Public Speaking Coach

The public speaking coach who turns your fear of public speaking into a powerful ally

Public speaking is regarded as one of the greatest fears in the western world.

The great irony is that having effective communication skills is also the most powerful skill you can have in your personal and working life. You can turn the tables on this fear, making your relationship with fear stronger than just a friend, and into a powerful ally.

Fear is normal and to a certain extent it’s necessary in your public speaking journey, as overcoming your fears expands your comfort zone. If there is no fear at all, chances are you don’t want to improve to the point where you push past these fears so it becomes ‘a new way of doing things’.

Try reframing your thinking to  …. Fear is just suppressed excitement… then opportunities will be there to grab hold of, not leave behind. Change the foe to be your (uncomfortable) friend. One day, without really noticing, it will transform into your strongest ally. A good speaking coach guides you on this transformation.

Are you willing to feel uncomfortable for 5 minutes? Exercising is easier once you’ve started the workout . Conversation is easier once you’re already talking.  Public speaking is easier once you’re in the middle of it

Many opportunities in life will elude you if you’re not willing to be a little uncomfortable at first

STEP 1 - An effective public speaking coach guides you to build confidence first

At the core of public speaking and presentation skills training is confidence. Stretching your speaking comfort zone will happen gradually when you learn, then practice new skills.

At the core of public speaking and presentation skills training is confidence. Stretching your speaking comfort zone will happen gradually when you learn, then practice new skills.

The art of actually speaking is relatively easy to teach. Having the confidence to speak really well is the key. A good public speaking coach knows how to grow your confidence using many communication techniques.

That’s where you’ll start with your speaking training. You’ll step through confidence building with presentation skills exercises that will give you the ability to stand up and speak in front of other people.

STEP 2 - Adding layers of competence

Once confidence is built, your public speaking coach, David Julian Price, will implement his tried and tested roadmap of presentation best practice techniques so you learn the competence of speaking. David has performed as a conference and motivational speaker to audiences of over 2,000 people. He knows what works.

Competence can be broken down into 3 parts – Physiology – Design – Delivery.

Initially you’ll work on each competency separately until the concept is grasped.

STEP 3 - Putting it all together

Then all 3 competencies will be put together to hone the whole package. After practising you’ll grasp how to implement new presentation delivery tips and will be able to incorporate them into your presentations.

The end result is you’ll be a confident person who speaks competently !

Why your physiology is important?For some people physiology is a major issue. What is physiology, you may ask?

Physiology is…

  • How and what you look like when you speak
  • How you hold your body
  • How you hold your hands
  • How you use your voice
  • How you use your head, eyes, or any other part of your body

What sets David Julian Price apart from other coaches is that he specifically works on the non-verbal communication, because this is where the power comes from, particularly when you need to influence.

If your non-verbal communication is incongruent with what your’e saying, you may be sending the wrong message to your audience. An effective public speaking coach sees what needs to be changed immediately.

There must be congruency between the physiology, the design and the delivery

This is why a lot of time is spent on physiology. An effective, professional coach will guide you on how to achieve this so everything is in alignment.

Once you know you look confident when speaking, you’re confidence quotient goes up significantly. When your confidence quotient is high, you’re in a much better position to start building the foundation of a good presentation.

STEP 4 - Method of learning

This is a 3-part process – Demonstrate – Practice – Coach

Everyone has different needs. Your presentation style will be diagnosed, then you’ll be guided in the area where most help is required first. Presentation best practices are implemented at all times, which opens up creativity allowing for unique presentation ideas to evolve.

Build your presentation as solidly as you’d build a house.

With a presentation, you need a solid foundation to work from. It’s not dissimilar to laying the foundation of your home. A good speaking coach can save you hours of preparation time as they’ll give you the site map for your presentation, and how to build it.

Foundations  – Building a home – Building a Presentation

  1. Getting it ready Siteworks – Physiology
  2. Right design Planning, drafting, architect – Good design
  3. Materials Bricks, timber, cement etc – Intro, stories, message
  4. Delivery Of materials – Nuances of how you say it

As a professional speaker on the platform with 35+ years of experience, professional speaking coach and keynote speaker, David embodies all of these learnings and distills it down so you learn quickly.

He knows what to look for, and sees it immediately. One session with David Julian Price will improve your presentation skills immediately.
