Who can make the most of Speak Performance: POLARIS?

You know you need to raise your game with your #Speak Performance skills. Your clients have much higher expectations in today’s virtual world.

You are speaking, presenting and delivering for business. Your business. Or your part of the business.

You present to get results. For your audience. For your business. For you.

In the shift from in the room to virtual, you are painfully aware of the cacophony of noise that surrounds you—and  your clients—drowning out your message.

You are desperate to cut through the chaos in your viewer’s environment, your listener’s environment. The babble that distracts  online, outside, or most often in their own head!

It’s simple.  You must  perform powerfully to that camera, confidently engaging your audience, your clients, through that looking glass.

And the last thing you want to be is boring or beige. Blanding in is not an option, but it is your fear.

Why POLARIS is needed today

You plan for what you want to present, want to deliver, teach or sell. Of course you do. Most presenters and trainers do. 

Yet when others focus on what they think is the important content, it is often just information. Predictable, dull and obvious information.

They offer little value, because they don’t focus on  what the audience really needs.

And when they focus on what they know, not delivering what the audience needs, they don’t care about engaging through the webcam. They fail to intrigue, inspire or induce the audience to stay active and take action.

A few of the skills from your in the room presentations still work, but not as well as they used to.

This is unfamiliar terrain for most business experts and presenters and a new skillset, and more importantly, a new mindset is needed.

It is a new kind of stage. A stage with the potential for local, national and international impact.

Your presentations—from networking to board meetings, phone calls to zoom chats, webinars to podcasts, from across a desk to the largest of auditoriums, even a 30-second video through to a year-long training course—are performances. Are you Speak Performing or Weak Performing?

Perform at your best. Deliver without being cancelled, trolled or switched off. 

Be the Speak Performer. Not a weak performer.

What do you focus on in POLARIS?

This transmedia experience equips you to plan, prepare and present incredible value to your audience, live online, in recorded video and audio, even social media snippets.

Develop the skills that let you target every performance on specific objectives for your audience. Clear objectives that offer incredible value. Objectives that can be measured in changed feelings, actions, results and feedback.

Becoming a Speak Performer lets you make the benefits very clear from the beginning, you engage your audience throughout and compel them to take action on your insights, they remember your message long afterwards and you leave them wanting more because you delivered on your promise.

How does the POLARIS training experience work?

Speak Performing is not Am Dram. Or being something you’re not in front of an audience, camera or microphone. 

When you are Speak Performing you are: 

  • tapping into your deepest value for your audience
  • connecting to the inner challenges of your audience in honest, respectful and liberating ways
  • communicating flexibly for each and every audience
  • empowering your audience with ideas and tools that effectively change how they think, feel and act—changes that get maximum results

You are not alone on this journey into your Speak Performance.

In a powerful group of fellow presenters you’ll enjoy encouragement, support and even a push ahead from your peers in regular sessions. You’ll learn with one another, share your insight and ideas with one another, and celebrate your progress together.

I will check in with you, at the beginning, middle and end of the programme ensuring you make the most of the experience.

Throughout, you’ll be guided through a unique programme combining 1-1 work, group sessions and an extensive digital resources library.

Everything comes together in many practical exercises so you see your progress throughout.

Along the way you’ll find your own way to connect to your core audience, share your central message and convert your audience into enthusiastic fans who love the results you get them.

The online world is full of weak performances: wasting people’s time, energy and hope.

It is time to rescue those trapped in dull, useless talks and online meetings. 

It is time for you to become the Speak Performer.
