Speaker Boot Camp – November 10, 2018
Master Corporate, Public, and Sales Presentations
We’re all on the “stage” at some point. Using advanced communication skills will have the greatest and most powerful impact on your presentations. Enhance your communication and presentation skills to become a more confident speaker and advance in your career.
- Recognize what distinguishes an excellent speech from a dry presentation
- Learn how to increase audience interaction
- Understand movement, appearance and positioning on the “platform”
- Consider what your appearance might portray about your message
- Learn what makes for excellent slide designs and what harms your message
- Hear key characteristics for the room setup (atmosphere, equipment, music, visuals, and distractions)
- Receive key handouts that include critical tools for your future
You will be exposed to communication skills to enhance your ability to speak “from the front of any room” with poise and confidence.

In some ways, we have all come to expect instant information. But expecting the actual product or service right away? That’s the new normal.
We can illustrate this with search data. Mobile searches related to “same-day shipping” have grown over 120% since 2015 as people are no longer willing to wait even a few days for their order to arrive. We can also see that searches for “same-day shipping” peak first thing in the morning. – Google
Most people are good at communicating but when they get on the stage or in front of the room, they get uncomfortable. Is that you?
On November 10th, I am offering a Speakers Bootcamp for anyone who does presentations in Corporate America. It will be held in Bellevue, Washington.

We each get to choose our friends. We don’t get to choose our family. I choose these qualities, in no particular order, with my friends:
Interesting, Reliable, Honest, Caring, Interested, Authentic, Curious, Ambitious, Compassionate, Observant, Progressive, Aware, Empathetic, and Knowledgable.
What’s on your list?
If you had a choice in your professional life would you rather stand out from the crowd or blend in amongst the average? Standing out can get you the recognition you deserve – blending in, well you can potentially disappear. What works for you?
I have Autism. Neurodiversity resonates with me in particular. The following definition came from the site for The National Symposium on Neurodiversity at Syracuse University. I met a woman in a store with Tourette Syndrome. The clerks were keeping their distance from her and other customers were staring from the loud noise that she was making.
I went up and spoke with her. She was extremely nice and as she spoke and made the loud sounds, she kept apologizing. She was clearly embarrassed. There should be no reason to make her feel embarrased. She can’t control the events. Sadly, many people are not educated on what it means to have Tourette Syndrom. I feel that more education on Neurodiversity is critical. Do you know someone with a condition that should be more tolerated?
“Neurodiversity is a concept where neurological differences are to be recognized and respected as any other human variation. These differences can include those labeled with Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyscalculia, Autistic Spectrum, Tourette Syndrome, and others.”
“For many autistic people, neurodiversity is viewed is a concept and social movement that advocates for viewing autism as a variation of human wiring, rather than a disease. As such, neurodiversity activists reject the idea that autism should be cured, advocating instead for celebrating autistic forms of communication and self-expression, and for promoting support systems that allow autistic people to live as autistic people.”
