Hi everyone!  I just joined this group b/c as I'm reading 48 Days, I know I want to be a trainer/speaker.  I've always wanted to teach since I was a kid, but not in a traditional classroom.  I'm not afraid of speaking in front of people now and I handle some training at my work now:  Diversity, Drug & Alcohol and Sexual Harassment.  I don't want to stay in this arena though.......  I was wondering if some of you could comment on how you developed your training niche.

Kent, THANK YOU!!! I am really jazzed to get to work with Jill on our 21 day program as she is pretty rocking awesome. Fun to not only get to be a part of the first 21 day journey with folks, but also to be creating an evergreen after talk product that will go along nicely with my bundle product sales.

Hey gang, quick note. Jill Davis and I are offering our $147 course (21 Days to Developing Your Inner Core Strength) for only $21 for those that sign up before 2/28. Thought I would post here for 2 reasons. 1. The content is going to be great. 2. Even if the course doesn't interest you, know that some of you would benefit from attending just to view how we do this from a coaching template perspective as coaching can be a nice revenue stream to go with your speaking. Having invested thousands of dollars in the BEST coaches over the years, it has been really helpful to participate in programs and template the things that can work for me.

Comment by David Weiss on Monday

Thank you Kingsley and Maureen. Those were all very helpful. Maureen as to your personal story comment, I was with these folks for five days and other messages contained a lot more of that. To the point of being breathless, I likely was. This came just after about a 10 minute "rant." You see the first part of this message is me dramatically portraying the older brother in the story who is basically wavering between hurt and fury. Of course this part of the video did not come out as the recording stopped in the middle. The pacing back and forth is something I also have been working on. After years of preaching from manuscripts, I am now committing everything to memory and the pacing has been tough to overcome. 

Comment by Kingsley Grant on Monday

Hi David,

I watched some of the video and do agree with what Maureen already said. I also would add that you seemed like you were breathless at times. Maybe more controlled breathing would be another thing to be aware of. Also, making eye contact with a section or group of people at a time, and talk to them, then move on to another section, would be helpful.

Just adding my 2c.

David, if you start a discussion about your video, you'd be able to track the comments. I watched a few minutes of. You have a very strong presence and voice, well suited for preaching. You used some nice vocal variety, and you are comfortable using your arms to gesture. Your speaking speed varies nicely too, for good emphasis where you want it. Two things jump out at me that you may consider: You pace back and forth, moving with no purpose, and it distracts from your words. And, you would grab more attention if you told more personal stories. The prodigal son is a familiar story, but the David Weiss story is not, and you can use it to engage people's hearts faster and deeper. I'm not saying don't use the prodigal son, but hearing more of YOUR story is the secret to engaging the audience.

Comment by David Weiss on February 20, 2015 at 8:18am

Would love some input on my speaking. I combine art and preaching and am also working toward speaking on creativity. This one is based on the parable of the prodigal son. https://amokarts.wordpress.com/2015/02/20/the-older-brother/
