The Art & Science of Being Influential

If you’re required to give speeches and presentations as part of your business, your career, or your passion, then this program is exclusively designed just for you.

Those called on to be public speakers, presenters, and workshop trainers and facilitators fall into one of 3 categories:

1. They lack full confidence in their ability and skill and agonize about how they will be perceived.
2. They don’t lack confidence, but regrettably aren’t competent. They talk too much without saying anything; have mediocre content or substance; and/or unable to engage their audience.
3. They are fully confident in the value they offer and skilled in the ability to be dynamic, utilize slides for good, not evil, and use stories to influence and drive home their message.
In my experience, fewer than 10% of “professional” speakers fall into the last category. The reason? They are good at what they do, yet don’t put the work into conveying their passion and talents to others that need to hear it.

Speaking is about being influential. That requires both strategy and tactics; it doesn’t happen simply because you can string sentences together. It certainly doesn’t involve reading slides to a bored audience that will soon be texting and reading their email.

Being influential is about delivering your message in a cogent, confident, and engaging manner. The end result is that your audience is better off for having heard you and they have a call to action to either improve themselves and/or their organizations, or become affiliated with your cause.

Bottom line – speaking is about influencing and you must apply both art and science.

Here’s the great news…I can help you with both!

Who would benefit from being a better speaker?
• Executives that must present to board of directors, investors, shareholders, and employees
• Business leaders that speak to groups, associations, and businesses
• Consultants and other professional service providers that use speaking as part of their business
• Executive directors for Non-Profit and Charity organizations
• Authors of any genre
• Celebrities like athletes and entertainers that use speaking as part of their additional interests and business
• Politicians

You have three options to choose from with my Unleashed Speaking program. Each one will help you see immediate results.

Just the thought of public speaking used to have me shaking with anxiety. Working with Dan was the best decision I made to prepare for speaking in front of an audience. He had practical, easy to implement suggestions that we applied to my presentation that helped me capture my audience's attention and had them engaging more than I had ever experienced. I look forward working with him again soon.
