YOU'RE A ROCK STAR!
Congratulations! You're in an awesome position, and you're nailing your delivery every time!
The results speak for themselves, with rousing applause at the end that you just can’t wait to do it again.
You’re so in tune with your audience that you can get them to participate with you full-out, not unlike a Jedi Master using force to influence the behavior and actions of others.
Tell me if this sounds familiar...
And what about your audience? How are they reacting?
So what else can you do to get your audience to be avid fans so they’ll keep coming back for more?
Well, in the words of the Master Yoda:
Always pass on what you have learned.

The good news is, the Force is with you.
You got your stuff down pat. You’ve already got a solid foundation of your presentation skills. Now you just need some fine tuning to master your skills to take you to the next level of badassery, like Master Yoda using the Force to get Luke Skywalker’s X-wing out of the swamp in Dagobah!
YOU are a subject-matter expert! You’re sharing your knowledge to be of service to your audience.
Now you can go deeper and finesse your technique so that you can inspire action, and develop a following for your efforts!
Then you’ll feel like you’ve made a long-lasting impact.
Want to find out how you can maintain your Rock Star status?
You already have some mad skills, but now it’s a matter of maintaining that high level of delivery each time you present.
The key is to connect with your audience at a deeper level so that what you say resonates with them, and they want to hear more from you.
So here’s your own success formula, your special sauce, your JAM
You have a simple 3-step strategy to give your delivery a big boost.
Take your audience on a journey with you as you present. Show them the final destination and how you are going to get them there. This will invite them into your narrative so they can feel a part of the process. Don’t stop believing that you can do it!
Get your audience to take some form of action during your presentation so they can actively participate. By getting them to physically do something (like raising their hands, writing in the chatbox) you are inviting them to interact with you. Once you have this rapport going back and forth, they will be more invested in what you have to say.
Make your message memorable. Give them takeaways that are easy to remember and relatable. People don’t remember boring things, but they do remember things that are enjoyable and fun! So whether it’s an acronym, a story, or a catch-phrase, make it easy to say, and easy to remember.
You have taken your first step into a larger world.

Now imagine getting your
You are electric when you’re presenting!
The audience can’t enough of you. They’re leaning in to learn more.
There is laughter, energy and enthusiasm radiating from the crowd.
You have them on their feet cheering for you at the end.
Even though you’re done, you’re still getting people coming up to you asking more questions.
You feel like a Jedi Master Presenter, ready to take on any stage and create an unforgettable experience for your audience that will convert them into fans of your work!
Before we go any further, let me introduce myself.
I’m the bestselling author of the book How to NOT Suck at Presentations: Transform Your Presentation Skills from Boring to Badass.
I’m also a big Star Wars aficionado, and dressed up as Princess Leia in the golden bikini to my law school ball!
Before I wrote the book, I was definitely a Death-by-PowerPointer. I didn’t even realize I was bumping off my audience with all the bullet points I had on my slides.
This is the way it was done. I didn’t question it, just followed along what I saw others were doing.
You see, I’ve been working in higher education for over 15 years, training adult learners and presenting at conferences as part of my job.
And we are the best at boring presentations. Ever sat through an academic research presentation? Snooze-fest…even I wanted to be rescued from those!
And then it dawned on me that my presentations could be having the same effect on my audience. Yikes!
So I changed the way I presented so my audience wouldn’t suffer through any more painful and forgettable presentations.
I developed a process to simplify the delivery of my message, and most importantly, connect with the audience.
After fine-tuning my process, I could see the audience leaning in, laughing along, and asking tons of questions during the Q&A.
Many even came up to me to tell me how much they enjoyed my presentation, and how they could apply what they just learned on the job.
I felt like complete badass - like the moment Queen Amidala gave her impassioned speech and convinced the senate to vote down a bill that would lead the Republic deeper into the Clone Wars.
I want you to have that same feeling of badassery, and come away like you made a lasting impression on your audience.
I’m so stoked to share all my strategies with you and can’t wait to see your presenting skills shoot through the stratosphere!
