The Top 10 Mistakes Speakers Make That Undermine Their Message and Ruin Their Results!
As recently as a couple of generations ago, the ability to present yourself and your ideas well was considered a fundamental life skill that any truly educated person was expected to have.
Not so much anymore.
Presentation skills are rarely taught in schools, and when they are, they’re not taught very well.
AND YET, A BIG PART OF ACHIEVING SUCCESS IN BUSINESS HAS TO DO WITH YOUR ABILITY TO EFFECTIVELY CONNECT WITH PEOPLE THROUGH THE SPOKEN WORD AND THE ABILITY TO INSPIRE PEOPLE TO ACTION.
So, where does that leave you?
It leaves most people untrained, uncertain, and often not performing very well when it comes to one of life’s most essential skills. That’s why we offer what we think is the very best presentation skills training you can get anywhere.
Sure, we help you with your content, because having quality content that’s highly focused and valuable to audience members is important. That involves helping you write and edit your material, as needed.
BUT WHERE THE TRANSFORMATION REALLY SHOWS UP IS IN YOUR PRESENCE IN FRONT OF A ROOM, NOT TO MENTION ONE-ON-ONE CONVERSATIONS. AND PRESENCE IS ALL ABOUT HOW YOU LOOK TO PEOPLE IN YOUR AUDIENCE, HOW YOU LOOK AT THEM, AND HOW YOU SOUND TO THEM.
There are things we all do, in terms of how we look and sound, that enhance the impression we make on people … and things we do that detract from it. Do you know what you’re doing and how it’s affecting people’s impression of you? Most people don’t.
You want to project a warm and likeable, yet authoritative, professional image. And frankly, even those who are truly gifted in this area aren’t likely to create the most favorable impression possible and get their message across really effectively without some presentation skills training.
Some seem to think presenting is no big deal. Why do they need presentation skills training? It’s just talking, and everybody knows how to talk. They can “wing it” or just drone on while reading PowerPoint slides.
You see so many really bad presentations, and so few that make you sit up and take notice. There are so many mediocre or even bad presenters out there, and so few who really connect with you and truly have an impact on your life.
No. Presenting IS a big deal. The opportunity to speak to people about who you are, what you do … the ideas you have … is an honor. It’s a privilege. Do you really want to perform at anything less than your very best? Of course not.
YOU WANT TO TOUCH, MOVE, AND INSPIRE PEOPLE … TO EFFECT CHANGE IN PEOPLE’S LIVES AND IN THE ORGANIZATIONS YOU’RE A PART OF.
The only way to do that is to present your best self to the world. And the only way to present your best self is to know what you have to do to make a good impression as a speaker. That doesn’t happen by accident.
All communication skills are important, but, in many ways, presentation skills may be the most important of all. Why? Because they allow you to connect with a lot of people all at once in an up-close-and-and-personal way, where all the attention is focused on you … what you’re saying … what you’re proposing. That’s so rare in today’s short-attention-span, say-it-in-140-characters, multimedia, here-in-a-flash-and-gone world.
AS A GOOD SPEAKER, YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRULY COMMAND COMPLETE ATTENTION AND HAVE A DEEP AND MEANINGFUL CONVERSATION WITH PEOPLE. YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO CHANGE LIVES … EVEN CHANGE THE DIRECTION OF AN ORGANIZATION …
BUT ONLY IF YOU HAVE THE PRESENTATION SKILLS TO PULL IT OFF.
The good news? We can help you learn those skills in a non-threatening, even fun way, and take your game to a whole new level.
“Simple, clear, effective, compassionate … these words describe the coaching I received from Denise Hedges. After my first group presentation using Denise’s method, I began relationships with five new coaching clients, over 70% of the attendees! Denise has given me a process for finding … and closing … new clients that actually works.”
