For an audience, experiencing a stirring rendition is both exhilarating and uplifting. Because a great speech appears so effortless, it is too easy to assume that delivery is a simple matter.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Those who have mastered the art of successful speaking know very well that it is rarely an overnight phenomenon.
Great speeches may be written in just a few days – but the delivery is what can make them great. That ability takes years of experience to hone. The stark reality is that delivering speeches is fraught with pitfalls almost guaranteed to unhinge the novice. This, in a nutshell, is why Alan Stevens and Paul du Toit wrote The Exceptional Speaker.
Having listened to hundreds of speakers and studied many of the world’s great speeches, Alan and Paul, themselves both professional speakers, have identified exactly what it takes to speak with conviction, clarity and pizzazz. Their book is a resource to learn how plan, structure and deliver a memorable message.
Nothing worth achieving happens without effort and careful thought. Public speaking requires in addition study, application, practice and plenty of experience. But it’s a rewarding ride.
This webinar will tell you the secrets that professional speakers use to Wow their audiences. You will hear the key messages from the book, and how you, too, can become an exceptional speaker.
