Do you feel like you have too much content in your presentations? Too many good things you can share with your audiences and you’re not sure how to select what to include?

Most of us feel this way – and it’s our job as speakers to identify the most essential elements and convey them in a way the audience can understand and apply.

One way to do this is to thread a story throughout your talk, where the people (could be you, a client, or someone else) in the story, the situation they’re in, the challenges they face, and how they overcome them becomes the lessons the audience learns.

In this on-air coaching call, my guest Amber Hawley and I do exactly this as we go through her signature talk.

We identify a story Amber can use and then play with the timeline to keep it interesting.

Amber recently graduated from our Master Your Speaking program.

Our next Master Your Speaking program starts in mid-January and enrollment is open right now.

You get to work one-on-one with us to create your signature talk PLUS you get 3 months of group coaching to learn how to position, promote, and market yourself to get better speaking engagements, including paid ones, and even your dream one.
