A personal message from Laurie Smale, Best-selling author, professional speaker, and Master Speaking Coach:
If you’re really serious about getting rid of your debilitating public speaking fears and being the Confident speaker you’ve always wanted to be, it's absolutely vital you make the time to READ EVERY WORD in the following pages:
This tried-and-proven program has evolved over many years of helping people just like you to overcome their fears of speaking before groups. It is a direct response to questions that crop up again and again, such as: “What do I say?”, “What if I make a fool of myself?”, “What if I go blank?”, “What do I do with my hands?”, “What about my nerves?”, and “Why wasn’t I born with this gift?” Well If you answered “Yes” to any or all of these questions then this revolutionary new approach to public speaking – where you obey none of the ‘rules’ - will put you in control of your own person and set you firmly on a new path of speaking confidence you’ve only ever dreamed about.
This exciting training program is filled with practical examples of people just like you who used to ask these questions, and now communicate with confidence because they now follow the simple steps in this self-paced course. Make no mistake, the more confidence you have in yourself, in your natural talents, and in what you’re talking about, the more engaging you’ll be when speaking before groups! Jam-packed with heaps of tips, easy-to-use strategies and simple self-help monitoring exercises after each segment, this inspirational step-by-step course will show you precisely how to get this confidence, tap into your elusive talents, and be the confident speaker you’ve always wanted to be. Let me tell you why.
Someone who knows what he is talking about wrote this program. I’ve personally lived with the crippling fear – and the ‘fame’ of speaking. My first two decades of public speaking experiences were nothing short of disastrous. I used to wonder why others could speak so easily before groups and I couldn’t. I now know better. Speaking confidence is not some innate quality you’re born with, it’s a way of ‘thinking’, an acquired skill. Confronting my fears, I tentatively worked my way up through the professional ranks of the National Speakers’ Association of Australia to become a proud individual who now speaks for a living – so if I’m not interesting I don’t get paid! It was during this period I discovered my unique ‘obeying none of the rules’ approach to public speaking that people so warmly respond to (this neatly does away with the fear of getting something wrong!). So this course hands you my gold mine of panic-free speaking nuggets on a platter for I’ve done the years of hard work for you. But most important – and this is what makes this course so unique – not only are there no ‘rules’ to get wrong, this system will give you the greatest speaking gift of all, the simple secrets on how to be you.
So you can be assured that this course is not more of the same old ideas that have been bandied around for years. You’ve already had your fill of those. It really is an exciting new approach to public speaking based on my own experiences in ‘obeying none of the rules’ as a speaker, my publications and audio programs, and the unbelievable transformations ‘from fear to confidence’ I’ve witnessed in my coaching sessions over the years. Each idea, each strategy, each concept in this course has been tried, re-tried, refined and proven over many years until it works! Thousands now speak with confidence as a direct result of implementing the practical ideas and inspirations embodied in this program and there’s no reason why you can’t join them!
Find the Confident speaker in you… Once you discover this and stop comparing yourself to others, you’ll be free to concentrate on what your ideas mean to your listeners… and find your very own freedom of expression.
Grab the attention of your audience – and keep it!... Here you’ll address the deadly combination of your adrenalin-rush and your audience sitting there thinking ‘Let’s check this person out!’ By capturing their attention with an arresting opening you’ll instantly take the pressure off you, gain their trust and interest, and have them thinking about things you want them to think about.
Humanise your ideas… You’ll now breathe life into factual, sterile information with examples and case studies people can relate to… this will engage your listeners and keep them with you.
Make friends with your audience… Here you’ll learn how to create a warm environment by coming across as accessible and approachable instead of being a distant, self-focused public speaking clone… and when you’ve finished they’ll want to talk to you (It’s here that you'll make friends – and generate business!).
Ensure your presentation is lively, interesting and informative… People not only enjoy being in the presence of a speaker who is friendly with something to say, they are persuaded by them! Think about your situation and how this will help you?
Finish with impact and on a high note… Many speakers finish in a tentative, wishy-washy way… You’ll learn how to always finish with a crisp, clear, deliberate message so they don’t forget!
Deal with potential problems effectively… Few things ever run smoothly without some glitch… Here you’ll learn how to cope positively with the unexpected so people say, ‘Hey, that was clever!’
Techniques for rehearsing… You’ll learn how to rehearse your talk ‘live’ in your mind’s eye in the comfort of your favourite chair for 10 minutes or so each day for a few days prior to the event… This will create a comfort zone within yourself so you actually believe you’ve successfully been there before. And because you’re in control of the situation you’ll sleep like a baby!
Speak to key ideas instead of cumbersome notes … A boring talk that’s memorized word-for-word and delivered parrot fashion is hard work and impresses no one… Here you’ll learn how to rehearse in a spontaneous way to key ideas so the real you shines through. And this is what your listeners have given up their precious time to experience!
Believable body language… The good news is we are not actors so we don’t have to stage things and rehearse set movements: so the spontaneous, intuitive body language that just ‘happens’ naturally during the course of a day is what your listeners are after… and you’ll learn how to deliver it!
Handling questions… No matter what’s thrown at you, you’ll now be able to respond with something that’s interesting and relevant – even if you don’t know the specific answer! The impression you’ll leave is that you’ve been informative and helpful.
Communicate with confidence in meetings… Now that you recognise you are a person of substance, you’ll no longer remain silent when you ought to speak… you’ll start contributing and getting recognition for your own efforts and ideas!
Impromptu speaking… With the help of my magic 3-step thinking-on-your-feet formulas, you’ll soon be recognised as someone who can speak off the cuff in pressure situations by saying interesting, relevant things… It’s what I call ‘prepared’ spontaneity. Think what this would mean to you?
Planning talks for work, weddings, social occasions and much more… Being able to generate and arrange your ideas in a logical way, your audiences will know they’re in the company of someone who knows where they’re headed… They’ll sense this because it’s true… You’ll have your destination clearly in your mind with the interesting stops along the way - and know precisely how to take them there!
Here’s what I won’t promise you: I won’t promise that this course will transform you into a world-renowned public speaker or some motivational guru making squillions of dollars. Here’s what I will promise you: This course will open your mind to you standing before groups in any situation and speaking confidently in an interesting way so people respect who you are and what you are saying. This I will promise you. And isn’t this what you really want?
My faith in this panic-free speaking system is unshakable. If you’re not absolutely delighted with the outcome of “Being the Confident Speaker You Want to Be” after 60 days from the date of purchase, I’ll refund 100% of your purchase price no questions asked. Now I can’t be fairer than that. I make this unconditional guarantee based on the hundreds of people who now speak with confidence as a direct result of implementing the ideas and inspirations embodied in this systematic program. And I’m absolutely certain they’ll do the same for you. But … the entire program is yours to keep no matter what, as a “thank you” gift from me!
All encompassing self-paced e-course, gifts you a freedom of expression few people get to experience by obeying none of those outdated public speaking ‘rules!’… And ‘getting things wrong’ is one fear you could do without!
This comprehensive self-paced e-learning program is based entirely on the myriad of questions that keep cropping up over the decades I’ve been helping people rid themselves of their public speaking fears. Questions like: “What about my nerves?”, “What do I say?”, “What about my hands?”, “What if I make a fool of myself?”, “What if I go red?” and “What if I go blank?” All of these questions have been answered and each replaced with an easy-to-use strategy in this mind-opening program. Because this program is in the written word, you have time to read, mull over, fill in the workbook, and reflect on how you will apply each practical idea to your world. But most of all, by obeying none of the hard-and-fast public speaking ‘rules’ you’ll be free to stand tall, look your listeners in the eye, and confidently speak as the imperfect human being you are so people respect who you are and what you are saying. This is what makes this exciting public speaking course so refreshingly different.
