The Program:

You think you’ve had some challenging audiences — they’ve had too much alcohol, you’re speaking to a third-filled room, you’re the seventh speaker out of seven for the day, they are having to sit through your talk before eating a long-overdue dinner.

But there are worse audiences — and Mark worked with them for decades before transitioning to “nice” audiences. He’s grateful for them, as he learned much more than if he’d only been in front of polite ones. His lessons will help make you a much better speaker — with nice and not-so-nice audiences.

Listen as Mark shares his hard-won wisdom on what you can do to become even more successful in front of any audience. His ideas will help you turn the corner from speaking to an audience to connecting with your audience in a meaningful way, which will result in more bookings.

You will learn:

  • what most speakers forget about their role before, during and after their presentation
  • critical behaviors before you are introduced
  • actions that keep many speakers unconnected with their audiences
  • often-neglected keys to engaging your audience
  • important questions to ask audience members after your talk
  • expanding your repertoire to have more impactful presentations
