Entrepreneurs, professionals, authors, speakers, coaches, consultants:

Are you ready to take your presentations to a whole new level? Where audiences hang on every word and respond to your call to action -- no questions asked?

Yes, you can give engaging presentations -- presentations that compel your audiences to take action, presentations that persuade your audiences to buy, presentations that take your audiences from apathetic to motivated -- and you can do it with ease and with confidence!

Dear speaker, 

I know how lonely it can get on stage. Sometimes your audience is not there by choice. Sometimes your audience is skeptical or hostile. Sometimes your audience just needs their first morning coffee!

Whatever the reason, we don't always receive the level of attention and interest we hope for as presenters.

And if they're not interested, and they're not paying attention, they're not engaged

Why does this matter?

  • You have a valuable message to share.

  • You have something they need or want.

  • You -- ultimately -- want to make the sale, get the client, teach the student, persuade the colleague and change people's attitudes or behaviors.

If your audience isn't engaged, you can just forget about all of that.

But maybe you really don't have any idea about what you need to do to get and keep their attention.

Or maybe you've tried some things that used to work... but don't anymore.

You can keep trying to figure it out on your own, or you can join me for my teleseminar series "Speak to Engage: 7-Step Shortcut to Public Speaking Success" and let me take you through the steps to creating a presentation that gets you the results you're looking for.

The program runs eight weeks from October 27 - December 15, from 1:00 - 2:00 PDT/4:00 - 5:00 EDT each week. Each week's session will be available as a replay, so you don't have to miss anything!

This program is for you if:

You're frustrated with the lukewarm and "polite" responses you get every time you speak

You're looking for an easy checklist of tools and techniques that you can draw from over and over again 

You want to promote your business through speaking but don't want to sound like a commercial when you present

You're uncomfortable using humor, but you know it's the #1 way to get your audience on your side

You give the same presentation on a regular basis and want to make it fresh every time

You struggle with adjusting your content for different audiences and feel like you're just not connecting

You're an experienced speaker looking to fine tune your skills and add some new tricks to your bag

If some of those resonate with you, then my program "Speak to Engage: 7-Step Shortcut to Public Speaking Success" is for you!

Public speaking can be such a joyful experience. Connecting with the audience, giving them my energy and receiving it back multiplied, knowing that they walk out the door inspired, motivated and ready to take action: That's what I want for you.

I will share my absolutely fool-proof techniques (and one of them is a big mental shift, so get ready...) for giving a presentation that grabs your audience's attention and keeps it, while raising your professional profile just a few notches!

And get this: 

Engaging the audience, focusing on making the presentation enjoyable and memorable for them... 

Also builds your confidence!

You can relax and be yourself!

You can actually have fun!

And at the same time, get the results you want from your presentations:

More customers and clients

More visibility for your business

More credibility for you

Here's a sampling of what you're going to learn in my 7-step program:

Step 1: The audience comes first

This one shift in your mindset will take your presentations in a whole new direction. 

I'll teach you:

How to reframe the whole basis for your content and delivery, and come from a place of understanding how your audience thinks and how (and why) they learn

How to look at everything you do from the audience's perspective

How motivations and barriers to learning influence how much your audience takes away from your presentation

Just the adult learning principles you'll learn -- on their own -- are worth an entire course!

Step 2: Go with the flow

Just because you're in love with your data doesn't mean your audience is! No more disorganized, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, overly complex presentations that overwhelm your audience and leave them confused and frustrated.

You'll learn:

How to take your ideas from your head to the page, in a structured and organized way that will keep your audience following along for as long as you want

Several ways to organize your thoughts so that your presentation flows seamlessly from start to finish

How to visualize your presentation as a skeleton that you cover in skin, clothing and accessories before ever typing a bullet into PowerPoint (how's that image for you?)

Why "So what?" is the most important question you can ask... yourself

Step 3: Shake things up

Audience interaction is a critical step that's frequently overlooked by speakers: How do you get the audience to take responsibility for their own learning? After all, no one is an empty vessel waiting to be filled. 

We'll talk about:

How to partner with your audience so they make optimal use of their own critical thinking skills, and better retain your information?

How to use physical movement to create engagement

Why it's so important to include emotion, not just facts and figures, in your presentation and how can you do it effectively

How you can incorporate stories, analogies, examples, demos and more to make sure your concepts are grasped and understood by the greatest number of people

Step 4: Complete the package

A powerful, engaging opening gets your audience on board from the first few seconds. A strong, memorable closing leaves your message resonating with your audience for hours, days, or weeks after your presentation. 

Yet these two steps are ignored by most speakers in favor of standing in front of the room and reciting credentials and thanks yous, with a final glance at their watch and "that's it" when time is up. Which do you think your audience prefers?

I'll cover a variety of ways to open and close your presentations so all that time you've spent on the content in the middle doesn't go to waste!

By the way, your closing shouldn't go where you think it does...

Step 5: It's the little things

Unfortunately, there are a lot of little things that can turn the off in the blink of an eye -- even if you had their attention already!

You'll learn:

How to make transitions smooth and effortless instead of jumping awkwardly from subject to subject

How to create a room layout that's conducive to learning instead of boredom -- or worse -- sleep!

How to practice most efficiently and effectively so you know how much time each activity, question and point will take, and what to do if the speaker before you goes long and your time gets cut. It happens!

How to ensure that your language is understandable, clear, concrete and consistent with the audience's knowledge and experience, so you don't speak over their heads or insult their intelligence -- without even realizing it

How to ensure your audience of fact-checkers (hello, Google!) doesn't call you out on unverified statistics and stories

Step 6: Get your head in the game

If your "head's not in the game," as they say, you won't be in a mindset to engage and connect with your audience.

You'll get access to:

Some of the physical and mental preparation secrets of elite athletes and world-class performers that will reduce the anxiety and nervousness that stands in the way of building a relationship with your audience

Powerful readiness techniques so you can take the floor with confidence and poise.

Relaxation and vocal preparation exercises you can start using right away!

Step 7: Take stock

If you can't evaluate your success, it doesn't matter how engaging you are. Analyzing your presentations is how you go from good to great: taking what you learn each step of the way and applying it to every future presentation. 

Presentation skills are not static; the most successful and experienced speakers continue to work on their skills -- constantly.

You'll learn:

How to read the audience while you're presenting so you can shift and adjust as needed in the moment -- and no, it's not about those tired old body language signs we've all been taught

How to determine whether you want to use evaluations or not (it's not a cut and dry decision for most of us) and how to discern the real meaning behind the numbers and comments

The importance of audio and video recording and why this is critical to your speaking success if you want to continue to improve (and get invited back)

With this system, you'll also get:

Worksheets, exercises and handouts to cement the ideas we'll be talking about

Links to helpful videos, blog posts and articles to support what you're learning

Examples of my own questionnaires and evaluations I use with my clients

A recording of each call for you to replay at your convenience

A private Facebook forum for discussion and questions in between calls
