the vast majority of people who have to speak before groups engage in
the same bad habits – habits based on bad advice and negative re-enforcements that often go back to unfortunate experiences from childhood.
Habits are not skills!
To be a really great speaker, you must toss out most of what you’ve learned about speaking in public and embrace a
new set of surprisingly simple physical
behaviors. No rocket science or musical
ability required.No fuzzy logic or neuro-reprogramming.
Just basic actions that anyone can learn to emulate.
Together, these behaviors are known as
"The Skills", and when you
learn them, you will never look at a speaker, or the art of speaking, in the same way ever again.
PublicSpeakingSkills.com has trained tens of thousands of people
internationally from business,
education, government, military and the clergy in
"The Skills". Now we'd like to invite you
to join this enviable and well-respected group.
The great news here is threefold:
All great speakers since

you ever been to a large presentation, meeting or speech and
come away feeling that throughout the talk, the speaker seemed
to keep coming back and speaking directly to you? Even though
the audiences was in the hundreds, maybe thousands?
You will learn how to do just that - how to make every member of a
large audience feel personally engaged.
And as hard
as it might be to
believe, you'll do that by using the exact
same techniques as you'll use when speaking to 2 or 3 people!
of the great things about "The Skills"
is that they
are 'infinitely scalable'. No matter what size group
you're speaking to, you do precisely the same things.
Except that the
more people in the audience, the more positive feedback you'll receive
for your efforts.
And speaking of effort, another
surprising truth about "The Skills" is that
will be exerting significantly less physical and mental energy
doing so. Which also results in a massive positive-feedback loop as you physically
display the confidence you'll be feeling.

interesting, or effective, because they attempt to do way too

courses, some of which are sponsored by major universities in
the US & UK.
After many years, we have yet to find a
single course that offers any insight into the actual techniques
required to speak well.
The majority of the
"free" classes deliver enrollees exactly what they pay
