Bill Belew conducting training for aspiring cruise ship speakers

Since its creation three years ago, the firm has been contacted by over 300 prospects. The team teaches in-person and internet based classes on the industry, opportunities, ship decorum and how to apply.

Speakers usually are asked to provide four talks on one subject – each different and loaded with “InfoTainment.” Cruise audiences are typically older people, who are retired and on vacation. Self-improvement talks are not wanted. Rather, fun topics that a broad audience would be captivated by.  Mr. Belew speaks about Social media. Mr. Deutsch has many topics including Aviation.

To qualify, candidates must have a YouTube of them speaking in front of a live audience. The SpeakOnCruises staff can film/edit them locally or edit for out-of-area folks. The topic need not be the one that will be given on board. Agencies and ships will only watch a few minutes to get an idea on how the person delivers the talk.

The company’s website contains a lot of detailed information on how to enlist this support.
