Description

This course is designed to do one thing: Help beginning presenters to gain a ton of helpful knowledge they can apply to advance their skills much faster than they could do with self-teaching. Public speaking isn't really the type of work that people are just naturally good at. They need to work at it and do the right things to engage an audience. If you've never taken a public speaking class before, this will prove to be a thorough introduction to the art that will pay off many times over as you practice and hone your skills.

Who is the target audience?
  • A person ready to improve and deliver better presentations and speeches

Speak Well and Sell

Michael Neuendorff, course creator and presenter, used to be a nervous wreck in front of a group.

You know those work meetings where everyone sits around a table and introduces themselves? Michael had a really hard time with just doing that. In 1998 he got a new job at a big, global company that would require lots of those kinds of meetings. Worse, after the introductions were over he’d have to LEAD the meeting.

Mortified by the prospect of leading meetings and making presentations regularly he sought out help. He went to Dale Carnegie and had a breakthrough. He stopped being a nervous wreck and actually started to enjoy presenting a teeny bit.

After that Michael went to Toastmasters for 5 years. Then, he took multiple focused training sessions with Patricia Fripp, Steve Siebold, Craig Valentine, Darren LaCroix, Ed Tate and other big names in speaking. All told Michael has studied public speaking for the better part of 19 years. That’s commitment.

Michael’s also a working speaker who is in demand to present on a variety of topics for people in business. Thus, he’s always honing his craft to discover new techniques and ways of improvement that he can bring to his classes and 1 on 1 clients.
