“Courage is being scared to death – but saddling up anyway.”
Those are the words of John Wayne. And, when it comes to giving presentations, they’re good words to keep in mind.
The fact is that anxiety is an inevitable part of presenting. And there is a good chance that you’re going to be scared. But if you’ve prepared your message properly and rehearse, then you should still be able to “climb up on that horse.”
At Speechworks, we give our clients the tools they need to saddle up and move an audience. We teach our clients to connect with audiences by focusing our programs on two areas:
- How to organize a message that is simple and focuses on audience needs. Speechworks teaches a simple Formula for focusing on listener needs. We believe that if you have strong content, you will be more confident when you get up to speak.
- How to deliver the message in a style that connects with the listeners. We focus on eye contact and energy in your body, voice, and face. Our coaches will give you private feedback on where you most need to improve.
Consider attending an upcoming workshop. We’ll teach you how to make sure that your presentations always end with a happy ride off into the sunset.
