As a pro speaker, you're treated as someone special... because you are!
Successful pro speakers are not only paid well, they're treated well by the people who hire them. (And, of course, if you're good, your audience will reward you with the greatest sound of all - sustained, enthusiastic applause!)
Pro speakers will tell you that nothing beats the sound of applause... except, maybe, for the money! But whatever form of appreciation you like to receive, when you're a pro speaker (and if you're really good), you can be assured that your efforts will be appreciated... and rewarded!
