I want to make your job easier while making you look GREAT and leave the audience THANKING YOU for inviting me to speak to them!
Your audience will be instantly engaged, and they will leave inspired, motivated and empowered to “Break Their Chains and Achieve Success!”
As an individual with a physical disability, I have faced and conquered unique challenges in my personal and professional life. Although my challenges look different than other people, I have found that the lessons I’ve learned are beneficial and can be applied to all challenges.
One of the main questions that organizers ask me is “how do audiences respond to your speech impediment?” Yes, it can be difficult to understand my speech at times. However, the feedback from the audience members has been outstanding. They tell me that although it was hard for them to understand me at first, it forced them to be present and attentive, which helped them understand the rest of my talk. This lesson in attentiveness is an added benefit and is one that they will THANK YOU for. Also, to compensate for my challenges, I provide the audience with an outline of my key points and important quotes.
