It is an awesome responsibility and privilege to address an audience as a speaker. If you are a coach or business professional who wants to enroll clients from the platform, you need to connect and engage with an audience quickly and show them the benefits of working with you.

  1. Tip

    The purpose of your speech is to get results; to help people make changes and think or act differently.

  2. Tip

    Show your audience that coaching is a process. It is different from consulting.

  3. Tip

    Determine what kind of coaching the client wants and needs.

  4. Tip

    People learn in three ways: Visual (what they can see), Auditory (what they can hear), and Kinesthetic (what they can touch). Try to include all three ways in your speech.

  5. Tip

    People have short attention spans. Review your main points before you end your speech.

  6. Tip

    Be conversational by engaging the audience. Don't lecture the audience.

  7. Tip

    Use humor. This keeps the audience interested and they learn better.

  8. Tip

    Use strong openings. Examples: a story, a significant statement, a quotation, a challenging question.

  9. Tip

    Use Strong Closings. Examples: Summary, Review the main points, make a statement, tell an anecdote, call for action.

  10. Tip

    Use a written evaluation form. For example, ask them what they like best about your program; what they like least; and if they were you how would they improve your program. Be sure to ask for referrals to other groups who would benefit from your information.
