“Hair is the first
thing. And teeth is the second. Hair and teeth. A man got those two
things, he’s got it all.”
Those are the words
of the Godfather of Soul, the recently departed James Brown. And
while he probably wasn’t talking about public speaking, to our mind
he was making a point about how to make an impression on audiences.
And that point is this: how you look matters. And James Brown looked
gooooooood. To view a video of

At Speechworks, we
think that to connect with audiences you have to have both style and
substance. But we agree with James Brown that appearance matters.
That’s why we spend much of our workshops, showing you how you look
on camera and coaching you in how to look better.
In our workshops,
we focus on two areas:
How to organize a
message that is tight, simple and focused on audience needs.
Speechworks teaches a simple Formula for focusing on listener
needs. We believe that if you have strong content, you will be
more confident when you get up to speak.
How to deliver
the message in a style that connects with the listeners. We focus on eye
contact, gestures, voice energy, and facial energy. Our coaches
will give you private feedback on where you most need to improve.
