Make yourself heard.
Faced with a dizzying array of platforms, from Adobe Connect to Zoom, the simple act of communicating has become increasingly complex-even daunting. How can you share your knowledge and be heard in a world that never stops talking?
In Impact, keynote speaker and communication coach Nick Kindler shares the tried and tested methods he's used to transform subject-matter experts into dynamic, impactful speakers. Informed by his years with TED Talks and Singularity University, Kindler guides you through the steps to creating an unforgettable presentation, from concept to performance.
Through case studies, exercises, and action items, you'll learn how to create clarity, understanding, and engagement by simplifying and honing your topic, developing a powerful presentation framework, and mastering the science of storytelling. You'll move through the essentials of creating a purpose statement, building a story structure, and using compelling language that captures and engages your audience. Finally, you'll learn to deliver your knowledge in a way that commands attention-from memorization and rehearsal methods to vocal techniques and body language. And you'll learn how to position your lighting, background, and microphone for a flawless on-screen performance.
Whether you're a student, someone just starting their career, or someone who has been working for years, your ability to authentically communicate and connect with others is a differentiator that will shape your success. You will begin to engage others in a way you never imagined before, and share your gifts of knowledge and ideas with the world.
