Does the thought of standing in front of strangers, your peers or potential clients freak you out?
Are you a hot mess when you speak as in…your voice trembles, your hands shake and your face turns red and splotchy?
Are you speaking (or wanting to speak) because you know it will help you grow your business and show your expertise, but the thought of it makes you want to puke?
Well you are definitely NOT alone!
Take a moment and just imagine…
She walks on stage with confidence and poise, beaming her brilliant white smile at the audience and waving to each one of them as if she knows them intimately.
The crowd anxiously hangs onto their seats waiting to devour every moment and every word.
As she stands there, her first words are…Wow! You know how to make a girl feel welcome!
The audience bursts into cheers, laughter, clapping and squeals! They are beyond ecstatic.
The speaker gestures to them to take a seat and the room falls silent.
The speaker begins...let me share a story...
For the next forty-five minutes, the audience clings to the edge of their seat, moving from laughter to awe, then tears and back to laughter again. It’s almost over, and every single person in their chair now sits taller and straighter than when they entered the room. The audience, is motivated, inspired, exhausted, exhilarated….
As the speaker thanks them, many can hardly wait before they start racing to the back of the room to check out the resources and offerings and hopefully grab a moment of the speaker’s time.
The energy in the room feels electric.
Are you wishing and dreaming that this is you?
IT CAN BE!
The question is…how are you going to get there?
Here’s the deal…
Most people are scared death of the stage. And, of the few people that do speak, most are very flat.
How many times have you listened to a poorly prepared, disorganized or boring speaker —enough said.
You see, most of us were not born great speakers or presenters and honestly, speaking is hard.
The reality is that speaking skills are learned—usually through trial and error, and as hard as you may try, and as much as you may practice, with average speaking skills—you become an average speaker.
The problem is that something’s missing.
To be an extraordinary speaker, you need to create a deeper connection with your audience.
And that’s where I come in.
I teach you to speak from that authentic place deep inside and share your stories, so that you can own your stage with confidence, share your expertise with your audience and have fun in the process.
When you learn to do this, you will be amazed at the deeper connections you’ll have, the more impact you’ll make and how your audience will fall in love with you.
While speaking can be scary, uncomfortable and sometimes daunting, it can also be fun and exciting.
If you’re ready to step up and stand out, I’d love to help.
