In this ninety minute webinar I will show you exactly what to do to become a far more effective speaker and communicator, and cut your learning curve by years. By the end of this short program you will understand just what it takes to be able to speak and respond spontaneously in any situation from a public toast to a private intimate conversation.
I can make this commitment and promise to you, because I was where you are now too, once upon a time …
Years ago I read about how public speaking was the pinnacle of effective communication, so I decided to become a great public speaker. At first it was ugly. I remember almost passing out at a podium, holding on for dear life, in front a small audience over a luncheon speech I agree to give for some Rotary Club members. It was truly horrible for me! But I kept going anyway and eventually I learned to be a world-class keynote speaker invited and paid to speak to all kinds of audiences internationally.
I learned that the secret of giving a great speech had more to do with how I felt about myself and my audience than any real secrets, even though there are some really simple things that can take an average speech and make it great. What’s more important to you though is that the same things that make a public speech great are what make telling a story to some friends fascinating instead of boring, or having a private intimate conversation with someone more meaningful and authentic than it could ever be without them.
The original idea for this unique program came to me recently, even though I’ve taught literally hundreds and hundreds of people to become better communicators, including professional speakers, sales professionals, CEOs and many, many others …
I was recently at a graduation commencement and heard folks you thought might be good or great speakers totally fail when their turn came at the podium. Upon taking the microphone, in front of an excited and motivated audience of students and parents ready to be inspired, instead of wowing them they just fell flat and left their audience bored and wanting for something more.
Now here’s the very worst part … what they actually said was just fine, in fact in one case the speaker had a great story and even told it pretty well. So it wasn’t their content that was lacking … it was more fundamental, it was about how they thought about themselves as a speaker and their audience, and what they wanted to accomplish in the short time they had in front of them. You could feel it as they spoke they were unsure and afraid, when they could have been motivating and inspiring with so little effort.
Right then and there I decided, “These people could become great speakers if they would only let me help them.” So I decided that I would do just that and I began that day designing the program you’re reading about now.
