Most people in this world would rather swan dive into a swimming pool filled with hypodermic needles than speak in public. Why is that? Because public speaking is scary. That's why.
What most people don't realize though is that public speaking is one of the best ways, if not THE best way, to grow your business and create a world of new business opportunities.
Most people fear public speaking for a few reasons. First, they don’t know what to say. Second, they usually aren’t speaking in front of the right group of people, people who are genuinely interested in what they have to share and third, they aren’t sure how to deliver a brilliant speech.
In this class, students will learn how to uncover their core message, how to find an audience that wants to hear what they have to say, how to formulate a 5-star presentation and how to use speaking to build a business.
Students who complete this class will leave with a speaking platform, promotional marketing materials, templates for booking presentations and a clear action plan to start booking presentations immediately.
This class is perfect for anybody who is required to give presentations as part of their job description, entrepreneurs who want to grow their business, anybody who has thought about a career as a motivational speaker and anybody who never wants to choose between a public speech and a pool filled with needles.
By the end of this class students will have a speaking topic, marketing materials (either blog, about.me page, speaker page on a company website or all of the above) and an action plan to start presenting immediately.
