Be a part of this studio and prepare yourself for an interview, a presentation, a promotion or for leadership
In the speaker’s studio every participant brings in something they are working on - a presentation, a keynote, a tedtalk, a josh talk, or nothing at all, only the passion, enthusiasm and energy for becoming an awesome public speaker.
Or maybe you're preparing for an interview, a board meeting or an investor pitch. Maybe you want to be promoted - or you have recently been promoted - and you realize (or your boss helped you realize) that it's time to work on your communication skills. And you know you can do something better - I mean, we all can do something better - you're just not sure what. So,
Is your presence communicating what you intend it to communicate?
Is your content clear and engaging?
Is what you are saying relevant to the audience?
What do you want to accomplish and is your body & content helping you get there?
Sometimes it's as simple as - CAN WE HEAR YOU?!
Will initiate you into the wide wonderful world of effective public speaking, where you will learn the skills and techniques that will make your presentations and speaking engagements sparkle.
Additionally you receive coaching and feedback. And coaching. You are given exercises to try. You step out of your comfort zone. You try something new. You begin to experience new thoughts, new energy and new approaches. Then you try again. Only this time, you are more awesome. This time you have found a piece of your process.
A process that will lead to the outcome you want to achieve - confident, authentic communication, a successful interview, a top-notch presentation.
The Speaker’s Studio, provides an opportunity to practice, to receive coaching from one of the greatest exponent of public speaking, Jamal Shah, and feedback from your peers in the group. And you will get a chance to synthesize the feedback and apply the coaching in real time. Sometimes the exercises are physical in nature. Sometimes they are mental. Sometimes it’s a breathing exercise or visualization. Sometimes they are goofy or downright silly - but they are always effective.
