So what does a cruise ship speaker write about? If you are a Destination Speaker, you give the history, culture, geography and high points of the places the ship will go. This is pretty hard to do unless you have lived in these places.
An Enrichment (sometimes called Special interest) speaker has way more latitude. Pick a topic that you are an expert in – it’s gotta be fun and can entertain people on vacation. Here are some of the topics in demand: Astronomy, Caricaturist, Computers, Drawing/Sketching, Earth Science, Fashion, Feng Shui, Financial , Genealogy, Geology, Handwriting . . . and the list goes on.
At SpeakOnCruises, we help you develop your topics in such away that they are appealing to agencies, but YOU deliver the goods. All you need are 4 different 45-minute talks in one genre (like above). Once we get you through the application process and you are selected, you typically have several months until your cruise. It’s like giving orals after a term paper. Really. Content is king – but your delivery and ability to entertain is key. Do not have a sea of words or bullets….you are the expert – just show pictures and go from your heart. Don’t memorize. Add videos – retention sky rockets. Put in sound bytes. involve the audience.
So, can you write a term paper on a topic that you love? Yes, you can – we can help.
