You cannot excel at public speaking without a good speech. If you’re asked to give a speech or its required for your business, you know that when you stand up there to give that presentation, you’re going to have to have a well organised outline and content to get through it and impress those listening. Sometimes the fear of an upcoming speaking engagement comes from that writer’s block that happens when you have to write a good speech. Writing a speech is not exactly like writing a term paper or a report. The reason is simple. What you actually "write" is not intended to be read.  It will be heard. You don’t have to worry about good spelling or the other conventions of writing a paper because it might never…

Motivational Speaking

Uncategorized
Motivation is the fuel that feeds our dreams and drives us to succeed, and the right motivational speaker can change your next training event from an arbitrary collection of do's and don'ts to a pit stop that will breathe new life into your business. The role of a motivational speaker may seem a bit elusive. The title implies a call to action and the goal at the end of the day is to facilitate a change in behaviour. The last generation of motivators was adept at getting an audience to believe - 'I can do it!' - but they often failed to provide the tools, or failed to start shaping the skills, that are necessary to implement this new-found inspiration. The key to effective motivation is sustainability. A true motivator…

Why Speak?

Why Speak?

presentations, Public speaking, Uncategorized, Video
Why not speak? Speaking is everything if you want to grow your business. I know it is scary and I know you would rather jump off a tall building without a parachute than stand up and speak in front of a group of people.    But what if you could change just one person's life if you just told them what you do? Speaking in public is something that we have forgotten how to do.   Before the digital age, we would speak all the time.  We would do live presentations, we would speak in school and we would speak in all sorts of places.   But we now speak to ourselves through the medium of live streaming, video and social media. And many of you do speak to yourselves.  You forget…

Tell stories when you speak

Uncategorized
Stories are a part of us As an audience we love to hear about other people.  We love to know their stories and how they got to where they are now. History shows that we learn through story telling.  All those fairy stories, the fables, the legends, they are ways of communicating lessons to us in a way we will remember. Although we live in a very visual world today and people are losing the ability to sit and listen for any length of time, your story is still a powerful way of helping people understand who you are.  It gives you a chance to create a link between you and the audience. If you are worried about talking in front of people, you need to know that your talk…

The Message

The Message

Uncategorized
Everywhere we look there is a message. Written, implied, made clear, ironic, wrong etc. We cannot move for the number of messages in our life. They talk about the nanny state, and if you think back a couple of hundred years, the number of messages in our lives were reduced to just those around our immediate environment. Things like 'No Poaching', 'Hanging today'. However, we live in an age where we are bombarded by messages, and we have our own messages to get out there. How do we do that? How do we get our voice's above everyone else? For some, it is about shouting louder than anyone else or bigging up their success, their experience, and just plain shouting for the sake of it. This does not make for…
