I met up with my friend and colleague Sheri Tousey-Baker who has for a number of years been the enrichment program coordinator for a major cruise line. We talked shop and about the incredible potential that enrichment programs have for both speakers and the cruise lines.
In any event, she was very complimentary of my eprogram Speak on Cruise Ships. She agreed to video record her thoughts about my program which I publish below.
What is so telling about the video is that she is of the opinion (a very important opinion btw) that cruise speakers who try to book directly have little hope of success because they don't know how to prepare, present and market themselves to people like her. In effect, she is of the opinion that without my program would-be cruise speakers booking directly with cruise lines are dead in the water (pun intended).
Why is it so important to book directly?
So you don't have to pay the cruise speaker agency fees which the speakers (not the cruise lines) are expected to pay. And fees can range upwards of $100 per day. Ouch!
So if you are serious about cruising free with onboard enrichment programs then you need to get my Speak on Cruise Ships program at http://www.speakerscruisefree.com/
