Take Your First Step to Improving Your Speaking Skills

take a stepI am opening up this program to 20 Founding Members. As part of this group, you’ll gain lifetime access to a special learning portal, a private Facebook group, and direct access to me. Future groups will not have as much personalized guidance.

This program is not for everyone, however. You need to

  • Be prepared to face your fears and push your boundaries.
  • Attend weekly group meetings (held on weekends to accommodate those who have day jobs).
  • Commit to completing assignments in a timely manner.
  • Provide feedback so that the program can give you better results.

You will also need to be able to invest in yourself and your project. Although this first group will receive a reduced fee for the program, it is still not inexpensive. In addition, the Founding Members’ group is only open to the first 20 people who are accepted into the program. After those seats are filled, you can be put on a waiting list for next year’s group.

If you have heard your speaking call to adventure and are ready to start your quest to become a confident speaker, I invite you to set up your application call today. You don’t need to do this alone. Let me guide you on your quest.

Yes! I'm ready to be a better speaker!

NOTE: To make sure that you are serious about this opportunity, there is a $25 fee for scheduling this appointment. If you are accepted into the program, that fee will be applied to your total tuition. If this is not a good fit for you, I will happily refund the fee. If you miss your appointment, your fee is forfeit.

Don’t let speaking anxiety keep you from success.

Still undecided?

questionsThis is a rare opportunity to get semi-private speaking coaching in a supportive group. But I understand that you may be reticent to take this step. Most hero’s say “no” to their Call to Adventure at first. Sometimes it is because they are unsure they have the right stuff. Sometimes it is because they are unsure of their mentor. Sometimes it is because they are not sure this particular path will take them to their goals. Are these questions swirling around in your mind?

Let me ease your fears.

You have the right stuff!First, I know you have the right stuff. Why? Because not only is speaking a learned skill that anyone can improve, but also because I’ve been there. I’ve stood in front of a group and had my ears burn, my mind go blank, my hands sweat, my knees quake, and all the other symptoms of speaking anxiety. This is why overcoming your fear of speaking and managing the symptoms of anxiety are an integral part of this program.

Not all techniques will work for all people, so I will train you in a variety of methods for overcoming speaking anxiety so that you can use the ones that work best for you.

Second, I know I have the chops to help you become a better speaker. I’ve been involved with public speaking for more than 20 years. I’ve won awards for some of my presentations. I’ve written a book on the subject. And I don’t sit on my laurels — I’m continuously honing my skills and challenging my personal limits. You can read more about my Speaker Superhero’s Journey on my bio page.In addition, I’ve been trained in how to train, I’ve taught several adult education courses, and have mentored several speakers successfully.

Finally, how can the Public Speaking Superhero’s Journey program help you reach your goals? Let me go into more detail about what you’ll get as a Founding Member of this program.

  • Lifetime access to a special learning portal.
    This will be like your own personal Fortress of Solitude where you’ll find video lessons, worksheets, planners, checklists and more. All the tools you’ll need to assist you in your quest will be stored here.
  • A private Facebook group.
    This is where you can network with your fellow Founding Members and learn from each other. It will also be a place where you can post questions on the fly that you need me to answer. However, because this is a group forum, you’ll also gain the wisdom of your fellow students.
  • Direct access to me.
    Not only will I be there for you in the private Facebook group, but I will also hold weekly group coaching calls via Zoom. And, as a Founding Member, you’ll also have a 45-minute private coaching call with me in which we will discuss where you are, where you want to be and how you can get there.

But wait! Just like the old Ginsu Knives commercials, there’s more! You’ll also have:

  • A Founding Members only retreat.
    Held in a cozy location (to be determined), we will gather together to put into practice the skills that you’ve honed during the program. You’ll receive feedback. You’ll receive support. And you’ll get to meet the awesome friends you’ve made virtually during the program. In addition, if you wish, your presentation — once polished — can be recorded so that you can use it however you like.
  • An autographed, hard-cover edition of Public Speaking Super Powers.
    I’ll personally sign a copy of my book, just for you, and ship it to you with some other surprise goodies. This book will be a great reference for the program, in addition to your access to the learning portal.
  • A Group Tailored Experience.
    Because this will be the first time this program is offered, you will be in a unique position to help shape the content of the program. I will regularly ask for your feedback so that I can make this the best and most useful experience possible. If something isn’t working or not clear, tell me and I’ll fix it!

So, what are you waiting for? You have nothing to lose and so much to gain! Start your no-obligation application process today!
