There is a lot to consider when it comes to speaking from a stage or effectively communicating in any professional setting for that matter. But it doesn't have to be overwhelming.
In this lesson, I'll outline some simple steps you can take to help you wrap your mind around this idea of becoming a really effective communicator. In this session, we'll look at three keys to help you learn how to communicate with confidence.
How do you stand out from the crowd? What makes you different from everyone else who is called on to speak?

When putting together any kind of talk, whether its five or 45 minutes there are certain things to keep in mind in order to make sure your audience leaves with the takeaway you desire.
This lesson concentrates on the best way to ensure that happens every time.
In this lesson we are going to dive into the importance of "story" as it relates to speaking and presentations.
One of the best ways you can stand out from others is through the use of stories (prefereably personal stories). They are the elements of a talk that separate you from others and make you uniquely you.
We'll also talk about the importance of pacing when it comes to delivering your talk. If you don't understand what I mean by that, hang in there. It will become very clear in this video.

In this lesson, I'll offer some suggestions for easing your anxiety.
Much like nervousness, body language seems to be a top concern to anyone who is considering standing before an audience. What do I do with my hands? How do I stand? Where do I stand? Is everyone staring at me?
