ON THE BOLD SPEAKER

I have been booking and coaching speakers since 1982
and here is what I have observed:

The best speakers do not fill the air with a lot
of words – they make the space for audience to tell them
what they need to know.

The best speakers ask, “what do you need to really hear from
me to give you what you came to hear?”

The best speakers are brief and clear and make the most
of a short period of time.

The best speakers focus on observations, feelings needs
AND clear requests of their audience.

The Coach believes . . . the best speakers inspire their audiences to
make some change . . . if they do, things will probably get better.
