Professional Cruise Ship Speakers Get Accepted and Rejected for 3 Different Reasons

Speakers Give Away Free Stuff

Follow the Directions

SpeakOnCruises works with would be cruise ship lecturers from all over the world – England, Peru, Down under (is that the name of a country?) and throughout the United States.

Besides having the basic stuff of being a professional speaker – content, delivery, expertise – there are generally 3 reasons why a speaker might get rejected and 3 more reasons why they would get accepted.

3 reasons a professional cruise ship speaker will get rejected:

1. The application is incomplete – fill in ALL the blanks. Not just the ones that you know the answers to.

2. Didn’t follow instructions – still it is quite amazing how many people simply cannot follow directions.

3. Didn’t match objectives – when a cruise line says they have enough wine experts, don’t propose another wine talk.

3 reasons a professional cruise ship speaker will get accepted.

1. Stands out – a key principle is for the speaker to have something to offer that nobody else has.

2. Fits the objective – we need somebody to talk on Social Media. I know Social Media. I didn’t propose balloon twisting.

3. Offered additional outcomes – gives more than expected. Yeah, I can talk and make myself available at other times to offer training, host a Q&A, lead a discussion over dinner … Two people with the same qualifications, the one who will give more will win out.

Do you want to be a cruise ship lecturer? We can steer you through the process.
