Hey, friends! Welcome to my first episode of 2017. I’m back!
Rather than make another boring slide show or endlessly rattle through tons of data, what if you could learn an approach that teaches you to build a presentation that showcases your personality, highlights your unique experiences, and allows you to deliver your stories and information in a way that feels good to you?
After giving 700+ talks, I’ve realized there is a formula for being yourself on stage. I put it all together and created the Style, Truth, Art, Group, and Energy System, or the STAGE System. It gives you the chance to pause and ask yourself who you want to bring to the stage. If you are naturally funny, how can you incorporate some humor into your talk? If you went through a life-changing experience, how can you tie that into your subject? If you love interacting with the audience, how can you make that a big part of your speech? By using the STAGE System as your guide, you build your talk so you are in your element and really shining on stage.
If you want to craft a speech that puts your personal stamp on every presentation, you are going to love this episode.
