Overview of the webinar

What are powerful speaking skills? It’s not how loud you are or how much information, slides, or charts you present. Rather it’s how quickly you can engage the audience; keep their interest throughout your presentation; and most importantly, be able to communicate your ideas, positions, or viewpoints in a way that your message not only informs but also motivates and influences people to take action.

However, powerful speaking skills do not come naturally to most people. And, even gifted speakers, follow a formula or roadmap: It’s called the “Five S’s for Success.” These 5 speaking factors are the absolute essentials for delivering impactful, insightful, and informative presentations.

  • Strategy: Understand your audience, who they are, what they need, and what’s important to them.
  • Structure: Prepare your content: Title, introduction, evidence, stories, summary, and ending.
  • Style: Deliver the content: Focus, body language, energy, word choice, pace.
  • Spark: Quickly build rapport, credibility, and enthusiasm, with the audience. 
  • Self Confidence: Project calmness, competence, and command.

This webinar will focus on each of these “Five S’s” as well as provide practical and innovative speaking techniques that will help the anxious beginner, who wants to be the best presenter they can be, as well as the more experienced, who wants to gain some new tips to incorporate in their future presentations.

Why should you attend?

Being able to deliver an effective presentation is a critical skill in today’s workplace. It could be speaking to a large group of peers or employees, or addressing a major client or prospect, or even influencing senior management to fund a project; or some other situation that can impact your credibility as an effective manager or leader.

If this thought makes you nervous, you are not alone. Jerry Seinfeld tells a hilarious joke about how many of us are so terrified of public speaking that we would rather be in the casket at a funeral versus delivering the eulogy. 

The “Good News” is you can quickly develop the skills to present yourself as a prepared, poised, and professional speaker! This webinar will provide you with winning tips and techniques to conquer your nervousness; or the fear that someone might stump you with a hard question; or the anxiety that you may come across as a boring speaker who puts the audience to sleep; or other challenges that are holding you back from making effective presentations. So, instead of just talking to the audience, make sure you stand up and deliver with calm, confidence, competence, and command!
