Darren LaCroix to Kick off the New Year at Florida Speakers Association –
Topic: Creating Multiple Streams of Income in the Speaking Profession

Fort Lauderdale, FL. – What could you learn from someone who quit their day job and survived on product sales alone? What if that “someone” tracked every product sold at every presentation, every attendee, and the dollars earned per “customer” for the last five years? These are just three of the many questions Darren will address at the January 13, 2018 meeting of the Florida Speakers Association taking place at the Westin, Fort Lauderdale.

After a failed business in 1992, Darren LaCroix took the stage in a Boston comedy club and bombed miserably. It was horrible. The headliner that night told him to “keep his day job” Friends told him that his dream of making people laugh for a living was crazy and stupid. He didn’t listen. Less than nine years later, in 2001, Darren LaCroix outspoke 25,000 contestants from 14 countries to become the World Champion of Public Speaking. He did it with a very funny speech. Some said it was one of the best speeches in the history of the contest.

Heather Christie, President of the Florida Speakers Association says, “If you want to give a better speech, earn more money, and/or get booked more often to speak, Darren is going give you the step-by-step how to do it. He is also going to identify multiple streams of income that speakers can bring into their business to make more money!”

Darren has roused audiences in faraway places including Saudi Arabia, China, Oman, Malaysia and Taiwan with his inspirational journey from first‐rate chump to first‐class champ, proving anything is possible if you’re willing to work for it. Through his live workshops and online programs, Darren works with presenters eager to learn what it takes to connect deeply with their audiences. He is the founder of StageTimeUniversity.com, the ultimate online programs for presenters.

In addition to Darren’s cutting-edge morning program POWERFUL SPEECH DEVELOPMENT, STEP-BY-STEP,  in the afternoon he will be sharing all his “secrets” to making money on YouTube – while you sleep!
