I want to get started in public speaking and would like to start at a local college. I would like to contact the business professor there, but I believe he may just pounce on me about my business background (I have no experience). I am just starting my consulting business and do not want to mess this up.
How should I approach the business department?
Is it anything I should have (credibility, articles, book etc.) before doing so?
or Should I just simply call up and offer myself as a guest speaker?
What would you do?
