Speak with Greater Poise, Power, and Persuasion

Daniel Webster, one of America’s greatest statesmen and orators, said: “If I were to lose all of my possessions except one, I would keep the power of communication–for by it I would soon regain all of the rest.

You can agree to that statement easily. In your business, professional, and civic life, you have noticed that those who can speak with “poise, power, and persuasion” will be more likely to:
–Get hired from among many applicants
–Earn promotions to upper level management
–Become CEOs

Ken Futch Discusses Professional Speaking

Ken Futch and I discussed professional speaking

Since many of us fear public speaking and shy away from opportunities to face audiences, you probably wonder why anyone would choose professional speaking as a career–and how you make the transition into that business.

Veteran professional speaker Ken Futch joined “The Communication Corner”–my weekly interview program on WBCX-FM, “The Voice of Brenau”–to explain why he left his stellar career at AT&T after eleven years to launch his speaking career. With his entertaining, informational, and often motivational style, Ken covered these and other topics:

–His “signature story”–accidentally shooting himself in the head
–The public event he attended that attracted him to professional speaking
–Using humor effectively
–Organizations a new speaker should affiliate with
–Technology the professional speaker must learn and use
–Strategies for getting your audience involved
–Pluses and minuses of Power Point
–The valuable art of telling stories

You will marvel as Ken recalls hear near-death experience. In fact, this Vietnam combat platoon leader uses all of his life’s lessons to help others find the best opportunities in every situation.
