Speaker Performance Lab
Special Bonus Session before the Summer Break
June 15, 2020

Don’t miss this great opportunity!

This year we’ve worked on and had excellent presentations on: 

  • Authentic Expression, 
  • Breathing and Vocal Quality, 
  • Conveying Energy while Speaking Online
  • Being memorable with Grabber openings
  • Great ways to close
  • Stellar stories
  • Plot and transitions
  • Communicating data with impact
  • Finding and highlighting humor
  • Building on your strengths and more.

And of course, it’s a terrific time to focus on aspects of digital delivery. 

So lets get back together Monday and really use this final session of the lab to make some progress, refresh what you’ve learned, and to develop and practice material. Bring something you’ll be using in your work. Or try out new material with colleagues for friendly feedback. 

About Speaker Performance Lab

The Speaker Performance Lab is your opportunity to get hands-on practice and obtain real time feedback for experienced professional members of NSA Oregon.  Each month we focus upon a different aspect of delivering a WOW experience which gets you known as a “must see” speaker/presenter.  

We are not just conveyors of information; we are entertainers as well.  We must be engaging, enthralling and electric!  There is substance and there is style.  BOTH are critical to elevating ourselves above the plethora of speakers competing for those same engagements.

At the Speaker Performance Lab, we work on mating our superlative content with our natural dynamic style.
