, tech-savvy generations.

The Human Touch in a Digital World

As we immerse ourselves in a world dominated by technology, audiences will crave authentic, human interactions more than ever. Here’s why and how you can capitalise on this trend:

1. Entertainment with Real People

In a digital age, the value of face-to-face interaction is priceless. Audiences will increasingly seek out real, live experiences that offer a break from their screens. Your ability to connect on a personal level, entertain, and engage in real-time will become your biggest asset.

2. Blending AI with Human Touch

While AI can handle many tasks, the human touch is irreplaceable. Use AI to manage logistics and data analysis, but let your personality and authenticity shine through in your presentations. This blend will make your talks both efficient and memorable.

3. Creating Unique Experiences

The future of public speaking lies in creating unique, immersive experiences that AI alone cannot provide. Incorporate elements of storytelling, humour, and live interaction to captivate your audience. Remember, people come to see you, not just hear information.
