Whether you’re a professional speaker who wants to get better, or a teacher who want to be more dynamic in the classroom, or a salesperson who wants to improve your presentations, or a nervous executive who’s called on to say a few words every now and then, Billy will meet privately with you (via Skype or phone) to maximize your communication skills and shore up your weaknesses. He’ll watch your videos and listen to your audio recordings to offer pointers. He’ll teach you how to be comfortable in your own skin, retaining your natural style while delivering powerful and interesting points that are uniquely yours. He’ll even write gripping stories or funny lines to spice up your presentations. He’ll walk you through the process of identifying what you’d like to say, constructing an outline, and then fleshing it out to take your audience on a roller coaster of emotions that will make the speech unforgettable. If needed, he’ll rewrite your entire speech to make it more powerful and easy to understand. Public speaking is a skill, not an inherent talent.

Billy Riggs will come to your location and train groups of up to 20 people in the finer points of public speaking. Each attendee will develop a short speech and deliver it to their colleagues, providing an opportunity for feedback and live coaching. The seminar can be presented in as little as a half-day, or as much as 2 full days, at your discretion. In the two-day seminar, Billy will deliver written advice to each attendee on the second day, providing a permanent aid for them to take home with their video of the speech.
Billy will help each participant develop one or more of their personal life experiences into an illustration to incorporate into their speech.
