Why you should invest in speaker coaching

The initial part of public speaking is all about you. You have an event coming up, it’s high stakes and you have specific outcomes you want to achieve. You want assistance that’s focused only on you and your needs. It’s urgent and you need it now because: 

  • You want to take your speaking to the next level, you want to be world class 

  • You want to see results from the time you invest in speaking at events and conferences 

  • You’re getting paid to speak and you want outstanding results that lead to more speaking opportunities 

  • You want to represent your industry in the best way and you want your content to inspire and your delivery to engage 

 

With the ever-growing popularity of TED style talks around the world, people are continuing to be compelled by short, clean, curated, punchy talks. This has now become the rule and not the exception. 

Your content is not enough, you need to create a message that is concise and congruent, combined with dynamic delivery that touches the hearts and minds of the audience whilst being littered with tangible takeaways.

What we work on

Michael is New Zealand’s sought-after speaker coach; he works with you on your: 

  • Script development, storyline creation, slide deck creation, dynamic delivery, stage tech and stage presence 

  • Ability to speak in a memorable way (this is the hardest for most people) 

  • And most important, your ability to engage and influence your audience 

 

He also helps you: 

  • Find the core message you are wanting to share, bring a concept to market, grow your capability, gain your competitive edge and take your ideas to the world 

  • And in general, how to look comfortable, confident and relaxed, and, how to speak in a clear and understandable manner
