Stocking Stuffers for Speakers

Stocking Stuffers for Special SpeakersIf your family is like mine, Christmas fever is starting to strike. Decorations are going up around the neighborhood, and every day brings new ads for holiday sales.

If you are anything like me, your Christmas wish list includes an item or two to feed your speaking hobby or career.

Last year, Six Minutes provided dozens of Christmas ideas for the speaker in your life (or you!). By popular demand, we’re doing it again.

  1. There’s a book that just came out this month that I highly recommend titled “Confessions of a Public Speaker” by Scott Berkun.

  2. Darn it! I was just thinking about re-posting my previous speaker gift list soon. I hope you don’t think I’m copying you when I put mine up!

    1. Andrew Dlugan says:

      Not at all, Lisa. It’s always good to get different perspectives.

  3. Ed Wheeler says:

    I forget where I saw it – but there’s also a (bluetooth) wireless mouse that doubles as a presenter – less to carry, and no dongle out the side of the computer if you have bluetooth onboard (may be out of the price range, but still wanted to add it!)

    1. Andrew Dlugan says:

      An example of that is the Kensington K72330US SlimBlade Bluetooth Presenter Mouse. It sells for just $42.14.

  4. Very seasonal Andrew.
    Some great ideas and all laid out in “What it will cost you” order.
    I liked the look of “Better Beginnings” but I couldn’t see it on
    I’ll take another look.
