A little more than 70% of the people I present to across the world will also be giving public presentations to others at some point this year.
Sales people of all kinds including insurance agents, realtors, online marketers, people using video online as part of their business and so on. In fact people using video online for marketing or group presentations is growing rapidly in 2012. About half of these people will become the subject of pity from an audience. Those that aren’t, usually end up disliked more than when they got up in front of the group. Such is the reason why speaking in front of another or a group is the greatest fear there is today in the English speaking world.
Because no one has shown them how to be a captivating presenter. No one has taken the time to show them the skills of the master.
Today I want to give you some tips and strategies along with a complete mindset that will boost your success in front of an audience.
Prep Like a Pro
About 1/3 of all problems in presenting to an audience come down to preparation in one way or another.
Thorough preparation and proper presentation are prime factors.
First and foremost, there always should be a good reason for making a presentation or “giving a speech.”
Your talk must be timely. Too many speeches not only are poorly planned but also are lacking in purpose. They bore the audience and often leave them wondering what the presenter was thinking…
If you have a choice about what you are going to present, think in terms of “timely.” People are in the moment more today than they were 15 years ago. Select timely subjects and discussion points. Whatever subject matter you are going to speak about, learn all you can about it, for persuasively communicating knowledge that can be used by another, is power.
Until you master your subject you cannot master your audience, for a speaker deep in doubt carries no conviction. He not only must believe in the idea he seeks to sell, but he must present it logically.
In our Professional Speakers Course, participants learn to tell stories from their life and hone them to be engaging for listeners. Most people are masters of their personal life history but few people can tell a story about their life and hold the attention of the room while doing so.
A big problem speakers have is lack of mental organization. They just don’t know what they are going to talk about without reading it from Power Point or knowing their material like they know that personal history.
I’ve been in audiences where speakers read straight from a document…for the entire presentation. This is true for online presentations as well. Rehearsed is good. Reading is bad. Very bad. Never do this! Throw away your speech and use only a few words for “trigger” notes!
With rare exception, I personally don’t go to these events any more. It’s mind boggling to think that ANYONE would be interested in listening to someone read to them other than Garrison Keillor or their own child…and sometimes not even the child….
Mastery means you know your subject cold.
Now don’t confuse this with having a cheat sheet handy. The cheat sheet contains 10-15 WORDS on it that will get you back on track.
If you know where you are going you don’t need to read from a piece of paper. Probably the biggest reason people prepare such wordy power points is they experience fear.
Since I was very young through most of my adulthood, I’ve suffered from Panic Disorder. Panic Disorder for the purpose of this discussion is like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. In current times, once every couple of years, I might have a panic attack on stage, live, in person, so I’m very familiar with fear that can’t be controlled.
When something like that happens, the body goes into fight/flight and prefers not to communicate or think. A panic attack can last 20 minutes and then it goes….but those minutes are like hours.
Back in 1987, panic disorder was a a big part of the reason I wanted to be in public speaking was BECAUSE I had panic disorder and I knew the only way to truly fight the fears and feelings that come with panic attacks, was to put myself in the most vulnerable position of all. Ultimately the life strategy worked and the world is a much safer place to be today.
When you know your material and know it like your biography, even a panic attack can only side track you for a few moments. Because you know the material so well, you simply pull out your cheat sheet (or look up on the flip chart) and see where you “want to go next.”
I typically keep a 15 word cheat sheet, which I make the night before I present, in my coat pocket. I pull it out perhaps once per year.
Make a Connection
Mastery allows you to do one thing when you are on stage. Bond with your audience.
Nothing matters more than truly caring about your audience, being with them, being vulnerable with them. Being open and honest with them. Letting them get to know you in story and sharing what you have with them so they go home with a list of “take-aways” a mile long.
The Excellence Formula…
Self Confidence Causes Persistence Which Causes Excellence
Self-confidence comes as a natural consequence of careful preparation and mastery.
Any normal person can become a successful public speaker if she allows herself to be natural and if she observes certain cardinal canons of presenting to an audience. Of course she becomes better by working at it, but many talents are lost to the world for want of courage. The woods would have little music if no birds sang except those that sang best.
To become an effective speaker, you must develop presentations well and you must constantly test your material by taking every opportunity to speak publicly. More than any other human activity, this is learned by doing and improved by practice.
The first public speaking lesson, just as the first swimming lesson, requires gathering up enough confidence to try. A library of literature on swimming techniques, knowing which direction is shore, is without meaning until the beginner shakes off his shakes. Until the swimmer (or speaker) discovers that what he fears is not the water (or the audience) but himself, he is lacking in confidence and further effort is a waste of time.
Keep it SHORT
I tell everyone I teach that if you are speaking in conjunction with a number of other speakers and you want to make the best impression, go FIRST or LAST and where everyone else will bore the bejesus out of the audience, you will KEEP IT SHORT and save your audience by letting them out of the torture they are probably facing… EARLY.
Rule of thumb? It’s usually torture if the people are not paying to be there.
Keep it short, go last, be vulnerable, you will be the hero of the day.
If you are a rookie at speaking before an audience, say, OK folks, this is my first time before an audience, so if I fall down, help me back up….and then get to it.
Don’t freak out because you’re a novice… you just might may make a hit by acknowledging that fact.
You should always start your presentation with either a timely story or a personal story that is SHORT and funny.
Don’t tell jokes. You will always “offend” some whiney audience member who appears to be paid to be offended…
Make light of yourself, be self-deprecating, let your story speak for itself….never tell the MORAL of the story or people will feel (and rightly so) that you are arrogant enough to think that you need to tell them the moral…that they are too dang stupid to figure it out for themselves….
Fight Your Fright
Even after the initial lesson, almost everyone who rises to speak suffers some degree of stage fright. Many outstanding speakers admit they are nervous before every performance or presentation. If this is you too, realize it’s NORMAL.
When a speaker is fully informed on his subject, he knows more about it at the moment than anyone present, and that thought in itself should give you great comfort.
Fear happens when you self-evaluate.
I do this sometimes, if I think an audience is sitting on their hands or aren’t laughing when they SHOULD be laughing.
But the fact is that there are a lot more variables in a room than you and the audience. You have no idea what happened that day with the organization or company or if someone got fired. WHATEVER, remain vulnerable and be with your audience 100% until you have completed what you have to say.
A good presentation goes wrong when you’re up there thinking, “Huh, I think she’s looking at me like I’m weird, screwed up, that she knows I am nervous, that she thinks I’m wrong….” WHATEVER. LOOK AT SOMEONE ELSE.
The speaker who has a full understanding of his subject literally radiates confidence.
The chances are quite good that no matter how bad you think you are “doing,” you’re probably doing fine if you are well prepared and the authority on the subject at hand.
The Golden Key to Profits…
Where Do You Hold Your Pre-Season Games?
In the month of August, Pro Football teams all over the country hold their “Pre-season games.” They are real games with real hitting and injuries, but they don’t count because they are practice.
You do the same thing.
Luncheon clubs, lodge meetings, military orders, and community gatherings, afford any speaker plenty of opportunities to practice their craft. Speak to Civic and Service Club Forums. This is how I started and I am VERY GLAD that I did.
Finally, in Pre-season, remember there are injuries…the hitting is real. But because the games don’t count, you might as well…
I’m like everyone else. I hate criticism. I don’t like some Joe telling me what I did wrong or how to do it “right,” BUT every piece of criticism YOU GET, says something about YOU, the person giving you the feedback and the connection between the two.
In NLP, they say that the meaning of the communication is the result you get.
You aren’t responsible for the entire communication. Audience members bring in biases, attitudes and personal psychological problems that can make for a challenging day for any speaker.
BUT, learning what that goofball in the audience tells you allows you to KNOW that you’ll have people in the audience in the future thinking the SAME THING. That means you can PREPARE for it and use Omega Strategies (See The Science of Influence: Tactics and Techniques of Persuasion) to disarm these threats long before you get heckled.
Public Speaking…The Golden Key to Power and Profits
Today, the majority of salespeople communicate their ideas as clearly as did most Presidential Contenders did at the turn of the century. In 2012, high achieving people must not only have a good command of the language, they must have a powerful and charismatic presence.
Achievers must express themselves clearly and fluently in commonplace business conversation, across the conference table, or from a speaker’s platform. The world has changed a lot in the last century…the skills of success are evolving…
To succeed today, you have no choice but to be able to speak effectively. The identical rules that a public speaker observes apply to the professional who wants to reach C-level positions.
Part of what causes excellent speakers to be persuasive is simply being able to articulate the other person’s viewpoint (no matter how inconsequential) and giving it great consideration.
Studies have accumulated in the past few years and they clearly reveal that resistance is derailed by being able to point out weaknesses in one’s own self, platform, service or product and being able to say something good about the competitor, if anything at all.
Think about it – the most successful trial lawyer is the one who can set out the opponent’s case more clearly than the opponent’s own attorney. Right?
What Some Think Is the Unforgivable Sin…and What it Really Is
I’m like every speaker who isn’t a scripted actor. I can be distracted and have my train get derailed.
A lot of speakers are terrified of such a moment. The fact is, it’s next to unimportant.
It’s pretty human and happens to the best.
But, if your mind wanders from the MESSAGE you hope to convey and you wonder whether the audience is impressed by your platform appearance, studied gestures or polished delivery, you will lose their attention….THAT is the unforgivable sin….
They are not interested in your evaluation of your own showmanship — only in the idea you came to convey and your own vulnerability.
If you can give that…you win…and so do they.
People Prefer to Listen to…
How do you Convey Ideas?
When a speaker has certainty in his message and is eager to have his listeners share it, what he says rings with sincerity. The sincere person has won half the battle.
The truly sincere speaker who conveys his message merely by expressing his thoughts in a clear, orderly and articulate manner WILL PERSUADE.
When it’s his turn to talk, he’ll rise and shine. He leaves the bogus approaches to the professional politicians.
Bargain of Public Speaking
As long as people remain connected and hold conventions and meetings, you and I will exchange ideas.
As long as people need a medium for exchanging ideas, public speaking will be necessary. The best thing, perhaps, about speaking is that it’s such an unbeatable bargain. If you have a dollar and I have a dollar and we exchange dollars, we will each still have one dollar; but if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange ideas, we will each have two ideas.
The value of experience in public speaking cannot be estimated in dollars and cents for it accumulates intangible assets. It develops an enormous amount of business and advances the professions. It’s a public relations format that brings massive returns.
Communities look to people who talk well and convincingly for leadership. The person who can express an idea clearly becomes a V.I.P.
Their presence and their opinions are sought at public functions. A speaker may acquire more prestige in five minutes of successful public speaking than in five years of grinding work.
Have you ever noticed how the person who receives the most favorable attention and who commands the greatest respect is the one who delivers a few well-chosen words on some subject under discussion?
He is the one that is remembered long after the regular “attender” is forgotten.
Effective Speakers Become Leaders
Public speakers are perceived as leaders.
The people who run a country are those who speak with emotion, communicate well and fluently convey important ideas. More people have talked themselves into prominence than have gained world renown through all other fields of endeavor combined.
Some people play down the influence of persuasive speakers, yet you cannot escape the fact that a good speaker frequently takes over a critical situation, grabs the reins and rides in the driver’s seat.
An intelligent business person accepts the inevitable; instead of resisting public speaking, he becomes one of them. The ability to speak well can carry an individual far in the capacity of an interesting conversationalist.
Take any group of people…. the persons they prefer to hear are those who have something to say and know how to say it.
The same instincts that make people turn and listen to the articulate individual in private conversation, make you and I turn and listen to public speakers. The ability to say something articulately is likewise the ability to give lucid directions on a job, instructions to subordinates, and followed suggestions in the home.
How to tell or sell an interesting topic is the elusive goal of many and the coveted secret of few, yet it’s an ability within the reach of all.
Holding Their Attention …
For the shy or dry, a little preparation can add wit and sparkle to speech.
Very few comedians are naturally, spontaneously funny. They need one-liners and superb delivery to put them over. With few exceptions, entertainers follow their scripts so closely they don’t ad lib so much as a sneeze – yet many of them rack up reputations as clever personalities when in reality they’re cashing in on the creativity of their writers.
This doesn’t mean you need to be scripted, but it does mean that the stories you tell should be those you have successfully told over and over.
Some “older” speakers still depend upon eloquent language and rather bombastic delivery to excite their listeners, but their style is fading fast. The televangelist is rarely believed in 2017…and it’s a good thing…
A few still get away with the con, but the reality is that when a sincere speaker presents his ideas, when he believes what he says and sincerely tries to sell the idea, he automatically speaks clearly, calmly, and properly places his pauses. His sincerity puts across his talk; and when his talk goes over, he’s a good speaker.
The change in emphasis from emotionalism to straightforwardness has materially promoted interest in public and professional speaking. As more people learn how to become competent speakers, the impact of public speakings value becomes obvious.
Fewer people hesitate to convey a thought when the thought rather than its conveyor captures the attention of the audience.
Private Conversation and Public Speaking
This is probably the key to my success on stage. I’m VERY VULNERABLE on stage. Being authentic provides many advantages and one disadvantage. By being open, forthright, honest, ….there WILL BE people in the audience who flat out don’t like you…but it’s a lot easier to be me…than it is to be anyone else…
The biggest difference between private conversation and public speaking is that in a presentation there is no exchange of remarks. (At least, you hope that’s the case!)
Other than that, the speech is conversation addressed to more than one listener. A good example is when a man is talking to one individual and another person joins them. More people are attracted and as the group grows, the conversationalist is no longer carrying on a conversation, he’s making a speech. He must raise the volume of his voice so that he can be heard yet he should retain the informal manner which is the most effective style.
Learning how to communicate to a group and hold attention consistently is another story, but the fact is that people who recognize that a group is like a person with a shorter attention span will help you prepare for group presentations.
And the core is the well-told story. I’ll save that creation of masterpiece for the Professional Speakers Course!

“How to Start, Build and Make
“Kevin, this week I secured a further 12 speaking engagements. This is the start of my career and I want to speak wherever I can. However, get this…I am also speaking at two large engagements with 500 and 600 attendees respectively. I am just doing everything you told me to do. I am getting myself out there in every shape and form and it all is beginning to happen. I am on the edge of some great things. I owe so much of this to you, Kevin (and that is underplaying it)!” Adam Eason, www.adam-eason.com
The article was written by a staff journalist. Superb writer. Articulate. Makes a good argument. And he could easily be earning 10 times what his paper pays him…easily. Sorry my friend, that was your choice.
Not only is there no reason that you can’t be “overpaid,” I’d be surprised if anything else was the result.
You don’t have to be a dynamite speaker to earn $100,000 per year speaking. You don’t have to have a college degree and you definitely don’t need a decade of experience.
You need a coach with connections and a detailed plan.
You don’t have to be gorgeous (I can show you photos…), intelligent (I can let you listen….) or even “have money to make money.”
I will outline for you in absolute minute detail how you, too, can:
- Control your income level. (Decide how much you want to get paid!)
- Develop programs, products and written material superior to all competitor’s
- Have your own Boot Camp (which is the fastest way for participants to accelerate their career and their lives!)
- Learn why Boot Camps are the best investment per dollar spent for every participant.
- Have knock ’em dead platform skills…inspire…entertain…inform…change lives
- How to use publicity to build your self and your business
- How to position yourself as THE expert in your field
- Use the internet to add enormous amounts of money to your income.
- Give profitable teleseminars that people desperately need
- Dominate your market
- Where the hottest markets are right now

I got paid $500 for my first paid public presentation. Now that may not sound like a lot to you, but this was 1987 when $500…was about twice what it is today. I was 25.
Two years before that presentation, I earned $14,140 as a restaurant manager that worked 54.90 hours per week. (Do the math.) I was not a good manager. To my credit, I was a customer-service-junkie manager. I wanted every customer served at light speed and with the best we had. But I didn’t care if the paperwork was up to date…didn’t care if the drawers added up perfectly at the end of the night. They were always close enough. (If they weren’t I put in my own money and found how the cash disappeared later…) Didn’t care if the coupons were all entered into the registers. I just was not a bookkeeping kind of guy.
I didn’t mind paying lazy employees minimum wage and good employees twice that. But the restaurant did. Employees needed to be paid roughly the same amount of money….How stupid was that?! Lose your best employees to the first real job they find…and I’m stuck with what’s left. I shared that with the regional people. They didn’t like my non-conformist attitude. I confess that I never read “the company handbook.”
That got me into more than occasional trouble. I didn’t know you couldn’t help people with their family problems at home, compliment the lady on how nice she looked that day, tell the guy to get his backside in gear, or bet on the Vikings. I managed “by Mom.” I managed the store like my Mom would have. (And by the way…we were substantially profitable that year over and above the previous year even with bad weather at the holidays!)
I didn’t get fired from THIS job. But I should have. I hated the rules…well I would have if I would have read them. The Regional Manager kept reminding me of the rules. I would almost get ill when I would be lectured about “the rules and policies”. Policy always sounded like Police to me….
“Kudos for your Public Speaking Program. And I never even have to leave the house. I actually love doing in-person presentations, but they aren’t the only way to do things. I also do teleseminars, and I have just launched a new joint venture project with some of the big names in Internet Marketing. I am interviewing 7 of Mark Joyner’s Space Monkeys from his 7 Day Business Turnaround Kit, and Mark himself. The participants include Jason Henderson, Michael Morgan, Tom Justin, Reed Floren, and more. Thank you for the inspiration, the skills, and giving me the courage to make this dream into reality!” Tania Baildon, Wealth Virus Expert
It just wasn’t for me. I quit before finding more ways to get “fired.” (No one was “downsized” in those days.)
I wanted to do something FUN, EXCITING, and something I LIKED. My two co-managers LOVED their work. The place was a perfect fit for them…but not me. I was a square peg and had no intentions of getting any more shaved off on the sides to “make me fit.”
Napoleon Hill sat by my bed every night. (Think and Grow Rich, that is.) I was going to do him proud….
Moving from the point of being a speaker who wanted to “get good,” to a professional was a pretty big step for me. I was going to ask for $500….
I was REALLY young. Why would anyone PAY ME to talk to them?
And once I decided to actually answer that question…
It was 1987 at Moreland Elementary School. I talked to the 400 kids packed into the gymnasium about drug and alcohol use. The good. The bad. The ugly. I was scared to death (almost literally, as I suffered from severe panic disorder in 1987…I had panic attacks 3-6 times per week…they were random…I never knew when they would come.).
I was 25 years old and my life dream was now officially on day one. I didn’t do it alone. I asked for help and I had help. I had a friend helping me. Someone who was as dedicated not to my dream but the message we wanted to share. In fact, there were 2 or 3 people like that. None of us got rich. We weren’t in that frame of mind. We shared a powerful message to people who wanted to hear it…and a lot that didn’t. Later letters and testimonials would show lives saved, endless appreciation, recommendations to other schools and organizations.
Two years later I spoke to South St. Paul High School. $1000. I had an enormous audience of students, teachers, parents. The place was packed. Same subject. But media covered this one. We came up with a neat angle that tied us into a national campaign. That was a very, very good thing because it was the beginning of the next level…
In fact most of my early presentations were all $500-$1,000 per day (several presentations per day at each school). They were in front of schools…kids…the toughest audiences on the planet…and I survived to tell about it!
I don’t have detailed records (what a surprise)… but I did about 15 schools per year for four years. I made more money in those 15 days than I did the entire year in 1986.
“Wow, you really do over-deliver! I have at least 2 months more work to do even after the course is over. I am not complaining…this is GREAT. I have arranged 3 speaking engagements already and I have a blueprint for my future speaking to be successful. Not only have your prepared the soil you have helped water and fertilize it! I previously thought speaking was just speaking, but boy, was I wrong! Thanks for helping me open my eyes – and – giving us tools to manifest what we are learning. All of the add-on information helps us have multiple streams of income as well as better and more effective marketing. What you have delivered is more than what I thought I would receive, and frankly, it is worth more than you charged. I can’t wait to get to the $100K mark…you have already deserved a bonus and the course is not over yet!” Karl W. Ellerbeck, NCMT
I made the audience members’ adrenaline pump. I was unconventional. I did a lot of things most speakers would never do in front of an audience. I was not politically correct. My lack of judgment in content often got me a few scowls but, by-and-large, they liked the 25 year old…
I worked hard to get the dates…next to no one knows how to go from anonymous to known quickly…and I was no exception. I had to learn the hard way. But I learned.
I learned how to get paid even when they didn’t have ANY MONEY. I learned how to get paid and my audience was children, which meant ZERO back of room. I learned how to get paid when there was literally no budget, no allotment, no nothing. Each month went by and I learned another secret. Another insider idea that would pay off over and over again. The kind of stuff no one on the outside would ever think about…which is why they were on the outside and I was in the jungle on safari!
Today…things have moved along nicely. I have been invited to speak literally from London to Australia. It took me an enormous amount of time to learn how to move from level to level. 500 to 1000. 1000 to 1500. 1500 to 2000. 2000 to 4000. 4000 to 5000. 5000 to 10,000.
But the hardest leaps were the early leaps. Constantly having to justify how I could be worth 1000.00 for one day…
And that’s what I want to help you do.
I want to show you how to move from zero to whatever you want to earn. (There is a cap by the way, in what you get paid for speaking. You can do X dates per year. That’s it. There IS a cap so don’t think you will make 100,000,000 just from speaking. You won’t! You simply get paid more than all of your friends and peers and most everyone else…a lot more.)

- How to get them to pay you *in advance*.
- My contract that I use with companies all over the world…I’m going to give it to you.

- How to get nonprofit organizations to pay you when everyone else is speaking for free.

“Kevin, with two thirds of the Professional Speakers Course behind me you continue to challenge and push me beyond limits I did not even realize existed. With over 400 pages of unadvertised course manuals, 20+ hours of recorded training material, continual opportunities for active participation and one third of the training still to come, I cannot fathom what you have left to share! I haven’t even read about a course that contains half of the materials that you have covered to this point, and still say there is more! The opportunity to interact with the other participants really pulled it all together. Thanks…so far.” Murray R. Mortlock, CD, Alberta, Canada
I will hold nothing back. If you need the answer to ANY question you will be able to ask at any time.
The complete plan is here for you. Nothing is left out. No additional secrets. Everything is here. Everything.
The course works like this.
10 people participate (I’d work with 50 if I had the time, desire and energy…it’s not that “space is limited”…it’s not…it’s an E-Course.)
Each week, you’ll receive your lesson for the week. One week it’s a video tape that will arrive in your mailbox. The next week it’s densely packed information and crucial data you get by email. The next week it’s YOU making a video and sending it to me to FIX. Not only will I show you how to present so they WANT YOU BACK, I’ll show you what to do to become a truly SUPERB speaker so they will be talking about you the next day!
Yes. I’m going to show you how I create and develop presentations so that you can literally talk for DAYS and not cover the same story or material twice…all without a script.
This program not only shows you how to make money but…if you choose… how to become one of the best!
Crucial: In order to get feedback on the week’s assignment you MUST get your homework to me by the end of the week. I won’t play catch up with anyone. It’s your life, not mine….and it’s MY LIFE, not yours. I’m dedicated to you, you dedicate to me. If fixing the planter in the back yard is more important than the rest of your life, then don’t register for the course.
At the end of the course, you will have my attention for quite some time because of how I earn my money…
Each participant pays a grand total of $10,000 per person.
I’ll do 100% of the work to get you where you want to be, if you will put a 30% deposit down. (Or less…!)
You enroll for only $2997. (Or choose an easy installment pay plan!)
Then you give me your word (and a signed note) that after you have earned $100,000 in speaking fees, you will pay the balance.
I’m going to write letters of recommendation, take phone calls for you from potential clients, help you in ways that only someone in the field can, and be here for you when you need any holes filled in for you.
If we have corresponded or talked in the past…this is who I prefer to work with. But even if we haven’t as long as you have integrity (total integrity) and a strong desire to succeed, you can participate.
I retain the right to turn down any application for any reason prior to the beginning of the course.
If you want to lead the field, I want to help you. Oh, and if I’m anywhere nearby when you are giving your first speech after you hit the $100,000 mark, I will be there in the audience cheering you on.
Here’s your chance. You’ve always wanted it.
You’ve always dreamed it.
Whether you are 25 or 75…don’t die with your music still in you…this is the opportunity of your lifetime. Let’s have fun together and make some music!
