I've just started advertising my services as a public speaking instructor. I have to admit a fair amount of trepidation. Of course I am hoping that hundreds of people will jump at the chance to pay me lots and lots of money, but in all honesty, if I can get a few bookings per month, that would work fine for me. So, one question I have is: How often do companies get consultants to come to their office for training seminars? Do they prefer to have staff trained at their location, or would they rather send people out of the office? I would think it easier to get people to come to work, since either way, they're spending a day doing training, instead of their usual duties. As well, the cost is cheaper if I don't have to rent a space for the day, as I can pass these savings onto the client. Let me know your thoughts on this. I'd love to get other opinions. Cheers!
