Regarded by many as one of the best presenters who ever lived, Steve Jobs was a master of the stage. His keynote addresses energized audiences and were so effective, Apple hardly had to spend any money on advertising, relying more on the favorable press it received due in no small part to the magic Jobs performed at the launches of key products and services.
This program is different than any other presentation skills training not only because of the Steve Jobs element, but because it addresses the number one issue for all presenters right at the beginning. “Anxiety".
Being anxious about speaking leads to many costly outcomes. Beyond the negatives associated with apprehension, such as embarrassment and inability to focus, speaking anxiety not only causes you to present poorer speeches, but you're also likely to write poorer speeches too. Second, people who appear nervous are often judged as being deceptive or unprepared because the many behavioral cues associated with nervousness—voiding eye contact, stumbling over words, etc. are also linked to lying or not being ready. Third, being nervous reduces your ability to think clearly, to make effective decisions, and to respond to your audience's reactions.
By combining an analysis of Jobs' many presentations, his personal experience of training and personal coaching of various entrepreneurs and CEOs in their public speaking skills, this training will help you make your next presentation INSANELY great.
This program will benefit executives, managers and leaders who have some prior public speaking and presentation skills training or experience. It is particularly useful for executives who speak in front of groups, sales people and anyone who meets the press.
The workshop is designed to deliver maximum result through experiential learning, videos, and individual, paired and team presentation work, fun and insightful learning activities, self-reflection and translation into actual action plan that can be applied immediately at work.
