My public speaking course was arguably the best investment I made in my life.
– Warren Buffett
Warren Buffett, Bill Gates and Richard Branson point to public speaking as the most valuable business skill for building a career. In fact, according to Forbes, 70% of CEOs surveyed agree that public speaking skills are critical for career success. Yet most professionals have little, if any, training in this area, leaving them struggling to achieve their full potential.
It’s simple … in today’s business environment, communication skills cannot be ignored. How you deliver presentations has a significant effect on your success. Because of this, further developing your public speaking and presentation abilities is no longer an option, but a necessity.
Public speaking is not a soft skill. It is a power skill — the power skill that delivers results! And it can be YOUR power skill!
Your presentation skills are more important than ever before. And those who best communicate their messages, credibility and ideas will advance their careers, while those less skilled will continue to struggle.
Some experts suggest that speaking to audiences in a compelling manner increases one’s value in business by as high as 50 percent. And while mastering public speaking skills certainly benefits your career, not having engaging presentation skills can be as equally devastating.
1. First, we discuss your objective and determine if we are a good fit.
2. We set up a series of sessions. These are usually four 2.5-hour sessions but can be customized to fit your schedule.
3. In these sessions, we move methodically from where you are now as a speaker/presenter to being calm, confident and credible every time you speak in front of others. Focusing on message, voice and body language, you will be able to consistently engage, persuade and/or inspire your audiences.
4. When our sessions are completed, we continue our relationships. If you need support, I’m there for you.
