Presentations That Transform: How to Communicate with your Audience that Creates Repeat Business

The greater the conversation we have with our audience the greater the transformation that will happen within their careers, businesses, and lives.

Every audience arrives to our presentations physically long before they arrive mentally and emotionally. Though, they remain as an audience member physically they are not always there for the entire time mentally or emotionally.

Once we connect with them, then we can begin to collaborate with them to create better careers, businesses, and lives. This is accomplished through understanding our audiences and then speaking with them through that understanding.

Presentations that Transform will:

- give you insight into the seven forces that drive everyone within our audiences and clients.

- refresh your understanding of the three communication modalities of every person we serve. Communication is less about what we say and more about what our clients and audiences see, hear, and feel.

- give you new insight to the three forces that blow us off course, our audiences, and clients, while in pursuit of their success in their careers, business, and lives.

- give you the three attitudes that creates the probability of greater success in all our endeavors.

- give you the four secret principles of communication that enables to have an ongoing conversation with our clients and audience that creates transformational presentations.

About Matt:

Through almost 40 years of public speaking, to both large and small audiences, Matt has learned the ten characteristics of every audience, that when understood and deployed create repeat engagements. You will be enthusiastically engaged with Matt’s ever-present authentic ability to bring emotion and humor together as he shares his successes and failures. His presentation skills
will encourage and give direction that will propel you to move forward in your life and career.

*Goals and Challenges - How can we help you? We will draw names for the opportunity to share your challenges in the 5-minute spotlight.

    As always, what a wonderful event! Matt was great. But most of all I'll remember this meeting as the one where Stephanie passed on the baton. Stephanie ... you will be missed and remembered!

    I can't thank everyone enough for the warm welcome last night. I look forward to carrying on the magic that Stephanie created; bit shoes to fill indeed (size 10 1/2, really?) And I know I walked away from Matt's presentation with some very specific adjustments I'll be making to my speeches. Thanks Matt!

    As a newbie, I hadn't known anyone long, especially Stephanie, but in the short time, I've come to respect and admire her. I really value everyone and thought Matt's presentation was awesome! Valuable information I haven't heard anywhere else.

    I can't thank you all enough for a wonderful final meeting as the leader of this group. My heart is FULL with all the love and support I felt last night. It is bittersweet to bid farewell, but I will be back to visit and look forward to staying connected in the community. Big hugs to all of you!

    I thought the speaker had some good techniques to share, but - of course- we were all there to say farewell to our pal Stephanie.

    Wow, with the Stephanie "passing the baton" to Stacey Powell, this is going to be a historical meeting. Let's come to this meeting to show our support for both Stephanie and Stacey!

  • Diane M.

    Wishing all the best to Stephanie with deep appreciation for all she has done, and a warm welcome to Stacey. Looking forward to Matt's insights as well.

  • Suzanne C.

    As a safety expert I can attest to the idea that Communication is less about what we say and more about what our clients and audiences see, hear, and feel. People will never care about how much you know until they know how much you care. I am anxious to hear Matt share his insights!
