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.
