9 Steps to Public Speaking Expertise

Hat tip to Joe Shervell.


  1. Reblogged this on Undecided and commented:
    I go to a lot seminars/conferences etc and a really good speaker makes all the difference to the tone of the whole event. Its great to see the small difference that can be made to increase an attendees enjoyment of an event.

  2. The REAL speech demonstrates to me that business is really just feminine.

    Can you imagine Abraham, Moses, or King David considering to limiting themselves to only what the people were interested in hearing? There sits David, conquerer of giants, afraid of speaking truth, afraid of following the will of God because an Israelite might not want to hear it. Is this what happened?

    Wait, wait John, you might say, business is separate than religion. Our goal is to make money and one does not do that by offending people!

    I suppose business is separate than any allegiance owed to God. Now which takes primacy?

  3. Thanks Conor, like this a lot, and all i can add is that the most important parts of any presentation are first’s and last’s, I train executives to Never End on Q & A for a number of reasons, but the main one being always end strong (last’s) maybe with a link back to your start (first’s)?
    My process is: Pre end (summary) “just before I end , we now we have a few minutes for Q & A, (deal with Q’s) then say, “Thanks for listening my main point is…”here we either call to action or something that is memorable etc…!
