Getting our voices heard can be a nerve-wracking and overwhelming task – particularly in a world where everyone seems to have something to say. The ability to present our ideas with confidence is now a coveted skill. Yet on stage, we become this other person: less funny, less engaging, less human.
Mark Shayler draws on his own experience – from nervous speaker to charismatic compere – to guide you through the task of public speaking. He takes a deeper look at what’s holding you back, and will help you to:
- Find your voice and the confidence to share it
- Learn how to tell stories, not just share data
- Stand and move around the stage comfortably
- Leave the audience informed, entertained and uplifted
Giving a brilliant talk is not about following a method. It's not about rules. It's about understanding what you want the audience to think, feel and do afterwards. Ultimately, it's about being more you.
Mark Shayler is one of Britain's most charismatic keynote speakers. He has made a reputation by thinking on his feet and engaging audiences all over the globe.
