Marty's Speaking Experience
Marty’s first speaking gig was in 2003, where he taught Search Engine Optimization and website copywriting techniques to clients of a graphic design company.
In 2004, he launched his first book, Winning the Internet Dogfight, and conducted 15 paid workshops for audiences supplied by NSACO co-founder, Joe Sabah, which led to further speaking opportunities for audiences supplied by Constant Contact, DaVinci Institute, Colorado Independent Publishers Association (CIPA), AuthorU, New Business Connections, Inc (NewBCI), National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), and National Speakers Association (NSA Charlotte chapter and 2014 national convention).
In August of 2019, just as Zoom was becoming established, Marty quickly realized the future of virtual live as a primary presentation tool. So, he started a five-month intensive where he led a small group of speakers, authors and business owners to meet weekly to explore, test and develop best practices for presenting in a virtual live format.
Marty's Event Facilitation Experience
Marty’s facilitation experience began as a Toastmasters member, serving as a district officer (Area Director 2001 and Division Director 2002, TLI Trainer). He was Master of Ceremonies for nearly a dozen Toastmasters contests and created the contest checklist still used today by clubs throughout Colorado.
The competitive and stressful environment of Toastmasters contest facilitation inspired Marty to host his own events beyond Toastmasters. In December of 2019, he launched a pilot event called Speaker Theater to provide new speakers with a way to gain experience speaking in front of a larger audience than a typical Toastmasters club or Meetup group. The pilot was successful and was scheduled for an event in 12 major cities throughout the U.S. and then Covid-19 shut down in-person venues. Marty is excited for re-launching Speaker Theater post-Covid in fall of 2021 as venues reopen.
Marty enjoys assisting others wanting to learn how to build their businesses through speaking as he hosts the Speakers Speak LIVE weekly practice sessions for professional speakers. He is also the founder of Speakers Speak Group on Facebook where you will have access to a private podcast for speakers called the “Million-Dollar Nugget.”
