You have an important communication opportunity coming up – a talk, a pitch, a presentation… Here is the sure-fire way to be a “natural communicator” and be seen as an expert.

Steve Jobs practiced an hour for every minute of his talks. So, START EARLY! This dynamic has become abundantly clear to me as I have supported speakers for more than 35 TEDx events.

When you START EARLY and commit to having the talk finalized as quickly as possible you can practice more often, live with the final talk longer and you will “absorb it into your bones.”

That makes you much more comfortable and confident on stage, much more relaxed and present, and much more effective. Your audience will see you as an expert, period.

So, control how you are perceived on-stage and in your communications. You’ll be really glad you did. My video refers!

I hope you’re winding up a successful 2022. Here’s to you and yours!

As always, if you have questions for me just hit reply and let me know!
