Coaching Tips for Powerful Presentations
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.
Tip #1 The purpose of your speech is to get results; to help people make changes and think or act differently.
Tip #2 Show your audience that coaching is a process. It is different from consulting.
Tip #3 Determine what kind of coaching the client wants and needs.
Tip #4 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.
Tip #5 People have short attention spans. Review your main points before you end your speech.
Tip #6 Be conversational by engaging the audience. Don't lecture the audience.
Tip #7 Use humor. This keeps the audience interested and they learn better.
Tip #8 Use strong openings. Examples: a story, a significant statement, a quotation, a challenging question.
Tip #9 Use Strong Closings. Examples: Summary, Review the main points, make a statement, tell an anecdote, call for action.
Tip #10 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.
Double, even triple your present clients. Learn speaking and writing tips that include: how to persuade your audiences to buy, how to write a talk, an e-book, mini-sales letters or short articles, and a driven audience talk or book. 90 minute marathon uses question and answer format.
