The Secrets to using Public Speaking to Advance your Business Strategically

Having a great business idea, product, or service is one thing. But, successfully championing it to your target audience, whether that’s customers, investors, shareholders or grant-makers, is an entirely different thing.

Participants will leave this workshop with a new understanding of how public speaking can be used strategically to grow and advance their business, and how to get started – the same day. It will bust myths that commonly hold business owners back from public speaking in the first place and redirect people who are currently public speaking in all the wrong places to be far more strategic.

By attending this workshop, you will:

  • Understand the difference between strategic public speaking and flapping your gums (wedding toasts, after-dinner speeches)
  • Swap myths and junk science about public speaking for scientifically backed facts and strategies.
  • Know how to develop a strategic wish list of speaking gigs based on their business’ target audiences and strategic objectives
  • Know the basic roadmap to developing a great presentation
