Public Speaking - The Money's in the Template
The best public speakers in the world all agree on one thing. You canít get good at public speaking without practice. Thatís where some public speaking training seminars fail in teaching people how to do successful presentations. Lecturing someone on how to do a presentation will not make a student learn any faster. If you learn by doing, you'll achieve much higher results!
After several years of public speaking engagements, teaching seminars and performing piano music for worldwide audiences, I woke up one day and realized I didnít know the first thing about public speaking. That seems like an odd thing to say but itís true. How did I know I wasnít any good at it? Because, I didnít "feel" successful at it.
Then, as luck would have, I reluctantly and skeptically attended a seminar my wife dragged me too. I thought to myself, Iíve been doing this forever and I donít need to learn anything. But, I went anyway. And boy, am I ever glad I did. For the first time in my life I witnessed a public speaking genius at work. This man was truly amazing. He had every one of the 2,000 people in that audience on the edge of their seats for three entire days!
That was the turning point for me. At that seminar I realize why I didn't feel like a successful speaker. I resolved myself to learn everything I could about being successful, not only as a public speaker but as a concert performer. And, overnight I went from being a know-it-all to a learn-it-all. I decided to invest in a seminar that promised to teach how to do successful public speaking presentations. Wow! It was even better than their first seminar. It was five entire days of learning, jamb packed with the most incredible public speaking knowledge imaginable.
What happened next is the truly amazing part! As soon as I got home I started incorporating my new found knowledge into my concert piano performances. The result? My audiences began to grow exponentially and my sales of CDs and DVDs went through the roof. Plus, my fee for performing grew to ten times what I was getting previously.
So, I took the knowledge and experience and began my own seminar business. I first started teaching what I knew and was successful at including how to increase your leads and sales through internet marketing, how to succeed in the niche music business, how to sell off the stage and the inner game of success.
What does this all mean for you? If I could use public speaking training to improve my sales, so can you!
The secret formula that I use for my public speaking presentations works great for keynote speeches, training seminars, sales presentations, live concerts, fundraising speeches, wedding speeches, board room presentations, employee motivation, employee training, pitching, team building, networking and virtually every other public speaking and presenting situation you can think of.
What is this amazing secret formula?
ITíS NOT ABOUT YOU, ITíS ABOUT THE AUDIENCE!
What does that mean exactly? Well, the vast majority of performers and public speakers are far too concerned about how they speak, about how they look, how they perform and how they sell themselves. This is 100% guaranteed to have less impact! In fact, if youíre out there trying to sell yourself, think again, few will buy!
Based on my experience, once I started to make the audience the star I generated more audiences, more results, and more money. This was real world proof that the template works! At first using the template felt strange, because of course, the template felt unfamiliar and was very different than anything I had previously tried. But, after only a few engagements, I was able to merge my personality with the template.
With practice, the template began to feel natural and effortless. Now, I use the template for every type of presentation. In fact, I recently did a boardroom sales presentation for a corporation and walked out with a ,000 deal. How did I do it? The TEMPLATE!
Here's where you can start. First be open to learning! Then learn the perfectly powerful speaker's template. Then learn by doing. It's that easy! Don't forget to make the audience the star and youíll realize just how rewarding and profitable public speaking can be.
