Fear is an emotion that even the best public speakers feel. In the video, we talk about how the most effective speakers deal with that fear. Hint: Mindfulness and experience are important pieces of the puzzle!

Overcoming Fear

If you don't understand your audience you are going to lose their attention very quickly! This video describes what to think about while preparing your speech so that you can keep them engaged.

Understanding The Audience

After watching this video you will be ready to:

  • Create Powerful Speeches By Breaking Them Down Into 3 Sections
  • Prepare Your Speech For Maximum Audience Engagement
Organizing Your Speech

In this video, we dive into body language, which is actually 55% of all communication (language is only 7%!) This is an essential topic to master, as no matter how good your content is, if you don't have good body language during your speech, it will fall flat.

Body Language

Um... Err... But... All of these 'filler words' make you sound unprofessional on stage and make it clear that you are a new speaker. You'll want to eliminate these mistakes from your speeches as soon as possible. Watch this video to learn how!

Filler Words

Emotional engagement is the fuel to the fire of a powerful speech. If you don't care about what you're talking about, the audience can tell. In this video, we show you how to engage your emotions in your speeches.

Emotional Engagement

Your voice can keep an audience engaged, or put them to sleep...

Depending on your tone you can show strength, or weakness...

Watch this video to learn how to manage your voice and keep listeners hanging on your every word!

Vocal Tonality and Range

The human mind loves stories. We go into the structure of an engaging story, and talk about why stories are essential to a memorable speech.


Making eye contact with your audience keeps people engaged with your message. Do it the wrong way, however, and you can appear weak. Or worse... creepy!

In this video we describe how to use eye contact to show strength, be more convincing, and keep your listeners connected with your message.

The pause is an underutilized trick which is in the arsenal of all quality speakers. Watch the video to find out how to use it to maximum effect!

The Pause

A major mistake that new speakers make is assuming that, because they are on stage, they are the only person who should be heard. Droning on like a dry lecturer, their audience is half asleep before their speech is half over!

By engaging with your audience you can keep the energy high and share your message on a more personal level. This video reveals the best ways you can interact with your audience!

Audience Engagement

Contrary to popular belief, you don't always need to dress professionally while giving a speech. Watch the video to find out why!
