The Program:

How do the skills of master performers translate to speakers? What do Jay Leno, Ellen DeGeneres, and Jerry Seinfeld do in their performances that you can apply to your presentations? Bill, a 29-time Emmy Award winner, applies the lessons he learned from the world of television to speaking.

Virtually all of the speakers who are making serious money in the speaking business have one thing in common: they are amazing on the platform! Everything else springs from that: referrals, spin-offs, product sales — everything. If you want to make it — really make it — as a speaker, you have to be as good as, or better than, the best. Bill shares the secrets he’s learned from the people who have really made it in comedy and television, and translate those secrets directly to the world of speaking.

You’ll learn:

  • How to structure your presentation for maximum engagement
  • How to utilize predictable unpredictability to keep your audiences awake and interested
  • A simple rule to help you plan your openings and closings
  • How to use the secrets of comedy writers to make your speeches and stories come alive
  • How to rehearse properly (most speakers don’t!) to set you apart from the competition
