Public Speaking Trends for 2020: Podcast Ep. 154


Subscribe to the podcast!

What trends are on the horizon that you can capitalize on to get better speaking engagements and to get better results from them?

How can you improve your presentations so the audience raves about you and you get invited to do more (including paid speaking)?

How can you be memorable as a speaker?

In this episode, you’ll learn 3 trends you can apply to your presentation content and delivery that can make the difference between a so-so speaking engagement and one that makes an impact.

After having worked with over 150 clients during the past 4 years to create their presentations, workshops and keynotes, attended and spoken at many conferences and events, and talked to event organizers, I’m keenly attuned to what sets apart good speakers from great ones – those who’ve mastered speaking as a communication medium.

What I mean by trends are not fads or cliches or gimmicks. 

Trends are like currents or waves of energy that move through our society and affect everything from business and the economy to popular culture and media as well as our politics.

As speakers and leaders, our talks have more of an impact if our audiences can see the bigger picture of what’s affecting them and the world around them.

Curious what these 3 big trends are? Listen in!
