Hiring a public speaker who can deliver something original, motivational and inspiring for your audience.
During my campaign years I had to get used to standing up in large groups of people and telling my story. Sometimes it would be to a roomful of a few, sometimes to an arena with thousands and, most nerve-rackingly, to accumulated members of the media and on camera. I had to do it so often that the nerves drained away and I began to find it easier. I was continuously amazed and surprised at the reaction of my audience and the comfort and help they seemed to draw from my experiences.
It was a fellow speaker friend who suggested that I become a professional public speaker as he felt many would benefit from the lessons I have had to learn and adapt to from my survival and re-building of my life. I now use my talks and speeches to get people to look at their own professional and personal problems in a different way and realise that there is very little they cannot overcome with a bit of creative thinking.
