Why can't we always be smooth, funny, sophisticated, polished, clever, profound, and sail through every presentation?
I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news (please don't shoot the messenger), but when you give a presentation:
There was a time when I thought the most important things about speaking were:
It's about trusting your instincts. Trusting that you know your audience, you know your purpose, and you know exactly who you need to be to deliver impact and transformation.
Public speaking coaching and training are all I do.
This isn't a side hustle to some other kind of business, or consulting or coaching.
Not only am I an active speaker and trainer (since 1992), I've been writing about speaking and training since 2006. I've been coaching since 2005. My book came out in 2017. I have a B.A. in Theater and an M.A. in Education, which directly influence my training and coaching.
You want someone who's "all in," am I right? Not someone just dabbling in presentation skills coaching, but someone who has invested years of time, money and effort in becoming an expert in this field.
I'm serious about what I do. I'm passionate about sharing all the tools and resources I have at my disposal.
I've been gathering these tools for 30 years and I want you to have the benefit of my knowledge and experience!
Make preparation a priority
How do you prepare properly and effectively?
What is this magical thing called confidence, and where does it come from?
Make it fun
You can take your work seriously without taking yourself so seriously!
Focus on service
Do you always bring your A game? It's a requirement you cannot skip.
Deliver an experience
A presentation is a collaboration with the audience. How will you co-create the experience with them?
Stop comparing. Let's talk about how to fall in love with the real you!
Change your mindset
It's our interpretation of situations and the meaning we give them that determines our mindset. Ready for an upgrade?
Connection doesn’t happen in a vacuum. There are a variety of factors you need to manage.
