Google Plus and my favorite feature of this great social network, Google Plus Hangouts, are increasing in popularity as people begin to comprehend their tremendous power for reach and visibility.

As more and more people start to host their own Hangout series, they'll eventually need speakers for their shows. Chances are, if you an expert in a particular topic, you'll be invited to speak at one of these shows.
In this presentation, I offer a step-by-step guide for speakers who are invited for the first time as a guest to an HOA. It is aimed at making life easier for both Hangout hosts and speakers who maybe new to Google Plus or hangouts.
