You don't have to go it alone



"How can I get my audience to ask more questions?"
"How do I create notes that are useful?"
"How do I make a more effective call to action?"
"How do I adjust my content into longer/shorter presentations?"
"How do I put together a speaker proposal for a conference?"
"How do I infuse more of my personality and personal style into my presentations?"
"How do I stop comparing myself to other speakers?"
"How do I keep from overwhelming my audience with information?"
"How do I judge my effectiveness with an audience?"
"How can I connect more emotionally with my audience and with the material I'm presenting?"

Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions? Or some that are similar? Wouldn't it be great if you could ask someone besides yourself?

Last year in the Speak to Engage Mentoring and Mastery program, these questions and many more were asked, and answered, by the participants on our monthly coaching and accountability calls, and during our visioning retreats where we created 6- and 12-month plans for speaking success.

When you're in business for yourself, or when you're a management-level professional, public speaking isn't a one-time thing you do at a board meeting, conference or networking event, and then it's over. It's a critical ongoing aspect of your job or your business, and a valuable tool for meeting people, putting your ideas out into the world, and becoming known as an authority. You do it again and again, you get good at it (hopefully), and you build a reputation.

When you're an entrepreneur or professional, cultivating your speaking skills and becoming visible as a speaker and expert is one of the absolute most effective ways to get customers and clients and become known as a thought leader.

But when you're the only person speaking for your business or your company, it can feel a bit lonely. It's hard to know what's going to work and what's not going to work. You don't have anyone to ask for advice about your ideas, your content or your delivery. And there's always something new that comes along—a high-stakes speaking engagement, a format you're not familiar with, a topic that's not your strong suit, an intimidating audience—that kicks you right out of your comfort zone.

This is what Speak to Engage Mentoring and Mastery is all about: Mastermind + coaching + mentoring + community + accountability = Success!

You have an intimate, confidential cohort: allies in achievement, partners in progress! Add in coaching sessions with me, visioning retreats to keep you on track, a StrengthsFinder® assessment to help you find your innate talents, and a whole slew of additional resources and bonuses (that are yours to keep forever) to keep your skills and confidence topped up, and you can't help but get the results you want from your speaking.

This program is customized to you, to your needs, to your concerns. We celebrate your wins and we tackle your struggles —together, in our small circle of likeminded presenters.

If it's important to you to grow your business or build visibility and credibility for your company; if it's important to you to face each speaking engagement with energy and excitement; if it's important to you to engage your audiences so they take action and move toward the transformation you offer, then I highly recommend making the investment and taking the time to develop your expertise, learn to do it right, and stand out above the other speakers who are just "getting by." You know who they are; they're the ones that put you to sleep at every event. That's not you.
