Businesses are constantly changing but the characteristics of a great leader remain the same. Tony D'Amelio, a well respected agent in our industry, wrote an article A Career as a Speaker Bureau Agent, and in it he highlighted the skills it takes to be a speaker bureau agent.
Just a few are:
- Insatiable curiosity...about people, what they do and why they do it. They're learners.
- Storytellers...just like the people they are recommending.
- A strong moral compass.
- A sense of responsibility.
These characteristics are the foundation of any great leader!
