Public speaking: Let’s find your story
People often ask me about my speaker coaching process. They want to know how I get such memorable performances out of my speakers. I don’t wave a magic wand. I’m looking for what I call the nugget: the core of that person’s story that makes them light up. It’s a deeply personal and intuitive process. It’s also a single, big idea.
The story and big idea are unique to each client.
Check out the big ideas of my speakers in their videos. Do their stories speak to you?
