What Happens When You Just Say “Yes”
Recently I was asked to speak in public. Well, what’s the big deal there? I hear you say. Isn’t that what you do? And of course, you are right – it is. BUT. This was a real stage, with real people! And like a lot of people, I haven’t done that for a while.
Looking back with my speaker coach’s eye on my performance – there were about 37 places for improvement. And that’s OK because as I always teach my clients, you don’t have to be perfect, just passionate.
I put the video up on YouTube and it’s had over 1500 views already in less than a week. And I have already appeared in front of another 100 people, after being invited to speak to this group of people – who were watching the video!
The best way to show people you can help them – is to help them – as my friend Carole always says.
Now, why do I love speaking? For many reasons, but probably the most compelling for me is that I want to help people find their WHY – because when they don’t, they end up living someone else’s.
You need a compelling reason to do things that are (initially) out of your comfort zone, as public speaking was for me less than 10 years ago.
So whatever your WHY is – you need to get yourself out there, speaking on stage, speaking to camera, speaking on lives. And if getting your own WHY out there is not enough, what this week has emphasised is that speaking is one of the best positioning tools there is.
Now we are going to be speaking about positioning for the next couple of weeks and why it is crucial for any entrepreneur to position themselves, so look out for next weeks blog.
In the meantime – I want to give applause and plaudits (yes I know – a big word for me that!) to all the participants at the last Sensational Speaker Positioning Day, and let you know that July’s date is now full.
However, all is not lost. The September date still has some places available – to find out more email me at email@example.com.
Here’s a reminder of what’s included in the Sensational Speaker Positioning Program package.
This is an exciting day where you come into your power. It starts with a conversation with me, to find out if we are a fit. Working together over the following weeks we will create your powerful keynote which you will deliver live, and have professionally recorded on the day.
You will also be interviewed by me – a bit Graham Norton style but without the Graham Norton Sauvignon Blanc (unless you want to bring your own!!). This is also recorded by a professional videographer, which you can use for your marketing.
And lots of other great stuff happens – including you becoming a published author without having to write a word!!
Click on this webinar and find out how this all works.
In the webinar, I talk about some of the women on our last Sensational Speaker Day – the issues that they were struggling with, and how they overcame them. I will tell you more about how the process works, and what is involved, including the investment required.
If you think it is time to become the go-to expert in your industry without coming off as a show-off, without giving free support and advice, and without creating a boring PowerPoint presentation then watch the webinar now.
