7 Reasons To Take My Public Speaking Workshop
Since the release of Confessions of a Public Speaker, I’ve been quietly coaching and training speakers, both individually but also as speake coach for Ignite Seattle, the largest open submission public speaking event in the Pacific Northwest.
Over the years I’ve refined a full day workshop, filled with fun exercises and effective lessons, and I’m proud to make it more widely available to organizations and events. Here’s why you should sign up:
- You will have fun. Yes, it’s true. Public Speaking can be fun. The exercises and games we play are designed to make you feel safe, comfortable and have fun while you learn.
- Leave with confidence. Since you’ll spend much of the day speaking, or critique other speakers, when it’s over you’ll be a much better speaker than ever before. You will learn techniques to manage your fears, and how to prepare to give any presentation with confidence.
- It has amazing reviews. At the last public offering at Impact Hub in Seattle, ratings in all categories averaged 4.8/5.
- You will become a better storyteller. You’ll understand the common mistakes speakers make, how to avoid them, and how to use these skills to help you in your career.
- The day is centered on YOU. This is a WORKshop. You will spend as much time as logistically possible practicing and getting constructive critique (there are other students of course, but you’ll be working at times in small groups, practicing and getting feedback).
- Leave with helpful resources. You’ll get a signed copy of the bestseller, Confessions of A Public Speaker, the book that’s helped thousands of people become better speakers. Plus you’ll get a feedback and critique guide, useful for practice on your own.
- Learn from true expertise. I make much of my living as a professional speaker and have given hundreds of lectures around the world. I’ve appeared on NPR, CNN, MSNBC, and CNBC as an expert on various subjects, including public speaking. Over the last 20 years, I’ve made every mistake imaginable, and teach from a place of invitation: I want you to improve and learn from my mistakes.
