NEW YORK - Feb. 4, 2016 - PRLog -- #1 international best-selling author, CEO of Your Book Is Your Hook ,( ) and the Founder of the Speak Up Women Conference ( at the United Nations in March , Jennifer S. Wilkov, will present a talk solely focused on how to become a thought leader at the NY Rotary Club at the 3 West Club located at 3 W. 51st Street, New York, NY today, February 4, 2016, at 12pm EST. The discussion will provide an in-depth look at what it takes to become a thought leader in your company, field or industry and why speaking up as a thought leader can make a difference. The session will also dive into what is needed and required to succeed as a thought leader and top tips for the first steps to take to raise your visibility in your community.

“Experts, business owners and executives often don’t realize that they need to think through what their individual objectives are for becoming a thought leader in their field and then decide which aspect to focus on so their message is clear and concise. To break into the coveted thought leadership positions in your field, experts, business owners and executives need to determine what they want to speak up about from the beginning -- with their platform, first books, and speeches as opposed to just throwing myriad messages out there to see if they will attract colleagues, listeners and readers. When done well, the thought leader’s platform should cultivate opportunities such as speaking appearances and book publishing inquiries to deepen relationships with colleagues, clients, and the industry, not just sell books or speak for the sake of speaking,” states Jennifer S. Wilkov, CEO of Your Book Is Your Hook and Founder of the Speak Up Women Conference at the United Nations in March. “There are a number of ways to craft your thought leadership platform so you can reach, empower and inspire so many in your field. However, there are sometimes too many options that it can become extremely overwhelming and confusing for the business owner or executive who often doesn’t feel competent as a marketer or business developer for his or her own platform and message. An expert with an amazing concept and message could easily find him or herself not getting traction with their efforts and ignored by the audience he or she has targeted. I want to prevent that from happening by educating burgeoning thought leaders like the members of the NY Rotary Club and breaking down the cluttered and often conflicting information they find on the Internet into clear actionable steps they can take to really succeed as a thought leader.”

Ms. Wilkov’s talk will cover topics such as:

•  Mythbusters about thought leadership, including top tips for going from invisible to impact

The rules for establishing your thought leadership platform and the materials required
How thought leadership today can affect your career tomorrow
What publishing industry and media journalists are seeking in today’s thought leaders
