Exceptional Speaking

Helping you deliver sensational speeches

Delivering a great speech is a massive accomplishment. For an audience, experiencing a stirring rendition is both exhilarating and uplifting. Because a great speech appears so effortless, it is too easy to assume that delivery is a simple matter. Nothing could be further from the truth. Those who have mastered the art of successful speaking know very well that it is rarely an overnight phenomenon. Great speeches may be written in just a few days – but the delivery is what can make them great. That ability takes years of experience to hone. The stark reality is that delivering speeches is fraught with pitfalls almost guaranteed to unhinge the novice.

“Alan, most of the time it is hard to get honest replies from people about the content of my communication, and how I can become better at what I do. Thank you very much for your professional advice and help – I really appreciate it.”

The Exceptional Speaker Experience

An exceptional speech never, ever happens by accident, even though it may appear so. It is always the result of a delicate combination of trial and error, intensive coaching, and ultimately experience – depending upon the speaker. Just as exceptional sports people always have a great coach close at hand, so too do exceptional speakers.

If you wish to take your personal speaking skills to an exceptional level,  The Exceptional Speaker Experience is available to you. It is offered as a one, two or three day experience,  working personally with me and/or my co-author Paul du Toit,  either one-to-one or in small groups.

The experiences are held in exceptional locations around the world, tailored to achieve your goals, and guaranteed to produce results.
