Most posts on this blog is about how to become better as a professional speaker, or how to develop the business side of speaking. But a few posts are about the life of a global, professional speaker.

This is one of those posts.

I am writing this on Saturday morning in Victoria, Canada.

I spent Monday at home with my family and ended it with a mentoring session for another speaker between 6 and 7 pm. Then I jumped on a plane that would be the beginning of an epic traveling week:

Since Monday evening I have flown:

Singapore-Doha-New York-Plattsburgh-(via car) Montreal-Calgary-Vancouver-Victoria.

8 Airports and 4 speeches in 6 days.

The trick to being able to speak in as many countries as I do (23 countries last year) is to combine and condense the speeches so that I fly from one speech directly to the next.

Tomorrow Sunday I am flying Victoria-Toronto- Quebec where I will end my Canada speaking tour and board a plane to Frankfurt and onwards to Gothenburg for a speech there next week.

So if you want to be a global keynote speaker, be prepared to travel and plan your bookings so that you can fly straight from one speech to the next without going home in between.
