Today on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I chat with author, professional speaker, and entrepreneur Michael Port.
Port is the co-founder and CEO of Heroic Public Speaking, where he trains entrepreneurs, professional and aspiring speakers, and executives on how to give a compelling speech that changes hearts and minds.
He is also the author of six books, including Steal the Show, which shares practical public speaking tips. A former professional actor, he now focuses his attention on helping businesses use public speaking as a marketing tool, and often appears as a communications and business development expert on MSNBC, CNBC, and PBS.
On today’s episode, Port shares his insights into everything public speaking-related—from combating nerves to rehearsing effectively to the elements that make up an effective speech.
Questions I ask Michael Port:
- How much of public speaking is about the performance versus the content?
- How can public speaking advance the customer journey?
- What is the key to incorporating an effective call to action in a presentation?
What you’ll learn if you give a listen:
- Why the amount of work you put into a presentation should be directly proportional to the stakes of the presentation.
- How to reduce anxiety when approaching public speaking.
- What foundational five elements are key to building a great presentation.
