The Winning Edge: Advanced Tactics for Speech Champions

Our comprehensive training program is designed to equip speech competitors with the advanced techniques and strategies needed to excel in competitions, ensuring they not only perform with confidence but also leave a lasting impression on their audience and judges.

Are you…

    • Struggling to consistently stand out in a field of talented speakers during competitions?
    • Eager to refine your delivery and content to captivate judges and audiences alike?
    • Ready to set your speeches apart by enhancing your storytelling and emotional engagement?

      If you answered YES, we’re here to transform your presentation skills and competitive strategy.

      Our collaboration begins with an in-depth evaluation to pinpoint your current speaking abilities, identify areas for improvement, and understand your competition goals.

      Drawing on this information, we’ll devise a tailored training plan focused on refining your speech delivery, content, and overall performance. This plan is crafted with your specific competitive context in mind, aiming to maximize your strengths and address any weaknesses.

      Each coaching session is carefully designed to build your confidence, refine your technique, and enhance your ability to connect with judges and audiences, setting you apart from your competitors.

      Adopting a flexible approach to coaching, we ensure that our program fits into your preparation schedule, allowing you to benefit from expert guidance without disrupting your competition timeline.

       Key Training Areas Tailored for Speech Competitors:


          • Crafting Compelling Narratives: Learn to construct speeches that command an audience’s attention from start to finish. You will learn all of the building blocks necessary to consistently create presentations that leave listeners and judges spellbound.
          • Effective Storytelling: A speaker who can reliably connect with audiences or communicate key ideas through well-told stories has an incredible advantage over their competition. Too often, however, speakers lack the nuance or the training to be able to properly choose, refine, or deliver their stories. We spend the time to teach you everything you’ll need to know to rise above these common challenges, and to deliver stories that will make your presentation unforgettable.
          • Emotional Resonance: We dive deep into techniques for embedding emotional triggers within your speech, helping you to master the art of evoking powerful feelings and memories that resonate with your audience.

      My Six Core Principles:


      1. 1)  Your opening 30 seconds needs to grab my attention and engage me emotionally.  Make me FEEL something, whether it’s suspense, laughter, anxiety, anger, or curiosity.


        • 2)  A huge part of resonating with an audience is authenticity, and the key to authenticity is congruency.  Your body language, vocals and content should always be in alignment, if you want to avoid looking like you’re “performing” instead of “connecting.”


          • 3)  Storytelling is key.  A single well-told story is more memorable and more persuasive than any fact, figure, or PowerPoint slide.


            • 4)  A great speech isn’t just a great essay spoken out loud.  Some of the sentence structures and rhetorical techniques that are most effective in public speaking go against nearly every lesson your English teacher has ever taught you.


              • 5)  Have a clear through-line.  Having a metaphor or a story that weaves throughout your presentation can be an incredibly powerful way to make it feel more focused and easy to follow.


                • 6)  Record yourself repeatedly when you practice.  It can feel awkward to watch yourself on camera for many of us, but it’s absolutely the fastest way to review, analyze, and improve your performance.
