It’s a huge myth that people are “naturally gifted” at speaking and that you either have charisma or you don’t.
The truth? Charisma is nothing more than enthusiasm.
Genuine, truthful excitement about WHAT you’re sharing is infectious.
But it can be hard to show that enthusiasm in a public setting if you feel uncomfortable.
Here’s a non-secret: performance knowledge, preparation, and practice absolutely will make your speech better (you’ll astound yourself with how much better).
Ultimately, you’ll feel so prepared and confident that you’ll actually have (gasp!) FUN performing your speech live. You may even surprise yourself and start to look forward to delighting and inspiring your audiences…
MY SIGNATURE PROLOGUE 3-PART PROCESS
We’ll start by opening up your creativity, confidence, and courage, including your use of your voice, physicality, the stage, and most of all – playfulness! – to charge you to work on your presentation from a base of empowering essentials.
From there, we’ll develop your speech from scratch, find the one big idea you want to share, analyze your audience, create a winning structure for your speech, shape your overall story, and build a foundation of ease and confidence in your message.
Once your speech is prepared, you’ll practice performing it, honing its delivery, and sharpening its content through systematic rehearsal and direction, giving you the robust self-belief in your presentation and the excitement to share that only comes through progressive practice.
