Have you ever thought you’d like to be in the business of speaking for a living?   What is involved with speaking professionally and how do you get started? Who pays to get you to the speaking event and who pays you to speak?   Today Shirley Gutkowski, RDH, Host of Cross Link Radio, and owner of Cross Link Presents, will take you into her life and business as a professional speaker.

Shirley Gutkowski is a well-known personality in the dental and dental hygiene world. She’s been called an incredible content producer having a presence in books; articles in trade, peer review, and consumer publications; YouTube; Google+; LinkedIn; Facebook and, of course, BlogTalkRadio.  Shirley’s business model is to be paid to do presentations, be paid to write, and never work a day in her life. Being paid to do the presentations and write on topics she loves to learn more about is a blast! Anyone who has ever heard Shirley speak never forgets they’ve been to one of her presentations.  She grabs the audience’s attention and holds on to it over the course of the presentation.  Just when you think you can day dream just a little, there’s Shirley with a one liner to pull you back in. 

Her presentations get audiences motivated to do something different on their next work day and bring health to many patients. Shirley’s passion for making life better for others reveals itself daily as she continues to strive for opening practice settings for dental hygienists, teaching consumers what to expect in a good clinician, change laws to allow dental hygienists into nursing homes to reduce pneumonia deaths, building a school for dental hygienists in Belize.
