Excerpt: Ever hear about maintaining “eye contact” with the audience?

The way that 99% of us learned public speaking leads to not only increased fear and anxiety, but also robs us of our ability to focus on our thoughts and delivery, too.

Instead, discover the simple presentation skills that bond  you to your audience while delivering your message with razor-sharp precision.

All great speakers share a common trait: 

                   

They learned to be great by studying those that went before them. Although we are sometimes enamored by the oratory skills of public figures, none was born with the ability to persuade or inspire.

 

Instead, what makes them good is their common desire to study and learn the basic skills that set great speakers apart. JFK studied FDR and Churchill and then put his own very human stamp on their style.  Bill Clinton studied Kennedy and Martin Luther King; Obama studied them all, and when he shares stories from his life, (and not using the tele-prompter!) you can even hear tones of Ronald Reagan.

Speaking well is not about genes.  Unlike basketball or the violin, no inborn talent is required.  Speaking well is a skill, comprised of physical behaviors, learnable by anyone who cares enough to succeed.  

   

"And now for something completely different..." - John Cleese

   

Forget everything you’ve heard from your public speaking education about eye-contact, body language, and voice - it’s likely either old-school, or just plain wrong.  Now, in one very entertaining, interactive class, you will see and hear for yourself what has been imprisoning the excellent presenter inside you, and how you can finally break free of the common chains that have limited the advancement abilities of so many businesspeople for generations.  

              

Participants come away from this class knowing exactly why each of the behaviors they employ when speaking causes a specific physiological result, and how by modifying those behaviors, they can change the way their bodies and minds respond.  We don't use pep talks.  We don't tell you to 'imagine' that you're feeling something that you're not.  We don't droll on about the power of positive thinking, or tell you to "just relax".  You learn that although you can't change the way your body responds to certain stimuli, you can certainly change the behaviors that create and magnify the stimuli in the first place.  

   

"We show people how to look good, sound good, and

look confident & comfortable just being themselves."

      

More good news: you can also forget what they’ve always told you about “practice, practice, practice”.  Who today can follow “rules” such as “For every minute you speak, spend 60 minutes practicing”?  A presentation designed and delivered with our 3-Step method never needs to be scripted or memorized.  Instead, using our proven system of public speaking that you will learn-for-life, you will have the skills to look and sound like an expert, even the first time out of the box!  At the end of the day, participants deliver a presentation they've never given before, yet look and sound like experts doing so.  Really quite empowering!

Non-Frequently Asked Questions

      

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are tasked with choosing amongst numerous presentation skills training firms, here are some Non-Frequently Asked Questions you should definitely be asking of your potential vendors (and writing down their answers):

1) How many years experience actually delivering business presentations does our instructor have, not including simply instructing this course?

2) What techniques do you teach to reduce speaker anxiety? (hint: if their answer includes advice such as "just relax", or "imagine yourself on a tropical island...", we suggest you might want to look elsewhere - quickly!). 

3) What personal involvement does our particular instructor have in creating and revising the course materials? 

4) What is the copyright date on the workbook? (We suggest having their fax the copyright page, right now.)

5) When delivering, how far ahead in the presentation should the speaker be thinking?

6) What is the Number 1 rule for obtaining and maintaining audience engagement?

7) What do you see as the relationship between slide design and delivery skills? (give examples)

8) Describe what makes putting on a live presentation different from a webinar, and what special techniques do you train to make webinars engaging?

9) Can you supply a list of clients by whom our instructor has been invited back at least five times?  OK, how about three times? 

10) How do you maintain the attention of our participants throughout the training day? (If the answer involves any form of sugar - or group aerobics - again, you may wish to check elsewhere).

Bonus Question: How do you handle participants for whom English is not their native language?

We would be happy to answer all of these questions, and more, at your earliest convenience.
