“Making clever speeches takes a lot of work and a lot of time.”–Elaine Stritch
The late American actress and singer Elaine Stritch knew what she was talking about. Have you ever listened to an inspiring speech and thought, “I could do that. It seems so easy.”? But here’s a secret: Every rousing speech you’ve ever heard has been rehearsed and practiced and rehearsed and practiced again. And again. And again.
Although persuasive presentations take a lot of work and a lot of time, you can absolutely learn the skills you need to become a polished and professional speaker. I’ve worked with numerous people, teaching them the art and science of public speaking—and I would love to help you, too!
My School of Public Speaking is for anyone who wants to make a difference in the world, who has an idea to share and who is willing to put in the time to become a skilled presenter.
Part of the process includes acquiring wisdom and experience you can share with others. You often spend more time preparing yourself to speak than you spend on preparing a speech. But once you craft a speech that inspires listeners, and you feel that energy flowing between you and your audience, you’ll want to do it over and over.
I can teach you how to overcome the fear of public speaking and how to adapt to different situations. I’ll help you discover your Significant Emotional Experiences, those life lessons you’ve learned, and turn that into a Signature Story that becomes your brand.
By mastering the art of storytelling, you’ll learn to inject humor, data, thought-provoking questions, quotes and even silence into your presentation to take your listeners on a roller-coaster ride of emotions through laughter, tears–and ultimately to connection.
With my public speaking training you’ll learn how to customize your message to your audience, and how to engage each listener through eye contact, voice inflection and body language. You’ll learn techniques, not theories, that will carry you onto the stage with confidence and presence.
The beautiful Elaine Stritch was correct. Clever speeches do take a lot of work and time, but it’s absolutely within your reach. Visit my website DanClark.com for more information.
