  1. Nine Hacks Guaranteed to make your next SPEECH WORLD CLASS

  2. Congratulations! You’ve been asked to speak on the main stage.

  3. Now fear sets in.

  4. “What if no one cares what I have to say?”

  5. “What if I bomb?”

  6. “But I’m not funny!”

  7. “Aaaaarg!”

  8. Here’s the good news…

  9. To deliver a world class speech, you don’t have to be famous, brilliant (or even funny).

  10. But you do have to be good.

  11. Here are 9 ways to make your next speech world class.

  12. #1 Nail the Timing

  13. Avoid the mistake of starting too slow and ending too fast.

  14. Use this timing formula: 35% for the opening - story (get their attention, build rapport), - problem (what are you here to solve?), - promise (what can they expect?)

  15. Use this timing formula: 50% for content - deliver 3-5 solutions with a story for each one.

  16. Use this timing formula: 15% for the close - summary, call-to-action, closing story

  17. #2 Start with a Story

  18. Skip the I’m-so-glad-to-be-here self-serving babble and jump right into a story.

  19. A well-told story will always knock the socks off a poorly told story about, say winning an Olympic medal.

  20. #3 Use Fewer Slides

  21. Your slides are NOT the message - they should ADD to your message (not make it worse)

  22. My formula is 2/4/8: •no more than 1 slide every 2 minutes •no more than 4 bullets per slide •no more than 8 words per bullet* *just like this slide

  23. #4 Do the Boogie

  24. Every 10-12 minutes get your audience moving.

  25. They will learn more, remember more (and recommend you more)

  26. #5 Be Funny

  27. Question: “Do you have to be funny in your speech?”

  28. Question: “Do you have to be funny in your speech?” Answer: “Only if you want to get invited back.”

  29. Instead of trying to be funny, watch for funny or surprising moments (kids, dog, neighbours, or shopping) in everyday life.

  32. #6 Get Social Proof

  33. Here’s a secret to getting booked to speak more: Get audience feedback during your speech.

  34. About halfway, I always ask: “Are you enjoying this and is it valuable?”

  35. The applause I get is called Social Proof (now they ALL agree this is world class)

  36. #7 Connect with the Audience

  37. People learn from people they connect with.

  38. This is true in management, sales, love and your next presentation.

  39. 4 ways to connect with your audience: • • • • wear clothes similar but slightly better than your audience, use words they understand (don’t try to impress), stay on stage until they’re warmed up to you, share some faults (it makes you human).

  40. #8 Deliver less Content, Better

  41. Avoid doing a ‘brain dump’ on your audience—you’ll look like an amateur and they’ll forget it.

  42. Instead, deliver less content, better: • • • • remove content that doesn’t reinforce your main points, anchor every lesson to a story, repeat the best parts, summarize

  43. #9 End with a Bang

  44. If you want to be memorable, close It simple, if you want to be memorable, close with an emotional story. with an emotional story.

  45. 3 types of closing story (instead of: Oprah, Rosa Park, Mother Teresa, or Michael Jordan, use your own): 1. how these lessons changed your life, 2. how these lessons changed someone else’s life, 3. the ending to the story you opened with.
