During this presentation, we will explore some techniques you can use to gain your leaders' trust and tap into their personal stories—whether they think they're interesting or not. Rob Friedman will also discuss the basic elements of creating a presentation with lasting influence. Whether your audiences are employees, customers or clients, the foundation of great speechwriting is the same: Move them to action.

You'll learn how to:

  • Gain your leaders' trust and find their voice
  • Pull great stories out of your leader
  • Determine the "idea worth spreading" and distill it into a compelling talk
  • Create visuals that make your audiences sit up rather than put them to sleep
  • Craft a powerful ending that will resonate long after the presentation
