Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Tim spoke with his colleague Nick Morgan on the topic of leveraging your platform to become a paid speaker. I had heard of Tim before but hadn't read any of his books, so I wasn't already a fan. Tim was both personal and professional and managed to convey the landscape of public speaking at the same time that he addressed the nuts and bolts of the field.

He also shined in the Q&A section, especially since there were some participants who either were hostile or unreceptive to parts of his message about presenting a professional demeanor as a speaker.

Tim (and Nick) gave insightful, constructive, and personal information in an engaging and entertaining way. The caliber of the presentation and discussion was above expectations and it set up future speakers for success.
