Are you Great at Executive Speaking?

Executive clients succeed at speaking because they identify and develop the three essential elements of speaking success – Content, Organization and Delivery.

  • Content – understanding how you can create an authentic, brief and concise message.
  • Organization - understanding how you can arrange your content so it is audience-centric for maximum effectiveness and retention.
  • Delivery – understanding how you can achieve the fluency and spontaneity of your content that creates a genuine, sincere, and conversational voice.

High-level Speaking

High-level Speaking is a valuable skill for executives, leaders, and rising stars.

There are a few very effective executive speakers and a whole host of really poor, ghastly, inept speakers. They are not High-level speakers. They show up everywhere. In meetings, conference calls, webinars, training sessions, and celebratory events.

Why is this happening?

Because most of these people just “show up”. They do not succeed at speaking because they have very little intention of being effective. As speakers, they are grossly unprepared without a thought about how they will connect their content to their audience. They talk because they can, not because they should.

When you are a High-level speakers you are …

  • Authentic - Genuine, Credible, Valid, Legitimate and Trustworthy
  • Brief - Concise, Succinct, Verbally economic, and Compact
  • Certain - Confident, Assertive, and Determined

The speech was a complete success! And when I went on, I wasn’t nervous - especially after sitting and listening to the others and counting their ums, and watching them read from their notes. You were responsible for making me a star - I just couldn’t have done it without you!.
If you plan to present to large groups I highly recommend that you engage with Don to get formal training and tips for success.

“Don’s tips and tricks helped take the guess work out of public speaking. He taught me to focus not just on what I was saying, but how I was saying it as well. His honesty and candid critique pushed me to improve myself during every session. I look forward to working with Don again in the future to continue to grow as a speaker and a story teller.”
Thank you for the excellent coaching…
your help was invaluable.
