Hello fellow business leader
If you want to have "executive presence", this might be the most important letter you read. Here's why....
Communicating in a simple, concise and clear way can be scary if you feel your public speaking skills are not keeping pace with best practices.
I know how you feel. My first business presentation scared me to death. Even now, after more than 30 years of being a senior executive and consultant to others, I sometimes feel I could do better if I had a few tips from other successful business executives I see at industry functions.
Across the internet there are any number of products to help people in business promote their organisations and businesses by speaking well in public - whether that means a team meeting, a boardroom presentation or a conference for thousands.
What I offer is very specific. This is not about "selling from the platform". My approach is only for those who want to be able to personally present information as professionally as possible.
Naturally I cover the area most people find their biggest stumbling block to public speaking – nerves. I will show you how to recognise your individual symptoms and in genuinely assessing the causes, work out strategies to minimise your nerves for each and every presentation. After all, shouldn’t you be enjoying this activity as much as your audience?
For those who prefer to learn by listening rather than reading, I have a series of Podcasts in continuous production. Each of these covers a subject I have found useful for everyone making business presentations.
They are generally less than 10 minutes long so you can listen whilst in the car, at the gym or waiting in line for a coffee! And rather than continually check back here on the site for new episodes, you can subscribe free via Stitcher (Android or iOS) and also by using the RSS feed on the site.
Visit the Podcasts page by clicking here.
You need to be committed to developing your presentation skills. You need to be ready for the challenges that this will bring. You need to be ready to embrace the opportunities that your new skills will provide.
As a first step, I recommend you download my 7 step summary today.
Wishing you every success with your business presentation
P.S I have a very limited number of business presentation skills coaching clients each year. This is intense coaching, provided in person, one to one at a time that is convenient for you. When you are ready to make your business presentation the one that everybody wants to hear, the first step is to organise a strategy call with me.
I do not charge for the strategy call. I offer this free service because I am a public speaking coach and I work exclusively with senior business executives. Before we go any further you need to know I can't help everybody. My coaching services can only help senior executives who regularly make presentations or speeches, particularly those who haven't had the opportunity or time, until now, to focus on fine tuning their public speaking skills.
If this sounds like you, here's what you do next. To schedule a free strategy call with me, simply fill out the form below. It has a few questions about your current presentations and speech activities and what you are looking to improve or eliminate. I'll do some planning for you and then we'll set up a convenient time to go over it together in your free strategy call.
