After 10 years of working in Public Relations for the federal government, I could no longer ignore my inner voice. It became painfully obvious to me, and those around me that I needed to reinvent myself. My yearning to share my gift with the world tugged at my heartstrings to the point where nothing else mattered. Destiny was calling!
I’m sure you have at least heard of the late great King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Can you image M.J. working at the post office or playing professional football? Neither can I. Michael was born to sing and dance. That awkward feeling brought on by thinking of him doing anything else is exactly how I feel when I try to image myself doing something other than speech writing and coaching.
Oddly, my journey to becoming a communications expert began with hip hop music. I have memorized hip-hop songs since I was a teen. This form of mental exercise not only made me a superior listener, it also strengthened my memory, and infused me with a rhythmic story telling style that is strong and persuasive. I don’t condone many of the views of hip hop artists, but I deeply admire their ability to combine words and phrases to convey comprehensive and compelling stories.
No amount of natural ability, education or money can replace your ability to speak well! Whether conversation or presentation, speaking is a skill that is constantly in use. It is arguably the most important factor in gaining and sustaining client relationships. Surprisingly, far too few professionals effectively use speech to advance their ideas or persuade others to their point of view. The ultimate goal of any presentation, no matter what size, is to make a connection. Your words only matter to the extent they evoke emotion.
Do you rivet attention when you speak? Does your conversation draw people in naturally?
I hold nothing back in my speaking and coaching sessions. I was born to share the subtle yet significant secrets that lead to confident, clear and connective speaking.
What could be more valuable than confidently speaking about your brand or offering with a degree of clarity that attracts deep connections?
