The Persuasive Speaker
August 21 @ 9:45 am - 12:00 pm
Speaker: Joey Asher, President, SpeechWorks
Do you dread having to present information because the topic is inherently dull? Have you ever noticed your audience checking emails rather than listening to you? Do you want to be a persuasive speaker that is able to grab the listeners attention and keep it? “Yes, Yes, Yes! BUT I’m not dynamic or funny.” You don’t have to be a comedian or an actor/actress to be a Persuasive Speaker. You just need to learn how to take your listeners on a journey.
Join fellow struggling presenters in this engaging and interactive workshop that will teach you how to structure information in the form of a story and make the most of the dreaded Q&A. Guided by Joey Asher, President of Speechworks, you’ll have the opportunity to create and practice a presentation. All attendees will receive a copy of Joey’s new book “Riveting Data: How to Make Any Presentation Exciting Using Hollywood Storytelling Techniques.”
- Take even the dullest topic and turn it into a story that your audience will find riveting
- Deliver the message in a style that will make your audience want to pay attention
- Keep any presentation exciting using lots of Q&A
