If you are serious about having a successful business today – It’s vital that you stand out from the crowd… (for the right reasons).
If you interact on-line or off-line with clients – you’re in sales.
If you speak or present to clients – you’re a speaker.
To increase sales and profits… You MUST be the best you can be at sales, marketing and speaking… Speaking let’s you massively leverage your time! It puts your marketing on legal steroids!
This means we must rid of death by PowerPoint presentations. We’ve all sat through them, how did it make you feel…? It’s not what you do is it…? Is it?
You must learn to speak and write with passion, enthusiasm and integrity, whatever your field. You must discover how to truly engage with people… And we pretty much all engage at an emotional level. Not a bullet point and graph level, not a dull monotone voice level.
Can you imagine going to a west end show, or watching you’re favourite drama, soap or documentary on TV – to watch the actor or presenter just reading from their notes…
If you know your topic, your product or service – get rid if the notes and learn how to speak from the heart… It will transform you and your results. It makes you far more enjoyable to listen to and gets your message across far better too. I know that can sound scary…
I’ve seen “speakers” having to rely on loads of complicated slides to explain their message. What does that do for the audience? What does it tell you about their belief in their product or service?
I’ve even seen presenters having to hold and read from their laptops when technology failed and they couldn’t run the slide show. What? They don’t know their topic enough to just speak? It’s not that tough, and there are simple skills we can all master to become better speakers and presenters, 1-2-1, one to a boardroom or one to a ballroom.
If you want to be a professional speaker and get paid to travel the world and speak as I do, or simply want to improve your presentation skills for your day to day business – I’d love to help you.
