At Speech Party, our enthusiasm comes from a long list of reasons related to the life-changing effects of empowering our words and voice with communications training.
Here's one we especially like:
Surprisingly, Warren Buffett and Richard Branson were once terrified of standing on stage - both billionaires have explained in interviews that overcoming their fear and mastering public speaking helped them to be so successful. Research is now finding certain communication skills, beyond public speaking, have a strong influence on how much money we make and especially increase the chances that we will be promoted or have leadership positions.
Public speaking is a learn-by-doing skill. We make practicing fun, speedy, and effective at Speech Parties. Here, we crowdsource (inspired by viral presentations) upcoming presentations and create a muscle memory for public speaking (similar to a team of athletes). Join us locally, online or apply to start your own Speech Party chapter.
Team up with a founder Shannon Dolan and create a coaching program tailor-made for your needs. You'll experience all the best Speech Party has to offer: neuroscience, crowdsourcing, and speed-learning all wrapped up into one-on-one sessions. Great for general practice as well as high-stakes presentations and pitches.
You know the good feeling you get when you take a dirty, dusty car to a car wash and 30 minutes later you have a clean, shiny car that sparkles in the sun? We've created something similar for presentations called Speech Wash.
Even if your speech is almost perfect and you just want to give it a final polish, this is designed to help all skill levels and is inspired by the creative crowdsourcing celebrated by Speech Party.
Presenters are never actually "boring" it's that they communicate in a way that makes listening more difficult for the brain. To save precious energy, the brain tunes out whenever possible and even the best speakers have a maximum of 8-10 minutes before their audience must be reengaged.
These workshops save the day, especially when we have an important message. You'll learn about "brain candy" for audiences in our high-distraction world.
