Establishing credibility is essential to effective public speaking. Presenters do this by developing, delivering and sustaining the messages through their words and their actions. Authenticity is central to the public speaking process. Speaking in public is the presenter’s opportunity to engage the hearts and minds of the audience.

John helps executives improve their presentation skills, interpersonal communications, leadership presence, and leadership messages. Participants learn to establish presence, stick to the message, handle objections, and plan key messages for key audiences.

John Baldoni teaches presenters a three step process of engagement.

Engage Your Mind

  • Adopt the leader mindset
  • Develop the 30sec. leadership message
  • Create the strong opening
  • Provide the call to action

Engage Your Voice

  • Pace yourself
  • Modulate your delivery
  • Employ the pause

Engage Your Body

  • Make eye contact
  • Put your body into gear
  • Move for emphasis
  • Project for power

The net result is an engaged audience. Once you have their attention and their interest you can connect with them in three ways by:

  • Projecting your leadership POV
  • Telling purposeful stories
  • Giving reasons to believe
