New Shift Speaker Training Blog Coming Soon!

Joanna Martin- Effective Presentation Trainer


I am uber-excited. Apparently that is Gen Y talk for very very very excited. I’m actually just about jumping out of my skin at the moment as I can’t wait to tell you about something which is going to be so much fun for you and me, and every-one who gets their hands on it!  Eeek!

You see, Greg, Tamara, Vanessa, Jo and I have just spent a full day planning out something that is going to rock the public speaking world. To take boring presentations to effective presentations in a heartbeat!

I’m not sure whether you know this, but I’m working towards a new book and a TV show at the moment, and as part of that big picture we are re-branding everything from the “Secrets of Selling From Stage” (that you may be familiar with) to the “Shift Speaker Training” brand- (which you may not).

So get ready for a transformational journey over the next 3 weeks.  Heehee!

A Blog Dedicated to Effective Presentations and Speaker Training

In the next 3 weeks I am turning the focus on speaker training specifically.  And to do that I am launching a sister blog to this one.  This will become all about “Lifestyle Design- Business and Life on Purpose”  while all of the fabulous resources about how to make money from speaking will be found over on http://www.ShiftSpeakerTraining.com/blog.

Over the next 3 weeks (starting Tuesday)  I’m going to be releasing bucket loads of previously unseen content and speaker training and I’m giving it all away for nicks.  (That’s street talk for nothing! ) Yup-  I’m on a mission to give you some of my best resources and training for nothing!

Free Public Speaking Training

We’re going to be launching the new dedicated speaker training blog in a little under a week.  There’s going to be so much happening- so much to learn, and the opportunity to kick your business into the stratosphere while we go! Especially if you are into making money form your speaking, delivering outstandingly effective presentations and rocking the worlds with your message.

Is that good enough reason to be excited?!

I’ll update you again nest week so you’re really on top of it all. So get ready to tell your friends.  You aren’t going to believe what I’m going to be giving away!  Yeah!  GIVING AWAY!

Warmest regards,

We’re at LAX right now, and I just experienced my first earthquake.  5.0 on the Richter.  I was in the toilet and the water was splashing around all over the place!  Mmm!!

Anyway- back to the point!….

As many of you know- I am a constant and never-ending student. One of my colleagues, Armand Morin, who many of you may know as an Internet Marketing Super-hero, ran his speaker training “Persuasion X” public speaking training in Los Angeles this weekend.

Greg and I made a last minute decision to skip over the Pacific and check it out, and we have had a great couple of days.

I think no matter how much you know about public speaking, or any topic for that matter, there’s always something more you can add to the mix huh?! The highlight of the weekend was an unexpected visit to the event by the lovely Les Brown. Wow! What a gentle, beautiful man. He was truly unbelievable.

The three days at the event have confirmed my belief that when it comes to closing sales from stage, and public speaking in general, that it doesn’t matter what your style is… As long as you:

1. Are confident in your system
2. Hit the 7 key phases of your presentation
3. Practice, practice, practice

…then it doesnt matter if you have word on your powerpoint or images, or dont even use powerpoint. It doesn’t matter if you teach heaps, or load up the entertainment factor. There are rooms for all types- as long as you are memorable FOR SOME REASON!

So keys to take away from this message:
– Know your content
– Have a good system
– Just get you there practice!

Here’sa to your wild success!
