“Pressure is something you feel when you don’t know what the heck you’re doing.”

Manning recently announced his retirement after a storied 18-year football career. Much of his success can be attributed to being such a dedicated student of the game. He spent countless hours watching game film, learning the playbook, and understanding his opponents. On the field, all of that preparation paid off in the form of hall-of-fame performances week in and week out. He always knew what he was doing, so pressure didn’t get to him.

Great speakers understand that it takes lots of preparation to deliver winning presentations when the pressure is on. That’s why Speechworks’ workshops focus on learning the fundamentals of great presentation skills, and then practicing them until they become second nature. We focus on:

  • How to organize a message that is simple and focused on listener 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 and energy from your face, voice and body. Our coaches will give you private feedback on areas you can improve.
  • How to answer questions in a way that inspires confidence. We teach you to embrace the Q&A portion of any presentation, prepare for the questions ahead of time, and when it coms to your answers, be brief.

Consider attending an upcoming workshop. We’ll help you prepare to deal with the pressure and have your own hall-of-fame performance.
