Your Speaking Velocity

Here's a simple concept that will serve you well when speaking to groups.
What's your speaking velocity, does it match who you really are, and are you aware of all that it can do for you?

It's important for your audience to believe in you, that you are who they see. No one likes to be fooled or think they're being fooled, so being true to who you are when making a presentation, matters. 

Your speaking velocity is how fast or slow you speak. Too fast, and your audience can't follow. Too slow, and they'll wander. Right?

Well, maybe not so fast.

I believe what matters most is the matching -  specifically your ability to take your speaking velocity and pair it with the visual. Your gait, your gestures, your body language - do they all work well together? Or are you imtating or changing it when you get onstage?

It's important to start with the real you, using your everyday cadence and velocity - this brings believability to you as a speaker. Let them hear it, let them trust that you are real and genuine. That needs to be the foundation. 

Once you've established that truth with them, that you are who you appear to be -- you can start changing the velocity to pull them in, or rein them back out - create suspense, surprise, joy and amusement.

So, start naturally to establish trust, then use varying velocities to tell your story and to take your audience on a ride with you creating memorable moments. 

What you don't want to "wear a pair of mismatches socks" onstage - bring the matching pair, let them see and hear it, THEN you can a little crazy!

Creativity is Just Connecting Things - Yes!

"Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things." - Steve Jobs

The Inside-Out Speaker is a book about connecting - it's that simple.

"Mother May I? Yes, You May" - Be an Inside-Out Speaker

Hey you! Yeah, you.

So you want to do a better job os speaking (connecting) to your audience - big or small? Then I say, give yourself "permission" to be yourself.

You're letting the fear swallow you up - and the self-doubting. I see it all the time in my work. Heck, I'm guilty of it too.


You think you have to be that awesome speaker you saw last month, or the guy or girl that's getting all the great projects back at work. You think they have something you don't. Then, more doubting -- "These people aren't going to like me, I'm not good enough." "Why are they going to listen to me, they don't know me."

Your fears are feeding on your insecurities, and your insecurities build off these fears. I talk about this in the book, calling out those insecurities and writing out role-plays.

I do it because I want you to be able to identify them, so you can eliminate them. Once you start doing that - eliminating them - it all becomes easier, and everything that you're working for begins to appear.

Your voice and tenor (presence) becomes stronger; your "speaking fog" clears - you're more on-point and you become a better listener. And once you start becoming a better listener - those "magic connections" with the audience happen.

I see it happening for me right now as I put myself out there, and I've seen it for years in my work as a creative services provider; directing, producing, shooting, editing and more with amateurs and professionals.

Find out what your insecurities are, then work on eliminating them. You'll be working your way through Step One of my 4 Step Plan if you do -- and be on your way to realizing your goals.

Karol Clark talks about The Inside-Out Speaker

Karol Clark and her husband's Center for Weight Loss Success are succeeding in helping overweight individuals get healthy again. She was on location with me in downtown Dallas and had this to say about The Inside-Out Speaker, a book I've authored for struggling speakers now on sale on Amazon. 

Karol is a natural on camera, and even though I appreciate her comments, for me it's more about the fact she wanted to do this. Thank you Karol!


Hall of Fame speaker and national best-selling author Waldo "The Wingman" Waldman says this about The Inside-Out Speaker. 

"A breath of fresh air in a speaker training world full of the same old speaker techniques, I definitely will recommend this book to any speaker looking to elevate their presence and performance on stage. This book digs into the core fundamentals of what it takes to connect with an audience and deliver a program that not only touches the head, but the heart as well. Written in a direct and conversational style, the book is packed full of easy to implement tools and techniques to elevate one's platform success. It not only reinforced what I have been doing, but it also revealed some areas that I need work on."
