Talk Big Toolbox
Throughout my career of interviewing celebrities, I’ve found it necessary to create a wide variety of documents in order to book guests, establish ongoing relationships, and improve as an interviewer. It occurred to me that these private emails, show documents, and notes could serve as an amazing tool to help those who want to launch or improve their own careers.
It wasn’t realistic to add these over 100 pages to my book, Talk Big. Much better to put them all together in a cut and paste eBook. I searched my personal files and compiled every email and document relevant to what you might find useful, including:
- Emails for booking and communicating with guests and publicists
- Preparing interview questions
- Meeting agendas
- Staff preparation
- Sponsor outreach
- Dealing with studio execs
- Handling demands
- Focus group questions
- Editing notes
- Online promotion
- Documents for improving as an interviewer
