Speak Like a Pro For Profit

Introduction

Dear Speakers, Coaches, Authors and Business Professionals,

I wrote this book because I know you have these challenges:

* How do I prepare a speech that people need to hear?

* What have I earned the right to speak about?

* What makes me unique?

* How do I personalize my stories to connect with my audience?

* Can I take a risk by being truly authentic?

* What steps do I need to take to become a highly paid speaker?

I am going to answer these questions, and more. You will benefit from my twenty plus years in working with over 1,500 professional speakers. This fast, easy, problem-solving guide offers proven tips that will help you speak like a pro. . .in a short time!

"You were born an original. Don't die a copy."

Wishing you continued success,

Coach Sandra Schrift

Fear of public speaking is #1. Death is #4. So most people would rather get a root canal and pay their taxes than speak in front of an audience.

Ask yourself, "Wouldn't it be great..."

* to be able to stand in front of an audience of hundreds of people and hold them in complete captivation?

* to feel confident and assured the day you're scheduled to speak before your company's executives, an association, a corporate meeting, or a local civic group?

* to go into a presentation confident that the attendees are going to love you, be surrounded by their applause, and overhear comments afterwards, such as, "He was excellent," or, "She made a real connection with her audience"?

* to be paid for what you love to do?

This book contains tips and techniques to become a polished presenter who speaks effectively to anyone, anywhere, with confidence.

You will learn how to:

* Develop comfort and confidence

* Write and deliver a winning presentation

* Connect with your audience

* Persuade people to act on what you say

* Be a highly paid speaker
