Want to feel like this at the start of your next presentation?
”You are only one minute into your presentation, and you can already feel the eyes of your audience glued upon you, focused on what you have to say. Somehow, you and/or your topic is commanding attention, and your audience is hanging on your every word. They are exuding a positive anticipation for whatever is coming next. Feels good, doesn’t it? You say to yourself, “Wow! I am really meeting their needs!”
This description of your opening is what we are working toward at NSA-AZ’s Speaker Coaching YOU. Participants are working together to give feedback, offer enriching suggestions, and thereby help each other create an opening of a speech or seminar, or other event where they are comfortable charging a $5000 fee. We have created a specific checklist for preparing and evaluating presentation openings. We will work on other speech parts as well.
If you want to attend: Please register, or just show up and learn vicariously!
If you want to present: Contact Rita ASAP and request a place on the list. email@example.com
If you want to practice for an upcoming booked speech: Also contact Rita and we will try to slot you in ASAP for 15 minutes.
In addition to continuing to provide practice opportunities for openings, we will transition to “First Point” after your opening for those wanting to practice that material. We will see what our attendees needs and desires are at the end of each Studio and adjust our schedule of content to meet them.
