  1. Great episode Ken, Brian, and Matt!

    I loved the 2 opening stories.

    Do you advise new speakers to address lighting with their clients?


    • Thanks Justin! From Matt: “Absolutely! No matter where you are in your speaking career you should always ensure the lighting is sufficient. Best of luck!”

  2. Guys! I love this podcast and everything that I’m learning from it. Thank you!
    In this episode you mention a link in the show notes for a pre-engagement checklist when setting up a speaking event. Particularly, it would help to ensure that appropriate lighting and sound is in place. I didn’t see a link for that… Can you share it?

    Thanks again for all you do. Paul

    • Hey Paul!

      Thanks so much for your kind words – we’re so glad you’re enjoying the podcast! The Pre-Engagement checklist is the resource called “Lighting: 8 Questions Every Speaker Must Ask” – hope that helps!!

      Thanks again!
