Ready to become a captivating public speaker?
How do you keep an audience captivated; hanging on your every word? Wes is a college professor teaching public speaking to college students at Baker College in Michigan. And he's serious about the fundamentals. Eye contact, movement, and body language are all part of speaking in front of a crowd. Nervous? Don't be. Wes will show you how to command an audience and have them begging for more!
Prep and practice is half of the battle. Nobody likes to watch someone read from a podium. And nobody likes death by powerpoint. Wes will teach you how to outline your key points so that you can speak fluidly and freely without being tied to your notes. Wes also advocates practicing your speeches in a setting that mimics your venue and visiting the actual venue well in advance so you can get a feel for the technology and acoustics.
The old system of starting a speech by reading your resume, followed by an introduction of what you're going to talk about, your actual speech, and then a recap of what you just talked about... is dead, dead, dead. You don't want to put your audience to sleep! Wes will teach you a speech structure that is dynamic and elicits audience participation. Every point should have a story and every story should have a point!
You've just hit a home run and delivered an amazing speech! Time to close like a pro. Selling a book or a service? How about presenting the audience with a Call to Action? And don't forget the Q and A. This is a great opportunity to go off script and really build a personal relationship with your audience.
You can be the best speaker in the world, but if you don't market yourself, no one will know you exist! Wes will show you what you need to do online to get consistent work. This is the start of the speaking career that you have always wanted. Other people can learn from your stories. Time to make the world a better place!
