01/12/2017 - Lunch & Learn - Mastering the Art of Public Speaking

Mon, 2017-01-02 20:00
Brad Worthley will be presenting "Mastering the Art of Public Speaking."

Public speaking is the greatest fear most people have, even greater than spiders and death itself. 74% of the population has what is called "Glossophobia" which is stage fright or the fear of public speaking. There is also a small part of the population who are comfortable speaking in front of people and they want to learn to do it better (or to make a living as a professional speaker). Brad will unlock the secrets to being a great public speaker and provide you with his 26 years of experience as one of the highest-rated presenters in the world.

Topics include:
  • How to Eliminate Fear
  • Providing Value to Your Audience
  • The Eight Secrets to a Great Speech
  • Why PowerPoint is The Kiss of Death
  • Why You Should Never Break the #1 Rule in Public Speaking
This event is free, but please register. Lunch will be available for purchase from Rodeo City Bar-B-Q.
