It’s time to BE Visible.
To BE Magnetic.
To BE recognised.
To become a powerful and compelling speaker you must understand how to craft stories told on purpose, deep dive and build your understanding of the power in language. You must use what you already know to be true to turn you into an authentic, relatable and magnetic speaker.
Speaker training has become about the sale, or the pitch. I have personally reached the stage where somewhere between 3 and 5 minutes in, I can tell if the person presenting has been trained to speak as a sales strategy in itself – instead of to deliver immense value – and I switch off.
Which is the LAST thing you want as a speaker.
Because when you are speaking to sell, two things happen. You are following a formula which carefully works out what you will share and what you will leave out – because it’s all about moving your audience to the sale instead of delivering value. Most disturbingly when your speaking strategy is a well constructed sales pitch, and only a sales pitch, you become so focussed on moving people to where you need them to be, that you don’t show up completely – and that means I can’t hear you. The real you.
A Message from Jacqueline
I love speaking, when I choose the stage, the purpose, and the gifts I get to leave with the audience.
More than that, I love what has been created in the SpeakableYOU room – the evolution of years of trialling, testing, tweaking and finally standing in a room of clever people, most of whom own their own business, and seeing it all come together.
Because our fear of speaking is never about speaking. There is a lot of laughter in the room when I ask people to put their hands up if they were ever a toddler, and whilst it sounds ridiculous it is a very simple and clear point.
If you were EVER a toddler, who has first learnt to talk, you never shut up! From babble, to soft words, to stringing whole sentences together and not able to get your words out fast enough when you were excited, the thought of NOT speaking simply didn’t enter your mind.
Your fear of speaking is not about speaking, but about an experience burned into your mind; a simple sentence from someone who thought they were coming from love; an assessment from a teacher that hurt you at a soul level; an environment where you were rewarded for being invisible; fear around how valuable your knowledge actually is.
The process of unpacking what you already know to be true is perhaps the most powerful; or maybe it is the focus on how to shift our own personal story and step into a more confident version of ourselves; or the ability to work out what gift you can leave your audience, that takes the focus from me to you.
My instinct that speaker training is about everything but the speaking is true. The transformation I am privileged to watch unfold in front of me in every SpeakableYOU room in Brisbane shows, that Speaker Driven Transformation may be one of the most powerful tools that we have within reach to create the business, the life and the future we crave.
