16 Ways You Can Use Your Signature Talk: Podcast Ep. 116


Subscribe to the podcast!

When we think of a signature talk, we naturally think of standing in front of a group of people delivering our talk.

Did you know that there are many more ways – 16 at least! – that you can use your signature talk?

These include webinars, videos, podcast interviews, website copy, sales pitches, book outlines, and more.

Why can you use it in all these ways?

The work of creating your signature talk becomes the foundation on which everything else stands.

A signature talk is what you want to be known for, your area of expertise, and the insights you want to share.

Your talk reflects your beliefs and values, what you do or believe that’s different or that others aren’t seeing, as well as the way you work, your methodology, process, approach.

Not only do you have your presentation ready to go, but in the process you’ve identified and articulated your core message. You now have Clarity + Conviction + Confidence in your message.

If you want expert help to create your signature talk that you’ll be able to use for multiple purposes, check out our coaching packages at https://www.speakingyourbrand.com/coaching.

The framework I’ve developed that we use when we work with you takes classic 3-act story structure and the hero’s journey and infuses it with savvy marketing and sales techniques, so your signature talk is more than a presentation – it’s your core message: who you are, who you help, what they need, how you help them, and why it matters – both to you and to your audience/potential clients.

Our signature talks don’t live in a vacuum. We’re out there speaking and learning, but then who are we sharing those questions and lessons with?

How are we making sure that we’re continuously improving so that we can reach those bigger stages, increase our speaker fees, and having a bigger impact on our audiences?

We need feedback, accountability, guidance, and some pushing outside of our comfort zones, which is what you’ll get in our new “Master Your Speaking” Online Group Program.

This will be a combination of group coaching + mastermind, taking place on Zoom video and in a private online community, so you can join us no matter where you live.

By the end of the program experience, you’ll have the speaking elements in place that will fuel the growth of your business and lead you to bigger opportunities.

I’m still working out all the details, but the program will start in May 2019.
