THE POINT OF PUBLIC SPEAKING
The Point of Public Speaking is to be seen as an expert.
The Point of Public Speaking is designed for people who wish to enhance their career.
When we are perceived as an expert, we attract clients. If people understand your expertise, they will seek you out. Giving a talk, seminar or workshop is a great way for you to not only attract new clients, it also will help your existing clients, potentially turning them into advocates. Advocates refer business.

If we communicate our message effectively, as our audience wishes to receive it, we build credibility & rapport. Both are key elements to develop trust and people have to trust you to work with you.
When we give a talk, after about 7 seconds, the unconscious mind of your listener stops paying attention unless something changes. This is an important point because it is the unconscious mind where decisions are made. So the goal is not to “information-dump” with facts and figures or you’ll lose your audience early on.
I believe that everyone has a voice that deserves to be heard.
During The Point for public speaking, you will learn how to become an effective speaker by learning techniques to engage both the conscious and unconscious mind of your audience, keeping both awake and entertained.
The fear of public speaking is very common. During this workshop I will guide you through creative visualizations specifically designed to mitigate your anxiety around speaking to an audience. Additionally, I’ll equip you with a recording to calm your mind when preparing for a talk.
A More Confident, Engaging Speaker.
It is well- known that the fear of public speaking is widespread. As a well-trained and seasoned speaker equipped with some powerful mind tools, I can teach you how to become an effective and interesting speaker.
If however, you have a phobia to public speaking, this needs to be addressed first or you will panic or freeze in the workshop. To learn more, please click here for There is No Point to Phobias.
