The Complete Public Speaking Certification Program (Part 3): Audience Management
Attention: Public Speakers Finally, You’ll Have a Proven, Step-By-Step Hands-On Plan To TRIPLE Your Audience. 10,000 speakers around the globe use this rock-solid formula to spread their ideas and triple their audience. Ordinary presenters just don’t get it…. Recently I attended a presentation and watched two audience members walk out… “It wasn’t anything special…lost me early on,” said the 1st. The 2nd said: “It was boring…didn’t have all the answers.” Once you lose your audience, it’s nearly impossible to get them back. None of us can stand boring presentations with little excitement… … or presenters that talk too fast, are monotone and use lots of ums and filler words. We hate bad subject material that’s too easy and presenters that talk down to us. We all want to connect to the people in the room… …To touch audiences more emotionally and give them good advice. But, if you’re boring and give boring presentations, then they don’t care about what you’re presenting. You’re not looked at as a SME (subject matter expert). It’s not uncommon to look out and 5 or 10 minutes in, see folks starting to drift away and to watch their attention spans wither. Even though you know getting them involved and captivated is absolutely going to help you, it may be hit or miss for you right now. You may have a fear of screwing up… …with bigger audiences, smaller audiences or even 1-on-1 conversations. You may have complicated content or you don’t know where to start…. …many of the best speakers often have to re-engineer their presentations because the content they have to deliver changes fast… …it can be challenging when contemplating writing (or re-writing) your script, and handling a presentation with 50 slides when it could have been 3. You may get nervous beforehand… …even if it’s nothing seeded that keeps you up at night, you still get nervous before a lot of presentations. Even if you’re not nervous inside, you may worry about SHOWING nervousness… You may just want to be more comfortable at public speaking. That’s because PRESENTATION COUNTS… Thought leaders not only know their stuff, but can REALLY PRESENT it well… … just watch a cooking show…some say it even makes the food taste better. When you can make a good impression quickly and CONTINUE to come across well to your audience. You can do something special… …you can touch emotions and go BIG. A Few Questions BEFORE You Present: Do you know how to guarantee you’re telling your audience exactly what they want to know? Have you identified your presentation personality style, and do you know how to use it to entertain your audience by being yourself?

Are You A “Doer”…or Just a “Talker?” (or…Why You Might Want To Take this Course) Let’s face it: Presentation Experts are a dime a dozen. So how do you separate those who “walk the talk” from the ones who merely… …talk? And at Rule the Room, it was our problem, too. You see, we don’t just teach presentation best practices, we actually DO PRESENTATIONS for businesses that we ACTUALLY OWN, CONSULT, or WORK FOR. Sure, over the last 10 years, we’ve observed and analyzed over 10,000 speakers (including the top 100 TED talks of all time). But, we’ve also personally given over 10,000 talks of our own to over 1,000,000 people. We aren’t researchers. We aren’t journalists. We’re business owners training employees (and training influencers to train employees) to achieve their full potential at work, convert belief into practice, and make retaining our employees a priority. In other words: WE ACTUALLY DO THIS STUFF… …so we know how hard it is to find truly skilled presenters who know what they’re talking about. We call it “Ruling the Room”, and here it is… Your Expertise + Our Rule the Room Method = IMPACT. THAT makes you an INFLUENCER… And that’s why we created the “Presentation Bootcamp” course. We built this course to train our own presenters, but in the spirit of “open sourcing” our business (which is what Rule the Room is all about) we’re now making this certification and training available to the world. In short, we’re making it available to YOU… What Is the Public Speaking and Presentation Bootcamp Workshop?
