How does one get gigs on the "lecture circuit"?
What is the “lecture circuit” and how does it work? How does one go about getting paid to give presentations to audiences outside of an academic setting? Does one have to be a best selling author or recognized expert in some field? Does one need an agent? Have you ever been paid to deliver a presentation, and if so, how did you get the job?
