“The easiest way to attract a crowd is to let it be known that at a given time and a given place someone is going to attempt something that in the event of failure will mean sudden death.”

Those are the words of the great magician and escape artist Harry Houdini. And his words bear consideration when you’re putting together a presentation.

No, we’re not suggesting that you tease the audience with the prospect of witnessing a horrible death. But if you want to get the crowd excited about your presentation, make sure that they know you’re going to address a topic that they can get excited about.

In our workshops, we help you learn how create presentations that will excite your audience. 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.

Consider attending an upcoming workshop. We’ll help you learn how to get your crowd excited.
